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)

Just sold my Fizik and a wheel to get this so that my bum could be comfy
Wiggle.co.uk has some serious deals on Brooks due to the conversion rate. You can get a Ti version for cheaper than a steel version here in the states

that sounds like you still have a lot of parts to go.

I sunburn easily and tried a few hats last summer but none fit snuggly enough to stay on when riding, had a drawstring for windy days and did not look excessively dorky. Found this one recently and am pretty happy wearing it riding:

http://tinyurl.com/pxjmly

It comes in several sizes and there are versions for wet weather too. I do have one of their full-on rain hats but the brim is too wide for riding in any wind.

Maybe I'll fit a wire to keep the brim up like a real cycling cap.

That is an 02-03 Subaru Impreza. He has the JDM hazad light button in it. I know because I own an 03 and it looks exactly like that. Also, Look at the gauges. Under the tach, it says Impreza.

(edit: scratch the impreza on the tach. picture quality is not there to see that)
