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)

Chicago: Free Bike Tune Up

Tomorrow, Wed (4/25) from noon to three I will be at the Park Hyatt Chicago doing free bike tune ups for anyone that shows up.

Come to the loading dock in the back of the building on Rush street.

Tell all your friends

I work at the PHC. I've become known as the "bike guy." Once a year I bring my tools to work and fix all the bikes for the employees. I do it to encourage people to get out of their cars and commute by bicycle.

I used to ask for a donation and give it to charity, but I don't want to deal with money. I do it to spread good will. And to spread the faith of the bicycle holy trinity: play-excercise-transportation.
