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)

It must be summer.

My neck is pale, too. Maybe it'd time to try a recumbent. And I'm only half-joking.

I do miss Seattle summers, at least they only last a week or so. Oh yeah, I'm sorry that you had to be in Redmond.

If all you need is strap sweat to make it summer, it starts in February and goes until November.

Proof for me that summer is here would be how angry the cagers are of late. I guess the nice weather pisses them off.

Every day when I get to class I sit in my desk and sweat for a good 5 minutes or so. The other people must think I'm weird.

So far I'm still enjoying the temps down here. Granted I keep thinking of the upcoming days were you can start sweating just walking to the bike from the door.
