I really like the bike with the chipped up copper-coloured paintjob and its bar setup. Flipped risers so he gets low but has a bit more leverage for riding on the ice. Also the guy with the crazy grippy tires, that's Bradyn featuring tires made by Keith. An impressive show of ice riding prowess and Keith's uber ice-tire-making skills.

Colin nice pic of the bike pile at the partay. Where did you go? I thought we were leaving at the same time but you were already gone like the wind when I got outside?

Good times last night!

Looks like I missed a good time. They did run a rubber class..bummer I like that. The chipped copper jobby is Petey's, Jim is wicked quick and smooth. I wonder if this is his dynasty, he toook last year as well. What about years previous? My buddy has some beautiful shots from Mtl's Ice Race, when I get copies I'll see if I can post them. I got one here sec.....actually i'll have to see if I can get permission to post this guy's shots first.

Good times last night!

I made my rounds of goodbyes, went downstairs, weather proofed myself, and de-interlocked my bike from the front porch cycle-orgy. You were still upstairs so i thought you had second thoughts and stayed. I do have to admit, I am known for disappearing in a flash sometimes.

to all the bikeforums folks i chatted with last night: good to meet you! once again, putting faces to screen names is always nice.

Just saw the latest FGG update; that Coppi is so nice CM, suh-weet! As are all the rest but something about the chromed lugs on the Coppi does it for me. Nice.

Yeah Keith's Coppi is super nice. I really like the Rossin in pursuit guise as well! The Suntour/Ambrosio wheels on the Coppi are a set that Keith built for me actually. They are on my bike now.
