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)

AAAAAA Whoa! I may or may not race, but I would definitely show up. Will it be gear friendly? Cause I know some folks down there who have bikes, but they might be geared.

Hott!

well, we'd prefer to keep it fix/ss only, but if someone shows up and wants to race, we won't be mean.

probably.

i was thinking more of a post-race invasion of the blue plate if there's a good show going on, but machismo would be cool too. hmm, now that i think of it, that'd be a good place for a checkpoint.
