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)

Plus, and I don't know if you've ever been to Davis, but there isn't much to do here if you're under 21.

Maybe go smoke some pot or something? See a movie? There ain't much else.

It generally doesn't matter where your college campus is.

Drugs, sex, and alcohol is everywhere.

No, I know, it's a huge college, but I'm saying that outside of that it isn't a very happening place.

Or at least it wasn't for me growing up. Davis has been soured for me because I grew up here, and want something else. Maybe I'll come back. Later, though.

I have friends that lived in Davis before going to school at the UC. They say it's just like a continuation of high school.

I'm with you on that, I grabbed a cheap friday the 13th one and remember that I like tattoos and need to get my leg done this year and can finally finish my arm in the spring.

Today I bought the last of the parts I need to get my truck 100%, I got a lot of looks carrying a truck grille while biking home but come monday, I should be 100% road legal.

This is true. Even if you grew up in Manhattan and got into Columbia you ought to go someplace else. Portland to Davis seems like close to the ideal distance for college. You can drive it but you aren't going to take your laundry home for your mom to do every weekend.

I enjoyed half of my college experience, but the one thing I never liked was that I went to a "commuter" school, where (mostly) everyone went home on the weekends.

While I went to cal, a good 85% of my high school UC admitted class went there. So yeah pretty much^, thankfully there was a free bus shuttle to there and from (does it still exist? or has it been axed by the regents to fatten up their personal paychecks?).

Are you saying from Davis to Berkeley? I haven't heard of that, but I wouldn't really know.
