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)

Hartford Fixed Gear

I'm at the University of Hartford in West Hartford, Connecticut. Is there anyone else out there in the Hartford area riding fixed gear?

Hit me up!

there's a crew from hartford that usually shows up to connecticut races. i know there are hartford alleycats. new haven ones, too. new haven scene is really nice, but i've never raced in hartford. and there are riders in middletown; matt who runs ghostshipclothing(.com) works at pedal power in middletown and is a damn nice dude. there's are myspace networks for the new haven scene and probably the hartford scene as well.
