Post #300, A Milestone And A Finish Line

Done. No more posts. No more retail next year. Das kaputt. This blog will now be mostly static.

All retail items in the shop are now being liquidated. All bicycles and accessories will be sold near or at wholesale prices.
Come and get them while they last.

Stay tuned for my next chapter, my next blog. Next year I will be doing repairs and fabricating my own heavy duty bicycle cargo trailers. Car(e) Free Bike Trailers. It has a ring to it, I think.

Post # 299

Yes, I'll be in the shop today. Fe700c Bicycles will be open from 11 to 4:30. I'll be spending time and money replacing a wheel on a new Fuji Absolute for Reed C. It's true: I will not be selling 2010 new Fuji Bicycles next year. And, once the 2009 bicycles are gone, I promise to never, never, never again sell bicycles with machine built wheels and MicroSHIFT components. So, look at the sidebar, and come get what's left of the Fuji Bicycles. I will sell them at nearly any price. I love to negotiate (I say $675, you say $550, I say "that's what I paid for it," you say $600, and I say "sold"). Seriously, if you want a Fuji Touring bike that retails for $1100, you can now get one for $600.

Dude, It's Cross Season

I've seen snow twice already this year. Nothing in the valley mind you, but real snow on the top of Mt. Logan. The leaves are starting to turn. The fire weed is going to seed. That can only mean one thing. Cyclocross season. The first race of the Utah Series is October 3. There are local fun/practice/races here in Logan every Tuesday and Wednesday at 5:30 through November. Meet at the Cache County Fairgrounds (400 S 500 W) on Wednesdays and at the Temple Benches (100 N and Boulevard) on Tuesdays. There will also be a Cross Camp at the Fairgrounds this Saturday starting at 3:00.

In the picture below from 2007 I'm the guy in the red hat. I finished right were I started, in 5th place, just 5 seconds behind 4th and 30 more behind 3erd. Most everyone else finished right where they started too. It's often like that in cross. The series leaders get called up to the front at the start of the race. Before the race started there was over a half foot of fresh snow on the ground. During the race nearly another half foot fell. I'm telling you, there is nothing more fun than a cyclocross race in the snow. Really. Right behind that, pouring rain and a foot of mud.

Closing In On Post # 300

300 posts, that is a lot of blogging. It's not a waste of time if it makes me feel better. It's cheap therapy, I say.

Here is a bad picture of Heather and Patty, high above Park Silly on the Mid Mountain Trail (photo by Greg W.).

Where You Been?

I know there has been very little content on this blog as of late. I've been pretty busy: working in Montana for four days, working on bikes in the shop, and going to Park City over the Labor Day weekend. I rode the Flying Dog with Greg and Heather. Here is a video of this fantastic trail. Sorry I can't embed it here.
