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)

Time to stock up on thin mints.

OT : Today I went on a ride with Jaytron. About 50 miles total. We met up and rode along his commute for 30 miles. The unique purpose of this ride is to stay in zone 1 - about 60% of your max heart rate.

Low-stress training days are fun when you have a riding partner.

Today I shall be purchasing my first car, ever, at the ripe age of 23.

'94 EG Hatch.

It's weird not living in a city where I can bike everywhere, and the commute to work is balls.

I like the colors of the godzilla better but if I chose a BK color it would've been scrods (so damn you). I can't wait to see it with those wheels built up

I'm glad I didn't get one. Had two friends with them and I was bored after 3 sessions. After that I'm like, "I'll just watch and drink, thanks."

Today I read the BMX Plus article on their badass carbon ride. 15 lbs and $3300.

Seems heavy for a bike that only comes up to your knees

I think they used this frame, looks the same to me anyways. Most if not all other parts different from pic.

I was 23 when I bought my first car. 1970 VW Type 3. Paid $200 for it, sold it four years later for $100.

I always thought carbon and Ti parts on a BMX bike was a bad idea. The first real popular Ti frame I remember was only like 2 lbs, and they even came with a warning about street/park/trails use, and how it could break like a piece of paper. And the frame alone was $2000.

Just wrapped up for the day... spring cleaning in my shop and uncovering stuff I forgot I had and have to ask just how many sets of tubular wheels does one man need ?

Figure I will be salvaging some of those hubs for other wheel builds and will keep a few sets on hand for the road bikes.

Can barely turn around for bikes, frames, and parts everywhere... guess I should get to building some of those up.
