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)

awww. BFSSFG romance.

so, i thought i would share. since this is ALL YOUR FAULT, BFSSFG folk.

once upon a time there was a Meat N' Greet in Chicago, where a girl from DC (and her friends) and a guy from Chicago who didn't really read BFSSFG came. Guy gets hit by a car during the race, girl drops out to help him, they meet, (this thread explains,) yadda yadda... two years later guy gives girl a ring.

Cardstock + Chimblysweep = TLF.

thank YOU interwebs, for bringing people together. or at least taking the first step toward making that possible.

(I know there's at least one other BFSSFG romance that resulted in a ring this fall, but I'll leave that to them to share...)

It's worth logging on after a long hiatus to say that I'm so happy for both of you and it's about damn time!

And it reminds me of the good old BikeForums days ... sigh.
