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)

no way i'm going out at all in this today.
my university got closed this morning... so when i woke up at eight i saw the e-mail and vowed to sleep until at least two. i accomplished my goal and now there's no way in hell i'm leaving my house... except for when i run out of cigarettes, which will happen sooner than i think.

This one is from January, wasn't too bad.

We've had a pretty mild winter(as usual), I've been out pretty much everyday since January 1st. Had some pretty hairy days where I wasn't really interested in taking pictures, but we've also had some where the snow completely melted away and we got some nice warm weather.

The fixed MTB is HOT! How do you like the bars?

Love the snow shots, wish it would snow here
