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)

I knew a mechanic who went there 15 years ago, he said it was worth it.

I hope this will stop the ole spray painting habit of yours.

This place is so awesome, I'm learning soo much trying to hold as much info as possible and reading all my papers when i get back to my hotel. The instructors are so knowledgeable and nice any question you have they have an answer too and are very patient. I also passed my hub exam today with flying colors. Can't wait for reg class then wheel trueing class tomorrow.

I went to Barnett's a few months ago. It is a really good school. I learned quite a bit. What classes are you taking? I did BRO, SST, ESS, and took the BSE exam level 2 afterwards.
