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)

alleycat-MASH showing-Show PDX 04/11

Flyer takes a sec to load.





Myself and Mowhawk Jen put this together for some fun times.
Just in case the flyer is not clear.. basically... we're having a smallish alleycat that ends at the Satyricon... there will be two or more bands playing there after the race and a showing of MASH in the middle. We ended up with TONS of prizes and giveaways so there will prolly have to be ten or more prize spots for the race including DFL and then most likely "Seth gets blacked out and gives stuff away" prizes.


if you have any questions please let me know...

Read about it on PDXFIXED.
But I plan on attending.

Im too slow to take the good prizes and too fast to get DFL. Plus I already own mash. But it should be a fun time regardless.

if you're in business casual AND riding a crosscheck you're running a big risk of getting hit with chains

Mwahahaha, I don't have to play dressup on Fridays luckily. I'm gonna try to get some of my friends to join the party on my janky ass scwhwinn beaters.

They love metal, and I figure making 'em watch mash maybe will get them to understand bikes are for people who aren't kids.

Nah, the strippers don't wear animal products and the food they serve there is all vegan. I've heard of the place and haven't checked it out yet.

I'm no veggie, I eat meat about once a month. That once a month is at the Acropolis, and it's a juicy cheap as hell steak.

Delicious every time, and it basically makes me almost sick everytime but damnit steak and strippers and delicious beer is a necessity from time to time.

Nah, you can ride whatever the hell you want.... Neither me or the other organizer give a flying ****.

MASH will be showing at or about 11 so that people that are at filmed by bike can still make it.

The race still starts about 7 so you should be there bout 630..... bands times are up in the air until our final pow wow tomorrow but it looks like the first one will be on bout 45 min after doors.... then the foot down and track stand comp... then another band prior to the showing if there is enough time... prizes in there too.

Prizes off the top of my head right now are but are not limited to:
Set of non machined velocity deep v's in baby blue 700c 36sp plus a LOT of nick nacks from velocity
$200 $100 and I think $50 x 2 gift certs to lucky lady... some for the race and some for the track stand/foot down
clothes from food fight
clothes from cadence
clothes for mash from Bells in Philly
gift certs for lunches etc at the vegan strip club
tons of gift certs (10 plus IIRC) from Laurelwood brewery for growlers and they are also setting us up with a ton of vegan food for the show..maybe non vegan too but I dont know
Veloshop put up RAD **** that will go unmentioned

Cannot remember what else... but yeah lots of non tattoo stuff.
