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)

bummer

moving all my crap up to gainesville is apparently going to cost a buttload which means i probably can't get a new bike now. i guess i will have to wait a few months...or just live off of ramen noodles for the next year...this is a tough call. anyone ever have this kind of thing happen? you finally decide on what you are going to buy and then something gets in the way! horrible i tell ya.

but you made it....and by gainesville's average cost of living you'll have the money to buy that new bike soon enough.
nice meeting you tonight.
see you tomorrow at critical mass (?).

i might be going camping but i highly doubt it if the weather doesnt clear up so if i don't go then i will definitely be attending the ride.

hey i'm in the same boat. was planning on getting a new bike this summer, but i gotta move instead. i think i'll be happier having my own place now though. i've had roommates for too long.

it looks pretty crappy outside for camping or riding bikes.
I don't think anyone's going to show today.
