Cyclehawk Messenger Bag, sweet!!
I have always preferred smaller frames, easier to shred wif!
Don’t tell Bike Snob..
It’s a cross between a Gamma World Shark and Frankenbike.
Got the one piece stem/bars from Jonny Cycles It did not fit any
of my current rides so I took it to City Bikes and they made it work!
Heres another cat that rides small frames..
INTENSE! ILLEGAL! UNDERGROUND!!!

Want to shout out Markham Travel for working with Velo City Tour!!
Thanks to Mike for helping with the booking and sponsoring!!
Velo City Weekend CHICAGO 2007!!!
Want to say WOW and THANKS! To the Chicago area posse!!
Carlos and I landed early Friday morning on a two day mission to represent and help implement Chicagos second annual Velo City event.
Around 3pm we met up with Val and Brean at Yojimbos Garage. (thanks for the beers Marcus!!)
Brean is a good friend who worked in NY for some time. Val is a great person and also a hardcore racer and organizer! Breans true love, together they promoted and produced the weekends events!
Thanks for putting us up in your awesome apartment! We were drinking beers and such, hope we didnt wreck the place to much!
The alleycat started with 57 riders! Blinged out Ali Gs were given an early start and your mission was to complete your manifest by returning to the start from several addresses. Who would pick the best route and utterly navigate the swift city streets?
Anzie Nelson and Jeff Perkins, thats who!!
I did one checkpoint and then cruised up and down State St. for a while. Getting confused with the upper and lower sreet system (it’s pretty cool), I rolled along the river for a while and eventually made it back to the start spot.
Rather than complete another manifest mission, I opted to head for the finish line and meet with Carlos who was filming the race. I did my best Felipe impression and tried to convince the race officials that I had won the race, they were not fooled.
Marc Maclean stepped off the blue line train and joined us. He had come to race the Ali G Cat but his plane was delayed! Marc was also to run registration and results the next day, glad he made it!
We went to the Gold Star for the awards and more beer!!
Get it done Crew!
Got rolling (kind of) early and met with a lot of people at a supermarket parking lot.
XXX RACING helped out with a school bus that transported 20+ riders to and from the track!!
Kenosha is the oldest track in use in the United States!! I was impressed with the condition and was psyched to see Josh who had helped us so much the year before.
Josh ran the days events with my help and our great crew of riders and volunteers!
Josh keeping the punks in line.
We divided the pack of 50 into four fields. Women, Messenger Men, City Biker One, City Biker Two.
We started off with Match Sprints. We did heats of five with two advancing all the way through the finals.
Also we ran a Miss and Out, 10 lap scratch, Tempo, Win and Out and a size 9 Chariot race for a pair of Knog shoes.
The racing was smooth and powerful! No crashes and I feel we may have inspired some new riders as well.
Jen Greenberg and Andrew Nordyke of Chicago (Team Triple X)
won the day and the tickets to the 15th Annual
Cycle Messenger World Championships in Dublin!!
Val Brostrom of Chicago and Lyle Hanson of Madison
took it for the City Bikers!!
Later that night there were IroSprints at a cool warehouse space!
