The effort to break the (Howies) commuting world record

One of the fellers at Howies is trying to set a new personal record for his half-hour bike commute. First, he attempted the feat with a LeMonde fixie. Then he switched to a fully geared freewheel. Now he's begging Trek to loan him a TT bike.

Can he do it?

We certainly hope he can, and we'd love to see more of this kind of low-level corporate sponsorship for mundane but highly personal achievements.
