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)

Hookers get boring after a while

Not all of us are zombie robots who can plow for 48 hours straight and not get bored.

NuVision seems to be the undisputed favorite amongst the locals here. They carry soma, chrome, etc.

I was in Vegas this weekend with both of my fixes and I gotta tell ya...... I never once thought about bikes. Puked, sk8ed amazing parks and ditches, did the tables, doubled down, looked at a perfect asses, and wondered why I don't live there. Back in CO today and riding again. Sometimes you just need a break.
