Fun, I rode one of those this fall as well as some other crazy contraptions of bicycles at the Bike Kill block party. I can totally see myself making some crazy ass project bikes in the next year or so.

Funny thing is, its so fun to ride, I have a hard time getting back on my $5K+ Trail SX. I never thought I'd enjoy a Huffy. I just find myself jumping on it and riding around the park.

Cool,

it get's a lot better, and more fun. It's all about strategy, especially with hills.

Rhythm.....that's what it is for me.

I have felt less tired on my fixed after a 60 miler then I have on some geared 60 milers.

it'll grow on you.

I got SHELLED last weekend at the Copperas Cove road race in Tx. My team's plan was for me to ride like an asshole....attacking hills, pulling off the front, covering breaks, etc...in order to protect one of our guys who needs upgrade points. Well, the '08 New Mexico state RR champion (cat3) showed up for our 4/5 race. Needless to say, I was in over my head and was smoked by mile 35. It turns out he was sandbagging the race (obviously). He was off of the front for at least an hour. I flailed in the wind to reel him in (along with a few of my teammates). We caught him twice but he won the race. What is it with roadies and cheating?

that's gotta be the weirdest triple I've ever seen - or is that the latest trend, two tiny rings and one massive pie plate?

Gorgeous bike, though.

Saw those fenders, with a custom pinstripe at the Hot Tubes shop yesterday. Toby was building up a gorgeous custom touring rig.
