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 found out that I will most likely be authoring a state legislative bill for bike advocacy. This is both profoundly exciting and terrifying at the same time.

Today on my commute home I got my first puncture since going tubeless.

I had to pull over to re-air. It was the worst.

That is why you always carry a spare tube, even when you run tubeless.

Today I put in 66 miles, in which I dodged a right hook and avoided getting hit by a driver turning left. Happened in the same intersection I got hit in back in August.

Today I realized how long its been since I last logged into the forums. Holy ****. School and work really ruin the life of riding bikes and then sitting on the internet talking about bikes.

It pays to ride your bike

So today I was riding my bike in my hood when a truck pulls out in front of me and turns right burning rubber and giving the finger as he sped off down the road. As he did so I heard a clank on the road and saw a very nice Made in Usa Craftsman 3/4" combination wrench. It's much nicer than my cheap Indian wrench for sure, and proof positive that there is a God.
