    2 miles? Is that the whole ride? Is it a race? That's like < 5 minutes!
    Free as in Freedom, but I'll take your free beer.

    You can ride 2 miles at 11% grade in under 5 minutes? I can only aspire to have massive guads like you.

    You can ride up a mountain at 25mph? Which professional cycling team are you on?
    I have a front brake, but I only use it for slowing or stopping.

    You wear boxing gloves to ride in?

    Looks like fun... and yeah, till I saw the gear, I wondered what was so difficult about a 2mile TT.

    It was the first stage in the Porky Gulch Classic

    http://www.porkygulchclassic.com/Page-261.html

    I did the crit on a geared bike and the cross on a single speed. After I rode the course fixed with no problems so I'm thinking of doing a cross race fixed

    haha....yeah, a little

    it was early March. waay too windy. I think the lore was that gusts were 90 mph+. we went up Lion's Head, which is the basic non-technical winter route. once we were above tree line and past the rocks it was very very very hard to walk due to the wind and the visibility was ****. I made the mistake of taking off a glove in the quasi-sheltered area 'round back of the observatory and my hand didn't feel good for the next few hours ;_;

    but fun!!!

    A) Way to sound like a total ******. Mt Washington 2 mile races are beyond grueling. Maybe you should do some major grade TT's before you ask a question in this tone again.
    B) Lots of track races are under 1 mile. I promise you the kilo event is less than easy and is raced under 5 minutes.
    Remember the 9/11's

    Congrats! I miss those hilly TT's. I used to race for Vermont Academy, and we'd race up at and near Mt. Washington.

    OMG! They are still doing the Story Land Criterium! That is so rad. Weirdest crit I ever did. Very memorable even 19 years later.

    You must have rode Ascutney? I had much pain there on a 96 degree day with a 26" gear. I made it up 3 times.......huf huf huf.....

    I never suffered as much on a bike as I did that day.

    Its a 03 Le Champion Team. I got the frame on Ebay from someone I suspect bought it for the components. I built it up with all Dura Ace from the 9 speed era, NOS and used with a Mavic GEL 28 spork front , GL 330 32 spoke rear.

    17.25 lbs and under $900.
