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)

Yeah he tends to only like stems longer than 130mm for some reason. It's actually quite a bit too long for me, I just haven't gotten around to swapping it out.

I got bored and build a 1x6 speed with a Sram TT shifter on the bar end. I played around with the gearing and I really love it. This will upset all the roadies out there for sure

I have a DX-3000 frame sitting in my bed room. The down tube is slightly impacted so I'm saving the frame to make a little townie type thing

Needs pretty much everything... I suppose I could use some of the items I currently have, but it is far from being able to be put together...

Went out for an easy ride on the Ron Stout today (easy except for the 15-20mph wind with 40mph gusts). Altogether, a nice fall day.



And just because I figured out how the timer works on my camera, here is me and my Stout taking a break mid-ride:

A late afternoon maintenance session for my mid-1990s Caloi Elite:



The leaves are turning quickly now. Tomorrow I am planning to ride up a local ridgeline where there is a clearing (no trees), you can see down the valley both ways for miles. Hopefully the weather will hold so I can get some pics.

Mid-autumn in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Nothing really exciting, just Forest Service roads in the Jefferson National Forest. Some are maintained, others weathered to bedrock. Always enjoyable to be here .











It's hard to believe that I started riding this route more than twenty years ago, but just brought a camera today.

Are those Sram shifters with the shift paddles taken out?

And now for something completely different... my extrabike which I built up in '08 that has been working hard ever since and will be one of two bikes I use for winter riding.

It can carry a few kegs if need be but usually gets used for grocery runs and errands... have never ridden a more stable winter bike than this.

Looks absolutely beautiful... you need to bring the camera more often and I rarely leave home without mine.
