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 grew up 2 blocks from a "Carleton Ave" and never really thought twice about it....and I haven't seen one since. I thought of stealing the street sign one day...I didn't have the balls. Plus, I'm sure that me being a 16 year old who lives 2 blocks over with the same name would have been suspect #1.

This is weird to me, though:


The Cape Cod Postcard Club has meetings inside of me. http://www.capecodpostcardclub.com/calendar.html

Postcard Club meetings is probably something I'd go to be not admitting it to anyone.

Also, why did they put a period at the end...?

Squirrels can't drive. And I doubt you can handle what I have in the garage. Or ironically shall I say pay what I did today to just fill it up, PREMIUM ONLY. Any guesses of what I drive?
