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)

Here is the Sports Illustrated article that is mentioned. It's a long read.

F.Y.I if you eat Factory Farmed foods everyday your taking in just as much drugs. So we are all guilty at some level. LOL

Then I should be much faster than I am and if I stop, I'll be slower. I hope you aren't on the PR team for the local eating movement.

Good news hairnet. I don't like people who are taller then me.

As for the story, it was kind of interesting but at the end most evidence goes to disprove the likelihood of him actually using these drugs, because as said in the article - no one has seen any performance boost from using said drugs.

Of course he took supplements and drugs. Its physically impossible to do that. It says in his book that he takes pills and everything. So does everyone else.

He was never proved guilty from all the blood and urnine test, and so was the trash found carrying drugs. They never found the items in the bag containing anything but trash.
