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)

you doing it 165? I am thinking that it will be a fun ride!

According to the flyer I snagged there is full support as far as sag vehicles. I also heard that there would be a UHaul rented on Sunday to get everyones bikes back from Milwuakee and we can just take the train.

Don't they serve alcohol on that train? Sounds like fun!

The Hyatt in Milwaukee is decent. I think it's about $100 a night. It's right in the center of town, which is nice

I'm probably doing it with my roommate. Hopefully I can get a hold on a road bike (I don't think I'd be in competition on my fixie). We'll see though, mebbe I'll just head up there fixed. Is anyone from Chi heading to Columbus this weekend?...

mmmm are you sure that it is this weekend dumpstervegan? The one that the Columbus Cripplers are putting on is on the April 24th, not this coming weekend.

Is there one this weekend also?

well darn then. I will be in Columbus for race on the 24th.

Hmmm I do hope that there is a race this weekend, that is a pretty long drive for nothing.

Good luck with it.

Its so lame that everyone is coming to columbus the same weekend i have to leave. AND i'm headed to wisconsin of all places, for a wedding. FANTASTIC. Like i wouldn't rather be riding in the alleycat that weekend. Or at least showing up to meet everyone.

Def. taking my bike to the wedding though. Plan on getting very lost in madison and showing up late to the wedding, probably drunk, and doing the reading they've suckered me into.
