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)

lol. we have really slippery grounds when it gets wet at UW. Anybody who's been there knows of Red Square, extremely slippery.
I had fun sliding around until i went over too far to one side and went down.
ah well, fun while it lasted.
