    ... and if we just ... SINGLE SPEED WORLD CHAMPS 2004.....more info!

    OK, listen up you singlespeeders!

    Following the top-level meeting last night (held in Alex's flat with Dominos Pizza and Ardbeg whisky providing the refreshments!) the planning of the Singlespeed World champs has moved forward! There are still a few details to be confirmed still, but they should be sorted soon. The website (www.sswc2004.com) should be up some time in February with full details of the mayhem we have planned!

    We cant tell you everything, but we can give you a taster....


    1) There will be TWO different entry fees, a standard one and a VIP.

    standard one: Race entry, swag, entry to the pre-race party etc...

    VIP: All of the above PLUS some really exclusive limited edition stuff...possibly signed!

    2) Phaty has found a tattoo artist for the winners "prizes" and a design is being worked on as we speak!

    3) Phil drinks more coke than anyone (so I drank his share of the Ardbeg!)

    4) A race course is being scouted out by our German friends and should be confirmed soon...I look forward to the "what tyres for SSWC2004?" and "what gear for SSWC2004?" e-mails ("any" and "42:15 fixed")

    5) Raoul at Ferrous Engineering should grow a beard and live up a mountain like other successful (US) frame builders

    6) er, there is no #6: we ate all the pizza, drank the coke and had to go to work the next morning

    All this plus the other published info (see here:www.shitshifter.com/news.jsp?id=226 )

    While Phaty and the Germans are busy sorting things on the mainland, Phil (Nightfire) and my self have been left to baby-sit you guys.....so if you want to know where to stay (www.generatorhostels.com mention the secret password: "mountain bike" when booking!) where to fly to (any Berlin airport...its only a few Km's from any of them!) or where the best techno-nightclubs there are please contact us at: alexuk@sswc2004.com or philuk@sswc2004.com

    Later

    Drinking Coke is only acceptable if you dilute it with Vodka and Tia Maria ;-)

    You didn't lick me! (probably not enough beer in Germany for that!)...well not that I remember (ie. before about 10pm!) And why does Matt look taller than me...am I standing in a hole?

    Hurl,

    Phil was on the coke (the black watery stuff, not the white power!) I was on the 10yo single malt...gotta keep the side up!

    Andy,

    See if you want a proper frame, the guy building it must live on a different continent, in a shack, up a moutain! No matter how fany the paint it just won't ride the same now you know that! ;-)

    Anyway, I digress....only came over to cut-n-paste the info on to the DirtRag forum!

    Bye

    One day you will all see, and you will say, "Phil, I was wrong, coke is not bad after all"

    And I will embrace my singlespeed brothers and forgive you all.

    Sort of...

    Yep, but how many? when? These are things we need to know.....

    Phaty's e-mail is on the blink, so don't be suprised if it bounces back!
