    I would really like to run in this but I don't know about the no brakes rule. Is the area pretty hilly?

    Isn't macon pretty hilly? I don't think it's any worse.

    I wouldn't reccomend taking your brake off just to race.

    Yeah, Macon has some decent hills, but I don't ride brake less in Macon. So I really don't want to ride brake less somewhere I haven't rode much. I just like having it for those emergency needs. I was just wondering if those rules were literal. Oh well, I am heading up to ATL tomorrow and I will stop in at No Brakes to check out what the route and rules are.

    knowing them, the rules are real. They've been talking about a no brakes race for a while.

    When ever I went up to Atlanta last weekend, I stopped in at "No Brakes" and they did clarify that the race is fixed only and no brakes allowed. It seems like it will be pretty cool, but I don't know if I will be available now to ride in it. We'll see

    Doing a "no brakes" race does weed out a lot of people who would want to ride, but it'll be the first one like that in atlanta.

    Stay tuned for Broken Hearts IV in Feb. A benefit for the Sopo Bike Coop. It is always a good race. I usually plan the route but I'm out of the country so my good friend is planning it. She'll make it cool.

    Man, I just got back from ATL doing the "Major Taylor" event. The bike shop "No Brakes" held a surprise b-day bash for this kid who rides in ATL and it was pretty good event. We had a pretty good turn out and it appears there will be a real good turnout for the Mash ride. Also, word is that there will be a Mash rider at the ATL Mash Show. So if anyone is close enough to ATL, come on out.

    I will be there and two others from Macon. All the guys from "No Brakes" and I would say at least 20-30 other riders. One of the Mash SF riders will be there as well(hopefully). The race is going to be intense. I don't think I am riding in the race, but I will be riding leisurely and at a fun pace from the "No Brakes" shop to the bar where the premiere is being held. Its going to be a good time no doubt. Seriously cOurt, you should come out.
