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)

Like your attitude, though.
Thanks!
I don't see a chance of getting it back. It was my commuting bike used in Gothenburg, Sweden. Not expensive, but all the parts added to it to improve it over the time are the real loss. Now getting similar parts for the new one(s), like fenders, saddle, pedals, sensors, handle bar, etc. It was equipped with the SRAM Automatix which you cannot get anymore.

I am in dialog with my insurance, it should be covered by our household content insurance. The disadvantage is now a bunch of parcels with new parts showing up at home increasing the risk of getting divorced.

nice rando ride @jlafitte! Crazy the types of rides you guys do! I'm good for 6-7 hours (tops) on the bike then I'm just done. Sometimes sooner!

Played around with the fit on my road bike a bit and went for a 20 mile ride. Feels better so far -- I was getting really uncomfortable on my last long ride, and I think it was mostly due to the saddle being pushed too far back.

Today I saw this in my subdivision.

Neighbor bought a new trick bike and the first thing he did was load up the family and go joy riding. Look at them faces...

Today I noticed the insurance did cover for my stolen bike - the whole reinstatement value of the bike and all parts. That is something special with German household content insurance, they don't depreciate or use the present value. Money is already on my account, 2 weeks after the theft and one week after I have sent them all invoices and the police report.

Happy shopping!
