    all I can think of is for 5k i could build a carbon race bike an aluminum crit bike and a vintage steel framed commuter All of which could stand out in a group ride which is what people by custom bikes for to stand out I just think if your going the custom route it better be for a purpose like racing or touring not pub crawling or grocery

Comments This past Saturday the Marymoor Velodrome Association invited Emerald Sprints to run a roller racing event for the 2012 season kick off party and fundraiser It has been over a year since Seattle s last roller racing event and it was great to bring it to a new and competitive crowd For those unfamiliar with our kit we pit two racers head to head on fork mounted stationary bikes for an indoors race to the finish We set the track to 500m and the audience can cheer as they watch the racers progress on the screen directly behind them at speeds closing in on 60mph By the end of the night we had plenty of tired legs and great times full breakdown after the cut The best of the night went to Tony Cordova who took the Men s Open championship belt with a time of only 18 997 seconds The MVA also provided belts for the top Women s Open Amara Edwards Men s Masters Adam Cerullo and Women s Masters Alexie Montaland There were some fantastic times out there but don t go resting on your laurels just yet Looking back into the results from our last major series the 2010 Championship Series that led to a final in Vegas a few of our top locals were getting times down in the 17 point somethings on the exact same setup including Saturday s Men s Open finalist Patrick Monteith Will you be the one to break the 18 second barrier next time Continue Reading Seattle Bike Expo and Pedal Party That s a wrap Written by Ryan on March 13 2012 Posted in Bicycle Events GO MEANS GO events Seattle No Comments Phew What a weekend First off let me say that Pedal Party was awesome A couple hundred folks showed and we got rad So pumped to see everybody and I m sure next year will even take it to a higher level The Seattle Bike Expo which I m told is the largest consumer based trade show for bicycles in the US took place last weekend and I paid my 2 to Bike Works to park the bike and my 10 to Cascade Bicycle Club to walk around for a while as a light rain fell outside I go to a number of things bicycle because I m a velophile not really much else for a reason except I like bikes and I guess that s enough I like to support as many bike events as I can because I want bike culture to grow in Seattle Of course it should be said that over the years I ve become much more jaded and harder to impress when it comes to bike expos and fairs I ve been spoiled by attending shows like NAHBS or Interbike where new product is introduced and everything is stepped up a notch when it comes to presentation Even shows like the San Francisco Bike Expo seem to attract a more diverse group 2011 having outdoor dirt jump demos and a massive Bike Swap that was quite possibly more impressive to me than the show itself Some of this has to do with the location of course San Francisco bike culture being decidedly more hip than Seattle some has to do with the vision of the organizers There are a number of ways of doing things as can be seen by the various expos that take place Cascade Bike Club has what is very likely the largest grossing bike expo in the US and so I m sure there isn t much motivation to change the program I was once again blown away by the number of cars that attend the event Shuttle buses are used to bring drivers from one part of the parking lot to the front door With a 2500 car lot that sure seemed to me like it was full there are a lot of people there 5 a car for the day and 10 to get in 8 for members there is some serious coin being made Seattle Bike Expo has in years past felt like more of a clearing house for shops to unload overstock and last years merchandise It can be a total madhouse racks and boxes being torn through by people standing or crouched shoulder to shoulder half a dozen hands digging deep for treasures made of spandex and 3M I personally don t do well in these situations Moving down the line you ll be told about this ride or that why you should visit Oakridge Oregon for mountain biking or Switzerland for road riding There is a benefit ride for everyone a hostel or a training camp Adventure companies tour guides energy drinks snack bars recovery drinks massage implements Nothing you NEED to ride but lots of things that according to the seller will make your ride better make YOU better There are so many companies and by extension booths with bad branding at these expos companies that don t have large marketing budgets and it shows There are gadgets and gizmos that look like you d see them on late night television in between reruns of Three s Company and Night Court Few booths attract my eye or pique my curiosity and I generally try sneak by the majority of them Then there are the booths that have no direct relation with bikes I m referring to the chiropractors foot doctors and discount sun glass booths It may make sense to the business exhibiting as they do have something of a captive audience at an expo like this I guess if my back was hurting while walking around the Bike Expo I may grab a card from the chiropractor It just seems to detract from

party It doesn t matter really I probably wouldn t like them anyway They obviously aren t trying hard enough The Seattle Bicycle Expo has come and gone another year and along with it the Go Means Go Pedal Party This was the second year for Pedal Party and came off as a success in it s energy attendance and overall alcohol consumption Last year you may remember we hosted the party with Baron Bicycles A great time was had at Nine Million in Unmarked Bills but the bars in the Fremont neighborhood are anything but fun on a weekend night so we decided to change things up a bit Learning from our mistakes this year we had a venue that was closer to downtown and also separated from the shit show that the weekends bring to urban Seattle The Grotto at the Rendezvous in Belltown is a nice little hole in the wall hole in the ground really that many folks have no idea is there A smallish space its plenty cozy without feeling cramped because you can fill it with 100 of your closest friends and family The flier for Pedal Party a work of art by Shogo Ota had the party starting at 5 The idea was to grab people as they were leaving the Expo and give them a place to come have a bite to eat and a drink Well there are very few of us that can start drinking at 5pm and continue until the bar closes it s an art really Robert the kitten wrangler brought a few folks with him after the Expo closed including the Bike Snob himself I always thought he d be taller Anyway back to the 5pm party it was slow starting and the house video wasn t working throwing out our big plan to show some bike movies to keep people occupied The tables around the room made for great spots for folks to talk over expo findings and look over the Urban Velo magazines that the good folks at UV sent out It was great to meet Russ and Laura who s adventures are blogged about on The Path Less Pedaled It was also fantastic to meet readers of the GMG blog and to talk with folks that are curious about the events that GMG does The readers of GMG is really why we do this whole thing and it s always great to hear people s thoughts on the blog DJ Cuddlebunny showed up at 8 with DJ Ryan perfect timing They began a long night of booty shaking beats that kept the dance floor going until they kicked us out These men rolled with the punches playing music that
