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)

Portland, OR - I will be in you again 10/20

My band Rosyvelt is playing on Friday. You should ride there on your fixed gear or singlespeed bike and say hello.

Unfortunately not. It looks like we'll be headed back to Seattle early Saturday.

That's rough.

Hopefully I can convince my bandmates to take short Veloshop detour before we head back on Saturday.

My gf is thinking about heading down for some craft show/fair that's happening in a few weeks, so if that happens I will definitely be down for riding. I can only look at crafts for so long.
