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)

this is why i love living in nyc! the chinatown bus makes it sooo easy to get to other cities. kilgore, you and i have been doing an awful lot of races together lately, too.

i've raced in four cities on this coast, but i'm hoping to get out to SF for the NACCCS next month. i've been dyin' to head out to San Francisco. this is the best opportunity i can think of.

haha yeah man, whether it's a boston race, a new york race, and now even a philly race i end up seeing you. but that's ******** awesome, seeing people you know from different cities in different cities.
i'd really like to do NACCC but i have no concievable way of getting to san fran, and don't you need to be a legit and registered messenger for that or is that only CMWC?
