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)

Cleaned the filthiest RD I've ever seen. I had to scrape about 20 years of collected grime and gunk off the jockey wheels with a metal pick. Looks nice now though.

Put a couple ounces of sealant in my tires this morning. Less messy than expected.

Got a puncture (no flat though) last night coming home. Pretty good size chunk of glass.

Do you use Stans? The only thing I regret from playing around with tubeless is that now I associate my mtb with the smell of latex

Today I had to cut my ride short due to back pain. An old injury flared up again and for a while, being on the bike was one of the few comfortable positions I could be in. But it didn't last and the final dismount confirmed that I made the right decision to quit before hurting myself. Will rest up on pain killers tonight and see how I do tomorrow.

It is good you had the presence of mind to stop, when you are on the bike, somehow it doesn't seem as serious in spite of the pain.

Hope you get better soon.
