Get on your fixed gear bicycle and ride!

I still feel that varable 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, L'Équipe article of 1902

Tucson Az Jan. '06??


I've decided that I really need to go Tucson in Jan. to the Aqua Caliente(see link) race/ride being put on by a guy I know named Dejay Birtch....actually, really want to go to the "Edward 40 Hands" contest....now thats a CONTEST, duct tape 40oz bottles of beer in each hand and drink.....the race will just be something to do.........throw in a day on the slopes with the snowboard and it will be a stellar kamikaze style rowadtrip....time to get off my fat ass and start riding the trainer, as well as commuting.......picked up a trek 800 and a specialeyesd crossroads hybrid at the local thrift store this evening for $5 apiece.....the xroads will be my winter singlespeed commuter....pics to follow.....the ice is gettin good and thick on the lakes, will be out icefishing in a couple of weeeeeks!...some crazies r out now on 2-4 inches of ice...to thin for me; literally and figuratively...haha.....gonna go kill me some pheasants on Dec. 17th as a pre-birthday(on 18th) celebration, shotguns, beers, & birds....feel free to join the fun!....been trying to call the gf but not getting through....shes probably in bed, suffering from a bad cold I gave when I was sick earlier this week.....in case you haven't noticed I took after simmons and have my 'random blog' mode on this evening....might try and go kill me some birds Sunday morning before work, see how I'm feeling...."good night Johnboy".

Trek is making the track frames right now. I just passed by an entire rack of unpainted ones...

Save up your pennies, they should be available soon!
