Roll that stone...

Still here folks. I'm trying to find the time to get SSP back up and running at full tilt. Life often gets in the way, but hell if I'm gonna quit. As you know, possibly, I build bikes. Here are a few images to hold you over until I have a real story to tell...or rather the time to make it interesting...

It's that time...

It's time I started writing again. Actually, it's way phugging past that time. 

I've been riding my bike quite a bit, now that the Colorado relocation has settled-in and business is starting to flow at The Shop. This week I've been in the saddle about 14 hours. Not bad for a fella that refuses to train. The 29+ has been delivering hella pleasure and good times. The trails out-the-door at the new lair are not to be missed; at least 40 miles of singletrack bliss awaits you in every direction, from flow to hike-a-bike bullshit that turns boys into men. 

I'm still hitting the TNR's with the Redstone crew. Always a flipping good time, always hard as fuck riding into the night. Oscar Blues and REEB represent. Dave represents. I try and keep up.

Thursday Night Lights is another regular ride I've been able to make happen. Night ride with the fine folks at Moonmen and Black Sheep, typically. Many beers are tossed back as morning nears and miles are lost to the sound of rubber to dirt.

Otherwise it's business as usual; living the dream riding and building handmade bicycles in the mountains. You need to come visit. Yeah, do that. Lets ride some shit.

I leave you with this image of what racing singlespeeds, at least to a handful of us in-the-know, is all about. Cheers

I'm The Ass...

I love it when some random phucker tries to one-up me on my own shit. Here's an email I received yesterday from a fellow, kindly explaining how my craigslist add for this used bike I'm selling could 'get more interest'. Read from the bottom up...

Here's the bike and the aforementioned Manitou Tower fork. I guess it would be better for the post-mounts to be on the front, right Mr. Todd? A good lesson in Shut-The-Fuck-Up

That's all for today. No more rants (until next time). I'll get some bike porn up on this blog soon enough. I've been riding my dick off lately. I guess you should know about it. Here's a teaser during a ride at the new lair with Mancub & The Manimal.
