curtis's b-day, Artcrank, and Hunter's foot longs...
So much to do so little time! Many new things happening here. Introduced ear flaps to my hats as a winter addition to keep all of our little domes even warmer. The "Hunter foot longs" were actually a special order that Rick Hunter asked me to make for him for his tour he just finished. He wanted foot long bills and ear flaps...so i obliged. The luce goods version will have just the regular size bill. Apparently they were a great success which makes me very happy! Be on the lookout for those on my flickr page!
In other news....wandered down to the city this weekend for Curtis's 41st b-day and the "Artcrank" show at the chrome store which our good friend jeffe had a piece in. Turns out Curtis is still hella™ hip and can crush like nobodies business at cx! We found him this awesome magasine in Japan town which had all things San Francisco cycling style. Except for Sasha...he's from Portland..but Chuey was there, and Freight, just to name a few. Excellent turn out at the "Artcrank" show. It was so refreshing to see so many bikes parked outside. Unfortunately i had my girls with me and it was quite loud and bit much for them so we didn't get to linger...but it was still nice to show them a slice of culture which they don't get very often in our small town that is Santa Rosa. Saddly our same friend jeffe got hit by a car on his bike just a couple days after his triumphant night! No worries he is fine! Baddly bruised and out a sick Retrotec road bike but he made it out with no broken bones! Phew! Beware everyone of motorist not paying attention. In the battle of bike against car the car always wins. lame.
And finally Luce Goods has found a home on another jersey. This one belongs to Black Cog Industries a new racing team headed by our good friend Rich Robinson. Nice work getting it together Rich!
Right thats pretty much it for now. Went on an amazing bike ride this weekend out in west county and pretty much decided that as a bike rider i am the luckiest ever to live in such a perfect place for the sport. Especially in the fall....Ride safe and watch out for cars pulling out!
