    VSalon cap goes to the first forum member who does this and finishes in top 10 of their category.

    Second choice, I could claw your eyeball out with a pickle fork.

    Your call.

    I'm entered, but no chance to top 10; however, it would be an honor to have you claw out my eyeball.

    I did it in high school- just once for me- but one of the coolest sub cultural bike events... It really brings out some interesting people and very specific equipment

    You can always ride it outside of the race - it's good fun

    Not legally you can't- the road is closed to bikes expect during the races and practice rides

    It sure does. Saw a guy with a (he says) 8 pound fixie. I helped my friend strip down his road bike- straight carbon bar, thumb shifter for rear only, 1 brake lever and only front. Single 24th front chain ring. Saved quite a bit of weight.
    I'm actually thinking of running a much smaller front wheel to correct for the angle of the hill and save some weight.

    If you race open, are the rules UCI or are they open to modifications?

    Completely unsanctioned. I'd say unless you showed up with an electric assist, you'd be good to go.

    Obviously.
    For fun, we once made it up twice and got back down just before. Good times.
    Don't try it on carbon rims :-)
