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)

Tour de Farms

I rode in the bike MS Tour de Farms this weekend. People treated me like I was a rock star for riding a fixed gear. I was the only one.

Lot's of flat roads past struggling corn fields.


Having a good time

One team was sponsored by a furniture store and set up a great lounge in the livestock barn.

Here's mine. A 2017 Bombtrack Arise 2. Kind of modified a bit. Actually only things stock are the bars and crank. This is my favorite of all my bikes. Nice to get on and just pedal, being able to go anywhere, gravel, road, etc, is a bonus too.

It is! Right at the end in Barre. Great ride after work to unwind. I usually start it at Glenwood street in Rutland, go to Barre, and back. Round trip is about 17 miles

I spent last week in Cork, Ireland for work. I didn't have much time for sightseeing, but did manage to squeeze in a couple of short morning rides around town using their bikeshare bikes.

The socks were $3 for two pair at Marshalls and the shoes were $70 shipped on eBay. I think I made out pretty well.
