All City Championship Bandit Cross 8/16 & Movie Screening


Hello folks,
I'm pleased to announce that on August 16th we'll be running Bandit Cross down at our old stomping grounds of Hobo Camp in the Bryn Mawr Meadows.

If you're not familiar, Bandit Cross is a single speed cyclocross race (though any type of bike is allowed, if you've got a single speed bring it), that is free to all.  There is no entry fee, no prizes, and no bad attitudes.  It's a free for all event designed to get more people in the cycling community stoked on racing cross.

After the event we will head to Fulton Brewery for the Minneapolis premier of Bandit Cross: Ruining It For Everyone and plenty of beer.

If you haven't seen the trailer, it's a 15 minute documentary produced by QBP about my little race series.  The intent of which is to show people that they too can organize one of these things and do something good for their cycling community.

What we ride:  Nick’s Space Horse

I hesitated posting pictures of my personal Space Horse build as it felt a little “braggy” to me but I really want to give you all a glimpse into where my brain is at. Buckle up and hold on. So truth be told I was never a big fan of the Space Horse. My only experience being the annual SaddleDrive industry event where I’d grab one and take it for a quick lap around the lower parking lot and back up the hill. The bikes are set up “to fit everyone” so the Space Horse always felt way too tall and uninspiring. Meh. In August of last year my opinion drastically changed.
