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 got the flu. Pretty sure it's from riding in 10-20 degree weather for the past few days.

Good job. I'm not quite there yet and it's definitely been over a month. Progressing nicely on the sled though.

Keep it up.

my hands are cracking because of the cold/wind in Portland. I have no idea what's wrong with me because it isn't actually very cold.

I really dislike the feeling of lotion which just makes the situation x10000 worse.

I had days off piled up that I had to use before the end of the year. Just saw your post riding rollers on FB though so I might have to go out and get cold.

Also Wrapped the bars today. Riding the rollers is a damn workout on the wrists and hands.

Today I rode in 32 degree weather with a 10mph wind. It's the coldest temp I've ever ridden in but I was surprisingly comfortable. Definitely better than the trainer.
