Good morning Metro Byfield! The storm has passed & its going to be a good day.
It has been a while since I mentioned the Univega here. I finished building it in the spring with a new red tape job on the handlebars. It looked great. And it didn't fit me. I tried riding it a few times, and I discovered that I just don't fit dropped handlebars anymore. I felt… Continue reading The Univega returns

It’s also 55° and was the perfect day for a bike ride to work. I’m finding that the ~1/2 hour of… Continue reading It’s been a week

I didn't want a dog, but Mrs Mack505 talked me into one back in 2007. Cricket was a rescue from a high-kill… Continue reading Cricket
