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)

i did. i didn't meet anyone from kentucky, though. probably saw you.

it was all right, i've heard other years were better. definitely a lot of interesting opinions and information and discussion going around.

A ton of my friends went this year. I had to work. I went last year, and the best part was waking up in a church at 7 AM Sunday morning, hungover to all hell, then getting passed a joint by a 52 year old man on the front steps before i could even light a cigarette.

A few friends from a local SDS chapter who I'm planning a walkout with went, heard it went well, but I haven't spoken to them in depth yet.

yeah, but i skipped ghost mice. i've seen them a couple of times and i'm bored of that style of folk punk by now. from the depths was pretty good, i thought.
