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)

come live in philly for the summer!

Yo, so I need to sublet my room for the summer. From may until september.

I figured I'd give anyone on here a heads up. Considering I live with a handful of kids that are down with bikes.

It's 270 a month. and right near Benna's cafe in south philly.



I'm getting desperate.

Serious. I'm paying a bit more than that down at Rittenhouse. This city has some good-but-cheap places but also has some "HOLY CRAP are you serious??" places that are priced out of this world.
