Cavalcade of blog posts...

Been busy. Too busy, seemingly, to post anything here. Takes time to upload photos, think up something to write, and do all that and take care of all the bikes that are coming in. This post will be a "what's in the stand" post on a recent cross bike I built.

This cross bike represents something very close to what I was thinking of building for myself. I've been thinking I really should be on something newer than 1995 8-speed parts. After all, it's really my responsibility to know exactly how all this new 10-speed stuff works.

I am deeply in love with my BMC cross bike and really like the fact that I used a sugino Triple on it. I plan to finish Trans Iowa on it in april of 2012. It helped me finish Dirty Kanza this year. Great Machine!
