Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

And I'm back...

So about a month and a half later my hand is mostly healed and I can type easily, ride the fixie, open a bottle of wine by myself, and generally enjoy life again.
I got the cast off about a week and a half ago but the doc told me to try things out and take it easy, and it was not fixie ready at all (I could barely hold a pen). Now I've done some strengthening and can finally ride again....it hurts so good. Looks like I might miss my first XC SS race this year though because its still tender, and my fingers don't line up quite right due to awesome military medical care, but I could hardly care right now.
Thanks for all the kind messages and e-mails...that was probably the most depressing time I've had in the last few years. I guess now I'll be posting again and all so yeah.....word.

You both suck! Rancid, because he never mentioned anything, or at least I didn't see it. WK because he doesn't post anymore. By the way, what happened to Skitbraviking? Where is that guy at?
