Hey everybody! Hope you all are having a great first part of 2017. I know I am! I thought maybe as a little goal for this new year, I would try to get a post done every month…how does that sound? I mean, don’t hold me to it but I will try. OK, the pressure […]Read More Is It Always About the Bike? (#2)
I’m all verklempt. Well, here we are. The first blog post of the new year. Exciting! And whoa, what a shit show of a year 2016 ended up being. I mean, seriously! But I won’t get in to that right now…or ever, not here at least. This is a place to discuss bicycles…the thoughts, memories, […]Read More Let’s Talk Coffee, Bikes and Slowing Down…No Big Whoop.
Hi, again. So I did it. I kinda, well…not really kinda, I just did it, OK? I gave in to a market trend. I was going to say that it’s not really a trend to kind of save me from eating crow, but it really is. Although, in my defense, I think it has way […]Read More 29″ + 3.0″ = fun²
Well, here we are again with another blog post. I really should be doing this way more often. Just sayin’. Plus I like it…it’s fun. OK, cue one of the following tunes…Back in The Saddle (Areosmith), Back in Black (AC/DC) or Back in The USSR (The Beatles)…I’m sure there are more songs with this theme, […]Read More Well, Hello My Friends…
I don’t “hate”. At least I try not to use that word very much. I used to use it a lot in varying ways. But I was a bit angrier back in the day. Now, “dis-like”?… yeah, I do that quite a bit. So much so, that some people may think that I oppose popular […]Read More The Contrarian…
No, not always. Shit happens in your life, sometimes unrelated to the bicycle. I know we (at least I) try to have as much as possible in my life relate to or revolve around the bike. Crap gets in the way…but still, even when it isn’t about the bike, I am thinking about the bike and […]Read More Is It Always About The Bike?
Wow! My last post huh? Boy, it really ruffled some feathers. I was going to write a softer, more apologetic post addressing what was written in the last post. But you know what? I’m not going to. It was just my opinion people. It’s not etched in stone. And I wasn’t trying to be an […]Read More Wanderlust
Hi all. Miss me? I know I haven’t posted in awhile. I’m kinda sorry about that, but mostly not. Anyway, the reason I haven’t written in awhile is because I haven’t really been inspired to. I mean I’ve been riding and all but nothing has sparked the juices, if you know what I mean. OK, […]Read More So, You Think You’re a Cyclist?
I am not much of a weight weenie. That is to say, that when buying gear for my bicycles, weight is not a major player in the decision making process. It used to be, but it’s not anymore. I never really counted, or obsessed over grams or ounces, but if I could afford (which I […]Read More Gear
Hey folks, I have a confession to make. I use Strava. Ok, ok, take it easy…put the pitchforks away and call off your dogs. I know I have, in the past, talked a good amount of shit on the typical Strava user. And as a self-proclaimed “retro grouch” it goes against my old school ways […]Read More All I Want to Do
