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)

Philly to Austin

I'm headed to Austin, and will prolly be there for a couple weeks trying to do a drug study and will have my bike. Any rides going on/advice? Post up. If you see a guy with a punx/metal as hell denim vest riding a blue Scapin, thats me.

um hmmm... "drug study" yeah.... gottcha.

Have fun in Austin. One of my friends described it as "A carnival, wrapped up in a town fair, dipped in a circus, and placed in a flea market".

Have fun.

Yeah, i grew up in Texas, so i've spent a pretty decent amount of time down there. Just never really took my bike with me down there. I might have to throw on a brake, cause Austin is damn hilly.

Oh, and a drug study is how I bought my bike.

Which company are you doing a drug study for? I've done my fair share of studies at Cedra Research...fast,easy money.
As for events/rides in the near future I haven't heard of anything..I'll let you know if I do.

I'm actually not signed up for any. I'm just hoping to get the info once i'm down there. Do you have any phone numbers you could hook me up with? I'm just looking to make some cash while i have the time.

The number for Cedra is different from the one on that link. It's (512) 345-0032. They usually have a message with all of the upcoming studies.
I personally like Cedra the best..shorter in-house stays, decent money, pretty laid back. I'd try them first.
