heading out

the weather was perfect. we got out of town just before dusk, and we arrived to eagle around 8:30. we had some good food and bevs at the one eyed dog, ya.. fun time had by all.

monica pulled up on an nice oldschool b-stone rb-2.

i'm diggin' keriann's setup (old schwinn cruiser fork converted to threadless, with a carbon spacer in the stack too...).

kim snapped one of me as the sun was about to go down.


the wabash trace trail is well maintained and is super smooth.

janna..aka 'da terminator'

janna's socks were a big hit all night.

suiting up, heading out...

the thursday night taco ride, up in iowa on the wabash trace trail. i've always heard about it and wanted to check it out. me and the gals (kim, nicol, and janna) did just that. once kim and nicol got their tights on, we headed out.

gorgeous monday

what a beautiful day it was, and ofcourse i had to go for a long ride to enjoy it. i headed up to Branched Oak lake for a few laps. on the way out on north 14th i was stuck behind a tractor for a bit, then i endured the stench of a bait shop to pick up a brew (ok, it was really gatorade), and finally... i saw quite a specimen of a horse on the far side of the lake before heading back. he was a beaut. as he stared me down he probably was wondering why i rode a horse that was much smaller than he was, and with two round hoops intead of legs and hooves.

nice headbadge

got to ride ep's custom steve potts 29er. more expensive than most used cars, but worth it. the headbadge is one of the sweetest in the biz.

spiked studs

met this dude named brook down at the shop today. he had this really cool schwinn cruiser he built up. he said the rust was just the right color he wanted so i don't think he plans on painting it. i'm guessing that everything probably cost him less than $30. i dig the upholstery on the saddle, and the spiked studs are a nice touch.

el color morado

while coming from downtown i ran into my good friend Eva (de España) as she commuted home. we chatted for awhile, enjoying the nice weather and trying to decide on a name for her steed. "violeta or morada?" she pondered. she decided on 'morada' (for the color purple).

fall is here

took this pic yesterday as i was riding downtown to grab a latte. right now the sun is setting directly west, and right into the eyes of drivers. so be careful out there.

mean green

later i stopped by the shop. donk was trying out his new mean green surly 1x1. it's bitchin. he has it set up fixed too.


i met this guy named Ivan Guthmiller from South Dakota. he likes building old style high-wheeler (or 'penny-farthing') bikes. he also showed me pictures of a few pre-1900 style cars he built, pretty cool work. email him if you'd like to see the stuff he's built (


the mercy rule man himself, johnny T, was there too. here he's discovered what must be an early merlin newsboy non-ti prototype frame. it felt heavy like a schwinn, but no... that merlin decal means it must be that early 'raw' titanium.. uh huh. if you believe that john and i have a car to sell you.


ran into julie and ben down at the meet. she found some oldschool cotton crotchet backed leather cycling gloves for real cheap.

swap meet

stopped by the annual swap meet this morning.

was down at the I&S salon getting my hair cut. the emo kids were out in force.

uh huh

yep, another nice evening.

n. 27th street

sun was setting, and i didn't have anything more than front and rear blinkyblink lights to keep pickups from running me over (some of those rural folk drive really fast on these dirt roads) so i started back without making it to Davey.

where are those mofos?

was going to catch up with the guys on the ride up to Davey, but hell if i know which way they took. i went the same way we went last time, and was only running 25-30min behind, but never caught them. oh well, still was a nice solo ride.
