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?

Had a weekend of excellent thrifting. $10 got me the original Wind Waker, and some albums I was looking for (beastie boys, yo la tengo, and nas).

Also got a wool dressing gown (robe) that retails for ~$500 at the awesome price of $16. It's comfy.

Today I got dragged by the sqrl into taking my neighbor's children to Disney on ice.
Thankfully I was the odd man out without a ticket and I ended up recouping my losses at the swap meet next door where I found these:


This is about half of what that was there.
Some with the clipless cutout and some without.

Of course we bought each multiple pairs.

Move to the upper midwest or North East during winter, plenty of cool* to go around.

*Cool as in freezing your your plums off cold.

Toppled over while stopping at a red light. You never win, you just do a little better each time.

Luckily it was around 2:30am so only the owls saw. And no, I wasn't drunk unfortunately.

Took the son out for a ride and used my new to me SS CX bike

A blast, and as added bliss, 60 degree temps before the next arctic blast.

I'm getting real tired of how busy work is, ten to eleven hour days and we still can barely keep up.

Met a pretty down lady at the bar. Gave her my number, got a kiss on the cheek when she left. It's amazing, the power of healthy eating and a positive disposition on a man's luck.
