Photography and Biking

For me,  the two go hand and hand. I love biking and I love taking pics. I just carry a nikon all weather point and shot (no external retracting lens). I've destroyed too many regular point and shoots. The dirt, getting dropped, taking pics with the camera in the snow. None of these help. 

Anyway, here's an article by Bicycling mag online. I will have to check out the cameras.

Just when I thought...

I thought I had all the tire sizes down...knew what I wanted. Then comes something new. Kind of. Now comes the 2.6 inch width!? I already ride 3.8-4.0 inch fat. I have 2.2 Conti Race Kings on my FS, and narrower on my other two bikes. 

Word is 2.6 will be less squirmy then the 2.8-3.0s. Can't be any worse than my fat! Wait it out? Or just buy?

CARBON!

Good read about carbon,  how it's made, the different strengths, counterfeit versus real, etc. I have yet to own anything carbon. Maybe one day...

Cranksgiving recap

Well I can't give you a recap because I was unable to attend this year.  But from what I've heard, it turned out to be another successful year of food donations. Prizes were to be had, pedals were pedaled, and food was given. And that right there is awesome. Here's a picture of the food I saw at Bike Masters last night.  Great job to all those that volunteered their time both on and off the bike.

Want!

I've been looking at 27.5+ bikes for a good two years now. While the options are finally starting to accumulate, the prices unfortunately are still up there.  It's new, it's the newest fad, the bike industry says you should be riding one.  Yeah Yeah Yeah.

Anyway, Salsa Fargo Rival 27.5+ is what I'm wanting.  I already have a fat bike and would like to start riding longer distances, maybe do some of these bike packing trips. This might fill my needs.

No tricks, just dirt!

This Halloween landed on a Monday.  Bummer. Bike or hand out candy.  Bike or hand out candy. BIKE!

We actually had a decent sized group make it out, I guess they were thinking along the same lines as me.






Cranksgiving this Saturday

Once again it's that time of year. Wow it went fast. 11am depart Bike Masters parking lot. get items for donation (Sienna Francis House), return them back to starting point. this is a great time and it's all for a good cause. check with Bike Masters for more details.

The Bike Batman

He saves bikes from the thieves, and gets them back to the rightful owners. Awesome guy helping to make people happy again in a world of bike thieves that don't give a crap about other people's possessions and hard work.

My cat sits weird

At least that's what my sister and Mom say...



TrackR device

With all the things that have been stolen lately, whether it be Jeeps (my buddy's Nissan was recently stolen), or bicycles, check out this device that I came across on the Jeep forum. I have yet to look into the  quality or reliability of the device, i did not look at the reviews yet. But basically it's a little device that you can hide somewhere and then your phone will track the location of it. It's about the size of a quarter so it can be easily hidden. And for those of you that lose keys and what not, you could possibly even put one on your keychain and then just track your keys using your phone. Even a pet could be tracked.

Ponderosa Cyclery and Tour

Why have I not heard of this place before? Sounds like a cool shop! I was down in the Blackstone area over the weekend where I came across: a pickup I want and a new bike shop? 



Ponderosa Cyclery and Tour. 4011 Farnam Street. They build and fix bikes, they tour with them too. How cool! They actually have a meeting this June 10th talking about the basics of bike touring and camping. Kind of like a 101. 


And then this pickup I saw. I don't need a pickup. But would like an old pickup. This was parked up on the sidewalk next to Sullivan's. For Sale it read. Oh boy. I'm tempted to go back and get the phone number.

NRSCCA Solo #1

I had the chance this past weekend to watch Chris Price race out at AirPark in Lincoln. Pretty fun time. Shot a ton of pictures. Saw some pretty fast cars going through the course. Sitting on the concrete and then having Sunday Funday in Lincoln really wiped me out. Ended up at Watering Hole for wings afterwards with Joel and then we stopped by the Boiler Room. Coconut porter and Raspberry Berliner Weiss. Good stuff! Sure beat the Busch Light that we started off with!
