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)

Last night's Unnamed Monday Night ride with some guys from RaphaCycleClub and SFFixed:

First real ride on the 722ts:



Up O'Shaughnessy



Chillin at the top of Twin Peaks



Legion of Honor group shot



~30miles, 2kft elevation gain, 70 fixed gi, and a lot of fun. Can't wait for next week. What a way to break back into fixed riding. Pics courtesy of John from RCC.

Someone needs to explain to me how you guys look so dry in that Bender's pic.

Seriously, when I got home I was drenched, dirty, and salty.

This was the last 20+ mile ride that I did on the Kilo Team before switching to a Soma Rush. Rode from Waipahu (central Oahu) to Waikiki and back.
