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)

Hey $0.00 -
this does count towards upgrade. You should gather the troops and come out!

I am really tempted. Today is a rest day but I assume the clinic will be pretty chill. We'll see.

Are you sure they count? Randy told me specifically that they did NOT count towards
an upgrade. I was planning on hitting Kenosha so I can Cat-up faster.

wow - whatever. I have also heard that Kenosha points "are not always recognized" due to the lower turnouts at Kenosha.

Seems like everyone has something to say. Meh - I am going to ride around, meet some people, and llearn something new.
