Going Green

Marcroft Cycles management has decided the last two days of 'going green' has been an epic fail. Management would like to apologize and has promised to restore power as soon as possible.

Oregon Manifest


Should be a good show. I decided not to display for multiple reasons. The main one being that I don't have any display bikes. Plus I kinda blew my show budget on NAHBS earlier in the year.

Ahhh, Welcome Back

Rain is back and so is the wind.

Looks like the air is holding in my cross tires so I'll be heading up to the first crusade this Sunday. I wimped out last week citing a sore throat and skipped the Rickreal race. I'll see how things go in the Bs. If I can stick a top 20 I'll move up to the A's....or just end my season with a top 20 finish. In reality, that's more likely.

Should be fun.

Tall Socks

For all of you on the ride today that were giving me shit about my tall socks. Here's my response, tall socks are for winners. Case in point, Mr. Contador.

Note the tall socks, just like I was wearing. Coincidence? I think not. Winners know style and tall socks are all about style.

SS Cross

In an effort to get even with Ryan Weaver for not racing for Marcroft Cycles this year I'm putting Kurt Haas on a SS with the intention of having him beat Ryan at every SS race he enters. Sorry for the tall order Kurt but it had to be done. Ryan, here's a sneak peak at the frame that's going to mess with your mind.

Friday, September 05, 2008


So, it's September now and everyone's thoughts are turning towards the upcoming cross season. I'm no exception. As I finish up some cross frames I can't help but think about the start of the NBA season and especially the Blazers and their potential season. they're going to be soooo good. I can't wait to see Rudy play in the NBA. This kid's good. Always looking for a play and it usually above the rim.

Check out the dunk over Howard in the Gold medal game.

Selling Out?

This logo

and a PDX address; I'll see a huge gain in business?

So it would seem judging from the shear number of builders in the greater metro area. 20 guys doing the same bikes? Really? Are they all making money and this? If it's true, I'm destined to be a non-profit builder because I'm not moving to Portland any time soon. If anything it might help to move further away from Stumptown. To a cycling community that isn't so close to a nexus of cycling that PDX has become.

Pretty soon a statement like: 'Marcroft Cycles Not Made in Portland' might be cool.

This is for the individual I saw this weekend on L'Alpe d'Amity.If you're out riding and you see a group of cyclists at the top of a mountain waiting for the rest of their group don't just blast by them. Stop for a second to say hi, nice day, where are you guys headed, I'm so-and-so. The list is endless. Just riding by while you adjust your i-Pod ignoring the other 8 cyclists makes you look like an ass. Not to mention the fact that you're wearing a team kit from a rather large car dealer in the Salem area. Great sponsor representation dill hole.

Back From Vacation

Nothing like 6 days away from home/work and such. I was able to get some solid miles in and check out a couple stages of the Cascade Classic. I made me want to race. Unfortunately it's back to the grind.

Weekend Racing?

I don't know if I would call what I did this weekend racing. I did pay an entry fee, pin on a number and start with a group of others people that had done the same. What I proceeded to do was slowly work my way backwards through the pack. From a choice spot in the top ten, I lost a few positions out of every corner until I was eventually tail gunning and then off the back completely. Grand total time in 'the race', 15 minutes.

Here's the proof that I was out there for a little while.

Maybe a shave would make me faster.

The TrailBlazers are my favorite NBA team; my second favorite NBA team is....any team that's playing the Lakers. That's why last night made me smile.

Wednesday, June 11, 2008


I rode my bike to work today....for the first time. I've been such a bike snob that commuting to work has been beneath me as it's not really training. But I figure at my current berthing weight, it can't hurt to burn a few extra calories per day commuting. Besides $5/gal for petrol is a bit too much.

Should I Go

This years 'Oregon' Builders Show. Should I display?

As many of you already know I have a love/hate relationship with PDX. I realy like the idea of having an Oregon show but unfortunatly some people think that Oregon is just the Portland Metro area. But I guess when 17 of the 22 Oregon builders are in P-Town it's easy to see why.

Rumor has it they are going to have a handmade only cross race. Might be cool. I predict a Vanilla, DeSalvo or maybe a Marcroft winning. The later being my personal favorite :)


I'd say.

Things I learned.
-When pros show up it's a hard race.
-Dogs running into a peloton sucks.
-Crits are fun.
-Seeing a crash happen sucks.
-Painting the house can be therapeutic.

Marcroft Cycles had Magnum PI guest ride this weekend too.

Weekend Lessons

A couple things I learned this weekend:
-A Pro cyclist life revolves around coffee shop stops: Seriously, how much coffee and pastries can you guys consume?

-Painting and yard work is much tougher than riding for 6 hours: Just painting a couple rooms and mowing the lawn kicked my ass. Weakling.

Everyone should be getting their Government 'Stimulus' check in the mail this month....time for a new bike.

HSP Web Re-Do

Check it out. HSP has redone their website. It looks really good too. Check out this featured program. Seth at HPC offers the same service and is a little closer.

Everyone that's serious about cycling and getting the best performance out of themselves should consider getting a fit done before the drop $6500 on a new bike. It just makes good sense.

Sunday, April 27, 2008


Today was the Monster Cookie that starts in Salem. It's basically a flat as a pancake rip from downtown Salem to Champoeg State Park and back. 62 miles. It tends to get a little spirited with the locals and today was no exception. Let's just say there was some discomfort during the ride. I'll see about posting some of the data tomorrow. I did get to test out my Edge 705 with the 'pro' mount and SRM on my race bike.

Faux Wheel

For those non-builders out there, disregard this post. For those out there that don't have a perfectly trued wheel here's an option I've come up with for checking the rearend alignment to the wheel.

It snaps onto an Anvil spacer (which everyone seems to be using). The wheel profile shown is 700x23. I'm going to have faux wheels done in MTB and 29er configurations too. Heck I might even sell a few.

Saturday, April 19, 2008


Really? Snow in April? A week after I got a sunburn at Kings Valley. This is BS, I'm moving to San Diego.

Thursday, April 17, 2008


Poor Tomeke. He learned a lesson that is invaluable. Don't start the celebration until you know for sure you've won. Especially if that rascal Chavendish is in the field.

Tuesday, April 15, 2008


So King's Valley sucked a$$. Well at least the weather was good and Doug O won with Zach W coming in a close second. My race was a joke. I made it halfway threw before not being able to hang on anymore. It sucks because I know I can hang, maybe even race in that field. I'm trying to find some more time to train and I'm looking at making every minute on the bike matter, no more junk miles.

I'm also trying to scrape together the cash to buy a fit bike. I'm pretty sure I can do it. It'll be pretty cool to have a bike I can fit people on before I build them a frame. I think I'll be the only one in the mid valley with one.

Friday, April 11, 2008

King's Valley

Alright tomorrow is King's Valley Road Race, a classic in these parts. I've attempted this race a bunch of times and have always had the worst of luck. Hopefully tomorrow will be different. I'm going into it with hardly any training in my legs and a few pounds over weight. I'm sure I'll be a factor in the finish....right.

Saturday, April 05, 2008


I wussed out of doing the stage race this weekend. I just couldn't justify the entry plus all the driving, especially when I don't know how my fitness is doing. So instead of racing this weekend I'm getting in a couple solid rides. Good luck to Doug W and Mick (even if he is in a FRM kit this weekend) It's pretty cool to know that I don't have to be at every race now and I'll still have good guys out there to show off the bikes. Now if I could just get Damian racing before September.

Today was 3.5 hours. I was able to shang-hi the ride today so we could do some of the tougher climbs around Salem. For 'climbs', what we have around here is not very long, about 2 miles, but gains on average about 800feet in the 2 miles. One climb is just 1.1 miles long with a gain of 800 feet. Sick. So it was throttle it on the climbs and noodle it to the next. We'll see what tomorrow has in store.

I'm building this guy a TT bike. He's pretty stoked. He just got fit up by the pros at HSP on their Waterford fit bike. I got the info yesterday and I'm working on the frame design now. Kevin is certainly one of those people that needs a custom bike. All leg, no torso. Basically the exact opposite of Kenji :)

Sunday, March 30, 2008


I just got home from racing Piece of Cake. One thing needs to be said about the 1/2 race. The centerline rule isn't a suggestion. I've never heard an offical say, "Guy's, we'd really like for you not to cross the centerline today." No. It usually goes like this, "This is your first warning, you'll be dq'd the next time." At least that's what I've heard.

I've never seen such disregard for one of the biggest rules in ameteur racing. Especially after a dude got hit head-on today after he went across the centerline. Where was our officail when this was happening. Where was Mr Kneuven? He doesn't put up with that crap.

Saturday, March 29, 2008


Weather got you down? Here's a little pick me up.

Tuesday, March 25, 2008


I've been getting busy finishing up the rear dropout design for my Ti Cross bikes. Here's a little peek.

MC Update

D-Dub's bike is at the painter so he won't have to race on a Taiwanese made plastic bike for much longer.

Thanks to Russ at HSP I'll be building an TT bike for one of their tri clients.

Damian's road bike is still in box form. Luckily he's gallivanting around the Rockies to be too worried about it right now.

Personally I'm about 90% healthy again from being sick...3 weeks ago. That bug kicked my ass. I'll be rolling the Piece of Cake this Sunday and then making a decision about Willamette that evening. I'd really like to do that stage race but I don't want to get my ass handed to me during the first stage.

Sen Obama

Did anyone catch his PDX speech today? Holy crap, it got me all choked up with excitement. It was the first time I've ever felt like a candidate was speaking directly to me. Is this guy for real? Can he really do all the things he's talking about? I sure hope we get the chance to find out.

K$ got to see him when he was in Salem and I have to say that I'm a little jealous now.

BB #3

I'm so glad I don't need to ride around that stupid lake for 11 more months.

Team Marcroft Cycles had 3 guys...well 2.5 guys as I'm still not feeling all that well after being sick. Mick, Doug and I were there and ready to go. Race went like this.
Lap one:
-Fast, I'm in a break. I drop out of the break. CMG rides tempo.
Lap two:
-Zach Winter bridges to the original break that I dropped out of. CMG rides tempo. Break @1:00
Lap three:
-More CMG tempo. Break @2:00. Doug breaks his drivetrain.
Lap four:
More CMG tempo. Break @1:10
Lap Five:
-Omer bridges with Joe King when the break is @:45ish
Lap six:
-The break is getting hammered. It's down to just Omer and Sagers. We stopped getting time splits. They are out of sight. I'm hanging by a thread on every 'serious hill.' Oh, and more CMG tempo.
Lap Seven (last lap)
-Pretty fast. I get dropped on the hill 4km from the finish. Mick gets boxed out in the sprint and chills. Omer wins from the break.

Next up, Independence Valley RR in Washington. Time to take this show on the road.

BB#2 Prep

I'll take one sore throat and an overall feeling of exhaustion. That should do my fitness wonders.

I'm going to use the wonders of the human mind to thwart off the attack on my system, "I'm not sick, I'm not going to get sick. Stay strong." Will be my mantra for the next 24 hours. If that doesn't work and I am overcome with the illness, I'll mope around the house whining about getting sick until K$ tells me to man up and deal with it. At which time I'm usually felling well enough to get out and ride again.

I'm off to go mix up some more of this.
Drink it up

Blazer B-ball

If there's one thing in this world I truely hate it's the Lakers. I hate them with every ounce of my soul. The reasons are many and just.

Last night the Blazers, with a full roster, took it to the team in gold and purple. It made me feel good to see those youngsters play team basketball and remain composed for the entire game.

Here's a clip that makes me smile evertime I watch it.

Ripped from Cyclingnews

I thought this was good. The Lion King breaks it down for Ball.

Cipollini and Ball's relationship on the rocks

The relationship that was started last fall in a Las Vegas discotheque could come to an end if Mario Cipollini does not get his say in the management of Rock Racing. The Italian, who came out of retirement at the age of 40 to race in the Tour of California last week, and his lawyer met with the owner of the team, Mike Ball, yesterday to discuss the coming season.

"We need to sit at the table and make clear who is in command," said Mario Cipollini in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport's Luigi Perna. The Italian from Lucca and lawyer Giuseppe Napoleone were scheduled to meet with Ball later in the day.

"The boss is Ball, but after him it is me. Therefore I want to manage the squad starting now. I can organise the participation in [Milano-] Sanremo. To find men to race is not a problem. ... If Ball does well it will continue, otherwise goodbye. I now understand that the name Cipollini still has value, in the United States and elsewhere."

Cipollini was happy with his return, but not with the fiasco surrounding the team and Ball's backing of Tyler Hamilton, Oscar Sevilla and Santiago Botero. The riders, all allegedly linked with Operación Puerto, were barred from racing by the organiser, but continued along daily by riding behind the race caravan and signing autographs for fans at the stage villages.

"For a week I had an infinite amount of patience ... Maybe it was my great desire to return to racing with an important project. However, we can't go forward like this. We are not able to continue to pull along this heavy weight that ruins our image, and now Ball also understands this. It is not enough to advertise and show off models."

2008 NAHBS Report

Here's how it went for 3 days at the show.
Me to showgoers, "Hi. How ya do'n?"
Showgoer, "Good"
"Where ya from?"
"Portland" (at least that was the majority of the people)
"Great! I'm from Salem."
"Really?!" they'd say with great suprise.

Another question I would get was, "Is this aluminum?" I guess people had never seen shape steel tubes before.

In all it was a good show. I handed out a ton of business cards and went though 100+ stickers. I met a lot of good people and I learned a lot having John Slawta displaying next to me. We'll see about going to Indy next year.

NAHBS Exhibitor List

I was scanning through the list of exhibitors for the show and something struck me funny....some of the builders are actually big ass companies that are cranking out a huge number of bikes per year (6000+). Hmmmm. I was looking forward to displaying with my peers.

Oh well, I'll make the best of it. If you're coming up to the show stop by and say hi. If all goes right I should be losing my voice sometime Sunday so if you want to actually talk, stop by Saturday.

While they last, I'll have cell phone sized Marcroft stickers to hand out too.

Economic Stimulus

It looks like everyone that held a job in 2007 is getting a 'gift' from the government. Sounds like a great time for everyone to buy a custom bike that's made in the US.

The only true way to stimulate the US economy is to keep the money from going overseas. The largest component I use that is not manufactured in the US is the tubeset and that is made in Italy. Bottom brackets, bridges, bosses are all made in the bay area. The tubing reseller is in Sacramento and Tri-Cities. All my Ti is domestic. My paint is done in Salem, Grants Pass or PDX.

So when a frame is purchased from Marcroft Cycles it's economic effect is far reaching.

Weekend away

So this last weekend was spent away from home. Bellingham Washington to be exact. K$'s best friend lives up there and we hadn't been up in a long time. Friday we packed dude and all his stuff, a bike, Mick's frame and enough clothes for a long weekend away. Here's all the stuff I didn't while K$ and dude hung out.

-Ride for and hour in B-Ham and see three real cyclists (Western Wash and a couple FRM)

-Drive to Herriott Sports Performance to check out the facility and do a group indoor ride. It was cool to have 8 people all hooked up to Computrainers 'racing' a course and each other. All the while Todd is jumping around and talking a mile a minute.
-I then went to Cascade Bicycle Studio and met Zac. He's got a sweet gig going, Here's what he's doing.
-Went to the 'burbs and hung out with Anthony and company. We discussed the merits of riding on all white Flights and I think I might have his lady sold on a new mountianbike.

-Rode with a group out of Fanatik Bike under sunny skies. It was great, there where about 20 people that showed up. They have a pretty good bike culture in Bellingham and from the sounds of things it's growing.

-Drive home, yuck. I have to work tomorrow.
