A team the likes you have never seen. Magically as if some force greater than all of us trained on central Austin and summoned all those who suffer to 1213 A W. 5th street. The one thing you will find that all A/R racers share is an immense sense of self-realization. YES! we always output: extreme; but that will never interfere with our ability to empathize, relate, bare or depict.
If you are one of us, you'll know. You will find us. Then you will assimilate us. Worry not, even though you just boarded the fastest roller-coaster in the amusement park. You waited in the blazing Texas sun for 3 hours, winding through dank serpentine rope-lines looking at sun-bleached tatoos, sweat-stained tanktops and turkey legs. Well it's time to buckle up and secure all loose objects. Austinbikes/Revenant is not responsible for lost articles.

CMFE was not so much born as he took form out of the early morning mist on a temperate southern California day in May 1971. If you believe the lore, and you should because not believing the lore is for crybabies and losers, CMFE has been chased by bears, climbed mountains on multiple continents,...more
In case you care to read more than his bio on the "About Us" page, here are a few more tidbits about this modern day renaissance man. Sol likes oranges, his fab-5-freddy family, cutting loose, cutting up, and all his buddies (many featured on this very webpage). He doesn't have any time for...more
Grew up in Bloomington In and went to Indiana University but never got to race in the Little 500 so I quit and went on the road with a rock band. 15 years later I went back to school at Ohio State and graduated in 1990 with a business degree and immediately continued with my music career and...more
A low sullen moan escapes his throat as he mashes on the pedals. In a sea of lycra clad bodies he alone stands out, thick-shouldered and massive-thighed he clutches the handlebars with his ham-sized fists and attempts to transfer all of his power through the carbon fiber frame. As the skinny...more

I love cycling. I tried my hand at BMX racing in high school because I dated a dude who airbrushed (yup, I really said that) helmets. I couldn't balance on the gate and I underestimated the "air potential" on the first jump. I think they wanted to cut my pants off because my knee was swollen so...more
