Alphabet bikes or Post card for Odin

I'd like to try my hand a gravel race.  One of the closer one's is Odin's Revenge.  It's 180 miles of Nebraska dirt in one day.  I'll be thrilled if I can do half that.  Anyhow, entry is on the 14th of February   You mail in a post card with your specs for the race.  The first 100 are chosen for the race.  So while cutting out my postcard sized hunk of watercolor paper to make my postcard, I came up with the idea of making a few more.  Then it came to me.  Alphabet bikes.  Bikes that can be described in two letters.  I had nine postcards so they came out like this.....

TT - Time Trial
RD - Road
CX - Cyclocross
XC - Cross Country
AM - All Mountain
DH - Downhill
OT - Observed Trials
SS - Single Speed
GG - Gravel Grinder

I know there's a ton more but I had nine cards so I stopped there.  So far there turning out well.  Time will tell.

Coffee Wheels #16 - Ibis Szazbo

Full strength version is finally done.  Kicked it out last night during our so called blizzard.

If you'd like to own one of your very own have a look at my Society6 web page.
