Pedalpalooza Five

Monday.
Flipped over my flip-flop hub and spun on an 18-tooth cog and a lockring.
Background music, to the tune of the Smiths' Girlfriend In A Coma:
Fixed cog and a lockring, I know.  I know!  It's really serious.
Did the deed at the Bike Farm and took it out for a ride.
I had forgotten the fun feel of fixed gears.  I've missed it!
Standing up as you come to stop signs and stop lights was strange too.
Starting up at a light, the chain slipped.

Met up with my new team as they celebrated their short track race.
We rode over to Ryan's for hanging out and I skidded to a stop.
The chain slipped again.
I flipped the wheel back to free in his living room.
Fixed is fun but not for all the time and I will not be racing it.  Yet.
