Gone Fishin'


I'm not actively blogging here anymore. But if you got here because you were searching for something about bikes, you might want to check out my latest project, Vermont Goldsprints. In summer of 2014, I bought a used goldsprints racing setup and have made it a mission to get more bikes in more people's faces by putting on fun races in unexpected places. Come join me!


Bright Bike

Most of my efforts of late have been focused on Vermont Indoor Cycling and other pressing matters, but I'm still alive.

But I have done a complete teardown and rebuild of my winter commuting bike, soon to be deployed:

I painted the frame, fork, and fenders with Hi-Vis and then added reflective tape accents all around.

I picked up a couple of these crazy light kits on Woot that I'm using. I have the wheel lights (color change and red POV display) on my cross bike right now but I'll be moving those over to this bike as well. I have installed the light strands, as you can see here:

I put the battery packs for those in the seat pack. It's easy enough the squeeze the pack in the right places to turn them on and off. So that's that. The new bike lanes on Williston Road have made my commute safer and more enjoyable, with far fewer left-turn conflicts than my previous route.
