Back to bicycle related content...

First ride of the new year, new decade, new week... It was a nice clear(ish) day and not being able to decide on either a road or dirt ride, I did both and hit the road over to Inverness to the dirt road that takes one up to Mt. Vision Rd. and then over Inverness Ridge Trail to Limantour Rd. I also set up a flickr page to post pictures so now I've got to figure out how to link them here as well. Be warned, the last photo may of a disturbing nature if you don't like the result of squirrel vs. car.

The b&w shot is really cool.

Is that an unpainted steel BM proto bike you are riding?

Thanks. It was totally not worth saving in color, but in b/w, it works pretty good.

The frame is one I had made years ago - 2005 according to the drawing notes. It was designed to be a 29" rigid frame for drop bars - much like the Fargo that came out a few years later. I finally got around to building it up recently.
