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)

Apparently they don't even consider houses with brick foundations, but never asked if that's what I had so they took my house off the active market for 2 weeks just before the holiday slowdown season starts... I kind of want to murder kill them.

Later today I will be drinking all of the beers. Everything will be fine, my relationship is amazing, eventually someone will buy the house, bikes are still awesome, etc. Just got my hopes up about a new apartment and better neighborhood and a more sustainable budget and whatnot...
I understand. It's just the game of life.
The house will be sold before you know it and things will fall into place one way or another.

Did you at least get a deposit out of it?

Yesterday, if that's what you're referring to, was pretty warm except for the rain so ya got me. I've been too tired to ride after work lately so the weather is moot anyways

Nope, they pulled out during the attorney review/inspection period so they get their earnest money back.

But feeling better about everything now, I can wait and maybe I'll get a better offer next time.

Second one this year, got a three dollar one back in January. It's a small independent shop and the owner used to be a tech so he understands a paid worker is a productive one.

They must do something in them if the carpets need cleaning.

Today I think I dodged a scam. Looking for a new place to live around here is like walking through a minefield.

Judging by SF Cycling Club's instagram, they seem to be doing pretty damn well. Congrats @Jandro!
