Legos are fun. The smaller models look challenging to me because each part matters more.

With fenders and a few gears to choose from

I like the potential options on this bike.


Jørgen Leth Interview

A few words from the guy that made the most famous cycling film ever, "A Sunday in Hell" about the 1976 Paris-Roubaix bike race. It is cool to hear Jørgen talk about art, Jazz, poetry and how much he loves bikes. I like the idea that bikes are so rad they should be sung about... that will make sense when you see it. I did this interview at the Sundance Film Festival a few years ago with Brendt Barbur of the Bicycle Film Festival.

coming my way

been thinking about a new bike from soulcraft. at first it was a front shock 29er. but after consideration i thought, i just wouldn't ride that bike as much as i should. so, i opted for a skinny tire bike, something i have less of than fat tire bikes. more later...
