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 am listening to the new Daft Punk. It's disco. I enjoy it because I like dancey shiny stuff for summertime jamz.

Cheers!

Having gone through only a little bit more than half the album, I can say this one sits up there with Discovery in my book.

Today... I'm downloading the new Daft Punk, thanks for the heads up!

I also did my first ride in triple digits. 100 degrees on the way home from work tonight.

It's nothing at all like Homework. Closer to Discovery than anything else they've done, but really it's own thing altogether.

Pretty kickass!

SBS used "Get Lucky" on their intro to coverage of Stage 9 of the Giro yesterday.

Got home from work, knackered - my ride home is best described as 'brutal'. Didn't feel like cooking, so decided to duck up to the shops for some pasta. My son had to go to soccer practice, so I waited till he left ... in the car
Okay, I've got a shopping bike, I should use it, so, with my legs howling in protest,I pulled my shopping bike off the wall ... and discovered the tyres were flattish.
Tyres pumped tight, I headed out, bought some acceptable (for supermarket quick cook,) tortellini and sauce, a block of therapeutic dark chocolate and a bottle of brandy (nothing like self indulgence).
Although I did the trip at night, the traffic was well behaved, I gained more appreciation for my shopping bike ... and the heavy downpour waited until after I was home before dumping half the Southern Ocean on my house. Doncha love the cycling gods, they can be a bit narky at times but their heart is in the right place

Today I rode a couple miles (but not all the way, thanks bus bike racks) to work because I got 4 hours sleep and am mildly hungover after a fun night of beers and karaoke. It was actually warmer leaving the bar last night around 1am than it was when we left the house at 8pm. Weird weather, man. Gonna hit 80 today.

Had a dream last night where I trashed my front wheel, and when I took into the shop, homeboy tore it in half like it was a roll of fruit by the foot...

He then went on to order me a pair of bright red Deep-Vs without asking.... if 'dope fixies' are taking over my dreams I refuse to sleep.

Also, plan on taking a nice ride this afternoon; might even try and get my brother on my ol beater, we shall see
