Hot Stuff!

Well, here it is:

The official My Wife Inc. Dia de Los Jackalope Embrocation, custom blended by Mad Alchemy. A big thanks to Pete Smith with Mad Alchemy for his patience with versions of the blend and for making it so easy.

You can get yours here, but use with caution - it's hot enough to turn a pink jackalope RED.

shiny new things for a new season

Every season brings new things. Spring brings a good cleaning, plants greening up, rains to wash the road salt away, and for me, shiny new things for my bikes. As you can see from the first picture, this spring brought changes for the Blue - new life as a single speed with new wheels from Corsa Concepts, our new wheel building friends from the pacific northwest, and new chain, chain ring, cables and bar tape.

Greg Hudson did a super job on a custom set of Corsa 1.2ACR's with a White Industries ENO eccentric hub and freewheel out back. I can't wait to get these really dirty. Expect a non-race review soon.

The road bike got some new stuff too - a new chain, new cables all around, and new bar tape. It's amazing what slick new cables will do for your shifting. If only there was something as dramatic and easy to get me back in to riding shape.
