    Evelo Omega - 200 Mile Review

    No one keeps up with everything. If nothing else, I was personally happy to see this… it got me thinking, and sure enough the date struck me. No apologies would be expected by anyone, I think. You missed a hell of a good guy.

    Creo 2 - Road Spec now finished

    Sixty degrees tomorrow in February! Fifteen and a half to you guys, but good anywhere.

    Evelo Omega - 200 Mile Review

    It’s one year today that we lost Alaskan. I was thinking about that while riding this afternoon. I have gotten so much enjoyment and involvement out of my seven plus years hanging around here, and guys like him were central to that. Amazingly, the group is still holding together though some of...

    Creo 2 - Road Spec now finished

    Damn, that is a hell of a good looking rig! I do love my Creo, was able to get out today in very unusually warm weather for these parts.

    Creo rear thru axle spinning out

    Duly noted on the Loc-tite, Mike. I'll have that axle and the threaded part on the frame looked at.

    Creo rear thru axle spinning out

    Anyone seen this? Last fall I finished a ride and when I picked the bike up and put it on the car rack, the rear wheel came loose and lodged right up into the frame. The thru axle had spun right out of the threads and when I put the bike onto the rack try the axle fell right out. Never saw that...

    Finally, a decent day and an opportunity to use it. Got out for the first time in a month to a sunny 45 degrees and a very happy 30 miles. The next two days are more of the same, and then the cold and more snow come back again. It’s been either frigid, snow covered or both for four weeks around...

    NH ebike trail ban bill.

    My brother has a house right on the Northern Rail Trail near Enfield. Omer and Bob’s is a very popular Specialized dealer close by in Lebanon and there are a hell of a lot of ebikes on that trail, ridden by mostly middle aged types and old bastards like myself. I’ve ridden it many times and...

    On a family visit trip down to Charlotte, NC… of course the Creo came with me. Took at very nice ride on a brand new section of the Little Sugar Creek Greenway trail that runs right down into South Carolina. Extremely attractive system, some very nice bridges along the creek here and there. Hope...

    There’s that good looking Trance, or Stance, or whatever it is… really nice bike

    Logs

    Over at the Reddit Gravelcycling discussion they’ve been having a pretty good time posting pics of bikes with logs, for some reason. Why not drop a few here? I’m sure some of you PNW folks know what a tree looks like, fallen or otherwise.

    Man, you guys keep some immaculate fat bikes! Beauties, both of them.

    Cooler, more Fall like day today, around 50 farenheit, cloudy. Friend and I rode the Warren County Bikeway, a very popular paved trail in the Lake George area of NY. Poor color this year around here! By now things should be peaking and the whole mountain ridge along LG village is still green...

    specialized creo 2

    <<Is this a good thing or a bad thing>> Good thing! Don’t want a carbon bike, my current Creo (and virtually every other bike I’ve owned in the last thirty years or so) has been alloy, and I’m just used to it. Less cost is fine, too. Really, while I like this new version, I might have a hard...

    Just a few pictures from a superb riding day in Washington County, NY, just along the Vermont state line… probably my favorite area to ride. I had my Creo, Chris was on his acoustic Scott mountain bike, and we had a terrific day. Temps topped out at 78 degrees on October 2!

    specialized creo 2

    Very interesting re the alloy frame reference. That would definitely get my attention.

    Best eBike Rack for Tesla Model 3

    1UpUSA is just about always the answer to this one. Thule has some excellent stuff too, but I don’t know how you can beat the 1Up for overall quality, ease of use and design. Edit: Possibly issue with the back fender and that taillight. Someone here will be able to address that aspect of it...

    Today was supposed to be new Creo announcement day!

    Apparently the geometry has changed up a bit as well, along with more adventure oriented gearing, 11-50 and such on the cassette. They are really stepping back from the road centric thing and going all gravel. Certainly appeals to me, as I go from tarmac to dirt/gravel all the time.
