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)

huh, i remember hearing about that now. i suppose it'd be a good thing to do...anyone in c-bus doing this?

seems like with a bit more planning we could have done like those anti-smoking people down by the statehouse today and made grim reaper costumes with state-shaped cutouts saying how many people smoking kills in ohio each year and put statistics and r.i.p.s on there...."be careful, cars kill" and whatnot.

I did our local one. It was short but cool. One car passed with a few young guys yelling some obscenities and racial slurs(don't know why on that). It's ficken hot outside though. Mid 90's at dusk. LAME!
