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)

Little bit of column A, little bit of column B.

I'll be camping along this trail all summer. Tomorrow I am going to ride another, more challenging trail nearby. It's absolutely gorgeous out here!

Picked up a set of brand new Ultegra carbon pedals for less than the price of 105. Now deciding if I want to use these, or sell them...

Today(yesterday) I rode my first century to the Shiner Brewery. 48x16. All in all it was fairly easy until the last 20 miles. Only noticed one other rider on SS/FG. Fuji proved to be very comfortable throughout the whole ride. Post ride pic!

Absolutely gorgeous is an understatement. Looks so fun! Bike camping?

Volunteered as a course marshal at the Red Hook Crit last night, good time. Also went to the Brooklyn Hot Sauce EXPO yesterday.

Today I had a low speed crash because I was being inattentive. I always ride with gloves, forgot them this time, and of course skinned my hand pretty good. Not my best day.

Rode a tough trail today with a good amount of hike-a-bike sections. Made for some sweet descending though.

Sweet Gum seed pods. You can chew on the sap from the trunk as a natural gum. I keep meaning to try that and forgetting.

@franswa: I'm working in town but will be living in the woods nearby.

Today I busted my knuckles twice helping my friend on his chevelle. It's cars like this that you just want to fill a pool with penetrating fluid and push it right in.

Got a 96 tracker I'm picking up Wednesday.

Now I'm looking for a 2.0L gti engine to put in it.

Recovering from a century ride in Chico yesterday -- Drinking that water! Had my best time today date, just under 6 hours which I'm happy with -- Lots of room for improvement
