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)

THE perfect 700c all-around ratio if you ask me. Climb-able, fast on the flats, and I don't rev-out until about 30mph.

Heading up to Seattle today to do the stp, gonna be riding it fixed and do it in two days. I haven't done any real mileage outside of track racing/commuting/alleycats so this might hurt.

If anyone else is riding it, I'll be stopping at Centralia for the beer garden.

Yes I have a Langster Pro and an old Schwinn conversion for commuting, the Kilo TT has been retired plus it was a little too small for me.

44 miles today. My left knee began to really hurt again and I basically limped 15 miles to home. I think my left knee is going to be shot for a while which means I should back out of the 400k

Was up all night preparing to have the two old refrigerators removed for recycling, made $60 and got the used and HUGE 2008 GE installed Now I need a search dog to find my food. Slept. Will return to the Schwinn hasta manana.

A month ago I bought a complete bike for just the frame. After swapping parts I sold the resulting frankenbike on CL today. What a relief!

All finished with the stp now, it's insanely easy. I should of done the one day but had fun getting wasted in Centralia. It wouldn't be that bad if it weren't for the other riders being clueless about pack riding.

You can't delete your bf account. It's like a fb account, even if you die it's still there.
