Hi I am sure everyone remembers the "OLD!!" bike I was asking about the other day. One question was not answerd. Can I race with this bike? "Keep in mind I dont care about winning justa having fun racing" Would it even be alowd to enter a race? Sorry if these questions sound dumb
If it works and nothing is going to fall off while riding...eschelon

then go for it. Hell, if it is a Huffy special, go for it. All I know is if I ever see anyone riding some pos department store bike at any group ride or race, I am going to personally go to that person and say to the person that they are a true badass and have earned my respect and admiration for riding that bike for the pure thrill of riding the bike...otherwise, I am going to stay the hell clear of this said person during the race/ride.

1. I'm sure it's legal to race

2. Win the race! It is more fun to beat the field on a POS bike than it is on a "respectable" bike. You will be THE MAN if you can pull it off. If nothing else, attack off the front and try to stay away. Nobody will expect it!

Now my next question. Are there any races in the N California area? I would not want to travel to far to race. I live near Sacremento
No racing anywhere in N Californiamr_spin

Just kidding, of course.

There's a ton of racing. You just have to find it. Check with your local bike shop, or check out the throwaway "magazine" called Cycle California.
