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)

sooo nice.

i'm house-sitting at my parents place... it's too hot to sleep so i went crusing around for a late night ride to all the places i used to ride when i was younger. It was sooooo good. I should really get a front light... but then again, maybe i shouldn't.

poor use of stream of consciousness, and did that thought involve a question that you forgot to write or did you just feel an overwhelming need to share a personal experience with a group of people that don't care?

sorry, just trying to be a jerk. solo riding at night, especially in the summer is the best!

wtf is house sitting? Is the house going to drown in the tub? It it going to try and stay awake all night eating ice cream? Is your house suicidal and your on watch? Does it have an inclination to run away?

At least get some blinkies so the night stalkers may think you are an alien coming down the street.

And curb feelers. Every bike needs curb feelers. Especially scraper bikes.
