    Great Gulf - 5/22/2009

    Cross post form T4T; but I figure some of you may like some Spring Skiing Stoke. Headed up to do some skiing with Austin, drove up the night before and stayed at my place up there so we wouldn't actually have to get up at 4am to go skiing (and then drive 4 hours on top of that). After getting a...

    Ironhorse is out

    Found this somewhere else, read any bike forum and lots of people are talking about it; latest "hype" of the past two weeks. Verdict is that you will still be able to get bearings, but good luck if your frame cracks.
