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)

To the DCC and Chicago: A ride this Sunday?

Who's in, up or down?

Been a while. I'm thinking meet at Filter or some such, get some nourishment and then ride. A real ride, maybe drop by Yojimbo's (looking for a Chris King) and then ride, ride, ride a real ride.

I will be at Yojimbo's early early installing my toothbrush holder (doing some odd jobs for the man) and then I would be up for a pedal about starting noonish? Wanna meet me there at noon?

I'm finishing up my arm on saturday from 1 pm on. color!!

let's have two rides. (?) please. or let's just ride on sunday and screw skit. sorry, that's not funny, it's offensive.

if you guys ride on saturday stop by taylor street (1150W), I'll be there until at least 5 probably 6.

fyi I raced for about a mile with a friend screwing around. caveat: I was on his bike which is huge even w/ the seat lowered and i was riding w/o proper shoes. but i realized that less riding this fall has gotten me more out of shape than I would like. I was winded. It sucked. Therefore I propose we maintain a decent average speed on the next ride(s).

There. Simple. Sweet. And Simple.
