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

No Simmons, you won't have to wait until Thanksgiving for an update...haha....with so much time on my hands (the girlfriend is on a 'girls week long cruise' in the bahamas) I thought I'd try out the new 6.3MP digital camera I purchased the other day.....I won enough playing poker the othernight and I've wanted one for awhile now so I put 2 and 2 together and now I'll be able to share some pics of the Kool-stop Wilderbeast trailer budget biker sent my way. I called Koolstop up and asked about getting an extension for a 29" wheeled bike and they sent them my way...FREE...gotta love put everything on and went for a little ride around the block......maybe next time the guys go for a 100 mile ride I'll have enough nerve to attempt to ride along and then the boys can load up all their gear in the trailer, no more backpacks!!

PS - Hey Simmons, sad to say I will not be in the area during your wedding (I'll be in NY Dec. 22nd-Jan.2) so I won't be able to attend...I didn't want to tell you this way, trust me I didn't, but I don't think I'd be able to tell you in person......I really wanted to tell you in person because only a person of no character would say something this important by any other means, ie. cell phone, email,, I guess, in essence I am saying I have no character? I should really think these things through before I say such stuff....haha

I wasn't even going to check your blog until T-day. I'm glad I did.

That is a sweet trailer. Now there is no excuse to not go along on a long ride :) But I just got a new backpack that I can't wait to try. You can't take that away from me :)

Your chain is looking a little rusty. That could be a problem. I'm disappointed Sears. I thought you were better than that :)

With a new camera comes more frequent posting :)

I totally understand about you not being able to make it. coughwhoopedcough :) Just kidding Sears. I'm happy for you, and wish you years and years of trips to NY. Then when it's your turn to get married I can mysteriously take a trip to somewhere :)

Have a great Thanksgiving man!

The rust comment embarassed Sears, so now he doesn't want to come out and blog anymore.
