new look

a quick post before i head off to the shop. rainy and warm lately. riding a little but hard to motivate to leave the gravitational pull of hot tea and a big bowl of squash soup. even the 20 minute ride to the shop in the rain is epic some days. once there, i don’t mind working into the night listening to everything from dee-lite to metallica to bob dylan to nina simone. i heart the shuffle. the motivational randomizer makes the hours of filing, brazing and sanding seem to fly by.

been thinking a lot about the effect of tire size on bicycle trial geometry lately and excited about a couple rando bikes along with a few bikes that i am hoping to have all ready by the show in feb.

have a wonderful day.

    There are a few articles in various Bicycle Quarterly issues about tire size to trail and fork rake, they are super interesting. If you want I could try to scan them and forward them to you or copy and send them your way. That is if you have not seen them yet.
