Loads to share from Interbike...

....but at the moment the biggest news for me is that I slept 24hrs over the last two nights, which just might be a record for me! Let's hope that's enough to catch up on the twelve hours of sleep I had during the whole show. Does that make it even now???

I can feel myself coming back to normal finally, and once I get completely unpacked and organized, I will update you on the show. WOW(!)we have cool things happening in the bike industry.....I just love it! More to come about our brands and the cool new things and announcements, but overall I have to say that I believe anyone who rides a bike is already a happier person than those who do not! So spread the word and get your friends and family members out on a's a beautiful, beautiful thing and one of the most amazing inventions ever. Even for all the craziness and stress of business that goes down at the show, it never fails that I leave Vegas feeling super fortunate to be part of this industry!

Cheers to all ...and as always, word to the bike.

Two reasons that I know it's Fall

1.) I am running on a regular basis (well...errr lets call it "jogging")
2.) I switched from white wine to red and appreciate every sip :)

I named her "Angel"

SE LAGER in Cool White....and she's all mine in a 47cm.
(click on the picture to get a better view).

Gotta build her up this weekend.

I think I'll plan to get a few different sets of Velocity rims in different colors and then just change them out to suit my mood ---which changes often by the way, lol. But keeps life colorful to change, right?
So...for the rims, I'm thinking a teal set, a purple set, a green set and well maybe a set of powder gray mags (but it seems to only be cool to sport one of those at a time, so I'd be mixing in the colored velocity rim...sounds hot hey.). I might even go on and get a different seat to change it up at times, but the one that comes on it is checkerboard with a lightning bolt.....that's hard to beat for now :)

so hey...
when was the last time your brother designed the bike you ride?
mine did ;)

Me and Angel are gonna go places together....

contrary to popular belief....i am still alive.
promise i will be better at updating soon. gotta remember it's pre-season here in the cycling industry and there is not a minute to spare right now! i did just get to go see my baby up in santa rosa this weekend though.
lets see.... in 48hrs i drove to norcal, watched a varsity high school football game (was too late to watch myles play in the jv game thanks to bay area traffic), went to dinner downtown with myles and his sweet girlfriend, went to sleep, woke up and went straight to the flying goat (ahhhhhhh....that espresso was a treat), went for a spin in kenwood, met myles at his football practice, had a chit-chat with his coach, showered, went to lunch with myles, stopped by my old house and sifted through some stuff, packed my car to the gills, drove to san francisco...raced the san francisco twilight(!), showered again (at the nearest 24hr fitness), hung out with one of my best girlfriends, met up with the race peeps, went out dancing, ended the night with a couple of tacos in the castro way past dinnertime ahem...and went to bed by 3am.

then was up at 8:30 and was straight to union street for breakfast with the gang.
one tasty meal and two double espressos later i was back on the road to socal.

got home in time for an hour run.

it's a beautiful thing when you represent bicycles named after such a spectacular feature of the planet....
