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)

jumpinships!!! this saturday

alright kids, you have no excuse to miss the midwest alleycat jumpinships this saturday in columbus, oh.



Major Sponsors Include IRO (thank you Tony!), Pabst, TimBuk2, and Seagull Bags (Ohio!). I'm sure that there are others that I'm failing to mention as I don't have all of the information!

If you are coming from out of town, I may have some floor/couch space, so let me know!

There better be some kids from DC coming. It's not that far. carpool.

I know that there'll be some Chicago, Bloomington, and Pittsburgh, too! Come.

Don't count on Pittsburgh... Can you believe that I can't find one single person in this town who wants to race on Saturday? There is an all girls alleycat in town this weekend, and seemingly all of the guys are occupied with running it. Dammit all to hell.

Anyhow, if people from out of town are planning to come out and need floor space, please message me. I have some people already coming out, but i have enough space for several people (bring a sleeping bag or whatnot). Friday night there will be epic alcoholism at my house... race Saturday, then afterparty (epic alcoholism part deux).

I am way stoked about this race, if it's not obvious. Come out!

Last time -- The race is this Saturday, starting at 2:00pm. you better be here.

Doctor Who -- Well, the auction's "bidding" is done by riding your bike really fast for the items. All of the proceeds go directly to the BMEF (bike messenger emergency fund). All of the donations from sponsors are tax deductable and all that jazz.
