Some bike stuff

If you're a nerd like me and you spend time thinking about how your bicycle shifts gears, you might enjoy this blog item about the Virtues of Friction Shifting. I say amen to that. Nice and simple is the way to go.

If you're feeling a little chubby and need inspiration. check out the Large Fella on a Bike blog. The guy weighed over 500 pounds in November 2005. Now he's just under 220 pounds and still losing weight!

My Rivendell has Shimano bar end shifters, with give me both shifting options: friction and indexed. The friction option is a life saver at times, especially when the shifting gets weird far from home.
