Pizza and bikes...

I'm sure the folks who went to the North American Handbuilt Bike Show (NAHBS and pronounced NABS), got exactly what they were looking for. For the most part, that's "over-the-topedness." It's actually easy to go over the top and make things overly complicated so intricately detailed, the concept of what the item's intended use is lost. The real task is making something simple, clean, and infinitely useful. Hmmm, sounds familiar. I wrote this post just over a year ago and still really like the quote by Albert Einstein I used to begin the post, "Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex and more violent. It takes a touch of genius, and a lot of courage, to move in the opposite direction."

If you like the simplicity of the bike because its lines and purpose are clean and pure, if you like pizza that is made with simple ingredients, if you like hanging out with people who like those things, you want to be at Una Pizza Napoletana on Sunday March 20 at 1 p.m. Sean from Soulcraft Bikes and Anthony from Una Pizza are putting on a gathering of NorCal's frame builders and parts makers that is sure to be a great event.

And if you appreciate some good natured sarcasm and humor like I do, you'll appreciate this post: Can't we all just get along.
