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)

It's like bizarro world. Snow covered roads but not a flake anywhere else. Looks like fun!

This forum is kinda it's own separate community away from the others. Although yes, it technically should be in the road sub forum, yummy and others wanted to share them with us, the people who visit this forum.

The 41 isn't as fun as this forum. People here have what I would like to call 'personality'.

It's just really boring, to be honest. I can only read so many threads on "this lightweight wheel or THIS lightweight wheel - omgican'tmakeadecisiononmyown", To shave or not to shave my legs?, Di2 or Ui2?, omg why no football team kits?, blah blah blah.

80+ miles is hardcore. Which saddle were you riding? I've done centuries on my slr and it kills me around the 80 mile mark

took the San Gabriel River bike trail to the Coyote Creek Bikeway and into Fullerton, and mashed around with some mountain bikers on the Fullerton Loop.
