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)

Another 12 metric century challenge?

Started the last one late and lost interest/forgot about it after the thread was unstickied, maybe, just perhaps, we could do a new one starting Jan. 1?

Propose that rules are: Do 12 metric centuries over the year, starting Jan. 1. Update after each one (pictures encouraged). No prizes other than a virtual pat on the back from fellow members.

Thoughts? Make it a yearly thing?

In point of fact, I intendedfto make it an annual event, with an even dozen winners each year, as well, starting on January. I was going to announce on New Years Day, but I might as well let the cat out of the bag now. Yes, we're going to do it annually.

Refresh my memory, could this be done with just a cyclocompter and a timestamped photo? Or do I need a GPS?

He did a nice write up too. Try searching for it. Look for the last metric thread, find him and look at his started threads.
