Wallpaper Wednesday – Levis Mound

Took a little trip up to Levis Mound to kick off (meteorological) summer and give these new Surly Sunrise handlebars a try at one of my favorite places to camp and ride. The rain must have scared off a lot of people, because I practically had the place to myself (at night). It was getting […]

Sûrly unearths Fester

In the movies, Fester was lost during a Typhoon in the Bermuda Triangle, but we dug this fester out of a big corrugated cardboard box. E-Bikes, Aluminum Handlebars and now Titanium? It’s beginning to look like an all too familiar slippery slope of full-grown bicycle geekery. So like…steel is real, but titanium is real light? […]
