Goaty Goodness

P9090009Here's a sexxxxyyyy pic of Bikesoilers new singlespeed steed at Goat HQ in Richmond. Noice isn't it? Mungo bars, newly black powdered-coated Tange prestige frame, (mostly) Shimano 600 gruppo and my rather odd Selle San Marco Bertone saddle. (also know as the FartMaster 3000). All up it's 70" of tasty SS goodness.

In other local bike related news, pop over to the YarraBUG forum and yahoogroup for the latest on that pesky Queens Parade intersection.

And more Goaty goodness in the form of the latest Wheels of Justice meeting. Thar's movement at the station fer sure..

In non-bike related, less happier news our Lords and Masters have seen fit to detain a visiting community organiser from Houston. Apparently he's a threat to Australian national security.

Bullshit, bullshit and more bullshit.

    Is it fixed or ss? What sort of rear hub?

    I can't wait to get a job (how wrong does that sound!) and start building up the bike fleet again..

    I don't remember the goat head on the door though??

  • Hi cileo - that bicycle is obviously the Phar Lap of wheels.
    -re City of Cycles download time: here in Dialupville, waiting for all the beauty and wonder of cfsmtb to appear usually gives me time to make the bed.

    re Faded Beauty post: I have always loved the name and cannot understand why nobody named Archer has named a son Sturmey. Has more swish than 'Dhakoda'.

    today our Ballarat Courier reports from Stu Gillett that he has asked Lance Armstrong to come here and launched the Amy Fund. Sir Lance said 'when the French press-pack backs off me'.

    AMY GILLETT SAFE CYCLING FOUNDATION - Husband asks cycling legend to lend a hand
    By Andrew Jefferson
    Friday, 16 September 2005

    SIMON Gillett says he is optimistic that seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong will agree to fly to Australia later this year to launch the Amy Gillett Safe Cycling Foundation.

    As donations to the foundation approach $150,000, Mr Gillett has made a bold move to secure the services of cycling legend Mr Armstrong.

    Mr Gillett, from Buninyong, established the foundation in memory of his late wife Amy, who was killed in a training accident in Germany on July 18.

    Amy, 29, was training with five other members of the Australian cycling team when a teenage driver lost control of her car and ploughed into the group.

    Amy's five team-mates, Alexis Rhodes, 20, Louise Yaxley, 23, Katie Brown, 21, Lorian Graham, 27, and Kate Nichols, 20, are all going through a lengthy process of recovery.

    The foundation has raised $144,000 in the two months since the accident, including a $50,000 donation from the South Australian Government.

    Mr Gillett said he was not surprised by the early fundraising success and was optimistic that Mr Armstrong would agree to officially launch the foundation.

    "I'm aiming to raise $1 million in the first year and I'd like to see the first scholarships start early next year," Mr Gillett said.

    "I also want to sit down with the TAC and work on a hard-hitting safety awareness campaign which will really make a difference.

    "I've asked Lance Armstrong about coming over to launch the foundation but he said he won't make a firm decision until the press pack dies down in France.

    "Let's just say he hasn't said no yet and I'm optimistic that we have a chance of flying him over."

    The aims of the Amy Gillett Safe Cycling Foundation are three-fold: to provide support for the rehabilitation of Amy's five injured team-mates, to fund a scholarship program for young women cyclists, and to promote projects

    aimed at raising road-safety awareness amongst cyclists and motorists.
