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)

If you look at the RESULTS section, you will see the ever-so-popular "Ian Vegan" (aka-DumpsterVegan). Nice work on your first Alleycat!

Hey William Karsten-
That's my bud Jack, who now lives in NY. We messed a bit in 90'...real stand up guy - someone I'd trust.But then again, I am sure you have only the best parts, best frame, wear tanning lotion in the winter and can bounce quarters off your abs. I thought High School was over. If we were all the same, life would suck. Why weren't you out there racing?
***If you want to see more pics of messengers (and one more of Jack) you can visit the "Red Light Go" website - RLG is a movie about alleycat racing in NY.***

Hells yeah, that race was fun! Too bad I don't get any love on the pictures page, but, well, that's the way it goes sometimes!

Ha ha ha ha ha, damn right. I was BEAT. Have you ever read "The Immortal Class" by Travis Culley (the guy who came in second overall)? It's pretty damn good.

Yeah. Well written!
Travis is a very determined person (he was discussing 'cheating' at the Alleycat at the finals table - I guess there was some attempts at creative completion of the race). I have yet to see him idle! Always doing something...and doing it passionately. Well spoken too.

Is the Seattle thing this year (2003) or next year (2004)? I seem to remember I was there for Labour Day this year, but I'm not sure. It would be a bummer if I was there and didn't know it was on.
