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)

Congrats!

I look forward to an unannounced visit once you guys are all nice and cozy in north park.
It will most certainly be wheel related considering I've held back a "want not need" order because of shipping.

Today I ...
Drove the MGB to work because it was pithing down and I was knackered from riding to work in heavy, cold rain the rest of the week.
Worked like a Trojan all flamin' day and was mentally knackered by lunchtime, let alone knock off.
Bought a pizza for dinner and a bottle of rum for afters
Decided to annoy you lot on the forum.

Tomorrow, I've got 70 - 100 kms of riding ... with the dog in his trailer hooked on behind ... unless I sleep in or am hung over or both or it's raining or there's a vowel in the month.

This morning my dog went head to head with (with what we think was) a sonoran mountain frog/toad, who's skin is psychoactive. We washed his mouth out for about 10 minutes but he still seemed to trip for about 20-25. He's fine now, so it's ok if I laugh and say that I found it kind of amusing.

Ya know what a dog does when you put those little booties on them for the first time, it was that, x100.

Today in trying out this new Minuum keyboard on my s4 and although it is pretty nice in concept, it's a pain in the ass to type bicycling words with. :/

Weather was perfect for the commute today, got "lost" on my way home taking my weekly mirage up to 140, I do not really want to but I think I need a new stem for the kilo, I just feel a tad too stretched out.

Met a sqrl at the co-op. She had just started and shadowed me for most of the shift. It's strange how 21 seems so young while I'm only not much older.

I stayed late at work today to clean out/fix mostly everything my new truck, Homeless guy broke into it and smashed up the ignition and left a whole chicken in it around 4 months ago, it was probably the worst smell I've ever smelled in my life. All clean now and tomorrow I'll drive it home.

It took far longer than I expected and didn't get out of work till dark time and I left my lights on the Kilo. Scary times happened.

Thanks. I took a frame building class and based the Geo of this frame on my Lemond Poprad cross frame but gave it longer stays for additional stability.

Wait 'til you're 40, 21 will seem just right.
