If this winter has taught me one thing, it’s that the Gilmore Girls is just as relevant today as it was when it came out. But if this winter has taught me another thing, it’s that my thermal bibs are not thermal enough. At least not where my bathing suit covers. Every post-ride shower lately has ended with me...

Toxic Assets

The best part about having an expensive hobby like cycling is that you never have to worry about what normal grownups call “investing” because you sink all of your money into plastic parts for your bicycle. Your portfolio is your quiver of bikes, and your broker is eBay. If you want to, you can diversify by buying...

Kruger’s Cross...

Kruger’s Crossing this year was all kinds of miserable weather, and I didn’t have the energy to ride a lap or two while hoping for something to go wrong with my bike allowing me to quit guilt free. So I just didn’t race. I may have gone on The Worst Road Ride Ever™ instead, and that road ride may have ended...

Photos from the early races. Nothing after the B/SS race.

TRP CX9 Mini V-brakes Nov16

TRP CX9 Mini V-brake...

I’ve never seen “Fiddler on the Roof,” but I heard the opening song Tradition one time when I was 14 because I wanted to make out with a girl named Gretchen who was really into musical theater.  I don’t know any of the words, but the tune gets stuck in my head every time someone buys something stupid...

2010 Cross Crusade #...

Barton Park has always been one of my favorite race venues. Probably because it’s usually near the end of the season, and the end of the season means I don’t have to spend Sunday nights hosing off my muddy shit any more. I haven’t done many Crusade races this year, but it appears that while I was away every...

2010 Cross Crusade B...

I think that this is mostly Category C 35+, Masters B 35+, Masters 50+, Masters 60+ , and Jrs 12+. Because I drove a bunch of people, and bunch of people had places they needed to be. Also, I lost my camera. It’s red and tiny and it was thrown gently course-side during the B/SS race somewhere between the start and the run...

1999 Schwinn Homegrown

Jesus, it’s November 5th and I’m finally getting over my election day hangover. It’s all a blur of whisky and anger, but I assume things went horribly, horribly wrong because Nancy Pilosi just handed over her gavel to to guy with a fake tan that could best be described as “Moltini”, and now she’s selling her no-longer-in-Powertap on the OBRA list. Californians can’t grow pot. Oregonians can’t spend their social security checks at the casino. Our prudish overlords have even decided that Washingtonians can’t buy booze at Costco. Goddammit, people! Kirkland brand Scotch is my birthright, and I’m tired of going to Nevada to get it! At least the people of Delaware can go back to...

Buyers Guide: Clincher Tires Oct29

Buyers Guide: Clinch...

It’s cyclocross season, and that means that internet forums are all abuzz with people making up scientific reasons why the tire they just bought is probably the best tire available. I’m sure there’s some actual science behind it all. The knobs and ridges and stuff. But fuck science. It’s never given us...

2010 Cross Crusade #...

Click for PIR photos Don’t get me wrong, that PIR race was super fun. But if I had it all to do over again, I would have spent my afternoon in bed eating a 5 pound bag of trick or treat sized Snickers bars and watching season two of Veronica Mars, while trying to figure out the Scooby Doo endings before they become...

A million photos from PIR, in reverse order, starting with the A’s and working backward to the C’s.
