H bar G...

I finally escaped the confines of the shop and/or the office job for a few hours of riding the only bike I currently have at my house. Did a lil' solo spinning and such at the local party zone, a.k.a. H bar G ranch. 

Atop the initial climb, just to get to the singletrack. It's like 25,000* vertical feet of gain just to get here.
The Bike. The Pirate.
Going downhill fast. Too fast to keep up with those darn eggbeaters. Yes, fixie.
It's purdy here in middle Merka.Proud.

Crazy times folks, crazy. Not a lot of time for words. Not a lot of time period. I'm currently moving the Oddity Cycles shop into a shared space with Black Sheep Bikes. Lot's still to do, moving big machines this weekend and getting settled-in as soon as possible - as there are bikes to be built! Super stoked to be working with and around James Bleakley (Black Sheep's Founder). I feel a change in the wind...with steel and titanium bikes that come out of this shop being nothing less than the best of the best. I hope to keep the website updated better in the future as I phase into this new location - as I am also moving to a new house in Fort Collins, Co. where there is miles upon miles of singletrack in the backyard. Come visit, ride bikes, pound booze; whatever floats your boat. I'm game. Cheers!

Random Musings...

Every Tuesday that I can, I ride the TNR with the Redstone crew. Every week I get my a$$ handed to me. This is why I still ride with these fuckers - you can't learn shit or get better at anything unless you're getting worked like a minimum wage job. Love these guys, love this ride. I'm sore as phuk today.

I'm still trying to find the time to show off NAHBS photos and talk about that crap. Not happening today.

I did however build this chicken coop.
I could have been posting photos and stories that you really care about...but I like chickens.

What else...

Oh yeah - Moving the Oddity Cycles shop to Fort Collins, Colorado over the next few weeks. Going to be sharing space with Black Sheep Bikes. Yeah, THE Black Sheep - As in 'Bad A$$ Titanium Frames, Forks, Bars and Posts. Winning!

Also buying a house on Horsetooth Reservoir. Singletrack for miles right out of the backyard. Come ride bikes!

And here is my gravel rig for 2014 (at least until I have a minute to build my own frame). YOU should go and race/ride The Cedar Cross. Good stuff. Really good.
That is all I've got for now. Peace.
