I'm over this font

I love the winged "M" I've been using lately, it needs some refinement but it has that classic look that I dig. But the font for the downtube sticker...hmm, I need some help there huh? I wonder if there are any graphic design guys out there who might be interested in a bike work/design work trade.

A nice 650b before it gets packed up and shipped.

Why I went to NAHBS.

I went to be in the middle of the "scene" for once. I didn't go to be flashy - all but one of the bikes I brought were daily riders with at least 1000 miles on them. I didn't even enter anything in the awards.
I just wanted to meet guys like Rody Walter ( Groovy Cycles) and Eric Noren ( Peacock Groove) and talk to all the other like-minded folks there. With the exception of the few times I started feeling like a used car salesman, the show was a great success!
A special thanks to Scott who endured the hipsters and getting stranded by a snowstorm for a day in Trinidad...are you ready to go to North Carolina next year?

The Booth ( a bad pic)

Not a bad setup. I was lucky to get a corner! It was funny to see what types of people gravitated to what bike.
The exception was this kid's bike in the front. Everybody liked that one.

Disc rando back for a rack

After several thousand miles, it's time for a custom rack on this rando bike. Quite the eclectic mix of parts on this one. Not too many bikes out there with disc brakes AND downtube shifters!
This rack will be just big enough to carry a small bag and a few clothes while being small enough to be unobtrusive when unloaded. Curves and rocket shape for cool points too!
