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 went on my first ride tonight since knee surgery 10 weeks ago. 10 good night time miles, but that's about all I had in me It's good to get out

2350 ft climbing

7:15 total time
4000+ calories burned
No dog pepper spray deployed

Today I'm going to mountain bike, then I'm going to mountain bike again tomorrow.

I'm at that point of my season where I have little to no interest in riding my road bike . Next week I'll probably ride Fiesta Worlds on the roadie, but otherwise stick to the trail, the Wabi, and Tuesday Night track racing.

I punched a wall today and left a small dent. I am sick and tired of lazy wrenches who don't do their jobs properly when safety is concerned. Make sure before a bike leaves the shop the pedals are tight ALWAYS!

However good news is I am going with three close friends for a Spa weekend (during the week) at some springs and hoo-boy am I excited. Two days of rest and relaxation in springs and massages and countryside. Can't wait, I need it bad.

Today I swapped saddles between my road bike and fixed gear as I was having numbness issues and couldn't level the saddle on the fixed gear. Oddly enough, after swapping the saddles, I was able to level both of them. Now I just need some miles on the bike to test it. Feels good to get a problem sorted out!
