Folks, short post today due to Interbike. Wanted to give you a couple quick updates and a give you an idea of what the next week or two might look like. Read on for updates on the Clif Bar Team Chili Con Crosso's, Selma, the virtual road bike build, and a quick thank you to Chris King.
Clif Bar Team bikes are in the house. Just going through QC. Should be in stock later this week.
Selma - a few were raced this past weekend and reports are leaking out. For all you road fans, the Selma is a mtn bike. Sorry road bike lovers. Don't fret, we haven't forgotten you. I'll post up some road stuff after Interbike because I have a few good discussion topics to share.
Virtual Road Build - Parts are gathered. Wheels are built. Final build will happen today, tonight and possibly tomorrow. I had hoped to do a cool photoagraphy segment on this, but due to Interbike and timing, it just can't happen. However, I am taking this bike to Colorado later this week on my way to Interbike and I hope to ride in the mountains a bit. Look for some photo's. Until then, here are few component shots.
I'd really like to send a shout out to Chris King Components. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. CK watched the virtual road bike build happening and offered up headset and hubs for the build. I figured since they were offering to help with the build, I'd ask for something special like the 3 color headset and matching pewter road hubs. Its so nice working with folks like this. It's even nicer knowing I'll likely never have to work on the headset or hubs again. They are perfect choices for the virtual road build. I also admire King Components for their commitment to the environment. They are a smaller company leading and pushing a bigger industry. Thank you.

Growing up as a Minnesota farm boy, I developed an appreciation and love for land and open space. This appreciation has fostered two passions, cycling and photography. Both of these passions provide freedom, encourage me to explore and foster creativity. More importantly though, my journey with a bike and a camera reminds me that the world is big and I am small.
