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)

oh man, you just cant catch a break.... except on your hand.

I rode this morning to work... it sucked... too much ice! My back tire spun out a few times when I tried to go too fast. I didnt fall, but came close a few times. I just kept thinking about those tires that Legalize_it has for the winter, and how those would have come in handy this morning. Man, those would have REALLY come in handy this morning. I dont mind the snow, but if we get all the ice this winter, that we got last winter, I think I am in trouble.

Feel better!
