My friends are all jerks

Who is going to cop to propping this up on top of (how apropos!) my rubber mallet?

Fun times at urgent care...

I managed to rub a metal shard (aluminum oxide is great as an abrasive - and great at abrading your cornea, too!) into my eye yesterday so this morning through early afternoon was spent at the urgent care getting it removed and lots of weird crap put in my eyes. Numb eyeballs are a funny feeling.

Regardless, for everyone whose email I replied to very late, my apologies. I'll get on it tomorrow, I promise.

Support Mohawk Matt's new clothing company

I am not normally a Kickstarter kinda person, but I have been friends with Matt for many years (CU cycling team, woot!) and I like his ideas for performance-casual cycling clothing.


Interested? Check it out and kick him a few bucks to support launching the company here.

I am always right.

Just ask my wife. Or Lane. He said, a year or two ago, that he wanted a fat fork for a dynamo hub with no brake mount. Because he's just a stud.

I said, "hold on, brakes can be nice to have. Paint, too."

But Lane held firm, and now he's got a fine patina of iron oxide (he's a NM boy so it will take about 100 years for the fork to really rust enough to matter) and a brake mount added by my NM framebuilder homey Chauncey. Plus the world's ugliest ziptie.

Tis the season for fatbikes!

Always bet on...white?

Spotted at Caribou

There are plenty of things I don't miss about Boulder (cough, NIMBYs, cough) but the BMA social events and rides aren't one of them.

Awkward double negative alert... I like BMA. The Caribou classic is neat. I don't remember whose bike this is, though. Thanks to Peter (not the owner) for snapping the picture.

5" travel dually with a dropper and TALAS... wracking my brain...whose bike are you?

Working on JJ and Peter

Some of the parts I need are here, others are not, but I made what progress I could and now I'm going to work on a couple of fat forks... apparently it snowed in CO last night, winter is coming!

Lots of standover


Sleeve is for the rocker pivot, not joined up yet/positioned

Machining stainless sucks

Custom swingarm/chainstay assembly. Yep, that means you could do FS 29+ or fattie...

Hurricane in...Hurricane?

Actually Nevada, but close enough.  Basically everything in UT that isn't coming from the east coast comes up I-15.

I get a lot of stuff shipped up I-15. Like, say, the box of downtubes I need for JJ's frame (and Peter's...)

Doh. Gonna be a little delay...
