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)

Who here is from the DC area?

There will be a series of events happening in the next few months around here. Who is in the area and who would like to be involved?

I don't know about drinking ponies, but maybe instead of riding the bus we buy ponies and ride them. I know I said ride ponies.
