Rode a Darkling Rain to the Feed Hill

Rode Through a Darling Rain

It was a darkling rain I rode through, gloomier with each storm cell and mile.

Feed the Goats

Feed Hill

Then a hill I’ve climbed a thousand times now has a goat attraction. Bringing spare change next time.

Rapha wool for balmier days in Seattle

Remarkably, despite the darkling rain, no soak through today wearing Rapha kit like this club jersey and rain jacket.

Doing Something

Calipers

With calipers

As it was explained to me

Doing research. A scientist’s foundation is research…even if you’re a mad scientist. I will find a way to run an XX1 10-42t 11-sp cassette with a road lever. 

Epic Beef Bar Prank

Epic Beef Bar


Someone at Hugga HQ must’ve overheard me talking about Issue 11 of our Magazine and the April Fools theme, ‘cause in the bar drawer was this beef-flavored one. I guess the plan was during a sun break, I’d just grab a bar and go, in a hurry before it squalled again. Then the prankster imagined the horrible reaction of me tearing open a Beef Habanero Cherry Bar and taking a bite. That’s like chocolate-flavored anything on an hot day or that one time Clif released premixed drinks that tasted like a locker room smells.

Friction Drilling

This is how they make the holes in Mavic Ksyrium SL rims and other similar rims where the nipples thread directly into the rim. It’s called friction drilling. Rather than having a metal bit that bites into the work piece and removes material in its path, friction drilling uses a fast-spinning conical bit that is pressed hard to the piece. The friction heats the material which flows out of the way of the bit. The friction drill bit must be made of a heat resistant material like cemented carbide (I mean, all good drill bits are made of heat resistant material, but this is way beyond cobalt steel). The advantage is that the process creates a hole with material left around the circumference; then that material can be tapped with threads for the spoke nipple.

Obliteride 2014: Riding with Jim


The Obliteride is back for 2014, with new, improved routes and we’re planning on riding along again. Last year it was a good time and I observed

Obliteride is a local story: from the routes, people, and monies raised for the Hutch. The orange is also not yellow. The focus on the experience was appreciated by all the riders we talked to and rode with; especially, the Franti concert I captured with Glass.

The Franti concert was a highlight for sure and all the dedicated cyclists I met. This August 8-10 I want to ride with Dr. Jim Olson, who’s a Fred Hutch researcher and developing ways to treat cancers with nature – scorpions, sunflowers and violets. Hope to see Jim on the 150 mile route. I heard he’s an avid cyclist. See his Tedx talk.
