The Bulldog

It didn't take Pat long to start sticking it to the B's field. At the Hood River Cyclocross Classic Pat overcame a terrible starting spot to take the win with apparent ease.
Now I'm not gonna say it was all the bikes doing but I'm sure it helped.
Let's see how things go during the Cross Crusade.

I rode the Monster Peach today with some yahoos from town. I'm wrecked. I wish I was using my SRM today. I'm sure I would have seen a new kJ high.

Made to be Broken

I know I promised not to post any more youtube but it's Beck and damn good. At least the song rules, the video was done be an ameteur.

In Marcroft Cycles news, it looks like Damian Schmitt will be rolling deep on a Marcroft cross frame this season. Awesome!

Hit the Wall

I managed to build 75% of a 50 foot retaining wall this weekend. There's a 2 foot diameter root standing in the way of completing the final 25%. Nothing a little chainsaw work can't fix. I hope I don't lose a toe in the process.

I've given myself this month to get all the house work that I've been putting off for the last 9 months done. Problem is I'm also riding big miles on the weekends. Nothing like 4 hours of saddle time before working in the yard.

Sneak Peak

Here's a look at the ad I'm putting in CX Magazine. It's simple but I'm a simple guy.

PDX Builders Busy....

And I have nothing to do. How can that be? Most of the builders 35 miles north have more work than they can shake a stick at and I am down to building myself more bikes. There's not a lot of profit in those bike ya know.

How can this be? I'm I not cool enough, do my bikes suck, am I not sexy enough on the bike? Maybe, no way and only in the winter. What can I do to generate some business? Should I turn my blog into a shameless promotion machine? Nah. Perhaps more youtube postings would help?

One thing I could do is a little advertising. That's why I'm putting an ad in CX Magazine. They anticipate distributing 2,500 copies of their first issue and I'll have a half page ad in there. I better up the minutes on my phone because it should be ringing off the hook!

Weekend Rides

Good rides on both Saturday and Sunday. You'd think I was training for something.
