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 will be leaving home at 10am from Sunset Park. There should be lots of racers and spectators.

What weather report are you looking at? Everything I see says high 70s, party cloudy and 20% chance of rain.

fyi: the west indian parade will be starting at 11am and going past GAP, it will probably be pretty packed. I live right by there and my neighborhood is already going nuts.
