OK, time out...
1. I'd rather have a beer with a cyclist than anyone else.
2. it's Monday, I hate mondays, dom needs to block my IP on mondays.
3. there's a big hipster culture culture in my town that go on and on about their fixies. I took their bullshit and projected it onto you. that 'performance' video shows this culture clash pretty very well.
no, not bullshit that you couldn't do 30 miles a day. I would never say that to someone I would only hope to encourage them to go for it. it was the whole 'extra stamina' thing. there's nothing about a fixie that's good for a long ride. sorry, that's the kinds of things I hear from hipsters, this Zen state of riding a fixie.
"I firmly believe what ever gets a person on a bike is great."
I couldn't agree more. I like your attitude.
hey, is it true that Italians are born with clipless feet?
@$#%$ I broke my chain riding tonight. sucks to walk in SPDs trying to find a cab in the outskirts of town. gonna try a Connex chain, anyone have experience with one?

It's where the river splits up into lots of little deltas and they've built houses on the little islands. Apparently it's where some of DDR officials used to have their weekend Datscha, back in the day...
It was all very surreal...
I found a similar spot in SF, on Mission Creek, just upstream from the baseball stadium. not nearly as scenic but a random find. soon they'll be surrounded by multi-story condos.

that's a great way to go. I did that and now I'm doing something I never thought I'd do, buy a road bike. then I'll want to up the components on my commuter to be a better mountain bike. ultimately it leads to a whole quiver of bikes for every occasion. and we thought Live updates were expensive.
