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)

sure.

and the bandana thing? it comes in handy for a variety of reasons. i don't really care what people think about it, i just do it. if you've never seen it before, then i'm sorry it offends you, or gives a subject to ridicule. i'm not a gang member. if anything i guess i'm a biker, per sae. as for the pedal thing, it's just my form of expression when i ride. and the satisfaction i get from my bike is tremendous. it's kind of like letting my bike know that i trust it. and have unconditional love for it. i've been able to stay alive for this long i guess. anyway, what does it matter? if it works for me, and makes me happy, why should it bother you? because i'm not "following the rules"? worry about what makes you happy, and just enjoy the ride.

riding clipless pedals with appropriate shoes is not a rule. it is just something meant to help you. don't play the i'm expressing myself, **** the man card.

bandanas are handy. i always have one on me, though it's usually on my person, not my bike. around my neck so i can keep out fumes/cold/rain if i need to, but i can always get it for the other gazillion things bandanas are handy for.

I bought a tomicog. I've only had it bolted up for a few days but so far so good. Worth it in my opinion. I have plans to try out fixed mountain biking later this spring with thing geared down to 32x17 and some fatter knobbies.

i like it well enough, but the black components don't do it for me. i think i'd prefer silver.
