We had a mess of cabling and a lot of confusion with our phones, so I straightened it up. We have three phone lines. I named the lines by color, though they don't match actual colors. I always wanted to make labels that lie about color, for some perverse reason.

Called a snow day yesterday as the bus service was struggling to handle the weather... the not so little one was warming her toes after waiting 30 minutes for a bus that did not come.

Recently got this (off-topic) SS MTB - a Vicious Cycles Monolith made upstate in New Paltz. I've been riding it around a lot and plan to hit some local trails after the holidays.

My new toy, a CNC engraver. I'm attempting a move into the ADA signage business. In the meantime, I'm cutting all manner of designs into all manner of stuff and adding braille to all sorts of stuff that doesn't need it.

Great bikes. Congrats on yours.

Two of my bestest riding buddies race rigid Vicious mtbs.

Very, very well built. Nice handlers.

FWIW I just switched my Bob Brown ss mtb over to Maxxis Ardent 26"x2.40s.

Well worth the money, especially in loose gravel, mud and snow.

I went to a classic car dealership and saw this cool little on-topic detail on a gorgeous Quattorporte.

And some more proof that the greatest stuff on wheels comes from Italy.

Thanks, Grady. I am loving these Conti 26x2.3 tires so far. Even with huge rubber and heavy rims the bike is barely 22 lbs.
