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)

Front Reception at the Welfare Office for the Downtown District in Toronto. Hand out cheques, crisis intervention, get yelled at by people with mental health/substance abuse issues, it truly is an awesome job (no sarcasm, I love this job)
