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)

Visiting Portland

So I am finally visiting Portland (I have romanticized picture of a biker's heaven) in October to see Sigur Ros. We're hoping to do the trip carless. Wondering if any of you have tips on places to stay, where to rent a bike, and what shops to visit.

Thanks in advance.

You should check out A Better Cycle while you're there. Those guys build good bikes and have a great attitude. You should also check out Zoobomb on Sunday nights. ..and don't forget to go to the Donut shop and have a satanic Donut. As far as food goes, I like Don Pancho's on Alberta somewhere around 19th, and there's a good Thai place up there as well (at like 21st?)

Why don't you post this in the regional discussion? You might get more responses there.
