    The mustachioed Zabriskie has a pretty decent Kevin Costner/American Flyers look going.

    BTW, nice pics, thanks for posting.

    Thanks for the comments all.

    garysol1 - way to go on the effort! It is a helluva climb...we walked it.

    roq - I was thinking the same thing when taking the shots...As for camera - it's a Canon rebel xt w/ 70-200L glass.

    You get back on your bike.

    Mostly climbers. That way you stay aero when you unzip the jersey on mountain days.

    I'm hoping he shows to the Mt. Washington hillclimb. Preferably on a singlespeed 52X14. I'd like to beat an Olympic gold medalist.

    Team High Road uses SRMs, if you look closely it is right in front of his stem.

    That pic of creed is hilarious. I'll think of that next time he rips my legs off.

    I've done Brasstown Bald Buster Century twice. Finished 10th and 14th. Walked the wall both times.

    The only times I've ridden up weren't after 100 miles.
