Road Block!

Big Tree!!
First day commute to a new job. Bike shop up in Chestnut Hill. A healthy 10 miles, 90% of it on biking trails; isolated from scary motorists.

New Post Time

I know I know, its been a while.  Without a workshop I have very little photo content.  Here's a dump of the past couple weeks...

moped wheel

rainy days mean carry more stuff

heavy cross check as outfitted for my daily ride- carradice, tools, lock.

Broken spoke while truing my rear wheel.  Spokes rarely break any where but the extreme ends so this is weird!  About 7 or so years ago I slipped on ice while walking my bike, and my rear wheel broke my fall, and I broke my wheel! I've been nursing the wheel along over the years but I think it is finally time i consider replacing it.

Two racks on a rack on their way to being painted!

Here's a rack I made for the friend that will be doing the painting.  This is the first time I have seen this one post paint.  Totally sick racing stripe and painted cut outs on the lug, I love it!
