New Cadence gear out in time for the holidays...
Here's an item from the collection especially for Mark.

Most importantly, I'm going to be a father of a little bike riding dude in about 4 months. Most of you already knew this but just in case you didn't...
Here's an ultrasound of my Milk Man just kicking it. Don't feel obligated to sit thru all 12 min.

Lastly and leastly, this will be my new post Christmas whip. I know a chrome fork and carbon seatpost make for an odd couple but you gotta play the hand you're dealt.

Rode w/ Aaron and Seth from Boston today. It was Slipperier when wet than New Jersey but fun was had none the less.

Stay what you gwar!

Some red handed slight of hand (sorry couldn't wait)

Sam Allgood - bro. from Sam Allgood on Vimeo.

So I've been watching allgood for a while. He's really young and progressing incredibly fast. Haven't heard Tim Kasher's voice in a long time.

Tonight's going to suck...

5000 more

So things have been slow over here. Kinda like me in an alleycat. When we pass 5k hits on the site be ready for a meggapost! Heck Mark might even put up a new header and post an update.

Thanks to...

Peter/Faith, I was pretty shocked when Mark told me how you were behind us. The shoes were a great prize and nothing could have been more appropriate.

, The work you two did on the bag was some of the best I have ever seen. I know that you guys spent a lot of hours getting that thing to look as perfect as it did. It's in good well appreciating hands. Terry your filming editing is getting better and better. Thanks for putting the time in to documenting everything.

, Thanks for the three nickle bag hook up. Those beans will be pressed into highly regulated traffic MASHing.

Great of you guys to throw in a great prize for us. Alan Farton is going to love sticking his nose in the latest issues of Urban Velo.

Your crew really shined. Taking home the best two prizes we had! We couldn't have played an ounce of polo w/o you bringing out the sets. I'm going to wear the Track-O-Bama shirt to the polls in the morning and we'll see what happens. The lights were a plus. You guys make great judges and even better riders. Come back soon Vic and let me pedal that Makino build around. It was great meeting you guys.

Urban Standard
I think that I'm going to let my loyalty speak for itself. Tom & Eric, I'll see you Saturday for breakfast, lunch & dinner if I miss seeing you Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday morning. You guys have done a great thing and are a gleaming example of how to do "downtown" correctly. Keep it up Poland!

Aaron/Lane Woodworking
Aaron, you built a heck of a ramp. Sorry I wasn't there to build it with you. I know you had a heck of a week. Congrats on the long skid and thanks for getting my feet wet with this craziness!

Lastly I have to say how horrible I feel about the insane spill Matt took during long skids. He's got a broken arm, 2 monster raspberries and went into the thing with a near 2nd degree burn from a grease fire. Feel better soon Matt! You got some tricks up your sleeve that this town needs to see.

Pictures of the event are here and here. Thanks Alan, Elisa & Jennifer for those.
