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)

Yeah, and go laugh at all the toolboxes running from building to car with only a jacket sleeve for protection.

Just don't forget the chain lube.

i only made it to the corner b/c i was really trying to ride while holding an umbrella. so i walked to the bodega and bought a six pack. this rain is driving me crazy. i'm in nyc and i think it stopped rainning for half a minute this morning. enough time for me to ride to the train station. ( i was running late so i had to jump on the F train)
