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)

No, I missed it... I was recovering from a run in with an xacto knife- it won. It wasn't pretty, but it's healing nicely.

No worries- you don't need to apologize for your opinion. I haven't had a chance to make it down to IU yet...

Yo, I'm at Windsor now, and this town is friggin wierd. My bike got jacked (I'm bikeless for a few more months) and some carney just kicked in the passenger side headlight on my car (my car before that got stolen here too - right out of the driveway) Also, I haven't seen one other person on fixed here, and I've only had 2 good instructors so far. But if you move down here we can be a gang of two!

I will be finishing my senior year this fall at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia. I'm taking a semester off in order to get my ducks in a row and because the classes I need to graduate weren't offered this spring.

I graduated from the School Of Hard Knocks!

Actually went to several schools and graduated with MS from BYU in '68.
Worked on PhD at USC, but being a parent was more important at the time.
Spent 32 years teaching public school in Las Vegas.

Went to University of Oregon, graduated University of Colorado in philosophy. Went back to Northern Michigan University and graduated with math. Was going to be their first mathematics graduate student, took one semester and had a kid and moved where there was money.

Three schools in 7 years! Not too shabby.

Williams College 06, Robert Wood Johnson Medical school (i.e. Rutgers Med) '10. I've seen one singlespeed on the rutgers campus, parked outside of the werblin fitness center. I ride everyday and get nothing but dirty looks...

I went to Geneva while still in high school. Had a great time, but it sure is tiny.

I once walked from Ambridge.

the school of hard knocks.

I am in the process of applying. Looking at a lot of the UCs

EDIT: read eyeleica's post, I now feel unoriginal and useless. I will no longer be applying to college
