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)

Weekend/birthday ride

A new thread to discuss the BlastRadius birthday ride this weekend, this way we can let the BCRC thread die.

When? - This weekend sometime
Where? - Around the city then to zeitgeist for beer
How? - On our bikes
Why? - Because

What day is best for people?
My vote is for Sunday, but what do you guys think?

I'm trying to get out of going boarding on saturday, been boarding for over ten years and it just seems too expensive now. I love spending the day in the trees but $55 for a day of flying through the trees or $0 for a day of dodging through traffic, hmmm...

So how many people do we have for the ride then?
