Conversation in a local los alamos coffee shop last month:
Student (noticing my spd shoes): what kind of bike do
Me (quickly sizing up the skinny hipster student): Uh, I am on my fixie today
Student: Cool! I just got a fixie!
Me: Does it have neon green deepV rims?
Student: No, orange!
All of this is an excuse to link over to bike snob nyc who dissects the most egregious examples of hipster fixies. I think more bikes is good bikes, but top tube pads? Come on...
Anyhow, good stuff over there.
I will attempt to redesign the blog soonish, but there are a few blogs I have been enjoying lately, so as a way of book marking them for later, check out the following if you have not before:
Rick Hunter framebuilder/tall/fast guy in norcal.
Belgian knee warmers pro cycling commentary
Curt Goodrich frame builder up there in minesota
Ira Ryan frame builder up there in portland.
Flahute has had some nice doping coverage of late.
Stay out of Trees or bike iowa, biking in iowa but not in the trees.
I went back to the mountain, part one.
