Black Diamond Loop

There is a new connector loop at BD, and we put together a really nice 10 mile ride. Pat's back was blown, so Nick and I added an extra set of hills just for fun!

Frankenbike, Fury, Resurrection

John put the Fury together with a bunch of parts from various sources. 105 rear der., old Schwinn gold seat, grinded big chain ring, triple-c fork, Franken-weld frame. It's cool, it's heavy, it's no longer Fury, it's FRANK!

Franken-Fury in Black/White

Most of the parts came from John, a few from me, some from a few others...welded by Brian's old neighbor Jammer. Now there is an extra bike for anyone who needs one, and nice one for Osborne I would think. Olympus E-P3, Grainy Film Art Mode.

Franken-Fury in Color

Color pix of the recently resurrected Fury, now called Frank. Shot with Olympus E-P3.

Dirt, Work, Jump

Work/Jump Day at J & B's. I haven't jumped my bike in a long time, this step up was pretty easy to manage though. Shot with Lumix Weather-Proof camera, not real impressive performance.

12 Steps..., I just took a bunch of pictures of my new tire. ...If I was in my right mind I might say I need a 12 step program...but seriously isn't this a really cool tire, and worth photographing and sharing with the world? It's a Nevegal!!!!!

CX Anyone?

There was a time when Thursday Night Riders did CX...anyone for a little cross? I need to learn how to do the barrier bunny hop! This is the winner of the Pro/Cat 1 & 2 race at today's MFG Cyclocross race at Mountain Meadows Farm in North Bend.

A Couple Pics from August 18, 2011

Brian's attempt on the steep up, and up and's hard to get pictures to show the difficulty of this. Brian did make it after a few attempts, I almost got up on it. We spent a few minutes on a log ride as well, again I got up on it and had to wheelie drop off, Brian made the whole thing and new gal Jo got the little up and over with some practice. Jo dusted us all off in a final dirt road sprint to the cars! Either she is really fast or we have officially gotten old...

Osborne, John, Brian, Zack, Myself

Partial shuttle tonight, good ride! Hey shout out to all you Thursday Night Riders, we need your extra parts to build the Fury. I have the frame at John's, he has a fork, I have a stem. I think John said he has brakes and a headset. So, bring me or John your extra parts, and then that will be an extra bike! It's being built as a DH style as much as possible.

Muddy July 17th

Western Washington is really wet this July, Brian and I had a great ride none the less. Osborne loop, hit some snow, a few trees down, great views, sweet trail, etc, etc.

Thursday Night @Ashford

Brian and John have built an incredible set of trails. The best "secret" in the Northwest. Good night! Brian, Big-Juan, Nick, Pat, Jake and myself. Nick fell over half a dozen times trying to hurt himself and finally succeeded, I had a collision with a tree that was real close to being bad news, pizza, beer and Jody's exquisite rhubarb cobbler!
