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)

chicago fixie monthly/weekly ride

i rode with the folks from chicago freeride on saturday night where they crashed the LATE ride. it was a blast and some of the nicest riders i've met. but they organize a monthly ride, complete with beer stops, anything like this in the way of fixed gear riders here in chicago?

01) Meet somewhere at some time.
02) Ride
03) Eat, drink and be merry.

Saturday nights are bad for me personally, always something going on - how about a Sunday morning/afternoon ride? Either way no worries - so long as folks get together to ride.
