Once again, do not argue with a Grenier when weather is involved!
This was Little Gren's first spin on his 26" Mt. Bike.
Wednesday, December 29, 2010
in the 1998 Tour de France. That was the year that Bobby J put both
Ullrich and Pantani on the preverbal ropes in the mountains on the Porte, Cucheron, Granier, Grand Cucheron, and La Madeleine.

I was rollin' down Butano Truck Trail trying and trying with all my
might to stay on Potter's wheel. Mind you, Potter is rolling on Zipp
404's. On freaking gravel. The Gods of descending have blessed him.
Regardless he's now a visage. Dust clouds separate us...Willy from
Santa Cruz Bikes goes by. God$&@mit was that a bell I heard when he
I'm feeling good. In a groove. A few loose patches has my tail slide a
bit. Deep rut...high berm then I'm flipped like a pancake. Instant
Instant Steel Wul tattoo.
Thanks for the adventure.

When is the last time you have seen a 270 gr Eddy Merckx tubular?
I can't believe that we have almost lost 10 teeth off our little rings over the years.
How is it fair to the rest of the world that Italy has the best food, art, wine, cars, fashion, health, shoes, and cycling components.

A. You turn left on Aptos Creek Fire Road and enjoy some peace and quiet.
Don't panic its organic:
its the naturally growing cyanothis and chapparel that smells like urine at Sandpoint overlook.

talk shop with us for a few minuets. Tyson's Motobacane circa 1980's is
equipped with cork grips, retro thumb shifters, dove bars and compact
cranks from Rivendell Cycles. When asked where his Brooks saddle is, he
simply said, "it would get stolen in a San Francisco Minuet". Erika the
purist is rolling with a lugged Japanese track bike equipped with the
quintessential Brooks and toe-clips and staps.
(83 PSI rear, 71 PSI front = 154 lbs of Steel Wülnes)
Note the lugged Serrota with the Steel Wül um-louts for a Head badge

'GOLOATC' or Groms Of Live Oak Alternative Transportation Commission
Steel Wül Cycle Club earned a Silver Medal in the 'Transportation Innovation' Category with their 'SGMUAV' Single Grom Motorized Urban Assault Vehicle.
We think it was the simplicity of the invention that caught the eyes of all the judges. Our design is safe under lock and key. However, if you are interested in borrowing the design we ask that you use 100% post consumer recycled paper bags. They work great to reduce the solder fly larvae in a typical urban compost bin as well.

"Never get in a witting match with 'The Gren' when weather is involved."
Q. What do you do with a 10mph wind at your 6 o'clock while pedaling N bound Hwy 1 in heavy weather?
A. You blindly continue north bound.
B. You turn around at Swanton Rd and put that 10mph on you nose.
C. You hook right up Bonny Doon and avoid the weather all together.
