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)

Ride Pics

I like seeing where other people ride. It's nice to see a change of scenery, even if it's just through the interwebz.

I've been riding this route a lot lately:

Thanks, today was the first ride since I finished the build. Freewheeling feels weird (I'm used to fixed), love the hoods.

Saturday a week before Christmas Eve I did a 44 mile country road "ramble." Most of the roads were unpaved.







The bike I rode. It's the one I usually do my commuting on:

Xmas day on the boardwalk at 20th street next to Newport Beach pier. Didn't get my bike in the pic as I was straddling it at the time.

Sterling, VA - I passed a very fit blond woman on a carbon trek on way home today, she grabbed onto my wheel and sat there for last 6 miles or so. she stayed right with me until she got off the trail with a nice goodbye.
