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)

Yesterday I did this: http://www.strava.com/activities/100414787
Mountain biking, mostly on rocky terrain. Doing that kinda distance on a rigid single speed MTB proved to be more painful then I had ever imagined, my hands are still numb. Time to look for a geared bike with a suspension fork.

You classy.

Portland likes their bikes almost as much as their IPAs.

Today I rode to work even though many streets haven't been plowed/salted. I wiped out just a few blocks from home, busting the container of soup I was intending to eat for lunch. It was in a ziplock bag too, which only sustained a small hole and saved everything in my bag form being covered in homemade rosemary potato leek soup, but there goes my lunch. I also hit the ground hard enough for my brifter to get twisted inwards a bit on the handlebars and I can't seem to force it back straight.

Also my knee hurts.

Falling so early on in my ride had me feeling sketchy and nervous all the way in. Not fun. Ugh.

Best part about Reed has to be the Dr. Demento speeches, though.

+1

All heckling aside, it's a great school, and it means that you're smart and (probably) cool if you got in. Congrats Sherblock.

My younger sister (also best friend) went to school there while I was studying at Humboldt State Univ in norcal. We're only 2yrs apart so we visited each other w friends a few times. Portland is pretty rad.

even though Davis sucks (geographically), you guys have a killer WCCC collegiate cycling team, as you have discovered.

also UCD is a good school too. what u study?
