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)

had some fun in the snow tonight on my way home from work... the snow in NYC is super slippery tonight. I managed to make it up the williamsburg bridge and then had a blast skidding for hundreds of feet at a time down it... and falling on my ass at the bottom...

lol. we have really slippery grounds when it gets wet at UW. Anybody who's been there knows of Red Square, extremely slippery.
I had fun sliding around until i went over too far to one side and went down.
ah well, fun while it lasted.
