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)

Not a low blow to the winner but his yellow jersey podium pic from this year's TDF made my day. My sqrl actually pointed it out to me.

Also started planning my vacation for the fall. I plan on hitting San Francisco, Portland and Seattle on a hobo bus trip up the coast. Not bringing bikes cause ain't nobody got time for that, but should be fun if I can make it work.
Are you driving a hobo bus? If not look into the bolt bus, one way tickets to Seattle for twenty bucks and it's got bike storage.

Nope, not driving. Will definitely look into Bolt. Greyhound has some pretty cheap fares as well, and I'm probably splitting my tickets between cities since I want to spend a few days in each town. Also open to hostel recommendations if anyone knows.

today i really want to go on a bike ride but i'm stuck waiting for my deadbeat landlord to come fix the ****ing shower faucet. apparently the "ferry is down" so he's either speaking literally and a bunch of people died a watery grave death or he's just late and needs two full days to fix the plumbing. ****ing over this overpriced rental house.

Apparently you get a half point if the opposing team misses a goal attempt. Most points wins and the winning team gets a cow. So there's that...

Wisdom teeth out today. I think one of the blood clots fell out (when I pushed an ice pack to my face a small red jelly thing popped out) and now I'm scared of getting dry socket, which is supposedly super painful. On one side it's all stitched up, and on the other side it's just a hole

Just sucks a lot. I feel like I did everything right and still had it go wrong.

Today I received free beer from a local brewery. I make the brewer coffee, he gives me beer. Fair trade.
