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)

4 items of interest and one question.

1.) Practicing track stands on a ship at sea isnít safe.
2.) You can fall into the over head.
3.) Wearing your helmet prevents dents on your head.
4.) Dents on your head wonít help with MPB.
5.) How do you store your camera in your bag with chain/lock/etc also in the bag?

William, I sew- so I'd be happy to make you a sub-bag.

Also, Crumpler has little sub-bags that you could put your camera in.

Lastley, you could use some closed-cell foam (such as the material used for hiker's padding on backpack trips) and glue it together with a good foam glue.

Helpful?

I'll be dropping a line for sure. We're a bit behind schedule, we lost one last night see blog .

At any rate, I pulled duty pull in day which means...

SQUAT!!!

'Cause I'll be off by noon.

I'm looking forward to Island Ruckus 2005!! I got a few priorites there: ride, drinks, ride.. And harass anyone I know from the ship too.

Why not just get some PR tool to sew a camera bag for you? He might even make a safety net for you out of some parachute line for trackstand practice if you give him some boots or something.
