Time to get your fix?

Today I decided to sell my fixed gear Raleigh Grand Prix. It is a 58cm I think. I can measure more accurately if you need me to. Works perfectly. New tires. Not very light but she rolls pretty fast. You can put a bmx style freewheel on it if you need that.

29er camp.

Sort of a late post by why not post it anyways. I went out riding with a bunch of cool folks to the camp last Saturaday. Had the luxury of riding a pals Raleigh XXIX single speed. What a great time I had. That bike just rolls so easily over downed trees & other sketchy terrain. Better than any of my 26ers. As my little Ella would say, "Me rikey dat bike, it mine!" Although the bike is not mine, I do rikey it. I did get a couple of pics before having to give the bike back. They pics are not from the camp but rather my backyard.

Thanks again G-Ted for the loaner bike. I really enjoyed it. Gave me that single speed respect again that I almost lost.

Ever have shin burger?

Ever have shin burger? I have and I don't much like it. I spent a little time at the Dirt N the House tonight. I took the Haro out for a spin and she bit me. Guess I need to consider going clipless. If you haven't ever been to the House you need to check it out. It's twice as long this year and loads of fun. You don't even have to leave to ground. After sprinting around once you'll be feeling the burn man!

Better get going now......I need to get my leg cleaned up. Ouch!!

the time has come......

Today starts my new project. Besides the obvious which is cleaning out my shop. What a mess! The project is to rebuild the "Congdondale." I will be stripping off all the old parts and putting on full Ultegra. Used Ultegra of course. Why buy new when used will do. I have not decided yet if I should repaint first. I have the painting skills but there is no way I can decide what color. Maybe you can help me out with that. Send me a note with your thoughts. Thanks.

Peace out.

I sure missed out.

I could have been riding the Salsa El Maricahi on Saturday but instead I went shopping out of town with my girls. Still had a nice time though.
Please excuse my shabby 5 minute photoshop work on this.

Peace out.
