A look back at one of the most difficult years any of us have had to endure. What made it special and what made it great?
A rundown of the bike I built and the parts that are on it. This chariot carried me across America and back, see what makes it run!
My bike shop takes up a small amount of room in the corner of my garage. This is to facilitate all the other things I do there. Whether it's making beer, entertaining guests, or wrenching on bikes, I need space to get that stuff done.
It's an interesting time. With all that is happening in the world, we need to be careful and act wisely when it comes to how much time we spend with others outdoors.
As many are painfully aware, I have been off the bike (and off the computer) for a bit more than a month due to an injury sustained on the bike. This much relaxation and healing is definitely a challenge. How have I filled the days?
The world of trainers is complicated and diverse. From old-fashioned “exercycles” to wind-trainers to modern magnetic-resistance “indoor bikes” (i.e.; Peleton bikes), they all have advantages depending on whether you are looking for performance, quiet, or price.
To celebrate my history as a super nerd, and to celebrate the opening of the very last film in the “Skywalker Saga”, I thought I would post a little bit of history regarding my adventures in line for the Star Wars prequels over 20 years ago.
As a person who grew up loving my bike(s), I have a desire to share with the younger generation all of the wonder and fun that riding has to offer. To that end, I try to donate one bike every year to a kid around the holidays. It’s easy, it’s not too expensive, and it is an great way to expose any community not just to bike building but also local charitable organizations.
