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)

Sunday morning beer ride. Started with 6 bikes but one guy lost a crank 2 miles in and no one had the right size wrench to fix it.
35 miles and 5 beers for me.

Some more crater lake pictures.



Got caught in a cloud for minute.



The descent was the best part by far, just rounding a corner and stuff like this opens up.

Rode to the LBS after work with a friend. There's a cool warehouse door in the back alley.

First time I've gone on a ride other than my regular commute and of course I forget my bottle and pump... Luckily there are vending machines and convenient stores every kilometer, and I didn't get a flat.

That Centurion conversion...something about it I really like. It speaks to my sensibilities.

The first night ride our group has had. Disregard silly glowsticks in the wheels, it was a large commuter event and they handed them out.
