    more random Vegas pix

    nice shots Martini! Sorry we never met.

    I would've loved to do my anual SS review earlier but got too busy juggling my own crap along with helping MTBR for the week. Had a great time with Shiggy, aosty, Ernesto, George Da Trog, Donkey, MTBR's Francois, Gregg, Forrest, Paul W., and all the other freaks I met, incl. Brent at PW who swagged me a pair of PW hubs! OK so they can both fit in the palm of my hand, but still... and hanging with Hurl @ CarsRCoffins always makes for an entertaining time as well

    here's DrunkCyclist's Jonny and CrC's Hurl

    Our very own Shiggy competes in the Hutchinson tubeless tire unmount/mount competition. Top 3 times took home new iPods. Unfortunately Shiggy is still using his portable 8-track now but he did beat the pants off this youngster! Go Shig!

    whew. Lots of good stuff to see. It was definitely the Year of the Chopper and Cruiser, so stand by to see an increase in those styles on the showroom floors.

    Thursday night I foolishly entered the Dirt Rag sponsored Las Vegas Alley Cat with my fixie Surly. When aosty and I arrived I immediately recognized several NYC messengers from the Red Light Go film. Uh oh. WTF are they doing here? :O They had no helmets, lights or brakes. Nice. It was at the same time the funnest and hardest race I've ever done, dodging clueless tourists and menacing cabs at night in pursuit of a freakin souvenir from the Circus Circus or a stack of "hooker business cards". Paul at Fossil Fool sent us all out in style with a bike rap, with a beat blasting from his mobile soul bike and wireless mic. Meanwhile one of his compadres blended fresh, cold margaritas with a blender attached to his Xtra-Cycle. Yum! *urp* We raced all over Sin City and when it was all said and done I came in 5th (out of 5 podium spots). Woo hoo! Swag! Thanks to Brad Q. at Dirt Rag for organizing.

    then it was on to Gooseberry Mesa for some much-needed Me time.

    Yup, I thought I recognized a couple of those cats from the RedLightGo film. Too funny. Notice I didn't bring a bike out there....too scared to brave the Vegas streets I guess:-)

    Glad you were able to follow the gooseberry directions. I almost got myself lost when we were heading out there!

    Great pics to boot!

    3 separate out n' back manifests. For me it was:

    1) bring back wedding chapel souvenirs and a stack of hooker cards about *yay* high, maybe an inch and a half. I was asking cabbies where a chapel was and finally found one. Stole, er, borrowed some items then raided the free newsstand things grabbing all the cards I could.

    2) Show that I've been to the Circus Circus, Luxor, and Hard Rock Hotel. Well the CC and the Luxor are pretty much at opposite ends of the strip, so that was a freakin haul. I rode into a drugstore to buy a bottle of water since I didn't bring any Oh, and I rear-ended a car when they stopped in front of me to turn. I hit the rear bumper, back wheel went up in the air, came down and I continued on F*cker.

    3) the final one turned into an on-the-spot quiz, which I answered (with a little coaxing from some unnamed passersby )

    I felt like I hauled ass, but the winner was sitting on the curb for at least 15-20 minutes by the time I showed up. Damn you professional bike messengers!

    good stuff

    Nice shots yerself. Crazy wierd place, Vegasss.

    Good stuff, HW!

    Dammit, man, I went to IB the wrong year! (that'd be last year...) No, seriously, last year was fun but I can tell it takes a couple visits for an IB newbie to hit his stride -- which you obviously did this time around.

    Next year... next year...

    After watching that guy ride for a bit, I am sure that he will be an ideal candidate for some serious "real world" testing!

    Those track cogs look great. Keep us posted on their availability.

    Also, do ya'll do a fixed/free hub spaced at 120?

    Thanks,

    We have more different fixie hubs than anyone on the planet...
    fixed free hi or low flange 120,126,and130, same goes for double fixed and single fixed. For fixed mtb I have fixed free or double fixed. You'd think that would be enough but people were asking if we had fixed disc at the show...
    Good to see some again and great to meet those I hadn't.

    Hurl,
    How'd you feel the next morning? I was cool but the bacon martini/countless beers combo did require a bit of intestinal recovery time the next AM.
    Cheers,

    A little paranoid

    about not having enough threads on the cog, eh? Jayzuz.

    Awesome looking, as expected. What's the expected retail? And what sizes are you going to stock? I'm kinda thinking of changing my 53:19 to a 39:14 to save some weight and gain some curb-hopping clearance.

    Sorry, theses are the only shots I really have right now.
    Don't know the weight savings, built them up without weighing.
    We will be doing a short run (read limited) of about 50 sets that will run about $50 more for the set. That price is not ground in stone as we did not calculate cycle times and set up...
    I'm thinking 32 spoke disc only. About a month away.
    Same goes for the Eccentrics. Both were last day ideas I just decided to go for, much like the RF cranks (please excuse the ramped ring.

    Regarding the cogs. They will price out about the same as the EAI at about $37 to $40 depending on the size. We will be doing all sizes from 13 to 22 in both widths. These will be out a couple months, 17s through 19s in 3/32 should be first.
    Yes, they will engage more thread and be made properly so well made hubs will not strip.

    The new SS frame kits are ready to go, 1499 gets frame, disc hubset, and Eccentric. Check your local SS shop or get with me to see if I have a dealer near you.

    Cheers,
    Brent
