Everyone can use a 3/8 ratchet.

That's a wrap.

There's something I find very enjoyable about wrapping bars. Bottom to top. Inside to outside. Keep just enough tension and even overlap. Don't forget the piece behind the brake lever. No gaps or lose edges on the curves. Cut the end at a taper. One width of tape at the top. Then do the second side the same as the first.

Wildlife sighting...

Or maybe just a sign of some wild times???

Small beachcomber find

I found this little bag on a recent ride.  I think the tag has the owners name on it - Vera Bradley.  I might try to if see is in the phone book and return it to her.

Beachcomber Report

It has been a long time since the beachcomber made a report.  Not that I haven't found anything, just nothing worth reporting.
Lately I have found some good time to ride with my son.  He's excited and wanting to look up rules about Jr. racing.  That excites and scares me.
Then just today, I found 2 QED cookbooks. (From WQED Pittsburgh).  In no time at all I'll be a fatter and happier Pitsburgher.

What a day to get out and ride!

This past week has just been a great week to get out on the bike.  I started the week riding my cross bike.  Then for the past three days, I pulled out my old Bianchi - now a fixie.

It's little league season

There's nothing like the smell of natchoes at 9:00 am on a Saturday.  Every game - win or lose - my son tells me how much fun it was.  That make it all good.
