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)

I'll be in SF next week

Visiting my sister, but she'll be at work for about half the time I'm there. Anyone wanna go for a ride and let me borrow a bike? Any cool places I shouldn't miss? I'm super psyched; I hear it's awesome out there.

Do your own adventure, go everywhere you can. The traffic is tough, the hills, the track crossings, the trollies and the people make the city one of the gnarliest/ best riding destinations on the planet. Hit the Wharf and EMB areas for some flatter stuff, the Mission is next up the scale, then North Beach and the Haight. You're gonna walk the hills and be scared $hitless on the down hills. It's all what makes it THE riding city of cities IMHO! I don't run brakes usually, but run both in that city. Good Luck.
