Tech Tuesday: Keeping Your Bike Out of the Shop

This is the time of year that all you want to do is ride your bike, not take it in for maintenance. One of my favorite things I would tell good clients was to ride the bike to the shop for a quick check over. Make it part of a monthly or quarterly event. As long as there isn’t anything rattling or falling off you’ll be…

Unplugged for a Week

Have no fear, I’m still kicking. I took a week off from the blog and riding my bike to spend time with family and work on some other projects. We all need a break sometimes. Mentally, physically and emotionally. This past week was the physical part. Putting efforts into riding roller coasters, working on excel spreadsheets of bike dealer stats and getting my head on…

Charlotte Cross City Trail

Charlotte Cross City Trail

A new project is in the works within my beloved Charlotte North Carolina. A 26 mile trail that would connect the northeast sector to the southeast. Connecting major colleges to major downtown city and allowing many communities to be connected without the need of a motor vehicle. It is exciting to hear that Charlotte has even thought outside of the box as far to think of…

Viva La Bicicleta

Philosophy of Viva La Bicicleta  Simple: get everyone out on a bike and riding. Viva encourages everyone to feel the freedom one gets from riding a bicycle. You see more of your surroundings, feel the wind in your hair (under your helmet!), and get your blood pumping from being active. We then feel good about ourselves. Tshirts and Posters available. My favorite is this awesome track poster!

They are *all* considered demo’s, so if you are in the southeast and want to try out one of my bikes let me know in the comments or drop me a line on the contact page. The newest bike in my fleet is a cyclocross…

Finding the White Line

When people ask me what time of rider I am normally say a mountain biker. It isn’t true though. I started out fascinated with road biking and racing, and happened to enjoy the adventure of mountain biking a lot over the past 5 years. Recently I picked up a Foundry Auger B1 as a rep sample. Built as a cyclocross bike I took the knobs…

Tree Shaker 8 Hour MTB Race

Next Race on the Calendar: Tree Shaker 8 Hour

As I look back at this spring and my two “A” races it makes me rather frustrated that both of those races ended in tears. Both gave me motivation after looking through the dark very, very hard! Warrior Creek 6 Hour ended with me so wrecked from my crank seizing up and having to walk/struggle. Burn 24 Hour ended with me wrecking myself out 9.5 hours…
