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)

My boys? Not so much. The MASH dudes that I ride with wear helmets and mostly ride/race road bikes these days. All growed up, maybe? I dunno.

Also, maiden voyage of the newly upgraded/adjusted/almost-finished townie. I've named her Gojira and she is amazingly fun to ride.

I feel so tall riding it normally!

Glad you (don't) approve.

It was my club's Friday morning Coffee Ride. It's pretty srsbznz, as you can see.

On the real though, this thing is a ****ing BLAST to ride. It's wonderful being able to go run errands and not worry about locking it up and such. Also, upright position ftw; so relax.

Love the PNW. Short ride by the lake at sunset was a great start to a three-day weekend.
