John W. replied to Skip Montanaro 12mi's discussion Fixie Riders - what gear are you running?
"If that crank is what you're running now, disregard this but if you're running a 130bcd crank and want a 46t 3/32 chainring, just come to Ravenswood and pick it up. Then walk/ride up the block and say hi to Julie."

Awesome are you going to the NorthSide Critical Mass this Friday?

It's like I'm psychic or something. The letters are starting to come fast and furiously, with big chunks of letters being added in one fell swoop! "Woodpecker." [snicker]

Are you going to keep on adding letters to your last name?

Hope you didn't stay out on the sidewalk at the bar all night!  I ended up riding the entire way back to Evanston--made it in about a half hour or so.  See you on another ride!
