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)

Everyone Loves Mayonnaise

Got an email from Dennis at the fixed gear gallery today.

he's been getting inquiries about the "riding fixed" book and is going to reprint a batch.

They should be ready in a few weeks.

I don't remember what he charges, but it's nominal. After he pays for the printing and running the website we split the difference, which last year was two bottles of cheap red wine (Big House Red) :actually, not that cheap, kinda tasty too.

And since we're talking booze, bought a sixer of Schlitz the other day. They've revived the brand and are trying to squeeze into the Pabst Blue Ribbon word of mouth, cool market. Gotta admit, it tasted good. Better than Pabst, which I also like.

Just the Kiss of the Hops!

I love Schlitz. It is my second favorite inexpensive, but solid to Genesee Cream Ale.

Six packs of Schlitz got me through a really bad job one summer and for that, it'll always have a place in my heart I am positive that most people would never know the difference between a $0.60 can of Schlitz and $5 import beer at a bar.

Old Milwaukee...all great, inexpensive beers...miles ahead of Bud and Miller Lite.

Milwaukee's that is another story.
