A little indecency in my garage.

Get your mind out of the gutter!

I have a Fixed Gear bicycle sitting in my garage, courtesy of Mr Duane Wright. I have "borrowed" it and am going to try and commute on it tomorrow.. Let us hope that I arrive at work in one piece.

The motivations are many: get stronger (the ever-quotable Kent Petersen would say "Gears make you weak"), experience something new, and get some training miles in while my bike sits at the bike store awaiting a new shifter cable. And no, I am not going to try and ride the 300 on a fixie. I offer no competition to the likes of Mr Brudvik and Mr Petersen (though I may solicit his help in getting my own, out of a beater bike).

Have fun on the 200 folks.
