    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.

    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?

    and

    Super tasty.

    I'm working on getting some rides/races and maybe even a safety meeting or two sponsored with some fine brews. seriously though.

    and for all you hip hop heads out there i forgot to mention http://www.jpitts.org/ lots of good music on their podcast albeit some annoying rambling in between songs at times.

    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).

    Keith: I'd be down with a pair of the SPD pedals. Really I only need the left, but since I think I'm the only one-legged person in these forums, the chances of a person only needing a right is slim!

    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.
