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)

I really, really wish I could, but I'll be in freaking Oregon, and without a bike no less. Sounds like a rocking event.

I think I might come down on the fixed crosscheck. Been a while since I've had it out on any serious dirt. Anyone know where the ride will take place? I read the website and it pretty much just covers the pre and post ride locations.

i think the racing will be at belmont. i think...

which is pretty tight and technical and not really the place for a fixed crosscheck; if you wanna be fast anyway.

but then a lot of it is just BS and beerdrinking anyway i assume. so i say come down on whatever, it will be fun! i dunno how much of the course you'll be able to ride (really depends on how technical they decide to make it).

btw - you got a PM (i lost your email address)
