Liza jumping rope to get her "weight-bearing" exercise for the day: 1400 jumps a day plus 1200-1500 mg of calcium keeps the bones strong. That's Tiger the squirrel hunter peeking in.
I added a stay to the front of my fender. There was some rattle and movement that was annoying. This will make this bike near perfect. Next up: generator lighting with an IQ Cyo. I love this bike. And I love these full Honjo fenders. I'd do a commercial.
RB-T. They don't make them like this any more. I took this out on the highdrive trails this morning. I'm always amazed at how this bike allows me to climb the really steep, rocky, and twisty switch-backs. I can't stay on the bike for most of those tight corners on my other bikes as consistently as I can on this one. For sure the knobbies help, but I've also got the weight distribution worked out on this bike better than I do on other bikes.
Arrowleaf Balsamroot are beginning to bloom on highdrive trails. That means Lupin are forthcoming. The trails are in perfect shape right now: firm and not too dusty.
The BAB booth at the Bloomsday trade show. Nicest one yet. With lots of room for maps. The key is getting a space at the end of a row.
This is a picture of a picture that was at some booth at the Bloomsday tradeshow. I don't remember the booth. But what's the deal with those bikes? The whole drive side is on the wrong side of these bikes. I know Sheldon did that with some bikes, but I've never seen that before in the wild, but there's two bikes in this pic with the chain, rings, derailleurs, etc are on the left side. At first I though it was a developing issue, where the negative was flipped. But that stuff is on the wrong side relative to the people. Have I lost it? Is it me? Is there some obvious explanation here that I'm oblivious to? What the hey?
Saw this Sugino with an integrated chaingaurd on a Kona up at Wheelsport on Thursday. You get all three chain rings + a chain guard on a servicable crankset. The chain guard just screws into a chainring with threaded holes in it. Nice.
