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)

Thanks for the pics.

This is the first year I haven't been able to help organize it. Looks like it turned out awesome with 160 riders, double what we had last year. As far as I know that makes it the largest alleycat in ATL history. Next year we'll have 320.

Anyone who stays at Jay's place has a good time. I spent many nights there with Karl and Emma as a result of the kegerator.

Wow, I wish my grips/spokecards/arrospok/jacket/hair were color coordinated.

(actually, I shouldn't talk. My bike is green as ****)

You won a pair of jeans? Thats pretty random. What place did you come in and how long was the race? Looks like a good time to me.

Man, it was a fun time last night. My partner blows though. Court, I should have a never bailed on you as a partner. If I would've stayed with you as my partner, I would've finished the race. Instead, my partner blows down some random side street and I lost him. I finished the race but it was by myself. I did puke on a Lexus on the last stretch there on Moreland Ave

I hope everyone is ok.

I didn't hear about the trainhoping. Was it MARTA or one of the freight trains?

Last year there were a few kids (notably, those who now run No Brakes) who rode on the freeway for a stretch.

I'm waiting for my rundown email from Jes. She's promised to include photos.

Not a bad way to avoid lights and traffic in a race. Will remember.
