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 know he's scared. he won't even answer his phone. and it's WAY more than 4 hours old. hasn't even left the front page. he's got no excuse. if you're reading this from you're corner somewhere, show up for the alleycat tomorrow night. let's settle this.

a visit to MKE is indeed in order. i will be down to see A Tribe Called Quest, in September. But likely sans bike. The Madison bike massive keeps talking about a trip to the drome, i will need to make it happen asap.

Haha, I feel so honored.
But, unfortunately, I don't live here anymore.

And I can't believe you bought a pake after how much **** you talked about mine.
Ridiculous.

ouch. that hurts. i see how it is. I seem to have revised my entire thought process as far as bicycles go.

aside from all that, what are you up to? you still live in milwaukee, right?

Yeah, I'm still in Milwaukee.
I meant I don't live at bikeforums anymore.
I've migrated to chifg.com (you should come too. As should Jamie).

But yeah, I've been ****ty with my phone. I haven't really been up for much, it's been a rough 6 weeks or so.
But, I'm going to Minneapolis with some Chicago kids tomorrow for the weekend but will be around next week.

word. we'll have to get in touch for real rather than on the line. the chicago board would probably be good for me. i may be spending a lot of time there.
