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)

Whats with the rash of bicycle messenger documentaries nowadays? It makes me want to be a posenger less and less, if only because I may be confused with those that ride just for the image, not the love of cycling.

Heh, I just thought about it. How many more cycling collisions are we going to see once all these crazy antics are revealed to the mainstream? Man, lots of folks are going to be getting hurt.

Pedal was decent - it had Dexter who is always fun to hear about.

I've had no luck in getting Red Light Go - it's been what, three years now?

Not that i tried to obtain a copy, but i did watch it at a viewing at Times Up. Maybe it'll get some airtime there sometime soon.
Also, it was a pretty good flick. Lots of fun!

I volunteer for Times-up and I spoke to the person responsible for the movie line up on thursday night about screening red light go again, his answer was that it will be shown again, but he thought its a little too soon to re-show it at this time. So look for it in a month or two. www.times-up.org
