Pain? What pain? Gears? Hugh? Brakes, what for? Crank up the hills until to you fall off hallucinating about clowns. Attack the down hills, intersection and anything bloody thing in your way... momentum is the key as to lose it is to lose everything.
Once you have felt, and enjoyed the pain, then my friend grab a couple brews with some friends and relax. You have now discovered the essence one gear living. It is what riding a bike is meant to be... FUN.
FG strives to show becoming fit and fast doesn't mean you have to become boring.
Getting Your Fun On
FG has swung over the years between being Wease's blog and being a community driven site. While this is once again (and probably to stay) Wease's site, it still has a node to community.
There is a lot of stuff to help you get involved with the Vancouver Fixed gear scene.
Check out some of the following:
- Blogs - members getting their word on
- Events - get the lowdown
- Forums - Got something to say?
- Groups - Sub culture groups
