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 learned a buddy of mine works for a startup developing a better bike computer. Here is the kickstarter, it seems to be quite a bit more accurate: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...mart-sensor-ri

Today, I'm tired.

Yesterday, on my 9 hour flight from munich to newark, our pilot had to turn around because they found parts of our landing gear on the runway. 7 hour delay, then we got in at 2am. That was fun.

Today I decided to nickname my new bike out of sheer boredom. I've decided to call it the Rotary for right now, just because the chain is somewhat loud when i start from a stop, but as i go faster it moves easier and get to this nice buzzing sound just like a rotary engine. Although, I'm sure that noise from the chain could be an issue, but I can't seem to figure it out, I've lubed it with the teflon chain lube and it still makes noise.

Perfectly fine, actually. I was hoping we would be lopsided or something but you couldnt even tell there was an issue. I assume it wasn't anything important that fell off, but that it meant something else might be loose.

boeing 747

Today I filed a police report for my wife's bike (stolen from our detached garage). Total waste of time but I need it for insurance. The scary part about the whole thing is that they saw my bike in the house, lifted the screen, and found out the windows were locked. We were in the house, sleeping, and our 4 week old twin boys were two rooms away. Not cool. And they skipped over all of the power tools and stole a 2006 Trek hybrid worth maybe $150.

Yikes - though, glad they were kind of stupid and took the relatively worthless bike. I experienced a break in while I was home sleeping (never woke up - discovered the missing items and open window the next morning) and it threw me for a loop for a while.

Does your insurance have a low enough deductible to even cover that? Or do you have a rider for the bike(s)? My homeowners insurance won't give me a rider or personal property policy for my bikes which I find to be really stupid. They'll do it for jewelry but not bikes? Annoying.

My insurance replaced my buddy's Trek 1500 with the cash equivalent for a new 1.5. He was ecstatic.

you should retake undergrad level physics in your first year of college anyways (imo)

it's kind of important for the rest of your education if you're doing engineering

I have a friend who had a bike stolen out of his garage and the insurance company gave him fair market value for the bike. He wound up with a much better bike.

Probably a better spend then the iphone app. I like how it unsubscribes me from threads after I post with it. Kind of defeats the whole purpose.

Today, I cut back my time on the stationary bike from 1hr to 45 mins. One hour was getting boring.
