    What have you been riding lately?

    Apology if I’ve posted this before. Just rode it to pick up my car. Bought new in 1989. Raced til 1993. This it’s it’s third iteration. Shimano Tourney 3x7 speed brifters work great.

    1931 Claud Butler track bike

    it's amazing how contemporary this bike still looks. You could hang out with hipsters on their fixes downtown, and at first, maybe no one would notice.

    Rant: why I have trouble supporting the LBS

    there was a shop near me that allowed me to go in the back and up into the attic through a wood panel that had to be pushed up and out of the way from a ladder for old cruiser parts. I heard they were recently acquired by a fancy shop that is acquiring all of the shops in central CT. I bet...

    Pepto-Bismol anyone?

    haha, this is funny. I have a 5 yr old daughter now, and we avoided the pink walls thing by painting them white and letting her pick any temp decals she wanted. She chose a gigantic rainbow sticker. Seriously, it's like 10' long. Fun.

My touring bike with front and rear racks, pedals, blinkies, fenders, spare spokes, bottle cages, tool bag and a couple aftermarket attachment points is 32 lbs. My Specialized CruX, which I use as a gravel bike and pit bike for cross races...

    It's shocking that that Redwood is actually in stock. These days it's difficult to find any available bikes. I'm looking forward to your review of it. It's tempting.

    Knife buildoff challenge discussion

    I'm not going to complete mine in time. I won't have the wood I want for the handle for another month or so. I'm getting it from a friend who lives in the next state. Probably won't see him until Memorial Day-ish when we go cycle camping.
