I've always enjoyed taking the time to clean the bike after an event. This gives you an intimate and up close look at what the bike is experiencing in terms of wear and tear. Failure to do this, could hand you a DNF, the next time you pin on… Continue

Lancaster and York, PA bike paths, don't skip them.

There's a term that some friends and I throw around when we witness, instigate an action, implement, or even on purpose- think that something might draw parallels to what Pro-Tour racers do.  Simply put-- Keepin' it pro.





Obviously we're not 'pros' or 'professional bicycle racers'.  What we're actually doing is… Continue

ATTN SOCAL CROSSERS!

SoCal people: I’m looking for host housing for Bonelli-Fontana weekends for 4 people (3/13-3/24)… We are charming (they are well-mannered Canadians and I am fairly nice and have started to say "eh" at the end of things, so kind of count) and very easy to have around the house. Like quiet housepets that use the shower and toilet and fridge. (We can split up into 2 groups/jump from place to place if necessary.) Will provide beer, snacks and excellent conversation. Shoot me a message if you…

For Sale: Salsa Chili Con Crosso 55 cm (~57 or 58 cm) frame and fork + extras
