    Another fixie thread...

    the wife is in final preparation for Shiggy's pain-fest known as the Cascade Cream Puff. She's been commuting to work lately....about 28 miles there...and the long way home at about 50. She thought she'd try it today on her fixie...it took longer getting there by 15 minutes...but she had fun..except for the saddle. Apparently fixie riders are practically glued to their saddle on the downhills....all told, she did about 80 fixed miles today...not bad for her 2nd time on such a bike.

    A bike by any other name is still a bike.

    By the way Jeff, thanks for the heads up.
    Through a search on the RBR commuting forum, I discovered that a messenger bag is not the call for a loooong commute. She tried a big back pack but that was horrible.
    As per your reccomendation, she used my big camelpack and was quite comfy for the 4-5 hours she was on the bike.....

    That looks damn good Padre. Nice call on the pink bar tape. A good accent. I also dig on the two brakes. Makes it look like a bike for the long haul, not just for blasting around town.

    What kind of frame is it?
    When the going gets weird its bedtime.

    Weims are hilarious

    They look so dignified and yet most of them are such goofballs.
    She's a pretty girl.

    Is your wife racing her SS at CCCP?

    the new couse looks to be epic...can't wait.

    Good luck to her...are you racing...or doing support?

    If you ain't racing at least make sure you do plenty of riding yourself. Oakridge area is absolutely beautiful for riding.

    I'm not racing or supporting...I'm working. She's bringing her mom with her.
    She will be riding her SS.

    Bummer...

    you sure you don't feel a cold coming on? Not sure if you have been up there, but make a trip if you ever get the chance, beautiful place.

    Good luck to your wife, I'm sure her and my paths will cross at some point up there.
