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)

there's gotta be some sort of recovery drink that doesn't taste awful when you add some booze... that way we can knock off two birds w one stone . A man's only got so much time.

Why am I not surprised? Well, I am riding the T d'I on my Little Wing. I'll know tomorrow whether that's a wise choice.

Today I finally figured out the source of the rattle between my rear fender and rack, and fixed it. A smooth and quiet 30 mile ride followed.

(Yesterday) did my first cyclocross specific ride of the year. Hill run-ups and off-camber turns & descents. Felt good. I just need to get some longer rides in.

Test rode a space horse disc as a possible replacement for my Wolverine. The 58 felt great, and reach was shorter than my 54cm Wolverine. WTF Soma...

So, now I get to wait until the frames are back in stock on QBP.

Today I figured out what the creaking was coming from the bottom bracket area on my TK2. Yeah, it goes all the way through.



LBS was going to call FSA and check to see if they had just a NDS arm or would replace it. Worth a shot I guess. Suggestions for new cranks?
