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)

Fixed Gear In Columbia Maryland!!!

Hey, I saw someone riding on dobbin road around 1:12 today in the snow, I yelled "right on!" at them. Was this YOU? If so, just wanted to say howdy!

have you been to the CM in raleigh yet? my friend from greensboro and i went once. it got broken up by the cops really quickly, so we broke off with a couple friends and went on our own ride. do you ride fixed? last i heard, no one in raleigh was.

I wasn't in Columbia, but I was out there in the College Park/Greenbelt area just like I am every other day. It wasn't too bad except for a few sections were the snow was packed down, but that was just because I wasn't used to it. A brake would have been completely worthless.

he seemed pretty cute, atleast from the quick glance I got. but the chances of hap-hazardly finding a gay fixed rider are very slim. this is my life.
