    HED 3 wheels? Hipster!

    Oh, but seriously, is this even out in the U.S. yet? I have a friend
    who works at the local Landmark theater, and I've told him to be on
    the lookout for me, but no word yet.

    I read the book too, it was very inspirational. The guy went through a lot for sure, probably still is. I've been waiting for this movie to come out.

    The front wheel on that has at least 12 spokes. Not aero. Nice to see him on 20" front and 60" rear. FUNNY TRAIN

    I'm just reading Obree's autobiography now. The part where Moser rolls up his right trouser leg and borrows Obree's bike made me smile.

    that book is ****in scary at the end.
    "The only reasons anyone should ever ride in the rain is because a) you’ve had your license to operate a motor vehicle suspended by the state. b) you’re in a bike race in which case you’re not allowed to use fenders anyway. c) you’re from Portland- in which case my main problem is with your neck beard- not your bicycle...If you need to train when it’s pissing rain- buy a trainer or one of those cheap charter flights to Mallorca."
