Cross season is well off, bike projects are coming and going, brewing has started up again and winter is coming way too fast.
I started working at a new bike shop, Ichi Bike in Des Moines. http://ichibike.com/ We do all kinds of cool stuff, but mainly specialize in custom vintage bikes. Its a very cool scene, and its not another one of those big $$$ franchise bike shops. Very laid back setting, we work on all types of bikes, and no BS. Here's a couple bikes that we have built:
Cross Season is going great. Just made the big jump to Cat 2 and what a jump. Here's a couple and results throughout the season so far.
|A couple wins so far, and several podiums. Its going great so far!|
|My Puch Maxi is really screaming now. 70cc reed kit, VM20 carb, custom intake, Aftermarket pipe, clutch springs, soft compound tires...51mph! The motorcycle club here at ISU was holding a parking lot time trial so me and another buddy brought our peds and raced. Made some people mad that day. I believe I finished with the 2nd or 3rd fastest time of the day. There were cbr600's, alcohol burning quads, camel joes racing sport bikes etc. It was pretty fun, once I actually had gas in my tank. Note... make sure you have a full tank before trying to race.|
|More to come!|
