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)

sorry im just getting back to you, i just got back from a camping trip. bike party just happened last friday through oakland. try to find them on facebook, or just google eastbay bike party.

ok.

The Great Highway was recently repaved and omg it's fantastic. Perfect backdrop for some (8, to be exact) 5 minute intervals this morning with the club:



Sorta wish I had brought out the track bike. 49x16 would have been perfect for this!

Jealous. We finished the Fleche on that highway and not all of it was so great, especially after riding 22 or so hours.
