A random collection of thoughts associated with the sport of cycling, as relayed by one hopelessly devoid of too many competing interests. It's a one track blog I'm afraid. But hey, if you like bikes you might enjoy it. So keep reading and the worst that'll happen is it might rot your brain..

Bike and parts reviews? Will anyone care?


If I actually turn this thing on again and offer up some bike related product reviews would anyone care? Or will people just think I'm trying to sell them stuff?

Yard Sale!!

Time for some spring cleaning prior to opening the shop. I'd rather meet within a 45 drive of Providence, RI. I will ship if you agree to pick up the tab. I'm not interested in driving or shipping the smaller items, if you're local and need the cassette or jerseys let me know.

The prices are great so if you want a 650b mountain bike or need a fork for a project bike shoot me an email. mtbdee at hotmail dot com.

Haro Beasley 1x9, medium. Stock with the exception of an upgraded Cane Creek S-3 headset, a wider riser bar, 2.3 Nevegals and an SDG Belair saddle. $675

Haro's geometry info here: http://www.harobikes.com/mtb/geo5.html

Fox Vanilla R fork, 140mm, recently overhauled with new wiper seals and oil. Stiff spring installed, steerer is almost 8". 1 1/8 and it is has standard QR lowers. $200

XTR 8 spd 11-32 cassette. Used for 1/2 a season. $30

Deore external bottom bracket crankset with XT BB. Used for 2 seasons, no rings. BB was new at the start of this season and is in OK shape. $50

The worst kept secret, ever...

Click below and act surprised!


Seriously folks, feel free to spread the word. It's not like everyone and their brother doesn't know about this already anyways. Which, is, of course the point of telling people in the first place.

So please, tell a friend! Or two, or three. Tell them there's a new bike shop set to open up near the Blackstone River Bikeway (we worked real hard on the name, huh?) and Lincoln Woods in, yep, you guessed it; Lincoln, RI. Tell them some real nice guys who aren't opposed to living at, or below, the national poverty level are there to fulfill all of their bicycle related needs.

There's beer in the fridge, bike stuff on the way and a whole bunch of Ramen in the cupboard. Yeah, sure, we got this...

Recent Pics, snow riding and whatnot..

A few pics from a recent snowy ride at Lincoln Woods. Hopefully Adam notices that I'm actually in a few of these.

In non bicycle related news local ska band The Stress were mentioned over on Steve's excellent blog. Click above for the review and the link to the free download of some good local tunes.

Log Ride

A few pics from Thursday's Bluff Point snow ride extravaganza. Great packed snow conditions, if a little on the soft side. The trails were mostly firm and fast, with fun surprise traction changes and the occasional patch of hidden ice. Aside from nearly neutering myself on a small rock step up it was a great ride. Thank the lord for bashguards...

It never gets old.....

Riding, that is. One might think it would, at least after almost 20 years in the woods. Whether amid either snow, rain, hail, sunshine, sleet, mosquitoes and blood. It's all the same thing, all the time; Fun! And lots of it. Get off the internets and get outside and ride!
