SQUIRT LUBE Making it into CX big timer mechanic's "favorites"

There are some very big names beginning to figure out the huge benefits of Squirt Lube in ALL CX conditions. Look for Katie Compton as well as her husband Mark to be running it this year, as well as many returning National Champions, Ned Overend, Gary Thacker and MANY others to be running the only water/wax emulsified product out there on their drivetrains this CX season. Why does it work so well? With water as the carrier, and more than twice… Continue

My Computer is Killing Me!

It is a sly little devil, that laptop of mine. The damn thing has already cost me one angioplasty (heart surgery) because of it and I'm pretty sure I will need weight loss surgery of some kind soon too. Maybe I could sue Microsoft or Dell and charge that they are in a conspiracy with the health care industry. Maybe Google too. That damn thing keeps me… Continue

Look Quartz Pedals

Hi all, I purchased a pair of Look Quartz pedals. They rock! Easy to clip in and out of. I also have SPD and Candy's. These have a better feel with enough float for my pedaling style. Mine are red and I put them on my Redline Sport. Make sure to add a shim, I used mine with my Specialized shoes. Without the shims it is hard to get locked in.

FS: Race Ready 2003 Bianchi Axis

2003 Bianchi Axis - 55cm (slightly compact/sloping frame, will therefore fit anyone in a 54-57cm range)

Race Ready; bought the frame and fork stock a couple years back. With the exception of the seatpost and headset, everything else has been spec'd out for an extremely race-oriented bike. That being said, the bike is incredibly versatile and with a few minor adjustments would be perfect for everyday road use.

Rainier High

So I have been over at the Rainier High School course looking at different lines and ways we can change it up a bit but keep the big climb, there is also a nice set of stairs about 40 in total that would be a nice addition, but might kill a guy! last years course was pretty cool and very fast maybe a few more tight turns?

Back on the bike!

Finally I can go outside and ride my bike! Today Jesse Lopez and I another Crossniac are planning on taking the Mountain bikes out, I`am to wear a heart rate monitor and not let it go over 175, and also try to keep it at a level 150-155 we will see not always easy on an MTB ride! In December I purchased a Cannondale F2 and and two days after receiving it I was in the hospital, so this will be its break in ride along with mine, and I`m sure Jesse will try to burry me but I just have to ride my… Continue

A "Roubaix" ride

Well… the Easter weekend sure turned out better than expected! Some decent biking (including a “Roubaix” like ride in hell on Sunday afternoon), some good beer, good eating, good family time, and I enjoyed Slumdog Millionaire a lot on Friday night.

But the big bonus of the weekend happened yesterday. A few months ago, my LBS hooked me up with a decent beginner road bike for my wife. A Felt Z90 that we pimped up a bit with a mix of 105/Ultegra components. So after training on the… Continue
