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)

From 12/29 Bike Forums Ride: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...Back-Together!
68 miles and 6500 feet climbing, 2 local mountains. http://ridewithgps.com/routes/3817213

The Meet Up


Group Shot: The 1st bike on left and last bike on right are fixies.


I have a 50/34 compact and 10 gears on the rear cluster, so 44x17 all the way up Mt Diablo astounds me. (and beats me to the top)


One of the single speeds at the top of Mt. Diablo, the rider in the yellow vest on the far left.

60 is PERFECT for me, though for some reason when its hot like 90+ it gets me really amped and i turn it up a couple notches

You desert folks blow my mind. I'd take a 30 degree day over a 90 degree day every time. Me and my buddy Carl out on a 30 degree morning fixed gear round, 50 miles through the countryside out of town.

Gross, here is a ride last week in maybe 35 degree weather. Lived 24 years in Phoenix but I can't handle that heat anymore.

What can I say, some like it hot!

Seriously though, when I lived in Michigan, I was wearing shorts and flip flops when it was above 50. My first year in Phoenix, I was in the pool in March, floating around in 70 degree water. Now, I won't even get in the pool until the water is above 85 degrees. It's weird, but your body changes when it gets used to 100 days over 100 degrees. Plus, our 105 is about the same as 80 with humidity anywhere else in the world.

except when you're wearing light colored shorts and it looks like you have a sweaty racing stripe down your bum when you walk around.

From a brevet offered late January in 2011.
I look at the pictures and still can't believe we did that ride.
It's not being offered this year, mores the pity.
