    i wasn't there, but, funny enough, i think i might have been at a little bit of the afterparty by accident. i went to the upenn baseball game and on the way home my friend and i stopped in a bob & barbara's for a few beers. there certainly were a lot of messenger types there, so i assumed that was where the after party was. if so, was that beautiful, all chromed looking low-rider bike near the back of the bar the prize for winning or up for raffle or something? that was sa sweet ride. hope y'all had fun.

    hahaha

    yeah, you saw my bike.... i thought it looked too nice with the stock paintjob, so I kinda customized it (the poor mans way) with blue painters tape on some of the tubes and my "nocoins" name in vinyl lettering.

    There must have been about 200 people there, so many great looking bikes, so much fun... probably the most fun I have had since I moved to Philly. I saw a lot of people with flats and getting into accidents or "almost accidents" which was sad.
    So many cool people, I cant wait for the next one.

    Does anyone have pictures from the day, I really wish I had brought a camera.

    I was at the afterparty... i stayed up until they announced the winners ....then I was outta there.

    I loved the track stand and backward circle conpetitions...made me wish I was better or at least not drunk off my ass to I could have competed.

    damn..I really shoulda stayed for the afterparty.. I was lazy and didnt feel like dealing with the crowd..so we took off oh well.. I definitley had fun, even though my brother in law seemed to be cursed.....breaking his chain in the first block..causing us to lose the group we were following...then getting a flat at the first checkpoint... and then falling while leaning on a wall and hitting his head..haha..not a good day for him

    but I definiltey had a good time didnt get many points..but I did have fun

    I also got a flyer for an alleycat in philly on the 24th if anyone is interested and didnt get a flyer...I could get you the info..I'm busy, unfortunately...

    we definltey all need to meet up sometime..

    the track stand competition was absolutely out of hand. some of the bikes I saw were also just sick. some of these kids are just too good at this. and it was awesome to see so many women take part.

    i agree, i was in the trackstand comp until they went to one-hand, then i was out. although i have tried backwards circles unsuccessfully, i didnt even think about trying it in competition!

    i have never seen so many beautiful track bikes at once either!
