picked up my new road bike yesterday on my b-day. thanks to eric down @ the MWC for building it up perfectly. need a cheap road frame that rides great? check out the pacer. ya it's a bit on the hefty side but i don't road race anymore and i'm not one of those fanatics who count grams and believe everything they read in the hyped ads in the bicycling mags. i just needed a solid frame, and i didn't have alot of cash, so i went basic. it's the 'working man's road bike if you will. see you out on the road. la bici te salvara!

who the hell knows what that means.. (i don't speak swedish). above is my friend freddie sandström, from sweden. he is a photographer who i met here in lincoln in the summer of '04, down at the monkey wrench shop. he was spending a few months in the states to take photos and see friends. he stopped in the shop asking about fixed gears, and well we still keep in touch. anyway... it appears he's becoming one badass fixed gear rider. here are some pics of a 6 hour SS/Fixie race he participated in the other weekend, in downtown Stockholm. looks like a good time was had by all. yo freddie, i hope to visit you mofos someday, and i'll bring my bike!
