I don't know Fast Boy personally, but I have been following & admiring his writing ever since seeing one of his terrific bikes parked outside of NYC Velo one afternoon. Which was not my intention! I just wanted to look at photos of his nifty bicycles. But his writing is sharply perceptive in the face of pretty awful things having to do with cancer, and that skill made his writing challenging and thought provoking in the best sorts of ways. This most current piece is no different. If anything, it is some of his best writing, but it also relays some of his worst news. I only put it here because I know that he has fans at VSalon. If you don't know anything about him, then you might read some of the stories he's been telling about his quest for recovery and health. Not a sob story. Good, strong, clear-head. Plus he is a framebuilder, some contributors here have his bikes and some are his friends and riding buddies. Whatever the case, I know we all hope for the best.
