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)

Today I operated a SAG wagon for the Mulholland Challenge, a brutal ride 120 miles with 13,000 feet of climbing. I wish I were out there riding it. I met a bunch of senior long distance riders that hold the California Triple Crown jersey and now I want to join their ranks.

Today I rode my bike around the inside of the store I work at... they close in 2 days (going out of business) and are getting pretty lax about what we do there. So I did some laps around the place, left a few skids on the carpet, and threw a football around to kill the rest of the time.

Today I rode 30 miles and decided to give up on my saddle rail mounted bottle holders. I also lost one water bottle. I also drank too much coffee at work tonight.

Finally got a stuck seat post out of a 40 dollar bike I bought a couple weeks back to have a cheap normal shoe bike. Hopefully I can get it painted next weekend and be riding it by May.

It's both, actually.

^^^ Well, at least you don't have to worry about mowing the grass. Meanwhile, down here it's not much better. Temps in mid 40s and dropping, North wind in the upper 20s, gusting to 40+. No doubt my furnace will be kicking in shortly and I'm wearing a sweater inside my house. We're expecting a hard freeze tonight; good thing I haven't removed the outside faucet covers yet.

Good news is the doorbell should be ringing any time now with a couple of packages from San Diego.

I could have guessed the second half of this sentence just by reading the first half.

So you're getting ninety bucks back?

Vans are the worst shoe ever made, bunch of skinny footed jerks.
