Riding dirty

The first rain ride of the Fall is usually dirty with all the grime, oil, grit and dirt built up from the summer bubbling across the road. This year, because it’s already rained so much, the grime was much less after the ride.

That was great, but I think this much early Fall rain means it’s going to be a very wet winter.

New uses for old parts

Treehugger | Bike Lamps from Treeline Designs

Treehugger offers up Treeline Designs, which offers lamps built around suspension forks.

Among the coolest features are the way the lights get activated: On some, you flip the canti brake to turn the lamp on or off, and on others you do it by compressing the fork itself.

If you’ve got a sentimental attachment to an old unused RockShox Judy, this is the perfect way to keep it around and drive your spouse crazy at the same time. Just tell her it’s a major award.

Xtracycle Ride, Party and Concert

Kipchoge Spencer of the Ginger Ninjas (and Xtracycle fame) is in town playing his guitar and Aaron is promoting a bike ride for the occasion. On Friday November 10th, 2006 at 6 PM depart from Aaron’s Bicycle Repair and ride to Westlake Plaza to meet more riders. Heavy rain plan is to meet at the Bat Cave. Check the discussion on the .83 forum for more details.

A Better Hugger

For the past few days, we’ve been quietly working in the background to make Bike Hugger lighter, faster, and an all around better hugger (what cyclist wouldn’t want to be lighter and faster!)

We’ve also got more huggers coming and we’ll post on that soon.

Another season begins

Today, in the pouring rain, the 2007 racing season begins. I’ll ride the south end of the lake with the Wines of Washington team for about a 3 hour ride. On Sunday, another 3 to 4 hours with Mike Rogers.

This year is already promising with more of the older guys racing masters and I’m upping the training ante with a Tacx Cosmos. I’ll blog more about that once I’ve spent some painful, sweaty time on it.
