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)

Dogs fixed, bike aint.

And- tho not cycling related- I was talking to my glamrock guitarist friend Sunday about his sweet new girl. I said "Love?, baby- It's like a sunrise- everyday you want to wake up to a new one."

More like bike's fixed, but I'm sure as hell not. Wink wink nudge nudge.

Good one!

Again not cycling- same bar ( I work there Sundays.)

Sweet waitress, we were discussing my latest at endeavor (sculpture)-(she is an actress)
and my friend was a little upset- she says " I hate it, I can't make ANYTHING!"

I say "well dear, I'm sure you can make love."..........

Color of roses...sweetest blush I ever saw.

Next time, I'll fix both for free. But 165 will fix all the rest in the men's room of the corner gas station.
