 This will be a quick little post just to say...see I am still around. I will load a YouTube video to the end of this post of some riding and a small walk around of the fixed gear.

 I hate to say this, but it has been two weeks since the last ride. Every year I quit riding during daylight hours of our WI rifle Whitetail deer hunting season.  I have in the past rode during the safety of darkness during the season, but this year I did not. AND...that sucks to be off the bike that long. 

The temp was near 30°F today when I left the house, but it was cooling off nice when I returned home. Because of the roads I rode today, I was on the studded up fixie gear. I will say this much, a person could not ask for a better day in December to be riding. EXCELLENT it is!!

I had started the video above to try to shed some light on the fixed gear. I see now I did a poor job at explaining it.  I know some who read this are not aware of these marvelous machines. I put miles on this unit,,,lots of miles.  There was a time was this was my only winter ride.
