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)

rode to...Home Depot to pick up some washers the LBS didn't have. Cool thing about them is they let you bring your bike and/or dog into the store.


Do they let you buy handlebar tape?

I was picking up some washers for a set of brake levers I wanted to swap in so I hadn't wrapped the bars yet.

First road ride on Mt. Tam. 20 years ago I did the dirt version several times. This time I drove a friend to San Rafael so he could do the Mt. Tam Double Century. I did an out-and-back to the summit of Mt. Tam. No stopping on the climb except to change a GoPro battery. I took all the mountain and view pics on the descent. More here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/76286317@N05/

Took this picture while riding the other day. The balloons (about 20 total) were pretty surreal from a distance. Sorry for crappy instagram filter
