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)

I just calculated the differences in drop from putting a 10 deg stem with a 15mm cone spacer underneath vs. a 5 deg stem slammed on the bearing itself.

Only about 1mm difference with a 120mm stem.

Spring break

Edit: Forgot to count the actual bearing and the compression ring as those extend beyond the head tube. It should be identical, or very close to identical.

If you have one of their pay to use cards there's a good chance you can convince them to comp you one.

Today I bought some tools and a saddle, then worked from 4 pm to midnight.

Debuted a new spring cocktail menu at the bar I work at today. Pretty much ensured that we were killed from the time I got there until close, but well worth it I like making drinks

Not sure if it's just because I'm next to a distribution center or what, but I tend to get the free 1 day and same day shipping option on a lot of things. Amazon Prime is the shiz!

Yeah it is. I really wish Amazon would stop using DHL, though.. What a piece of **** delivery service they are.

Both places I've lived the past few years haven't used DSL, they've used UPS for 2 and 1 day shipping. Cypress, TX and Tempe, AZ.

I just bum off my mom's account. I originally just got the trial and she likes it so much she keeps renewing it. Hell yeah.

I usually get USPS or ontrac. Fedex or UPS for bulkier items.

I remember the good ol' days of amazon prime where everything ordered with prime was only shipped by UPS or fedex 2-day air; even a 60 pound box of laundry detergent powder.

I think this also differs based on location, everything I receive is usually sent UPS or Fedex, however, I have gotten USPS stuff on Sunday (which is pretty ****ing awesome in its own right).

Slowly making my way up to Alaska. Currently in Austin, TX. Rad town, but I think I'm the poorest/dirtiest person here. When I mentioned I was passing through, a cashier at Whole Foods gave me a huge discount on my groceries as "hospitality" but I think it was more like pity. Hopefully passing through Mexico soon so I can drive up Baja into California. I'll have to drop by and say hello to @Scrodzilla if I pass through SD. Who is down to hang in southern California?
