    Much Thanks

    Today was my first ride with a group of geared 29'ers and they actually scoffed at me for riding a 26'er ss. Ya'll tell everyone stick with it suck it up and hulk out up the hills. Thank you all for telling us all how hard it is but that the rewards are worth it. There is nothing like sitting back at the entrance and laughing because you were tailing the lead rider who happens to be a avid XC racer on a $6k custom rig. Guys and girls i can't thank you enough for the help you offer and the words of encouragement you give everyone. One gear, one rider, and one crazy family.

    I love everything about Single Speed, but my #1 thing is passing geared guys in granny gear on a hill.

    Next time don't tail me so closely, I don't want the likes of you scummy SSers so close to my $1,000 rear wheel.



    C'mon lets go for a whirl.
