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)

That's right down the block from where magic messengers used to be, anyone know if they're still around?

And is Sam Fitzsimmons the same Sam that used to have that warehouse full of bikes in pigtown? Played in the Motor Morons? That guy's had nice track stuff for many years.

I, too, read it that way, but I read the comment about beards and didn't get it.

Has anyone ever seen Clone High? Just wondering...

if your answer was no, then my next question is "then why should i?"

but seriously, i haven't. but you should go rent skyscraper. and by rent, i mean buy, because that city does not have the movie at all.

I will be there, hopefully. Good call on the Blue Bird Artisanal coffee. The Velocipede shop is nice space for this event. I hope this continues to happen here because Bmore needs more of this.

Party will be at the same spot at the swap. I think music goes on at around 8-830ish. Two kegs. I saw them with my own two eyes tonight.
