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)

2nd Annual BFSSFG MnG presents:

The Fool’s Gold Rush
San Francisco, CA - duh
August 11th – August 13th
Friday (whenever you get here) to Sunday (whenever you go home)

Alrighty boys and girls! We have a weekend, we have a name, we have 2 days/2 nights for hard riding/drinking/****ing (if you are lucky) AND WE HAVE A TANDEM TO FLIP.

So now….a real show of hands of all you ****ers that can handle the west coast and want to get dropped on some hills. The more of you that come out the more info you get, *****es! Just kidding

Much love from the SF planning kids!

I'll be in town. Kick it with me and I guarantee you'll drink some good tequila and eat some good burritos, tacos, and tortas. I'll get you drunk and provide entertainment for you, you can't lose.

Let's get a count of people who are in for sure so we can start assigning places for all of you to park your bikes and pass out.
