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)

SF sunday afternoon

So what's up with all you SF people this weekend? I went riding today and saw a bunch of random people riding around. The weather today has been amazing. Anyone want to meet up tomorrow afternoon for some riding and beer, or maybe just beer? Looks like weather will be incredible tomorrow as well...

Doh. Missed the ride, but I'm down for next saturday (the 12th). If anyone wants to go, I'll hang around at the Pagoda in Japantown from 11:00 11:30. I ride an old Italvega with green paint with two white stripes.

I'll try to make it out. I had wheel issues on Sunday, dubteka came over and lent me a hand (and a chainwhip) and I now have a working bike again.

man, I really want to, and I'm going to try. I run my own business, and I have jobs to finish tomorrow morning, no choice I am afraid. Maybe I get a break somehow, thanks for the offical invite, hopefully there will be another.

I made it out to the Pagoda by 10:55 AM, practiced trackstands, and attempted some backward riding (never came close ;(

I left at 11:35 AM.

Did you mean 11PM?

I actually finished up my work, so I have most of the day free, if anyone reads this and wants to ride PM me, I'll try to check periodically
