    Had some welding done on frame today. I really like the lines, it kinda flows. It will have smaller tubing connecting to the original cantilever area following the top bar all the way back to make the seat stays. This one will have fenders and a rack as well as an knee action springer. It will...

    R.I.P Dad

    Thanks to all of you for the thoughts and prayers.I think his passing is fairly easy to accept, he is no longer in pain and is in a much better place.

    TOUR de FAT 2010- Make your plans now.

    I have been to four of them, Tempe 3 times and San Diego 1. IMHO, Tempe TDF has outgrown itself. While the bike ride/parade is still great it is mostly a day of standing in huge lines. This year I may just do the parade and then go on a pub peddle instead. The San Diego TDF was the best. San...
