Lone Hat Rack.

It sits in my hallway at work. Mostly empty, now that it is warming up again in Texas.

A Prairie Home Companion

I usually try and listen to this every week. But most of the time I miss it and have to listen to the mp3 of the Lake Wobegon section the following Monday or Tuesday. Glad to see they have the full shows now up on their site.

Summer: Stories from the Collection News from Lake Wobegon

Stuff in my bag.

Everyone should carry two yo-yos, a Ti spork, mini tri pod, three way allen, and a patch kit.

The New Ride

Thanks to Mark Noble at Deluxe BMX and Eric Block at Forty Distribution I was able to get my hands on one of these kick ass Deluxe frames and set it up as my new trail bike. And with some major help from Brian at Demolition and Tom at Empire I was able to piece this thing together as almost completely new. I did keep the very old Ukai single wall front rim laced to the Suzue low flange front hub as a throwback, seeing as I have had that wheel forever. Just a few more little tweaks and it is done. Yes, I am planning on cutting done that steerer tube. Now come on Texas, get your shit together and give us some good weather. 

A Fun Day of Hiking

So last weekend the boy and I went for a little hike threw the Greeway Trail at Lady Bird Johnson Park. Nice little day of exploring and finding left over ice from the previous days freeze. We also had a little scare as someone's Pit Bull pup was loose on the trail and he had the high ground on us. We made a clean get-a-way and had a great day exploring. Here are a few pictures taken with my EVO.

San Francisco Old School BMX Footage

Maurice Meyer always has great old school video clips over on his You Tube site. This little segment from what looks to be some kind of local kid's show, has a lot of great riding from some of the San Fransisco legends. Looks to have been shot right around the time this issue of Freestylin' came out.
