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)

Trim function exists for a reason. I don't see the issue.

Jk, it's cause my jeans get caught on the teeth if I'm on the small.

I'm usually not, no climbing on my commutte from Oakland to Milpitas, just a little rolling along Mission.

haha just bustin' yer balls for exhibiting "big ring syndrome"

a lot of roadies have it - i kinda do when I ride my training bike cause it has a compact.

on my caad9 (53/39), I do nearly all of my solo riding under 23mph or so in the little ring.

I thought the small ring was just for looks?

Heh, there aren't many hills near me so I usually only cross chain when I'm downshifting before a stop. I try to keep my cadence at 90 or above. I'm also riding a compact so I don't see the small ring too often. I was in it more often when I was riding a standard.

I know this POV has been done to death, but I still like it.

Nice easy ride in the country today.

Here's a screen capture from my riding partner's video of last year's Mt. Tam Double Century.

Here's some pics from a mtb ride on a very dry Folsom Lake.

Folsom Pond. There's still no rain in sight!

Pretty sure I climbed that hill this weekend. Is that by Bodega Bay?
