Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

ok, y'all need to come.
this ain't our race, but it's a fun race. we'll fill in the weekend.
we will take good care of you. pirates will arrange housing as necessary, along with before-events, sparks-a-plenty, after-events, and lovely DC photo opportunities.
our breaking-arms record is now 1 of 2.

http://www.latenightfrostbite.com/

ALL EVENTS ARE RAIN OR SHINE. if you're going to be a *****, stay the **** out of our city. we're pirates and we roll like that.

FRIDAY NIGHT:
Ken's bday party, for those in NYC
Possible low-key pillage for early arrivals, pm for info.

SATURDAY (my mom's bday. please remind me to call. please.):
2pm Monster Truck Show , $10ish, MCI Center. Meetup at F and 5th.
4:30pm Slow easy orientation for the out of towners ride, dinner, ****ing cheap drinks, BF love. Meetup at 14th & K.
5:30om if you missed the ride you can find us getting ****faced at Asylum on $.25 high life pints.
8pm Registration, meetup at Warehouse (Remember, kids, 8pm registration means the race is gonna start sometime after 9pm, so don't get your panties in a bundle about getting there on time, ok?)
madness to follow.

SUNDAY (Ken's freaking birthday):
fix events, as Dan schedules.
afternoon ride and beer, sunday style. details TBA.

MONDAY:
12:30pm - National Zoo - butterstick (the baby panda) viewing. I have 18 tix.


who's in?
Chicago? Boston? SF? we want to see you all out there. this is not a race to be missed.
i'm posting this plenty early so that you can make travel arrangements and commence smack-talking.

speaking of smack talking... it's been a while since i've gotten to race for real. i'm looking forward to it, and i'm going to bring it. game on.

I have to be honest, I tried to drink down a sparx and coughed it up because it tasted worse than 3 year old cough syrup that had been sitting in the sun.

Whats the secret to enjoying it

I need a place to sleep.

My resume: I like to race hard and hopefully I'll have a decent ride but regardless:

I love to drink too much.
I have no social skills but I'll try hard to be nice + entertaining, if that's yer bag.
I am pretty nice + honest with inclinations towards cleaning.

So you won't have to worry about my 40's. I'll even buy or trash yours!!!

ella: you can crash at my house. i'll pm you.

PNC's house will also be in full effect. he gets home from Tokyo on the 13th, so it's cutting it close, but he left spud in charge of it, so, yeah.

and... BF people... wanna do something before or after? I know s_9's birthday shindig is on Friday night in NYC. what if we did something either saturday late afternoon (3?) or sunday night? (do folks work on Monday? pretty much nobody in DC does cuz it's a federal holiday.) we could do our own dorky races, or we could just sit at a bar and get drunk. i like both.

Word. s_9 birthday party at Capones on Friday the 13th - a precursor (WITH GOLDSPRINTS) to the late night frostbite. Capones=221 N. 9th St in Williamsburg

QUALIFICATIONS: Someone must drag my unwilling ass on a bus down to DC. I won't be feeling well, and will complain the whole way, but it just won't be the same without me.

here's my suggestion: get on the bus directly from the bar, when you're still drunk, and carry booze with you. drink on the bus (maybe sleep a little), then crash once you hit DC.

last time I went to DC after drinking too much the night before, I ended up missing most of my friend's wedding because I basically woke up too late & nearly missed my ride down. Actually, my ride was kind enough to wait for my hungover, irresponsible self, and didn't kill me on the way down. She did pee in a cup in the front seat while her boyfriend was driving though. What's the point of all this? The point is that I heard the LNFB is dope, and NYC had a hell of a time last year, so we'll all go down again and rock it the way we rock.

I promise to not make such a quick exit as I did from the rico suave race....so I may end up at poopncow's as well (VA is sooo far away!) the more the merrier, right?!

chombo, I'll race you for the air mattress, which definitively leaves me sleeping on the floor.

yes! this is going to be awesome. I'm definitely selling whatever internal organs I have left for a decent wheel set now!

I vote for getting completely wrecked at capones and doing a mass exodus on the chinatown express so everyone can have their turn to fend off s_9's advances through the long and cold night/day ahead.
