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)

Where The Rubber Meets The Road

Gentlemen, don't need to tell you how great today is, so take the afternoon off (tell the boss you ate a bad bratwurst) and meet me on the streets. I'm leaving now and heading to the lakefront. Gonna spend the afternoon on my bike.

and on this ride I'm going to be singing a song, it goes like this: "I know you'd like to think your sh#t don't stink but lean a litle bit closer and see roses really smell like boo hoo."

My wife loves that song.

Hope you don't try fixing your make up while you're riding my the lake and have to swerve and end up in a ditch.

BAD BRATS CRIPPLE COMMERCE
Bogus News Service(BNS) March 21, 2004

Business in Chicago was brought to a near standstill Friday afternoon when thousands of workers failed to return to their desks after lunch, citing "bad bratwurst" as the cause for their inability to work. FDA officials are still seeking the source of the tainted sausages.

i was there, where were you (actually, i was struggling home with a saddlebag full of "business casual attire") maybe you were the person on the orange fixie who kept getting smaller in the distance and made me feel sad enough to drink alcohol when i got home.

Nope, that wasn't me, although I fantasize routinely about being the envy of other cyclists. Might not make Bodhisattva happy, but I've never made claims on being well balanced. I suspect even the Dali Lama would have been cursing under his breath had he been riding fixed in that headwind.
