LeMond & Shapleigh

Shapleigh was the last rider standing once LeMond's glow plugs warmed up on hwy 84. Sean Tucker, Erbe, and I were left licking our wounds after 5 hours.

Mt. Man

Apple and I forgot about the 6 Cols de Shiit Shiit on White House west bound. Notice the single armwarmer - this will become all the craze and soon all Steel Wüleurs will be doing it.

Gilbert Does the Triple - A Legend is Born

Phillippe Gilbert completes the triple by winning Amstel Gold, Fleche Wallone and Liege Bastogne Liege. Heroic! This guy represents pure Belgian race pedigree making the Schleck brothers look like little boys. Really though, they were helpless against a man on form - we still admire you Andy and Frank. Do your shit at the Tour.

Philippe Gilbert does it again! Back to back wins in the Amstel Gold, and now, La Fleche Wallone - sticking it hard on the Huy. Owning it. A new Belgian hero for the ages.

Nuff Said

Yes, We Are Fans of Campy...and That Means Eddy Too.

Are they losing steam? Is 11 really the new 10? What would Nigel (Spinal Tap) say? "Just make 10 lighter."

Gilbert Reigns Again! Amstel Gold 2011

Philippe Gilbert shows who's the boss on the Cauberg, though it was easy to root for Andy Schleck to pull it off. This is bike racing.

Steel Wül You Find It #4

Brent Marks (FF-P, BS, PA)found this hidden gem today while pedaling through the northern, central, and southern portion of the county. The first person to email us a picture of themselves in front of it will win a Steel Wül Musette Bag. Hint: Did Brent need a special hat for this ride?

Very Tight Nostalgic Piece

Loosely tied to cycling, yet this is just......well, moving. Filmed in SF, 1906 - 4 days before the quake. Suggest viewing in full screen. Note the guy riding the rails - distant relative to DougieFresh?

Doug E. Fresh found a hair-line crack on his Seven Axiom SL. Not to worry folks, this machine was repaired with in 72 hours (new head tube, down tube, & BB) and back on the road equipped with a new Edge fork 2.0. Oh so sweet! Seven - the Sustainable ride
