    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.
    the hipster myth.

    i practice vagabondery.

    me. im sitting at work in Hartford right now wishing i was out riding.

    i dont have a fixed gear bike yet (just a few other bikes), but im planning on getting one within the next month. so i should be on the road soon.

    give me a shout when you get back to school and maybe we can get out and ride.
