MKE painted

Pretty funny that this frame is the exact same colors as Prolly's blog. The man knows what he likes I guess. Here's some other colors. (Pake)

It's really too bad that MKE went ahead and put the brake bosses on these guys. Who rides brakes?

on a side note, if your bars almost spin, then this jewel could push you over the edge.

I just ate the best peanut butter sandwich...

Then I watched this video and loved it.

more for me to love and you to hate

MKE's got pictures of their FGFS frame out. Pictured is a proto built for Prolly to test.

One interesting thing is that on the braked version, the cable is run through the steer tube. This allows the front wheel to rotate 360 w/ a brake. In the 80's it took a gyro or a ACS rotor (thanks Leo) to achieve the same thing. Crazy it could be that simple...

I'm sure this has been done elsewhere previously but this is the first time I've noticed it.

With a little love and tenderness

Nice little sponsor list there. Guess I'll have to read about this one. I'd love to be around for it but I'll be listening to Barry White eating grapes in a hot tub somewhere w/ my better 3/8's. If you can make it to this or the after event I'm certain it won't disappoint.

And I think I was talking to Matty about how rad it'd be to build this wheel up.

Sleepless in San Fransisco

Doesn't look like it's going to be all that bad...

Medicine for Melancholy

It's got a Saturday Looks Good to Me song playing in the trailer and it's a Strike Anywhere production...

American Justice American dream
is this what ' the other half ' means
half of our lives dissolved in fear
half of our rights they disappear
is our apathy so corrosive
where does the cycle start
hear the sirens screaming out in the distance
hold your family close to your heart

well dangit now I goatta do it...

Late in the game

So we're the last blog to pick this up but it's too exciting to skip.

Pictures of Charges new FGFS frameset have hit every blog from here to Hong Kong. Tom and Ted have no doubt influenced some of the geometry choices. The fork looks incredibly stout. The fork is notched and the drops are inserted in the tubing. Unicrown w/ very thick drops. Charge always does a clean job with their graphics as well. Placement color and design are best in the industry I'd say. Way better than Volume's playboy Scott Staph style graphics...

Had a blast riding w/ Aaron the last couple days. Sprints by Clay Sunday night going to be fun.
