Happy International Cat Day! Please enjoy these pictures of Marcel being a cat! #InternationalCatDay #MarcelTheShopcat
Yes it's going to rain tonight. Who wants to ride anyway? Trush me man, this is the most fun you can have on a group ride. Where & When: Oh, Wheelie? 6pm sharp. What to bring: gloves, clear glasses, two bottles of water a ziploc bag for your phone & wallet, a plastic bag or seat cover for your Brooks, a lock and some cash. We'll probably make a stop for tacos, pinball or something.
Edited for clarity
I didn't expect to like this bike this much.
Crowdfunding my next bike. If you like this, you gotta send me five bucks. Share & you owe me a ten spot. If you think I'm kidding, try me.
Remember when I said my favorite thing about Denver was Sunday am? Well that was a god damned dirty lie. It's riding bikes with buddies. That's what's my favorite thing.
Anybody coming to the group ride tonight? Don't forget water (two bottles), money (if you're short I'll buy you a taco), lights (charge em if you got em!) and a lock (we like to make stops!). We'll go slow this time, promise!
Oh hey, you should probably charge your lights up tonight bring extra water bottles to work tomorrow (Monday), then swang by O,W? before 6pm so we can go for an evening ride. We usually do about 20 leisurely miles, average speed 10-20mph, maybe a stop for pho, tacos, sunset, puffers, saving some guy's life, ice cream or trains. Maybe a lot of stops, maybe not. Be prepared for anything. (meaning bring patches, not a shotgun) You could bring a flask of something, but nobody ever has, so maybe you won't need it. All are welcome. If in doubt, bring 'em. Within reason. Don't bring, like, a feral wolverine or anything.
So we checked out Norway today.
I love how Denver turns into a ghost town on Sunday morning.
Finish the craption: "Families who ride together....."
Def a shirtless riding kind of day.
Riding with a friend is twice as much fun as riding alone. Riding with two friends is 3x as much fun. Show up at the shop tonight before 6pm, and you're guaranteed to at least ride with two friends. Which, if you're reading carefully, you'll have noticed is 3x the fun. But here's the thing - if more people besides you show up.....oh boy! Casual pace (10-15mph), probably about a 20mi loop with breaks to watch the sunset, take a puff off Steve's vape pen, watch the sunset, say hi to the ducks, and maybe some ice cream. This is not one of those rides where everyone does four jager bombs and then rides 1.5mi, vomiting the whole way. This is also not a group of oncologists on Pinarello Dogma F10's. This is a common ride, for the people!
Been dying to show you guys this, but wanted @davisjjames to see it first. This is his new Atlantis, and it's about my favorite build. .
Build overview: Nitto Bullmoose bars, Nitto Crystal Fellow post, B17, White Industries M15 hubs laced to 36h Velocity Atlas rims w/sapim butted spokes. Schwalbe Big Ben Plus tires. Microshift thumb shifters, Deore derailleurs, XT chain & cassette, Sugino XD600 triple cranks (fuck trends), Tektro canti brakes & levers, IRD Durall h/s. Hand cut & stitched leather accouterments by yours truly. Not pictured: Nitto Big Front Rack, SKS Commuter fenders, MKS Slip King pedals
Well, I finally got myself to clamp down on those dropouts. I may have tightened them ever so slightly less than I normally do though. BTW, since I'm thinking of it, you guys know better than to overtorque cantilever bolts, right? I'm sure you do, but thought I'd check because it's that important.
