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)

BEautiful Fall Day

Its a gorgeous 70 degrees out. Nice day if it were fall--but great day for a ride nonetheless--leaving work early and taking serenity out for a spin.

it's really nice here in new york too...

somehow all that humidity + heat in the summer/snow in the winter just seem to fade when days like this roll around...

Yes, yes it's beautiful out. The air is crisp, dry pine covers the ground, and there are brown leaves, just a few, on the ground.

But what you see is not fall, my friend...its the early death. We are in a drought. Lucky for the recent storms and a cooldown, now if we just had enough water to slow the drought. Too early, too early.

I'm grateful for the breeze, though. Takin' The Gimp out fer a ride on the trails. It's all downhill from there (literally).
