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)

I forgot about that - I had stuff from performance shipped to someone else, and they were like, wait, you didn't order three small things of deodorant? It's not on the invoice.

Nope, Nashbar never sent me any freebies, but I ordered some stuff from stockroom.com recently, and they threw in a sample pack of lube, and a red Tootsie Pop.

Sweet!

the peanuts is one of those things in life that always makes me smile, except for the cartoons they were doing in the late 90's, those were crap, too preachy.
