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'm back!!

Hey all, after taking some time off from cycling and pretty much every other hobby I have, I've come back and in high style. Today was my first big ride (read: not to work and back or the store or a friend's house) of the season. I started at my house with some friends, rode to a dude's house that has a car, drove to some trails and did 62 miles/100K on gravelly trails. I was on my trusty SE Lager, and the other guys had Madisons and Track Pros. It was awesome, and we all think it's gonna be a weekly thing. Anyhow, it's good to be back.
