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)

Kissena Velodrome for Beginners

I am a nube fix gear rider looking to try out track racing at Kissena Velodrome. I have heard that they have a beginners night or class or something. Their website isn't very helpful. Anyone out there know about this? Thanks.

there, now you don't have to do dumb things to make your self feel better.

am I serious?
wow...woof woof
chill out, Skitbraviking is a friend. You can step off your soap box now. I have edited my original post so etchr can get on with insulting others.
I might add this: I certainly hope that BlindRobert plans on riding track tandem for safety's sake.

Merton you are an assh*le. the guy is an etcher and spends six hours on ever post, first etching it into a tablet and then having it traslated into ASCII. does that make you feel smart? if so, Merton you are much smarter than me or anyone else... even etchers, because you type.

Here's the joke in a nutshell:

It's really, really silly to assume--based soley on the poster's name being "etchr"--that he can only type by first etching it into a stone tablet and then transferring it to ascii.
