Hey Namrita!

Beautiful bike. I have been researching the team and such and it seems like everyone is riding ss. I just got on the team, but need some assistance in creating my blog and such (adding pic's, etc.) How do you like the ss? I have previously just raced geared bikes, but will be attempting to race ss next year. Can you give me some hints on choosing gearing and such? I am going to be building up a ss and a geared version of the 29er's as soon as I get the goodies from Misty. Email me back @ msysing@scs.sk.ca.

Later, congrats on all the excellent results!

Reenie:

SM100...that has been the plan all along...unfortunately it's just not financially feasible this year :( ..Hopefully next year if my race schedule (and bank account) allow.

Hey Namrita,
Are you heading down to the 12 hours of Santos this year? There's a huge group of us Middle Georgians going down. Come join the party! Bring the pinky! :)

Sweet Lookin Bike. You sure have earned it with all the great results this year. Make sure to keep it away from the carpet. Hubba Bubba makes a sticky mess.
