Protect Your Frame

A while back I saw a really sweet Frame Bag designed with the Colorado Flag – and two thoughts came to mind. a) Would that fit on my bike (I ride a small frame)? b) What’s all that Velcro going to do to the finish of my carbon frame? After some digging I was able to find a smaller version of the frame bag called a 1/2 bag, but the whole idea of sand and crushed granite (Colorado’s dirt) didn’t sit well with me.

When did you start cycling?

I got the nod form Singletracks.com for a photo of me from the 90s – this is form the 1997 NORBA Nationals Big Bear Lake, CA. I took 3rd at this race.

The ZZYZX Fork was one of the first tripple-clamp forks on the market and made by Dan Hanebrink – this was an amazing time to be Downhill Racing!

Photography with Action Cameras

The GoPro is a very tiny action “video” camera with a very tiny sensor and a very tiny lens. It will in no way compete with a $5,000 DSLR with an equally expensive $5,000 lens attached. It’s not even going to compete with a $500 DSLR/Lens Kit. It’s just not going to happen! And by understanding the limitations, will also set acceptable expectations.

DIY Energy Bars!

A competitive cyclist’s relationship with food can be summed up in one word: intense. Our love of food runs deep and plays a role in almost every aspect of cycling. A hearty meal is the reward for a long day in the saddle.
