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)

Fax Packxs Chicago, fax friggin' packxs

Hey Chicago
I just finished my credentials and need to be reminded of slow asphalt and fast drinks. Who is in for some sips and trips this weekend? We gots company too...WithNail is haunting our very own Haunted Town. Give me numbers, not voices. Where shall we meet? Strike fear into the heart of the Village? Mayhem in the Park? C'mon you lousy jerks - your loved ones hate you and we all need to win back the streets:

ira you're not leaving until may ... that still gives us 30ish potential hangout days. and don't forget the dunes mass send-off. i want to get a trailer for that ride. to carry stuff, you know, bottled stuff. does indiana allow fires at the dunes? if so, we must have a fire. i really like fire.

does anyone want to watch my cat this weekend? he's really nice and friendly and loveable and snuggly. his usual babysitter is potentially going to be out of town. i'd bring him to you tomorrow ... he's like a living stuffed animal. he gets along really well with people and bikes.

plus he comes with two brown, plush japanese-created dolls known as DOMO-KUN (non-NJS). They threaten to kill kittens in the name of god if you "bother" yourself. I hope that isn't Aesop on the run in that pic...

you must be losing your memory ... that's okay, it's common when one reaches a certain age. because if you recall, aesop is completely black, well maybe a dark chocolate brown.
