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)

Awesome! Are you planning to make more Tshirts for the race this year? Maybe I can sell another one for $67 just like the shirt from 04. bahahaha. I think this is probably the best race you guys put on... followed closely by the PBR 6 Pack Race. I cant wait until April 1st.

it is a scavenger type race. The manifest is usually 3 pages long with a point system for stuff. Also some of the checkpoints are april fools. So, if you show up to one and you fine nothing. You got april fooled. The checkpoints are scattered all over the city. I remember last year going to 8 and allegheny and then doing a far west one at the fire hosue bike shop (50th and baltimore). **** is a good time. Come see me and my dog work a checkpoint..
