why didnt they just break that spoke and ride away?
My bikeride was great this morning, and it helped to rid my hangover. I always see the craziest things on the beach trail, I really need to start writing them down. Today was a homeless/toothless man doing head tumbles on the cement. He made me smile.
carrying that shit is effort. riding away, a breeze. . .
I know . . . I'm an idiot.
Nice, I have those from time to time, today my homie and I rode up to Lexington, almost to Santa Cruz, my friend brought his bong with us and we blazed up in the hills...
This is my homie hitting his bong...
40 mile bike ride...

Beautiful. I think you might have just inspired me.
This was our ride to breakfast yesterday morning.
me and my little brother give to the man, the tanks in the background feed all of San Diego with gasoline.

My bike was stolen on Friday, locked up in front of my store in broad daylight. I asked the cafe next door if they saw anything happen, and apparently the chef saw the whole thing go down...these two guys snapped my lock and up and went with my bike I was balling my eyes out at work...it was a special gift from my favorite customer Ron the Barber, and he gave it to me to replace the OTHER bike that was stolen last summer. My bike was the only way I got around. *tear* time to search for a new one.
FYI, if anybody is in the OC area and interested in a grueling yet fun ride in the Santiago Oaks, we'll be having a Bikes and Beers in the next couple of weeks. All are welcome. Just a quick trip up the 3 Bitches and then too many beers at the local brewery.
I'll post the date once it's announced, but PM me if you want specific information.
I've been biking to the beach every day. It's a blast. The river doesn't smell as bad as normal and the flowers are blooming, so there's a nice view the whole way down, and I've been going as the tide comes in and the winds pick up, so there have been some awesome waves as I'm riding down the shore. Good way to get exercise.
If only everybody would discover the glory of the bike, we could have such a perfect world.
Fourtunatly it wasn't my nicer summer bike, which is just a couple of new tires and a new lock away from coming back out.
WTF were you thinking parking a bike without a lock? You silly, silly boy.
I am still trying to loose wait.
our saterday ride for this week.

Where is that building? It's quite interesting.
THE PATH BIKE SHOP (Tustin) had our Bikes and Beers and I would have publicized times and such for the locals that might have been interested, but they kept info on the serious DL. We didn't even know it was happening for sure until the night before. This apparently was an attempt at avoiding the park rangers and cops from harassing us as 100+ riders took over the streets and trails.
We (the family and friends) didn't go crazy this year because we brought the kids on the ride, so we cut out before they headed up the 3 bitches. The rest of the crew on the other hand had quite an adventure. It was good times for all.
Fuck, I love bikes.

Growlers are great, I have a brewery across the street from my work, after work I get mine refilled, I need to get on my bike, it's screaming my name...
I love growlers too, but you gotta commit to drinking the whole thing in one sit down imo. Beer is not so great flat and old, but it's always better shared anyway.
My husband's pride and joy was injured quite a few years back. She is a titanium GT Zizang (sp?) and it has finally been given a second life. It's frame cracked and Jim had to give in to the fact that it's mountain life was over. Luckily with the great and talented friends we have, we were able to weld it, add a few awesome accessories, and give it a life as a street cruiser.
It's not quite done. He needs a new seat and eventually we will be putting one of those flat wooden racks on the front - perfect for transporting a case of beer. Everytime I look at her now it makes me happy. That poor, wonderful frame sat in the closet for years and sometimes at night I could hear her whimper for sunshine.
She lives again!!!!

That is gorgeous, love the wood, and the growler each time I've had them I've killed them myself or with help from friends, it would go flat...
those wood fenders are sick, especially with the whitewalls. Would look great with a wood handle bar. This guy always posts his on fixed gear gallery: http://www.woodhandlebar.com/
Not sure how easy it would be to put brakes on though, or if your husband would be interested in a flat bar.
i would be so scared to ride wooden handle bars. even on a cruiser. they look awesome though.
gunz, that bike is damn sexy. glad she's out in the sun again. dont have any extras out here, but back east i had many things, bike associated, that i just couldnt throw away.
Wooden handle bars sound scary.
If they broke on a cruise, I guess you could navigate with the stem.
It reminded me of the single speeders that have bars that barely fit their palms on either side. Imo, ridiculous.
here's a wooden bicycle
