I'll take pics, and soon i'll have stuff on a website.

the crafty wares are going to be kick ass! (and not just mine, hee) i'm sure i'll spend all my measly profits and then some on everybody else's merch. Someone's got the pirate theme working. all i need to say.

Except that my Ma is actually coming to town this weekend...lucky me, looks like no T town for me either. Just waiting to hate all the great stuff everyone is going to come home with.

Meanwhile, I was thinking about Tink needing to build a FG or SS to go to Chicago with. Lucky I had a few spares lying around. So what do you think, is this gheto enought?

THis reaction was expected if not predictable

It is actually a stylized and serrated bash guard for curb hopping

adding a brake will disturb the aesthetic qualities of this convert,

and since the crank and cog is on the left, skipping and skitting will only tighten the cog ... which is actually anti-suicide

which means PEDALING FORWARD, something that you may do from time to time, loosens the cog.

Did y'all seagull riders get this? (it almost reads like engrish. doesn't speak well to the quality of education at salsbury university...)
i forget who's driving. do i need to rent something?
__________________________________________________________

Dear eisenhardt,

The time is almost near. Please be aware that the start time for the
ride is 7am to 9am, and route services will end at 6pm - riders should
be off the roads by sunset.

For those riding the 100-mile route, a small detour has come about due
to road construction. This detour has been marked extensively, and takes
place at the 55-mile marker. Please be advised.

Please use the link below for a map of event parking.

http://www.seagullcentury.org/SeaGullCentParkMAP.pdf

Many thanks and we look forward to another fun ride!

Seagull Century Staff and Volunteers

Whaddya mean not from the board...? (mock hurt being suffered, grievously)

Ok, so I've only posted 20 times in several months.

Heh. It might have been the word, don't recall exactly- on the white of the screen, it definitely looks a rather goofy term...

Hey everyone, new to the group, and pretty much new to this forum. Some friends and I have been doing a ride very similar to yours, every Tuesday since Feb. this year (occaisionally it had to move to Thursday, but we still rode our bikes and got drunk) called TNS - Tuesday Night Swill. Occaisionally we throw down an all day Saturday ride and hit all the good bars in one day...one glorious long day called WUSS.

Anyway, just introducing myself and looking to join up with you all on Tuesday. Probably try and leave Falls Church around 6pm for anyone who is interested in riding in to the meeting spot.

DT

WUSS - also the unfortunate name of Bianchi's 06 SS -- sounds promising. We can compare notes on Tues.
