Hi, welcome back! So, back on May 1st, 2021 we said farewell to our dear and beloved 1995 Jeep Cherokee, Ol’ Blue.

Hi! Welcome back and thanks for returning!

Bikes and bike people. Two of my favorite things. That, and hand-built, lugged, steel frames….but that’s another post all together. This wonderful bicycle industry that I am fortunate enough to work in, is small. It’s very small. Especially when compared to other industries. Everybody seems to know everyone else. Let me tell you a […]Read More Some of the Best People I Know Pedaled into My Life…

The crash site is always what people remember. The wreck is an ugly scene, but no one can stop staring. Everybody is trying but can’t bring themselves to look away.
