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)

Another Nashbar NOS winter Gem.



Almost as garish as the prismas, but look a little warmer. SPD friendly too. Do it to it, ya'll.

Sandals seem to be popular with the winter biking crowd because you can jam in as much sock and booty as you like and they won't be too tight. Combined with a neoprene sock they can be pretty darn good. Versatile too because when summer comes along, ditch the socks and booties and you're laughing.

hehe whenever I think of Vermont I can't help but get the first scene from Super Troopers stuck in my head

cop: "Where you boys headed?"
kid1: "...Canada"
kid2: "C-Canada. We're going over the border to canada for some french fries and Gravy, sir." kid1: "Poutine."
cop: "Canada, huh? Almost made it."

haha found an mp3 of it

I'm seriously considering those sandles for my summer
touring. Seems like it's be a pretty great way to keep
cool on those long, hot roads.

woooord, i just got those diadoras two weeks ago! even better, they were in the returned merch section so they were even cheaper than their already cheap-cheap price. so comfy i've worn them all day waitressing and barely noticed.

i like to describe their color scheme as "puked on by the 80s."

and fyi, they are more greenish in person. the yellow is more fluoro-yellow-green and the green is less teal. it might just be my monitor that makes the picture yellowish, though.

What mail order art school do you have to flunk out of to design shoes like that?
