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)

Today I took a spin on the Lakefront Trail and got some good old fashioned Non Drive Side pics.

Today I booted my fancy rear tire after finding some frayed threads in one spot, but determining that the inner layer was still perfectly intact. If it explodes and kills me, it was good knowing all of you.

Sure, everyone can have a tiny piece of it.

Today I went for a nice 7-mile ride after refreshing my fixed-gear. New Rat Trap Pass tires, 44T Vuelta USA chainring, 16T Euro-Asia cog, KMC K1 (they're still "Kool" to me) chain. Finally my whole drivetrain is 1/8". And with true balloon tires, everything feels right on this bike.

Today, I participated in my first running event, all thanks to my friend's encouragement. It turned out to be an incredible experience as it was a fun marathon. To be honest, I used to despise running because, well, I thought I wasn't very good at it.

After the event, I hopped on my fixie and rode around town with my friends. We headed out to grab some delicious noodles and coffee, and later on, we all decided to chill at the fixie shop. Hanging out with my friends there was the perfect way to cap off the day.

Overall, it was a fantastic day filled with running, cycling, good food, and wonderful company. Life just keeps getting better (hopefully)
