I have no idea how he knows you. But he says he's been mistaken for a guy who rides a Langster with red bar tape named Craig before. Does the evil clown go by Craig?
I do ride a langster with red bar tape but name is Colin (that's kinda close i guess).

this is what i look like burning a couch:


this is what i look like under the influence:


this is what a bananna surrounded with waffle and drenched in chocolate sauce looks like:


now i really want to know who this person is. and another one of those banannas.
did you get his name?

Didn't get his name. He was wearing a Catlike helmet and riding a bike with red deep-V's, if that helps any. He also said some things that indicated that his butt has high-class taste (ie) he is a saddle snob.

Not that I'm down on having a high-class butt. I mean... if you're not going to take care of your ass, who will?

(edit) I love using "you're" and "your" properly. It warms my little black heart.

(edit2) Upon seeing proper pictures of you, that guy looked nothing like you. Except that he was white and had a well-kempt beard.

Good luck to everyone whose racing and hope to see you there. I'll have a helmet cam taped to the top of my head so I should be hard to miss!

Yay for spring and warm!!

For any of the taller crew here. I am selling my Bianchi Volpe cross frame for cheap. 60cm. 1 inch threaded. Fender and rack braze-ons. Included is the original fork (with fender bosses) Shimano XT headset (mint) and Axiom 2 bolt seatpost. It is a good all arounder as it has a half horizontal dropout for fixed/SS. P.M. me if anyone is interested.
It is the Orange fixie I posted on FGG a while back if you want a pic. I would also be willing to throw in a Level hub/ Mavic Open Pro rear wheel for a great price.

Tempting! I don't have a cross bike...

I have some stuff to bring back to you Keith. The wheels are done and I'm very happy with them so far on the short but fun 60kms I've had time to put on them

The only services we really receive that aren't paid for by the municipality are schooling and healthcare, and we know how poorly run those are. Cities always get the short end of the stick, and much of the taxes we pay are subsidizing areas that really don't need it, even though WE need it.

Nobody has the balls, 4 years isn't enough time to make serious changes and suburbanites vote with their ass and their wallet. Its a bad situation.

And a safe ride tonight folks. I'll be out for the Saturday ride for the Aussie with the broken leg thang, but have to work tonight.

hahaha yeah true... I should see if I can get the same one (It's one of those black Kalin Zoom ones, but I stripped the paint and polished it) in the right diameter for my mountain bike. Now that may sound obvious... but it hadn't occured to me yet.

Tired of missing the Fixed Gear Symposium in Michigan every year?
Like free beers?
Have time to hang out, and then ride?

If you answered 'YES' to any of these questions, then I have fun and exciting news for you! But this is just a teaser.

Keep an eye out for a colourful poster in the coming weeks with the rest of the info...
