Oh DAMN!!! The MuTT was a total succuess with several peeps stepping up to the task of designing, building and piloting bikes. trikes, quints and WTFs. A near perfect early Spring night brought out eight mutant designs and a bunch of crazy mofos to ride them! Phil brought two entries- one a rear suspension road/mtn/700c/650c hybrid and a quinticycle (a tricycle with training wheels) which won him a 12 pack of Blatz ($4.99) and "Bike Most Likely To Cause Physical Harm To Its Rider" recognition ( it forcebly ejecteded or broke on three different riders- see the photo of Andrew running across the finish line). Zack and Patrick shared the honours for "Most Ingenius/Original Design" with Zack's mid frame articulating swing frame and Patrick's.... hmmm... errr....front wheel drive chopper..errr...LOOK AT THE PICTURES!!! Team Radar Kitten and Safety Lamb brought a tandem. But not just any tandem. No this was a tandem pieced together from 4, maybe 5 bikes with a front linkage that defied the laws of physics and probably most bike laws as well. Brilliant. The Kitten Master brought the Anger jr trike (cutest entry and probably the one that put most people on the ground) and TAR the 24/16 adult trike two wheeler. But it was Danimal's TT specific areobar/fork mutant that got the winning time and the MuTT trophy (crashing spectacularly not once but twice in the only single person double elimination of the night). Those who didn't bring bikes drew lots and raced on the number they had chosen randomly with amazingly random results. Occassionally a "real" bike rider would come down the bike path, but oddly enough wouldn't stop. The ice fishers kept a wary distance. After the race it was on to the Corral Room for a good bye shindig for Lord Hayden. To all who participated, well done!.

You should really think of pitching the Anger Trike to the Livestrong folks (along with the goggles). I think it would go great with the 7.5 FX Livestrong.
