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)

This brings up another great Co-op memory! Somebody had come in and donated a drilliumed bike. It looked like and most likely was just eyeballed with a hand drill and cleaned with a countersink bit. It was terrible! There was a similar one on eBay not too long ago too.

Full-time professional job: suit and tie
Part-time job: slacks, with decent shoes, and a button up shirt, tie optional

For an interview at a bike shop, I'd probably also bring a shirt to change into in case they ask you to do a bit of work to show you know what you're doing.

Finished a 200k brevet under the full moon, and turned 50. Yesterday, actually.

Today I bought some sneakers. Riding to work in my Dr Martens every day is giving me some not-so-awesome athlete's foot.

How does some nice dark denim and a mechanics shirt/polo sound?

And shoes, I have no in between. Have skate shoes, and wing tips out the ass, but nothing in the middle.
Sperry's? haha.

Are any of the skate shoes clean/relatively newish? I'm sure it will be fine. Just look neat and presentable, like you care about getting the job and put some thought and effort into making a good impression.

If it's as hot in NY as it is here, **** cooking anything inside - especially steaming.
