things that may be of interest to you, my friend

Vintage Rally - I love how the spectators move out of the way just in time - just like in the climbing stages of road races....but unlike in bike racing, you probably won't survive if your bag get caught on a passing racer.

Our friend Abbey gets a new dress and there's a new Ranger in town.

Some bikes that we like as of late...
Yeah - the 2010 S-Works Stumpjumper is not cheap - but it looks to be quite versatile. It's 30 speed!!! and 22 - 24 lbs depending on size. 5.5" in front and in rear.
This Independent Fabrications SSR is made of Reynolds 953 steel tubing - which is stronger, lighter, and stiffer than titanium...and get this - it's stainless. Yep - the chrome is shining just like an icicle as you ride around town on your IF bicycle. A bike this sweet might make me want to race on the road again.
In a word - VERSATILE. The Swobo Crosby is a built up as a single speed cross bike (read - great commuter), but also has mounts for disc brakes, cable stops if you want to run gears....and a cool SRAM hub that can be switched from freewheel to fix with the flip of a switch (or turn or a screw or something like that). And it has orange rims and blue is my favorite color. And the seat has a bottle opener on it for when you want to stop for a mid-ride Yoo-Hoo.

So there you have it. the only thing missing in this blog about beer, bikes, and big wheesl are the big wheels. That's because they are currently hibernating...
