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)

First things first...get a bike. What size do you ride. You need to stop by the Bicycle Kitchen for sure, here is a link...
http://www.bicyclekitchen.com/

If you are to be makin it to shops, got o Velo Pasadena(it is really just the best museum)...
http://www.velopasadena.com/

If you make it down south, def check out Bill Ron's...
http://www.billronbikes.com/

Food ****...there is just way too many hott spots. Def holla @ a taco truck, go down to Little Tokyo, maybe come down to my ville for some Korean BBQ or Pho. If you have any other questions just PM me. The Bicycle Film Fest is this weekend and there is always crazy **** happening, it is just finding it.. This place is huge, you can not do it all.

Kyle

If you like breakfast, check out the Griddle on sunset and fairfax in hollywood. Best pancakes ever. And way more than any human should be able to eat. I like the rasberry and lemon.
