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)

Philadelphia: Trexlertown Swap Meet, October 7

Anyone going? We are going. We could fit two or three others in the car if need be!

definitely going, but 80% sure I will be riding up. If anyone wants to ride let me know... a huge caravan would be great fun.

(would most likely ride up Friday and camp there)

grrrrrrrr. i was trying to make it, but flights are too expensive this late in the game. my boys are going. im super jelly.

please find a dozen frames you love but can't afford, then buy one of them on a credit card with an outrageous interest rate (because that's what i'd do if i could go there).

Like I said, we'll have a car. Paul (Paul and Pista on the forums) might want to ride up so Rikardi151 you might have company. In any case, we'll be there with room in the car.

cool. Maybe if you have some extra room you could bring some loot back with you. I am planning on buying a touring frame there along with other shiz. I know I will have at least 5 other people with me so far. Paul, if you see this you should PM me.

That's the craziest thing anyone has ever said to me! Anything involving bikes is fun, plus buying stuff for my new bike is even more fun.
