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)

Riding down to SoHo for a dance rehearsal, over to DUMBO for a chocolate tasting outing, over to the upper west side for a blues party. Looks like I picked a good day!

Yesterday I went with some friends, rode down the East side to South Street for drinks (nothing like some Pina Coladas on the pier!), leisurely ride through Battery Park City along the water. My friend who was riding my single speed was dying - though I offered to switch with him a few times. Capped off with pizza and South Park.

Leaving in a bit for Columbus Circle.

If my memory seves, you need new look cleats before you need new ATAC cleats.

Yes, the nagging persists, even half a continent away...

Had a blast - though taking the single speed over the Manhattan Bridge for my very first bike bridge crossing was an adventure (including the double circle I had to make by following the signs to the bike route - learned my lesson on that one!). Looks like the tire is about to pop off the rim though - think all those broken spokes are catching up with me! The wheel barely free spins at this point - no coasting at all and it pretty much stayed at one speed on the downhill part.

48 spoke rim is in the mail and should be here this week (along with a pump - yay!). Can't wait to upgrade these rims! I'm probably going to be flying after getting used to pushing these so hard.

Beautiful day for a ride - felt really good to be out there.
