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)

Today I climbed this, it's a 1/4 mile from the house so pedaled back to it after my ride. After the right hand turn it gets steep.

I know a lot of folks don't follow instructions and don't realize that is a necessary task. I am amazed at the number of components that I find have became loose while my bike is on the stand.

I thought oven cleaner was for stripping anodizing, maybe does paint too, though, never tried it.

Well my supervisor wanted me to perform a task today that takes 8-10hrs with minimal notice, like he mentioned it during a brief conversation about the delivery schedule for a big order.

Because I was "under-informed" (imo) and unprepared to start it immediately, I showed up at 9:45am after my 4-day weekend (jury duty and PTO) like um... god damnit

I finally got it started at 11:15AM or so. It's gonna be a long one over here...

That was probably mine. I can never get them to come back, they always just fly into the distance. Cuz I throw with my left hand or something.
