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)

Absolutely no rhyme to his reason, he would take anything. My neighbour who is pushing 80 found an old crusier that was stolen off his porch a few years ago, so that was great but yeah, it was a mess. The cops really were at a loss and I have a feeling that a lot of folks walked off with bikes that weren't theirs, they just provided a great description of the bikes and the cops signed off on it. That was my sense of it all, I could be wrong...

Just went for a ride, didn't have any real mishaps. I pushed myself a little hard though, so I got some stomach cramps.

I had a weird thing happen to my bike when I wasn't on it, I will try to find some time later today to illustrate it somehow, but it might be hard to do...we will see.
