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)

Are these races showing on television? If not, are they on the internet (legally) somewhere? The Olympics website?

thanks.

I heard the velodrome is covered from the bones of Tibetan monks.
True or False?

I want to rant that the logistics for TV scheduling and NBC's attempt to make an online schedule suck balls.

+1

Olympic Weightlifting doesn't get much coverage either. Let's all sit back and watch Form Dancing, or some cute subjective stuff like that.

The times are awful. I am so glad I am at home and not at school though. I leave the 21st. I can use my parents DVR. If I was at school I would be missing all of these. Perfect timing.

It looks like the Olympics can be watched live here: http://www.beijing-2008-live.tv/. Haven't tried watching it myself since it looks like you have to sign up . But that might have cycling.

That site is worthless. As I suspected NBC is only supporting Firefox/IE and Windows/Mac so us Linux-heads are left in the dark, as usual. I guess I will just get my Olympics fix on actual TV..

It isn't on until about 6 or 7 pm EST in America (volleyball and a few others are on first), but I am pretty excited for it.
