Out on a ride, I heard Cipo is signing with Rock and the Pants King, but then again maybe not. During Interbike, I stood with others at Rock’s Lamborghini display and wondered, “what does this have to do with bikes?” Later, I bumped into Frankie Andreu (I did notice he was wearing some really tight pants), talked with him about it, and figured out it was this guy with money throwing it around the sport. I didn’t meet Ball, but did hear all of his primes during the Interbike crit and saw his team pull up in Escalades. Not my thing, but hey he could’ve thrown his money at stripper poles and hip-hop culture.
Schooner Exact is “a local, small batch microbrewery focused on quality, handcrafted ales,” and last year brewed up Bike Hugger Brown for us. Good stuff.
Other blogs have noticed and Bike Hugger will be there
From the what’s old is new department, I bet when the Parasailers were first marketing their thrill rides to tourists, it was all the newest thing.
Ah, but back in the day of safety bikes, Mr. Kabrich was the Bike Chute Aeronaut. I wonder if he chatted up the ladies with talk about “the draft” and “being aero.”

Seattle’s had it’s fare share of problems with bike on buses lately, but this article makes it clear it’s not all Metro’s fault. Apparently almost 900 people a year forget their bikes in bus racks. Kent Peterson to the rescue – if you left yours on, he (or some other nice person) can help you get it back at Bikestation. Frankly, it’s not clear to me what gets left behind more often, the bike or the rider.
