Space Needle Around the Corner


Where I train in West Seattle, the Space Needle is always just around the corner. It’s in the triangle of the frame, middle left and this bike is the Parlee CX H (for Hugga) that I’ve got in on test. It’s a custom carbon cross bike that weighs 15 pounds and I’m racing it like I was a Belgian with dangling gold chains. Much more to it than that, but that’s a good start.

Joey’s OK! Tees


Thanks for you interested and pre-orders, but we decided to not run the Ts. Joey’s still ok, though!


Spent the afternoon with these two American Apparel models. The dude hadn’t ridden a bike in years and she refused to put pants on, but the tee artwork, survey, photoshoot (uhm ‘shopped), is done. The tees are ready for pre-orders today.

Pre-Order a Joey’s OK! Tee

The tees are American Apparel, Organic cotton in Natural with Kelly green stitching and a 2-color screen print of the artwork. They cost $28.00 + $5.00 for shipping. They tees are made in LA and screened right here in Seattle. They’ll ship in about 2 weeks, after the orders come in, with a free barrier sticker based on the artwork. Check sizing on American Apparel’s site.

Joey’s OK! Art

The artwork was hand-drawn and designed by Scott Benish. It’s based on Jaxon Suttlemyre’s photo. In collaboration with Cyclocoss Magazine, we’re giving the art away.

Maybe there’s a Joey’s NOT OK! Halloween character that wrecks havoc in a race? Who knows and whatever you want to do, have fun with it. It’s been fun for us and Joey. The video is playing on Dutch talk shows now.

Also, Joey’s gonna get paid for the Tees and will save his royalties for a new road bike or a waterbed.

Joey’s Package

Joey's OK! Tee Artwork

Tee artwork by Scott Benish and in collaboration with Cyclocross Magazine

Hey we’re working on Joey’s Package: a Tee (shown above), Sticker, and Downloadable Artwork and have a few questions for you. The total cost of the package is $28.00 and before we fire off the printer and fill our warehouse with Joey scwhag, we want to know what you want.

We’ll print that artwork on an organic American Apparel tee in natural with kelly green stitching. The sticker is sized to slap onto the barriers at your next Cross race and the artwork is free.

And we heard this last night Retweet

joeysok made it on Keith olbermann on current tv tonight

I knew when Joey flew over my head that was spectacular, but not so much that it’d blow up like this. That’s me coming to his aid in the video. I did whisper in his ear, while he writhed around in Pain, dude! But didn’t say, “ignore the pain, INTERNET FAME!”


Thanks for answering the questions, even you jokesters, and the tees are available to order now.

Logan’s Dangling Gold Chains look Belgian

Totally Pro Logan Owen Won Today

The gold makes you go faster

I showed up for the Seattle Cyclocross race at Marymoor just after Logan Owen won the Elite mens race. Logan is signed with Redline through the 2013 Worlds and has one more year as a junior. As a Neo Pro, Bro’s got the dangling gold chains, looking Belgian, and fast. Herw he is talking with me on video. Note a Seattle Squall started right as I turned the camera on. Sorry about the wind noise.

Also seen in the video is Kari, another Redline Pro, with their new carbon bike and a look at the “absolutely no shudder” fork.

Also watch for A-Class’ new carbon wheels in the video.

Green Shadow

It’s that time of year when the sun sets fast and you may catch a bike shadow in the trees like this.

Then the rains come. I think I’ve written about riding in the rain as much as Tom Robbins describes it in his books.

“It was autumn, the springtime of death. Rain spattered the rotting leaves, and a wild wind wailed.”

I was riding the Parlee CX H in Lincoln Park when I took the photo. For this Fall, I’ve got the Modal in fixed mode with race blades and a Hugga Buddy Flap, of course.
