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)

Oh, and today I took second in the points race and third in the 3k pursuit/TT. I won gold in the omnium.
Nice!

I pretty much die in the mass start races. There are too many enduro guys that drive the pace up too high and I get burnt out before the sprint

I don't get how he spells it "fexy" in the title but manages to get "fixie" in the description. Also:

Today I got a serious buyer for my TV finally after dealing with a countless amount of low ballers on Craigslist. Once my neighbors give me the cash this week I can get some new wheels and be mobile again!

For some reason I feel like we have different seasons.

Hemispheres or something.

That's a northern-southern hemisphere thing, not eastern-western.

They do have daytime when we have night though, so you can take off your lights.

Very dry during the winter, at least in my area. We have a humidifier, otherwise we will shock each other all day.

Today, a guy on a motorcyle swerved into my lane while taking off from a stop light (I was driving)...at the next stop light, he decided to yell at me for getting too close to him. He said if I hit him or one his "biker bros" I'd have a huge lawsuit on my hands.

I informed him that I swerved so far out of his way that I nearly hit the curb, that I too was a "biker bro", and that the guy driving behind me was my boss, who would be an excellent witness if there was such a lawsuit. This shut him up, but I still threw out "you're delusional and a horrible driver that should learn to ride your bike in a straight line."

I hate people.
