even more than that...














i was just reading a blog that i usually check out... he mentions having a lot of bikes. it made me happy that i'm not alone. why is it that some people care how many bikes you have? when you say how many you have, they get all indignant and ask why. why? why the fuck do you care? it's simple. i like to. it's my favorite thing to do, build and ride bikes. it's more of an obsession really...
no, i don't and can't ride them all at once... i don't ride them as much as i'd like either. i have favorites, but sometimes that changes. for me, there is nothing like building up a new bike. whether old parts or new (sometimes building up the old stuff is more satisfying). to see and ride the finished product is exhilerating. i forget all my problems.
problems were forgotten about tonight, we just finished john's redline. it looks pretty bad ass... the spot isn't ready yet so the redline is getting the call. race sunday.














i've been slowly working on the surly... stupid stuff is holding me back- spacers, chainring bolts. dammit. this is when i miss working at the shop, all this little petty stuff was at your fingertips.
i've got some other stuff in the works too. hopefully everything'll come together sooner than later.

I always like the all famous " What kind of bike do you ride?"
Like well ahh....
It depends.
Quit asking questions- I just ride.

Why do you have so many bikes?
