Tons of fun.  I had a good race, and took home first place in Cat 2 SS. Thanks to Lisa (who won cat 2 women 12-34) and Fats in the Cats for the photos.

ssap_postparty I finished Eric’s 650b SS frame just in time for him to build it up in my basement and race it the next day at Singlespeedapalooza 2013. A big local race around here, and highly anticipated, this year’s pre-registration was limited to 250 riders and filled up in 2 hours in the beginning of February. Conditions on race day were absolutely perfect.  Dry, super fast, sunny and warm.  A great way to break in a new frame!
