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?

Today I'm sad I missed that state bike review thread before it got locked. I've been running a successful bike blog for over 2 years, throw events, my girls and I put tons of time into it and the most free **** we've gotten is some embro cream and a messenger bag. Sigh.

edit:
the times i visited them, all of what they had to sell was cleaned and in good shape. completely different than a good will or savers i might add.
been a few years though.
I think we might have went there, I think they changed their name. That's where we found the black 80's couch.

I think we might have found something at Crate & Barrel, gonna go check it out next weekend. I was trying to avoid those types of stores, but it looks decent and is reasonably priced.

Home stuff, ugh.

But would you ride it with under inflated tires and give it the scientific test of "it feels light"?

I definitely wouldn't post a ridiculously huge image-heavy post on BFSSFG; I'd post it on my own damn blog. I guess I'm just used to other parts of the internet where self-promotion and shilling is quickly deleted, with prejudice.

I just let my wife tell me what we're going to buy, really it's the same with everything. She has good taste and I just don't care that much.

Me too. I only fight the battles that matter to me, plus she is admittedly much better at it than me.

After spending a week fiddling with TRP CX8.4s on my CX bike, last night I finally got them dialed in. Finding the right balance of toe-in and rim clearance was a huge PITA.

Tried to ride my bike today after an eleven hour work day but my lights started dying 20 minutes into it so I just cut back and went home and ate ****** egg salad instead.

rode my bike to work today for the first time in a while. temp was in the high teens. i was worried about, well, everything but the ride was totally fine.

somehow a single ten mile bike ride didn't magically erase all the winter laziness + polar vortex + holiday face stuffing weight gain wtf.
