The SS Crosser. Simple, yet elegant. It's the little black dress of bicycles.
Just a reminder that tonight is Single Speed Tuesday. While we've called it SS Tuesday, you don't necessarily need to have a Single Speed to ride tonight, so bring whatever, mountain bikes, cross bikes, unicycles, tandems. Anyway we'll roll at 6 - though we may have to wait for Craig - wait he said he can't bring any beer tonight - so we'll be rolling promptly at 6.
Flying Bats in happier times before he knew he might be late tonight. Should we wait? He's rocking a 43 x 16 which means he will be faster than us. Plus he won't have time to bring beer. What do you think?
So choose your weapon for tonight. Ed Crickle says he's brining this thing (below). That Crickle is such a hoot, he really is.
Another choice whip in SS technology, or non-technology: The SS Mountain Bike. I don't know but the 32 x 20 might be a tad slow. But it looks good all covered in dirt, no?
Experimental single speeds are also cool. More to talk about in the parking lot.
The sand is beaten down, so I think you can leave this one home.
The Sperm Bike it always a good bet. This is what I've be racing at the Wednesday Night Practice races if I should go.
Maybe something that has way more wheels and seats than it does gears. Russ could pulls us. Yeah, he's a tough guy.
A tandem would be nice. Just heard via something called Facebot or something that we are going to have a tandem. Hadn't figured on that in the course plotting. Uh-oh.
A two piece suit with a single speed is always nice.
Or really get minimalist with no gears at all. This happens to be Mr. Kim Lee practicing for tonight's ride. This is how he rocked the TT last night.
Here' a true single speed. Not even a chain. Don't laugh a guy raced one of these again a NYC bus and won!
With the right tire choice even the standard hipster fixie would work.
Of course too much single speeding and fixie hipsterism and this is what happens. So we're only doing this on Tuesday.
