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)

what's the alcohol content of a PBR? I love it, but it just takes so many to get "tipsy" (as the kids are saying nowadays)

I'm glad to see others have a personal economy based on PBR. Damnit, now I want to drink but I'm stuck in this wretched cube.

P.S.
PBR = the People's Beer for the Revolution

I tried to get a smaller chainring with the 144mm spacing at my LBS the other day - the only ones they had were 60t plus. I didn't want to have to get a really huge gear for the back, so I had to pass...
