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)

Yo, 90 degrees ain't that hot. I skate in hotter weather all the time. Is it humid in Chicago though? In San Diego it's dry heat so it's not so bad.

yeah it was actually pretty humid that day, I've skated in dry 90 degrees (in some places in Minnesota it's not that humid) and it usually doesn't get that bad, heat index was probably like 105 that day or something

This is a crappy photo of me shooting my first AR build earlier this year. This was in my 'Tacticool' phase. It doesn't look anything like this now.


It's a little more practical now...
