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)

Almost got hit by a deer. Then he juked right and ran up the road a bit. Then I grabbed my phone.

Nah, the dawes steel bike. I tried to convince her on at least the Windsor but she's not the outdoorsy kind of person and kind of broke so just went with the cheapest. I'm sure it will out last her desire to ride bikes.

Devil's Week 600 by pdewey2 at Garmin Connect - Details

Garmin is wacked about the elevation. This ride had 7500 meters of climbing, give or take.
75gi is too tall. I'm going to 70gi or so the next time I do a ride with this much climbing.

Today I took my first steps without crutches in two weeks! I had a fairly low-speed spill while wearing flip-flops and messed up my left foot (chipped bone, 8 stitches, swollen as hell until a couple days ago). This is the first milestone on the road to recovery and it feels sooooooo good.

I remember feeling so good when I was finally able to support my own weight during my car collision recovery.

Today I finally got to riding dirt with the Straggler. I kept my road tires on but it is begging for some monstercross tires.

Went to the SD county fair with the sqrl. Ate all the food and lost all the games! (well except for one, the last one)

One of the best fairs IMHO.

Today, we drove home from Door County, where we camped since Friday. Yesterday, I rode a century on my fixed gear bike.

How was it? Hilly terrain? I'm considering doing RAGBRAI (ride across Iowa) next summer on my SS Steamroller. I may wimp out and run a front derailleur and tensioner setup.

Today I fit a 29er 2.35" front tire on my Straggler. Needless to say, I am very excited by this.
