Night ride...bikes on dirt

yeah, i know, bad picture. that's jupiter below the moon last night. i've been thinking how fun riding at night in the fall is. some of it has to be the sun going down early and it's dark when there is time during the work day to ride. the other part is the weeds and bugs are less of a bother. regardless its fun...again.

Harold McGoo McGruther has been in the bike industry for longer than anyone I know. His newest child is the SNAFU Crenshaw (named after a street in my own stomping grounds)... a trick hybrid trail and urban destroyer. Perfect for aging BMXers like me. Dig it... thanks McGoo.
