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'm out there. I've seen maybe 2 other fixed riders. You can catch me hauling groceries on the daily.

I'll be in Hoboken after I ride the Holland tunnel. I usually only go to Hoboken/JC to drink and chase after girls. Blame it on the bars and yuppies!

Yeah man, Nelson is CLASSIC! He's hooked me up so many times it's not even funny. Once he moves to his new location you may catch me in there helping him out on the weekends...

The Tenefly shop is also pretty good. I haven't been there in a while but I'll have to swing through again when I have time...

Alright! now we're talking!! Triple C the guy with the Canon was my buddy (asian dude).
We'll all have to organize a ride/beer meetup sometime. Maybe mash 'round Downtown JC/Hoboken and then get a few brews somewhere....

im in for a ride as well

Doesnt matter when I should be around all of memorial day, either riding the fixie or road. Sounds like we can all get something together, NJ is really a great place to ride, and im always looking for new routes and such to ride. Cycling WMD is one of the funniest/informative cycling blogs out there btw.

I'll be in Princeton from the Fall, as I am gonna be an exchange student at the University from the UK.

Don't really know how far that is from the rest of you.
