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)

Chinatown NYC

I'll be there tomorrow, from EARLY morn, to ??... I know it's supposed to be wet out, but I'll be on the lookout for bikes (even though I won't have mine...). If you're feeling ambitious, swing through!

You're taking a road trip to ride around chinatown?
Once you're done buying all the fake Gucci and Prada your heart desires, swing by the Times up! space on 49 E houston (btw mott and mullberry) at around sixish. It's movie night and you'll be able to check out the bike repair workshop downstaris.

Not quite a road trip, more like a bus ride.

And not quite riding around since I said I won't have my bike. I'm going to get some dim sum, etc with a friend and her family.

Due to my obligations with them, I won't be able to go my own way really, but if people were going to be in the area, I never pass down a chance to check out bikes and meet new people!

Be sure to walk to Mulberry St. and stop by Ferrara's to get a cannoli and some espresso afterward. I'm still savoring a half pound box of cookies from my visit there last weekend...

Ah, I was just there for the day yesterday. Spent most of the day in chinatown, got congee, went to a ton of markets, etc, then went to flushing for dim sum. Next time I'm there on a weekend, I'll definitely hit you up eddy, I'd love to see your DW!
