Fuzz detection perhaps?

And now that we know there's a pink bike with an Irishman on it, we can yell "Guinness" at him if we see him.

Also there has been some talk of re-starting up the Fixed Unwin St. sprints this summer. We used to do a weekly thing down there with incremented 300m marks painted on the road. Usually a 2 up sprint, starting at 300m....first 100 are pace to get clipped/strapped in....after that anyone can sprint out whenever the mood strikes. We used to get about 12-15 regulars out with a couple of cold ones on the sideline thrown in for good measure. We had a pretty good flag and radio system for safety and it was always a good time. Anyone here like to participate?

I am definitely down for sure, sounds like a lot of fun.

Some local, and he even gives credit to Jan at High Park Cycle. Anyone seen this guy around?
Hrm, I am pretty sure that that bike is an old Urbanite frame Jan showed me. He wanted 500$ for the frame/fork at the time. Drilled front and rear plus water bottle mounts indicate that it is a "track-inspired" road frame.

Are those little chain hanger thingys on most track bikes? Does the rear spacing look a bit wide to anyone else?

Starter and finish line guy have radios and flags to indicate when cars are not coming. It is a public road so we came up with this system....it has always worked well.

I just got more stuff from them recently.. I have the 'break' and 'esped' shirts, the 'foreign' cap and the 'manifold'. I could potentially be up for something else though (I like the Noir hoodie).

There are about 20 pairs all told but some of em have blown bearings etc. I think a pair of left's is not out of the question. They won't be here till saturday though so y'all will have to wait till then.
