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)

Oregon Handmade Bicycle Show - Sunday 11/11 - Portland

Anybody going? I already had plans to be in Portland with my bike (taking the train down), so I'll probably be there.

I keep forgetting about it. Hopefully I can get off work at a decent hour. So its in the forestry center, right near the zoo? Cool, Can hop the max up there and then just take the hill back into town.

Take the MAX up to the Zoo. Right across the street is the "World Forestry Center". You can't miss it.

Wait, why isn't Vanilla bikes coming? Poopsies, looks like they are charing admission too. I read last month on bikeportland.org that it was supposed to be free.

Yes - one stop before the Zoo on the Max Line. Goose Hollow stop. Try the Goose Hollow Inn. It's a cozy neighborhood spot right next to the Max line.
