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)

A while ago I busted my phone in a car accident so I bought a $20 prepaid phone and put my sim card in it. Haven't gotten around to upgrading yet.

We've had a bit of a drought this year. I rode out here again today and there was a trickle of water that had finally reached the marina. Going to still be some time before it's afloat again.

nice conversion. did you buy the frame off the forum? i think khatfull used a similar seatpost, saddle, and bars on his tiara



edit:

i was wrong, the seat post is completely different and the saddle and bars are only close. the paint job differs as well. my memory of it had eroded over the last year.
