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)

Richmond, VA cycling caps?

This is pretty random, but does anybody remember about 6 or 8 yrs ago when Richmond messengers had cycling caps that said "Richmond" on one side of the brim, and then when you flipped the brim up it said "**** Yall?"

If so, I'm scrounging around for a picture of one of these hats (or better yet, I'll buy one off somebody)?

If I remember correctly, they made like 10 of the "**** ya'll" hats, and the rest were just "Richmond." Talk to somebody who did Sprint Club, it was one of those dudes, maybe one of the Stu's, maybe a Cutthroats collabo? Can't quite remember.

I have one of the Richmond caps, but sadly it doesnt say **** Yall on the bottom....I should of asked the carytown store about it when I was up there.
(I think this is a good enough reason to drive up there again)

I believe they gave them out during an alleycat a few years back. Impossible to get now unless you get a lucky trade.

I also don't recall seeing them at CBC... ever. Although Braden (who is on here as BradenCBC) can confirm their origin.

Also would like to promote Zach & Noelle's new coffee shop Lamplighter, it's the ish, check it out (and they will also be able to confirm the Cut-Throat involvement).

I'd think that's the type of thing that even if you do happen to find one, you're kind of a poser for wearing it if you didn't participate in that alleycat.

I'll have to check out Lamplighter next time I'm down in RVA.

Yeah, I usually frequent Crossroads because of all the varieties, but the coffee at Lamplighter has a lot more flavor. Check it out!

Sorry for the hijack!

No really...Wilmington. As down-east as it gets. Got no love for that Piedmont Dip.
