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)

im running a 36 ring with an 11-34 cassette and it's perfect for my riding. I will be going to the sunrace 11-40 or 11-42 cassette soon- just to give me the lower end I might need for bike packing. the cazaderos are ok...but I miss my nanos. I'm waiting on a pair to arrive. I won't be keeping these. they're too squirmy on the road.

i have the sunrace 11-40 on the fatbike, the jumps are nice and even. my only issue is my chainring is too low for most of what ive been doing but for legit singletrack its great

ive never had a bike with gears that low before, a week ago i did the hardest climb in the area and i think i still had 3 or 4 more cogs i didnt need

Rode to Marietta Square. Marietta was one of the towns burned by Sherman in 1864. The flames at the end of Gone with the Wind were supposed to be Marietta burning. Too cold to stop for lots of pictures.

Too cold for me to do a road ride,
Weird crystals on the edges of the puddles, the strands are about 3 inches long and have a little bit of dirt on the end that I presume was pushed up as the crystal grew.

Not thick enough to ride on, just barely enough to hold up the bike.

I got that one, or a similar one from kustomcaps.com.
Being a Nikon shooter myself, this was perfect for me.

Top cap was a gift but I think I might've seen it on kustom caps long time ago. The photo related one mash sells is the front of a Zeiss lens. Also dope.

Poached a little trail behind the Point Bonita Lighthouse ranger station that I've always wondered about. Found some cool old rusty **** to play on.

That's cool.

I could be wrong but I think those are harbor defenses - artillery and anti-aircraft bunkers built around San Francisco during World War II. You can see a big one in the background on the right sticking out of the hillside which would have been used for a 16" gun. The smaller one under your bike was probably anti-aircraft.



Definite fear of Japanese invasion back then.

That's a super cool pic. Don't get yourself in trouble!
