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)

Nice save. Those are the worst because you get no time to react before you're down.

Today I sold that bike of my ex's! Yay. Also sold one window A/C unit, a nice folding/extension ladder, and a shop vac. Oh and earlier this week sold my old hybrid. Just need to sell a lawnmower and a couple more window A/C units tomorrow (new place has central air).

Tonight I checked my bank account online and discovered a bunch of fraudulent charges to my checkcard. This is the third time this has happened in the last 5 years. Had to cancel checkcard, file claim, and go to bank tomorrow to get temporary card until permanent new card arrives in mail. Then I have to update all accounts that auto charge that card and probably transfer more funds into the account to cover auto payments until my SS check gets deposited. Ain't the electronic banking age wonderful !

So, have you been mugged ? Never happend to me, but did to a good friend who was pretty traumatized by it.

Anyway, I think it's inevitable that sooner or later your card number gets stolen, no matter how careful you are. My card is never out of my possession, and I rarely use it for online purchases, which are normally by PayPal. So either it got stolen when I swiped it somewhere or some processing center got hacked.

Money that you carry in cash or money in your bank account ? I rarely have over $100 cash in my wallet.

Midnight century was good but we had to cut out 20 miles to get home because my neck was killing me. I need a bigger bike.

Yeah, I'm weird like that too. I'm also over 2/3rds a century old, or in the metric system 0.678 century-years.

Is it a possibility for you to save up for a custom frame? Seems like that would be a good way to go for you, right?
