Brain Fart: smorgasbord

I remembered I needed to post on the blog today as the in-house schedule has rotated back to me. Most times my rides to and from work are full of interesting thoughts (at least to me), but of course my mind was pretty blank today, except I needed to hurry to work with the coffee in my bag, the office was fresh out. So rather than force some topic maybe a bit of an update about a few things are in order.

650B
This project is still going. The wheels have been built, with Hope hubs, Velocity rims. Tires came from Kirk Pacenti. Kirk worked with Rock Shox to get us a Pearl 3.3 rear shock which should reduce the travel on a Santa Cruz Heckler enough to keep the larger 650B tire from contacting the seat tube under full compression. We should also see a 650B fork from White Brothers soon. I can’t wait.

New Job

I’m climbing the corporate ladder here at Dirt Rag. New Title: Partnerships. What does that mean? Ad sales, sponsorships, partnerships(duh), a bit of marketing, product testing and writing for the magazine. Lotsa new hats to wear, right now it is a black knit cap, as the office is freaking cold, temperature never got above 25 or so today, outside that is.

Custom Frame

I just started working with Todd Ingermanson who is Black Cat Bicycles. I saw his work at NAHBS. He has some very cool ideas, and we plan on a 29er hardtail with his pivoting drop outs. Looks like I should be getting some pretty sweet parts from DT to complete the build, more on that later.

Lance’s Shop

I’ve never been a huge fan of Lance, but this news has me rethinking things.
