I appreciate it, and everyone who offered me a wheel. I however got a wheel from the most honorable of men. The one they call Peter Emerson.
Quoting William Dugan <[log in to unmask]>:
There are no photographical records of that bike, but this was an imitation
cruiser someone conjured.
I'm off to battle the Gila Monster next week.
Also, in regards to the wheels, I'd let you borrow a wheel if I was nearby.
Last time I let someone borrow a set of race wheels, it was Marshall Ambros
and he soloed to victory in the Green Mtn Criterium on a set of Cosmic
Carbone Clinchers. Best of luck!

was actually in the 2007 part of that year. Just saying. Also race wheels
are so last year.

once upon a time Will Dugan had a Felt BMX bike. this was all he had and
he did not complain. it was the only bike made in his size. yet he rode
that bike to many a victory. once even beating Alfred Blythe's Strava
record for the GMBC loop. Blythe had cut the path through the woods and
gradded the road himself many years ago. The road formerly known as the
Blythian Way. after creating the road and milking an entire herd of
Blythe raced that very loop and left his time engraved on a tree that
stood where the Davis Center now lies. This method of public bragging
inspired the modern Strava Application. however, Blythe was not a
by any means and this showcase of his achievement was meant only to
and coax others into joining him in his quest for east coast and
national domination via 2 wheels.
one bitter january as legend has it will Dugan headed the call laid
down...nay engraved upon that massive maple. and mounted his BMX with
in his belly. His trip was almost cut short when he climbed out of the
mountain leading down spear street. ..you think of it as a dip now but
assured it was a venerable alp in 2005...due to unprecedented levels of
erosion and the great valentines day storm of 2006...but I digress. a
ran him off the road and with that his bike was broken. but give up was
in his creed and he quickly carved a mold for a new frame in the snow
then sacrificed his water bottle and laid in the snow to melt what more
needed and poured the water into the mold. And with that a bike frame
of ice was born. as the day light slipped into lake Champlain will
moved his BMX drive train to the ice bike and was off. The rest of the
story is easy to figure out.
the point is if Will Dugan can smash Alfred Blythe's record aboard a
made of ice, poured with snow melted from his own body heat. you can
on a pair of wheels made of butter.
