    yay, bikes.

    I don't suppose I could beg, buy, borrow or steal some ratty single speed components off someone so I can be ready for lift off. I have:

    frame (geared dropouts)
    fork
    bars & stem
    seatpost & seat
    wheelset
    brakes

    Whick leaves me looking for:

    Crank & BB
    SS chainring
    SS cog and spacers for freehub conversion
    Chain
    Chain tensioner

    Crank and BB are the biggies and since I am such a damn cheapa$$...

    Don't necessarily have parts to lend, but....

    I've got a large Surly 1x1 you can borrow for the event.

    Let me know or you can call Matt at the Alpha Bicycle 303 220 9799.

    I'd be more than glad to loan it out.

    Head over the ss board and check out the faq. I made my ss for $0.00 from a geared hardtail, rode it that way a fair amount w/zero problems. Use an old der for the tensioner, etc.
    Take the long cut, we'll get there eventually.

    Can we get a general time on the start of this thing. I have a Christmas party that I do not mind bugging out early on but I gotta have at least a time.

    This is evidence that you don't have your priorities straight. You must be ready to ride at all times.

    This is unofficial of course, as we have not received information from the Uranus branch, but the trend has been to be ready to ride around the six-ish time slot. Perhaps we'll set it up so folks can catch the 5:40 PM RTD space cruiser to Nederland (if galactic forces decide to hold the event there) for the opening ceremonies and shootings before embarking on a deep space mission.

    Sorry for the ambiguity, but there are few accurate weather forcasts for 15 days out. We'll have times and locations late next week when we get a better read on that.

    PattD,

    Thanks for the offer. A large might be a bit big for me but in a pinch it could work. Let me see if I can get my ghetto SS built first and you will hear from me if I don't.

    I am an intergalactic virgin and a SS virgin. If all goes well with build and parts procurement I plan on making the intergalactic SS championships the first time I pedal a SS on the dirt. Alcohol should lessen the pain.
