Alright, its springtime, and cycling season is in full swing. Races are happening at both the pro and amateur level…and thats great. People are getting out there to train and ride and nothing could make me happier.
Unless maybe my biceps were bigger.
In shop news, things are very busy. Had to work 16hrs last weekend..no fun. At least it was cold and rainy in Park City. This weekend 85 and sunny in Santa Clara.
Not bad to have the work…nice to see people picking up Kona bicycles.
There was even a little time at then end of the day to resurrect an old friend. In 1990 I had Ross Shaefer, founder of Salsa Cycles build me a frame. I wanted something that could do it all. The masters that I apprenticed under at the bike shop all had monster cross bikes and I fell in love instantly. Steve Smith had a little blurb on old school monster cross bikes recently…Read about it HERE. And just so you know, “Captain Sporty Pantaloons” is Sean, who used to work at Salsa…and now works at/owns Soulcraft. And I”m sure you know, years ago QBP purchased Salsa and Ross and Sean have absolutely nothing to do with Salsa….well, hopefully Ross gets some royalties or something….
Anyway, here is my ancient Salsa. I only wish I had two….like Hurl has.
Off to riding I go….but I will leave you with this.
