Prizes:
(from the following sponsors)

Velocity
Velocity is committed to providing the finest bicycle rims, wheels, water bottle cages and accessories. We strive to achieve this by providing superior service, competitive pricing and premium quality products to independent bicycle dealerships, mail order houses, wholesale distributors and original equipment manufacturers of wheels and bicycles.

Seagull Bags
Seagull Bags specializes in waterproof, high-quality custom courier bags. What began as one guy in a basement trying to build the perfect bag has grown into a respected but low-profile maker of custom messenger gear. While our bags have gained international acclaim for their durability, smart design and custom embroidery and artwork, our staff is small enough to lend close personal attention to every order; we pride ourselves on working directly with you to build a bag exactly to your specifications.

Knog
KNOG loves bikes and bike gear for the city streets - simple.

SOMA
Soma Fabrications started out 7 years ago with a goal to offer professionally crafted affordable steel bicycle frames, so enthusiasts could hang whatever parts they wanted - whether they were something new n' spiffy or something that's been liberated off a retired beater.

Laek House
Laek House is the product of living in a congested area coupled with the desire to use and champion alternative transportation. Thing is, riding in a city can be a pretty thrilling as you weave through both automotive and pedestrian traffic, but thrills equal danger. You can’t always predict what people are going to do; you need to maximize your chances.

Sopo Bikes
Our mission ... is to create equitable access to cycling by providing affordable bicycle maintenance, services and education.

Eighth Inch
Eighth inch is a division of Wheel and Sproket. Since 1973 Wheel and Sprocket has been providing Wisconsin cyclists with the bikes, parts, and service they need to keep riding. The company has grown to house six retail locations throughout the state and is now recognized as one of the nations top bicycle retailers.

Harlot Clothing
Harlot. Finally, cycling apparel and activewear for the rest of us. No shiny lycra, no bulky pads. No pink butterflies, no neon anything. Just simple lines & style that let you get on with your sport. We understand people like you, because we are people like you. We ride, run, hike, and play with the best of them, and we put that knowledge straight into our products. Our apparel is made in the USA in small batches.

Spoke Punchers
Custom bike hats that are hand dyed and printed... along with a few other goodies. Offers a selection of bike polo apparel.

Vaya Bags
Each bag is hand made with love and care. Please contact us using the contact info below to place an order or with any questions you may have. We're always happy to help.

Mer Bags
Custom Messenger Bags. Made in USA.

Transient Bags
Transient Bag Co. Is a new up and coming bag and apparel company. We are a small homegrown company. Everything we make is handmade. From the countless hours of cutting patterns, to the even more countless hours of making the bags. We dump our hearts and souls into these bags. Let's just say, if you do something for 70hrs a week that you hate, then you need to look for something new to do.

Fabric Horse
We are a small company in Philadelphia sewing to make your day a little brighter, your load a little lighter.

Burro
Chris has been upholstering for 5 years and has guided Matt from the beginning of Burro. The two work in unison to to produce long lasting bags for hard working people. Burros, the animals, are used primarily as pack animals, making it an easy choice for a name. Your bag takes all the load off your hands that would normally carry and places it comfortably on your back.

Commuter Culture
Showcasing people and communities with a unique way of doing what we all deal with everyday: commuting. Whether that manifests itself with customized surfer vans, a world-class bicycle culture, or national ridership trends on rail lines, this site covers real info. The online magazine is both unique for Atlanta and very topical in this woeful post-2008 America.

Alchemy Goods
Our mission is simple: “Turning useless into useful.” Alchemy is the medieval science of turning lead into gold. More generally, it means magically turning something of lesser value into something of greater value. For us, the value isn’t economical so much as ecological. We look for materials that are normally discarded that might have value with a little bit of imagination and some hard work. Every Alchemy Goods bag purchased represents one less part of our world destroyed. That’s why all our products should have the highest possible recycled content, but also be superbly functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Trash Bags
I'm a small bag company run by current messenger Andy Larson, operating in Minneapolis, MN. Trash Bags is aimed to incorporate the most durable features into our base model bags meaning you get the most bang for your buck--and I'm just one dude cutting and sewing--you can customize very easily.

Transit Bags
Custom messenger bags from the heart of downtown ATL.

Loose Nuts
Loose Nuts Wheels was started by Chris and Ryan in 2008 to provide Athens GA with a consistent source for high quality, hand-built custom bicycle wheels at reasonable prices. The everyday rider needs a wheel that is designed for them as an individual rather than as a demographic, a wheel that is not only lightweight and attractive, but is also strong, durable and easy to service. We love to build wheels for any combination of bike, rider and terrain and believe that the best wheel is hand-built, designed for you, built by cyclists for cyclists.

Under the Weather
Under The Weather was started by Ana´s Fritzlan in a minuscule apartment in Amsterdam in late 2000. Relocated to Toronto in late 2001, it has expanded significantly, though remains a very personal, hands-on business. We produce all of our messenger bags and screen-print all of our t-shirts in our own small workshop. Our skirt and pants (now out of production) were originally made entirely on site until 2005 when we contracted assembly to a local sewing company a few blocks away, then brought the pants and skirts back to our workshop for finishing. We really appreciate the incredibly warm reception we have received from everyone for our technical clothing designs, but we will continue to make our focus quality messenger bags made from the best materials with the best construction.

Yanco Pads
THE NEW ALL-IN-ONE YANCOPADS are treated for water resistancy, have a 3m™ scotchlite reflective label, egrips« non-slip silicone patch, and our lock-loop feature keeps your pad and bike safe. yancopads are 18" and now come in THE NEW YANCOMINI size of 5 1/2".

IRO
Makers of fine, affordable fixed gear bikes.

Oury Grips
Oury Makes great grips, plain and simple.

Cognition Caps
Our love of cycling runs the gamut from track racing to mountain biking and everything in between, so naturally we have an interest in the function and fashion of the clothing and equipment that go along with that lifestyle. We’re both regular commuters and racers, and we had some ideas about an aesthetic we wanted to pursue that we didn’t see readily available, so we saw it as an opportunity to give something back to the community that we love.

Cafe Octane
Good coffee in Atlanta.

Thanks everyone who made it out to the AMI ... it was a huge success! I will update here later once Maggie tallies up all the money we made for Sopo this weekend. We had teams from as far north as Philly and as far south as Baton Rouge (although we also had teams from Florida come as well). I am pretty sure everyone got lots of free swag also. The only bad thing was the collision during the alleycat, but no one got seriously injured, so it's all good. Charleston people - Zac and Shelley - it was a pleasure to play on Skull Punchers as an honorary Charlestonian. Gabe mentioned there might be an alleycat in July and John said something about another one in September, so I will definitely try and make it out.

Hope your all had as much fun as I did. And might I say, Ray is also extremely pleased with his new nickname, Del Taco.
