A little single speed love



It's been just over three weeks since my knee surgeries and I am finally able to ride a stationary bike! It'll be months before I'm able to ride freely and that's been bumming me out a lot cause I've been spending most of my time watching bike movies or looking through bike pictures - probably a bad idea! This is an older shot, and a self portrait too!


My single speed is my fave bike; you're either pedalling or not. There's no gears to rely on or blame, just my legs. It's taught me to use less brakes and move my body more; it turns everything into a power move. It climbs like a dream and the lockout is right on the bars.


It's looking like I won't be able to ride again before we move and I haven't yet been able to find any good info on the mountain biking in Tashkent (if there is any) so it could be an awfully long time before I get to seriously ride again!
