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)

Cool! The ride will alleviate the guilt of eating cookies when I shouldn't be.

And wave hi because I live about 100 feet away from that place. The cookies in the window always look really gross though.

That is a dope idea. If I lived in NYC, I would be taking advantage of that all the time, unless they are $8 cookies.

Clearly you DON'T live in NYC. $8 cookies are commonplace in Manhattan.

They are the best cookies in the world though. I think they bought their recipe from Neiman Marcus for $3000

These are far from the world's best cookie (I
make those), but for $1 (regularly $2), you
could do worse. Both times I went in here,
the girl at the counter was really snarky,
despite my salt-of-the-earth Midwestern
charm.

You wave first. Otherwise I'll be waving at random women w/in a 100' radius.

The first time I went there the girl at the counter told me I should bring my bike in next time. The second time I went in (with my bike) she said, "Isn't it much easier to bring your bike inside?" No snarky-ness at all.

Maybe you caught her on off days?

Or maybe she just doesn't like salty, earthy midwesterners. Maybe SOME people find that charming, but a shower wouldn't hurt now and again
