Saturday I rode from Wilton to Ridgefield on my road bike. 20 mile loop. I stopped by the Ridgfield Cycle Sport Bike shop for a break and a nice conversation with the owners Frank and Draha. I did not know that he is also a frame builder. I would really like to learn more about the process.
I found his website and here are details about his craft.

These gave audiences a tedious sameness from station to station, across the country."
Got up at 5:45 and took about 15 minutes to layer up for a cold ride. Took the Trail Rat light (7 years old now and still works perfect) . Mounted it to the Filmore and jumped out to route 7 . Headed into Wilton Center and grabbed a cup of coffee. Then rode about 10 miles more and looped back and I passed Sean on the bus. With 2 many layers had to stop and take off one sweatshirt.

The Next Page: The Limberness of the Fixed Gear Mind: "Look at all the bicyclists whizzing around town. Notice that some never stop pedaling -- until they stop moving. They're on a 'fixed gear' bike: the ultimate in simplicity in motion (if you know what you're doing)."
