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)

You should ask the Mods to move this to the regional forum.

Or just ride around campus and downtown, something will turn up.

1. The 18th is probably going to coincide with the University winter break, so most students who ride might be out of town.
2. Columbia isn't that big. You'd have better luck in STL. Sorry.

I've never been there, I'm an STL man myself. There's always the option of just cruising around on your own. Exploring can be fun, just mind the ghetto if there is any.
