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)

I'm there. Make sure to post another reminder a week or two before the actual event, though.

Was that you at the cargo race, then? Or were there multiple gold Campy cranks there yesterday? I remember seeing one, but I don't remember what the rest of the bike looked like or for that matter who was riding it. I need to start paying better attention...
