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)

Anyway, here's me having fun. I hate seeing photos with people having such "business" looks on their face. Trying so hard to hide the ear-to-ear grin that so many of us get when we "put the fun between our legs".

Here's the Detroit Fireworks Bike Gang from this year...


Arctic Alley Cat fun. That's me with my yap hanging open. This was after I got stuck behind a bus that salted my lungs, but I still managed to smile (after I was done hacking up a lung).



This guy came riding a Velocipede to our Drug Wars Alley Cat we put on! That put a smile on everyones face, especially because he rode halfway up a spiral parking garage ramp.

That makes me miss when Against Me! were completely awesome. I had that shirt, but I can't wear it anymore because I'm too fat.
