Paging cavernmech! Mr. cavernmech, please pick up the white courtesy phone, or the blue one by the water fountain.

Racing or not this may be of some interest, we chipped in to get it started but there will be more than just our stuff up for grabs soon;

http://www.messmedia.org/globalgutz/

I figure more prizes = more winners, so there are more sponsors coming soon...although I'm gonna have to insist that winners actually take the prizes eh? I heard something about a unclaimed t-shirt?

I don't know, maybe Keith'll tell us, but it doesn't say anything about it in the rules, so it's up to the organizer I guess. I'm sure you don't have to be a messer to man or woman a checkpoint

Hell yeah as long as you got Paypal, I'm going to write the tickets out as they come in this time, to avoid doing that just before the draw

Here's my new fixie...

The riser bar and stem combo is temporary.

Will post revised pics with eggbeater pedals and drop bars.

Enjoy!

I dunno. They come with any. But there's a plastic ring around the bolt to prevent some dirt and stuff. I think... Does your come with dust caps?

You betcha! They're the high-flange, bling-bling, now-I-can-lock-my-bike-and-be-ultra-worried-and-paranoid-now, dura-ace hubs.

It was fantastic should-a come a bottomless cup! The beer just kept flowing & flowing & flowing. We were then asked to start wrapping it up so it stopped flowing at that point, but not bad for $5.00.

In a hilarious turn of events, a friend of mine has given me a set of Shimano 600 derailleurs and I'm turning the Gardin into a geared road bike. My bank account and I are going to hell.

edit: How's everyone doing on the "East side", as kids are saying nowadays? Riding after I get back? Yesh?

Nice bikes! Those hubs are extra cool now that they've stopped making the high flange, at least I seem to remember hearing that.

I won't be out riding today. I've got a lot of stuff to do before school tomorrow (?!!?) and yesterday was a bit off the radar what with the brewery tour de force.
