    guys at my shop are fast. didn't want to take the mountain bike on a roadie ride.
    i tried riding the fixed gear in to work a few times, but it was too tiring to do that then work for 9 hours and ride home. i would end up spending the entire day's paycheck on food and caffeine in order to get through the day.
    also, it was really really fun. most passing clearance i've ever gotten from cars.

    I notice that too, only when I've got a crap load of stuff are they conscience, although there are still jerks who get close

    Sorry, no pics but I did carry 4 cases of beer and three bags of ice on a Surly Big Dummy once. It belonged to a friend and he let me ride it up the gas station to get supplies for the evening. Everyone at the gas station was really stoked to see me load up that bike and ride away. Bike handled really well; could've carried a lot more weight with no trouble.

    This looked like something to post about here. You guys may have seen this already. If not then it may get your creative juices going.
    I'm voting Gyeswho FTW!

    Grocery Getter Contest
    More information to follow. Contest officially begins March 20, 2009 and all pertinent info will be posted here.
    General Rules.....
    1.Grocery Getter.
    2. No price limit.
    3. Must be able to transfer safely the following: 25# bag of dog food and 10# bag of kitty liter,
    1 gal milk, 5# flour, pkg of 8 rolls of tp, 1 loaf of bread, 1 six-pack of beer, a 12oz bottle of maple syrup, etc, etc. A standard list of groceries will be provided here by the contest start date..
    4. $25 entrance fee to charity to be determined.
    5. Submission photos must show the grocery list loaded on the bike.
    6. Conveyance may include trailer, sidecar, extensive racks, skyhook accessories, etc.
    7. Judging based entirely on function and creativity.
    8. Must be fixed.
    9. All contest entries must be received by July 10, 2009.
    10. Prizes to be determined by contest start.

    I have the utmost confidence that the judges will look past the $ spent and find the winner. I see no reason for someone to be limited to choosing between either a crappy crankset or a decent set of tires. These bikes are meant for utility.
