    My MTB book will be published

    I just signed a contract with Velo Press for a book on my bicycle activities between 1970 and 1990. Working title is "Fat Tire Flyer." My agent got me an awesome deal, and the publisher says they want to make it totally comprehensive, i.e. lots of text and lots of illustrations.

    Out in the fall, buy it so I can get rich.

    That sounds like a blast. The book would interest me. I was riding my Paperboy Special around the desert in AZ in the early 70's. Now South Mountain Park has a dozen trails. Keep us posted!

    Is that Billy, Billy Jack I see above me?
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    A history of ONE post and you made it for me? I'm flattered.

    I dunno, but maybe a book shop might carry it. Amazon? If it turns out to be a problem, I'm sure I'll hear about it.
