 More stylish on the bike than off the bike. #wheeltalk #wheeltalkroad #panache #jockeypose  Headed to my first day back at work and already wishing I were rolling out for a ride. #wheeltalk #wheeltalkroad #outsideisfree  Go fast to beat the rain! #wheeltalk #outsideisfree #wheeltalkroad
 As I sit and reflect on the past year and a half in Austin I am thankful to be alive, I am thankful to finally be out of the deep hole known as depression, I am thankful for all my family and friends that stood by me the entire time, I am thankful to be riding a bike again and finding myself unconsciously smiling. Happy turkey day everyone! #wheeltalk #wheeltalkroad #thanksgiving #thankful  "Chillin with my homies on the West side. West side, bringing out my best side."  #LogicalLogicLyrics #wheeltalkroad #wheeltalk #outsideisfree

Getting Dirty With Valence Bicycles


Two weeks ago, while I was in California, I had the opportunity to test a ride from Valence Bicycles and chat with Shawn the brains behind it all.

From what I could tell on the internet it was a bike with race-like geometry that could accommodate 32mm tires and had disc brakes. I figured a typical “gravel grinder” but looks are deceiving, and the cover of a book rarely tells its story. Read More


Time Away. Time to Return.


Moving to a new location with every intent to call it home is never easy. To say these two years in Austin have been challenging would be an understatement.

Creative Cleaning With Carbon Pro Sports


Living in an apartment has its pro’s and con’s. As a cyclist one of the major con’s for me is trying to clean my bike. I’m not a fan of the “shower wash” because I’d have to spend an additional 10-20 minutes cleaning all the grime out of the tub, and unfortunately I live in an apartment complex with no hose hook-ups. I could take my bike to a local shop and pay them to wash it, but that can get pricey over time, and it’s not that hard to clean a bike yourself. The cheapest way to get around this apartment dilemma is getting a hand pump from Home Depot and filling it with hot tap water to do the cleaning myself.

Not NAHBS But Still NAHBs

A few weeks back while everyone was posting their NAHBS write-ups I spent the afternoon with local custom frame builder Matt Mowat of Paramour Bicycles. It was a good afternoon with great conversation ranging from bikes, bike history, frame building, beer, and places to ride in Austin.
