I think this city is rubbing off on me. New tattoos & I just bought a matte black single speed.

It has some very understated decoration on the frame. The chain guard (I think) was installed by the LBS. Toeclip pedals removed (because fuck them, I want to live.) It has one relatively easy gear (on the flat) that gets more interesting as you approach a steep rise….

The LBS owner says - that’s a training bike, you need flat roads for that, you won’t be going up Kimball (local steep hill) on it!

Orly? Thinks I. Out the shop (work clothes and backpack included) along the street & straight up to said hill into a headwind.

Yes, it’s hard work. Yes, my lungs almost heaved themselves out of my chest and landed on the pavement, but you know, that’s kinda the point.

A training bike it is, and NO I’m not riding it fixed or without brakes, that’s insane in traffic!

Hill repeats on the way to work? What other choice is there… at least until the new wheels are built for the Miyata & I have gears again.

"Here, then, I’ve highlighted all the places where white people make up less than 10% of the population"

" This University of Michigan analysis of 2010 Census data, for example, suggests that New York is the second-most-segregated metropolitan area in the U.S., exceeded only by Milwaukee, and that about 78% of white and black people would have to move in order to achieve perfect integration."

Walked past this place this morning. The pics on the web don’t do it justice, it’s an immense building. This 4 train stop is elevated, so the platform is at the level of the 2nd floor & still it towers over you on the platform.

Do you know a cure for me?”
Why yes,” he said, “I know a cure for everything. Salt water.”
Salt water?” I asked him.
“Yes,” he said, “in one way or the other. Sweat, or tears, or the salt sea.
