My Girlfriend’s Bike..pt 4

bikebike%20before.jpg We just got my gf’s Kappa BMX frame(seen above before work was done) back from Sycip Designs. Jeremy Sycip fixed the headtube problem, added some braze-ons to steady the sissy bar, and then powdercoated the bike. Soon after opening the shipping box, I had the bike reassembled, but this time with all the best parts from my previous BMX bike. She rode the bike to work today, and I’ll post the pix tomorrow. The bike was cool before, but now it’s awe-inspiring!

Single in Shanghai

I’m taking the Modal with me to Shanghai in single-speed mode and looking forward to some very interesting riding. We’ve heard from the Shanghai Crash Test Dummy and Labici Bike Shop about riding with us. Googling Shanghai, I found

Besides the planned rides, like Beijing and Taipei, we’ll just get out into the city and ride.

Update

Dahon is supplying us with Mu XLs during our stay in Shanghai – so the Modal in single mode is staying home for this trip.

3 for a Swim and a Panther on the Burke

3_for_a_swim All in all it was a nice day for a ride – to windy, not sunny enough, but most importantly I was actually out riding which made it all OK. In the afternoon I got to load up the xtracycle with the kiddies to take Little J. down to the pool for his first swim. Big sister tagged along for the ride and the ride down was great. The ride back? Harder. 60 pounds of kids doesn’t get any lighter even if they’re cheering.

Earlier in the day I managed to put in a few miles through down town and on the Burke Gilman trail. I was almost home when I spotted this beauty and asked if I could take a photo. Unfortunately my phone-cam failed me and the photo you see is the best I could pull out of my editor.

Little Hugger

Bike Hugger Socks

My son is a bike hugger…at 18 months. The kid gets all excited and looks for approval whenever he spots a bike. “Daddy nGike!”. I’ve been getting killed at work of late, but on those nights where I have gotten home early enough to catch him awake, he runs up to me yelling “nGike!” while pointing at the logo on my BikeHugger kit. It’s pretty darn cute. This last week he got into the laundry and found his favorite pair of daddy’s socks and put them on himself, and proudly wore them around his room. Thanks to my wife for capturing that moment.

Do the Test

A friend of mine sent this link to me. Great British humour, clever advertising campaign.

And I totally fell for it: http://www.dothetest.co.uk/
