Seagull bags and I are putting it on. You can hit me up at info _at_ columbusbumshuffle.com. We're in the early stages, so it'd be great to have you as a sponsor.

I just received confirmation from Bens Cycle of Milwaukee that they'll be kicking out some rad prizes, the most notable of which is a fully Gold Velocity Fusion wheelset. If you kick ass in this race, you'll be able to receive the derision of others in the "Jackass" thread with your new digs.

hey dude -- it should be a fun race for people who are just riding for the hell of it. i'm going to be doing a ton of promotion for the race around town in the next couple of weeks, but if you know anyone, let them know about it.

hey calculus -- if you're down, i may mail grip of fliers to you to throw around cleveland.

word, i talked to a friend of mine and he said he would ride it with me, should be a lot of fun, hopefully it isn't hella cold!

on another note, i think i talked to you on craigslist about a month ago about the sugino bb that wouldnt fit my bike.

i assumed 'bum shuffle' had something to do with hobos but upon googling it it seems to be when babies crawl around on their butt

Hopefully Louisville and I can make it up for this race, fully planning on it. I know I'll probably end up in dfl, but I'm just coming to ride hard and have fun.

I was thinking about doing this race since Jumpinships was so much fun, but then that car hit me and trashed my bike and my MCL.

This will be my first alleycat, besides an awesome time... what should I expect? Should I be bringing a bag and are under 21'ers allowed?
