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)

What bartape is that?

I've been considering this stuff once spring hits...blue and green on a blue and white cannondale...maybe get some green chainring bolts to bring it all together.

Today I got to put my new Brooks Swift on the Mr Pink, and can tell this one will be quite harder to break in than the B-17.

Feels good though. About to order my Zeitgeist from Swift Industries sometime this month.

Also, filed taxes.

Today I'm one week on a healthier vegetarian diet and feeling much better about pretty much everything. Cheeseburgers, burritos and microwave meals is just not a sustainable plan.

Veggie burritos and cheese pizza are the staples of my vegetarian diet.

Filed my taxes today and I'm gonna be rich soon, so many bike parts on the horizon.

Nice, I didn't even know they did had colored tape. I googled...they have gun print tape!!! I don't even own a gun, but I'd still wrap my bars with it so everyone will know I'm a badass not to be messed with. lol.

If it wasn't 40 ****ing dollars, wasn't white, didn't say "Republic of Texas", wasn't made my Specialized, and didn't have half a revolver on it I'd get it too.
