Dave's Bike Fund:

David Nice's fixie Surly CrossCheck 29er was stolen during the Great Divide Race forcing him out! Dude had to also walk 35 miles to get to the nearest town. Oh yea, they got grizzly bears up in them thar hills too.

The Great Divide Race is a self-supported, solo competition following the 2,490-mile Great Divide Mountain Bike Route. Traversing Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico, the route demands over 200,000 feet of climbing along it's length. Competitors carry all equipment necessary to negotiate the backcountry, restocking on food and other supplies from the small towns along the route.

A fund has been setup by David's friend Scott Taylor at Salvagetti. Scott has already ordered lots of stuff out of his own pocket. If you can spare anything, even $5 point your PayPal donation to: Scott_at_salvagetti.com

This bike was his only means of transportation! Let's pull together to help out Dave. I put $20 in and I know a lot of rider out there carry that around in just sports gel alone. So any little bit helps, THANKS!

Man I never thought anything would piss me off more than getting my own bike stolen. Reading the blog it looks like he is out of the race.(obvioius I know but was hoping he could get a loaner and continue on).

Looks like he is Denver based. Would be happy to help out with whatever is in my parts bin here in Denver.

Is this the infamous SlowerThanSnot?

Yup, Dave is SlowerThenSnot.
Help if you can, even if he does not know the difference between "then" and "than." ;)

Glad to see you back in one piece man. I heard about you on some news report from some country radio station around Salida over the weekend. I gotta catch up with you soon and buy you a beer or two.
