Awesome! What gears you running? I am not a hipster either but ride a fixie. I just did the MS Great Maine Getaway which was a 100 mile Saturday and 75 mile Sunday, both on my fixed gear, which is all I ride. I've done the ride 3 times now, the Trek Across Maine twice on it, and all 57 miles of the Acadia carriage trails in an afternoon.

We need to get together sometime since almost no one rides them longer than a few miles. I'm running 46/17 on the road for the hills and 46/19 when I put the dirt tires on it for the woods. My highest average is 19.1 mph but I'm usually in the 16-18 range.

Wish I was there at the Fest because I'd certainly bring it.
