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)

Indiana University does that every two days before halloween. The cops show up just to make sure no one runs over zombies.

they really werent weirdos at all, most of em were young 15-16 and 19-20 year olds just walking, not getting in to it at all. the zombie hunters however looked good and were actually in to it. it didnt look as enthusiastic as the san Fransisco event.

Yo Retem, I think I talked to you at the qualifier about your Surly and Cetma rack. At the time, I was wearing a Jimmy John's jersey and baby blue helmet. Sorry for not calling out the BF connection, but I figured your Sacto connection wasn't enough to say anything.

I have to tell you, I can't help but admire you guys, although I am a very law-abiding citizen. People that ride their cycles and try to expand the rights of cyclists and pedestrians, well, I like the intent.
