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)

On the other hand, with painkillers like these alcohol would be like throwing bricks into the Grand Canyon.
What'd you end up on painkillers for?

I got some great help for a joint issue using prolotherapy. It was once considered an alternative treatment but I think it may be going mainstream. I don't know if it can fix a spine but it does regrow new joint tissue.

I experienced a burst fracture in my lower back (2008) and have permanent nerve damage that cannot be corrected surgically... I consider myself fortunate I can still get around without a walker or wheelchair (sometimes I need my cane) and that I can still feel the fun bits. Cycling is still something I can do and something that my physician and physiotherapist recommend as long as I don't overdo it.

I always comment that I spin like a gerbil on crack and this is because I only have one good leg and a lower gearing and higher rpm lets me ride at a good clip without causing axial loading issues to my back... position on the bike is also really important so no upright riding cruisers for me.

Samesies, local bar has AC and their coolers are blown so no draft beer today. Getting my chill/buzz on before I do a 10-15mile boredom ride.
