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)

Got clothes.

may get some black sugino 75's with the money I got from relatives yesterday. I'll probably get some more money today, so may just use all that money for a nice back wheel, that I won't **** up so much on and get a new rim for my current back wheel.
