Hey everyone, new to the site (duh), alright, I've recently moved to Colorado from Washington (still spend a decent amount of time there, working in Seattle this summer). Basically, I've been riding my bike and working on building bikes out of scrap/stolen parts since I got here and it blows not knowing folks, y'know? It'd be rad to get to know some fellow Colorado people, find a squat to chill at, etc. I'm between living in school housing and sleeping at Rhinoceropolis every now and then.

Hit me up, and long live the pirates!

I'm not in Colorado at the moment, but I'm planning to swing through in the summer. I'd love to learn how to build bikes from scratch.

Welcome to the site. Do you build mutant/freak bikes by chance? I remember that colorado springs & denver have a good bike culture. There were a few builders making tall bikes, pixies & choppers when i came thru in august heading to BRC.

Yeah, I'm pretty well acquainted with freak bike culture! Did a brief stint jousting when I knew other people who did it. I've found the bike culture here really strong. A few friends and I are starting a free bike co-op/bike squat sometime soon, which should be really neat. I'm about to finish up my first tall bike out here, as well!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
