Is what i had to remind myself for the first few miles tonight. 59 inches of uninterrupted spin. Changing chainrings made less sense than just pulling the rear brake and flipping the wheel to the fixe cog. Off to Lapham peak i was to try the direct-drive on dirt. Trails were fast and smooth and i learned to ride in pure fluidity (is that a word?) Amazed there was only one decent i had to rely on the front brake for. Faster? No, just a good way to make an old trail new again. The sun gave out before my legs and by time i got home i had in over 2 1/2 hours of coast free riding. It's Thursday, bring on the pizza.
