Mt Tam, no, Paradise.
Woke up this morning knowing I had to get some mileage in on the new bike, but I didnt know what to do. I wanted to ride somewhere I knew, somewhere where I know every crack in the roads, alternate routes, etc. Paradise loop. Easy, fast, I know it. So at 6:30 this morning I get a message from Morgan saying, dial that new baby of your in, come ride Mt Tam with us. Leave at 9. I had never had...
Yes I know today is Saturday. For some reason I woke up to my cat hitting me in the face, and the only time she does that is when Im late. So I snap up before it hits me, its Saturday. She was just hungry, lil bugger. Friday was very much like Thursday for me, a lot of time spent in the east bay. Spent a lot of time on Bart My company has started getting more clients in Oakland and...
The last one for this week. Anton Bombing Bush St.
I’m just saying today was beautiful. Clear skies, hot weather, people were out. I guess with it being so sunny and nice, those people who never ride bikes decided to hop on theirs today. I’m just being mean, sorry, but today I did witness 2 bicycle crashes, both on fixed gear brakeless bikes, nothing to crazy, but funny. The first one happening in front of 717 Market Street at...
Up We Go. . .
I love Skyscapers. I love the views they offer. This one in the picture above is 555 California. Not many people can access this building. Its a privately owned and locked down building. Granted it is the Bank Of America Building. 52 stories high, built in 1969. 555 California is currently San Francisco’s tallest office building, and I mean when you get to the top and you look out toward...
The Klein & Ebay / Bike Recap
That is my bike. I’m sorry, That is what my bike is suppose to resemble. As far as my bike, well its still sitting at Bay Area Bikes in the back somewhere. This Klein has turned into one of my biggest investments, and its been a terrible experience. I’ve gone though quite a few bikes, but its been simple, the transaction, the purchasing of upgraded parts, but the bikes have been...
BMW and BART
San Francisco is about to have its underground mass transit system overhauled by BMW. The Bay Area Rapid Transit System (BART) is the fifth-largest urban train system in the country, but its fleet is the oldest. That’s why, according to reports, the transit commission has turned to BMW DesignworksUSAto give it a full overhaul. The contract reportedly includes redoing the exterior and...

Jokella (Klein) and Jasmine (Masi) Post for a shot. Am expecting to have the Klein up and running soon. Very soon. Decided on naming the Klein Jokella, as it means Jewel in both African and American. Appropriate I think.
Around the Financial District
I cant win
So after the last fiasco with a Klein, it being in horrible shape, the fork was glued to the frame etc, I tried again for another one. This one being a 2004 Q-Pro. I bought it off Ebay, fell in love once I had came across it. I received it via UPS yesterday along with my new road wheelset. To my shock, the guy who sent it had decided to just place tube protectors around the frame, toss it into a...
