    Rudy is a friend of mine, and he rides the fixie all of the time. He rode a 38x18, drop bar Chester, rigid. He pulled 14 laps, and came in second. He did is last lap in a cordoury pink bunny suit. He was feeling some effects yesterday, but would have ridden with me to the SDMB meeting in town, if I would have rode. The main complaint, and this is from everybody that was there, is the dust that is still inhiabiting everyone's lungs. If you get the chance to come to TucSSon, drop me a line, and I can get an audience for you, and go for a ride with him.

    Yep. Rudy. Drop bar specific. 38x18. Front V-brake. Some parts bin bits. Phil hub. EAI cog. Heavy tires. Kind and mellow guy. Good attitude.

    Not unlike yourself, Keith.

    I rode with him for part of a couple laps at the Old Pueblo and he was just cruising around the course. I also had the pleasure of riding with him in Flagstaff last May. Watching him control the bike on some pretty gnarly terrain on Jedi was an eye opener. He's always smooth and under control, I felt a little guilty riding my FS rig and coasting. You probably won't meet a nicer guy than Rudy.

    I passed him out on a night lap. As I went by I mentioned that I dug his bike - I hope it sounded sincere to him.

    The dust was bad - I hacked up a lung after the first lap and the other lung on Monday.

    Yeah...I'm going to try to do Curiak's Great Divide jaunt in June. I might try to go to Brian Head or SM100...depends on finances and workload, which is nuts right now. The Soul Ride in AZ is a possibility in the fall. I also might try to come out and do some of the longer jaunts out your way (White Rim or Kokopelli) in the spring. We'll see! I'm pretty swamped and behind as always. :-)

    Word is he is coming over for the SSWC2004 in Berlin.....we are going to apply a major handicap to that guy!....wonder if he has ever tried Sambuka? its hardly alcholoic at all (ask Rikman)

    "He was feeling some effects yesterday" You don't say? I don't think I could walk or talk after that!

    Not sure on the pink bunny suit though

    There is no spoon

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for all the positive support. Makes me feel better as I'm still coughing up the dust from the desert.

    By the way do any of you have an image of me in the bunny suit.

    I must say that that I had an awsome support crew, and hearing "your a stud" on the trail just made me smile. Yeah, a hundred twenty-five pound stud.

    Thanks for all the Love.

    Drop bars, and I believe his last lap was in a Bunny suit. And he took second.

    FYI, the above posting was made because I was signed in on Rudy's computer while in Tucson. We are not the same person...even if we do wear matching trousers.

    A Flatliner should do the trick...

    Ingredients:

    1/2 oz. Sambuca
    1/2 oz. Tequila
    2 dashes of Tabasco Sauce

    Directions:

    1) Pour Sambuca a little over halfway of a shot glass
    2) Float the tequila
    3) Add the Tabasco.
    (Tabasco should sit right in the middle)

    I can vouch for how mind blowing this is

    GrannyGear.Com has a tougher one....

    GrannyGear has an even tougher catagory.... Singlespeed RIGID and they are known for having more technical courses than 24 Hours of Adrenalin. I've done both races, but not as a SS. GrannyGear IS tougher.

    Rigid SS is tougher than a fixie...in a bunny suit? Hhmm, that might be debatable. I can't recall if his bike was rigid as well though.

    Wink

    Rudy was on a rigid fixie in a bunny suit just prior to this pic being pic'd. 38X18.

    "Rigid SS is tougher than a fixie"....hmmm.

    My rigid SS was quite plush throughout the race. Me thinks fixie would be much tougher.
    I'm certainly not one to try that!

    A couple more shots of Rudy

    The first one Veelz hugging Rudy at the finish.
    The second is just a shot of Rudy and his bike.

    How Rudy feels about being hugged by a guy with painted toes? Not that there's anything wrong with that......

    Nice finish for Rudy. Since everyone else on the trail passed me, I can only assume that he did too. And I'm still horking up mud boogers from somewhere in my respitory system.

    Good job! Elixer of love

    Thanks for the tasty drink. I might use prior to my next ride. I'm missing some main ingredients so I'll just have to suck on a jalapeno and garlic juice.

    Sounds like he had a better race this year than last year.. His last lap was a bit ummm painful last year (And there was no bunny suit involved).

    I believe there was a team of unicyclers last weekend in Tucson too. Or, at least there was one person on a unicycle. I think he turned in like a 3 hour lap.

    I had to cut back on my discretionary spending this year.. I bought a house in March. But on the bright side in another 13 months or so my truck will be paid off . It's a good thing I already had so many bikes since I might not be able to afford to fix them this summer.

    So I see that when I come down there the Rain follows me, and when I don't it's dry..
    What's up with that??? I think Tucson can fix any winter drought problems by just sending a few plane tickets to Oregon.
