it is, thanks! It's A Frank Loyd Wright Prarie style house. The trim has since been painted from that pic We love it.

I tried (and failed) to get a pic of what it looks like at nighttime.

Aha, so that was what all the fuss was about on the Amsterdam-Rhine Canal? Did a 20-mile ride around Houten and Bunnik yesterday with my girl and wondered what was going on.

Mais oui. Just some "elitists" (in the words of the idiot that disturbed the oxbridge boat race the day before) doing a slave's sport! makes for some pretty pics though.

Almost got me a couple of them "elitists" yesterday too: coming down that bridge at a rather decent speed two young fella's in very loud ties stepped onto the cycle path right in front of us. Just missed them. Would have made for quite a colorful accident though.

Jeff - you'll have to join us for the for the Sovren vintage races at Pacific Raceways this summer. They've had a 1971 Jackie Stewart F1 car there the past few years - my absolute favorite to watch the entire weekend.







Scott - I have to see the Senna movie; is it available on DVD yet?

I'm there regarding Pacific Raceway this summer - I remember we talked about it/looked at your pics when I was out there for the Manastash Metric. Nice to see the pics again here (that shot of the Tyrrell is awesome - and I bet it sounded great, too)

We'll talk about a date and I will plan to attend (as long as it's not the first week in July - I'll be in MN with my buddy, his family and hopefully get some riding in with the MN BFers, too).

Our Sunday Night Pub Crawl Ride didn't stop at any pubs last night. Instead, we had an Easter Egg* Hunt in a park, then converted a local warehouse into a mini-velodrome and did some racing... on kids' bikes.

(*Egg = Beer)

Oh wow. Consider me officially jealous! There are two small Frank Lloyd wright homes near me, both completely hidden by trees and privately owned.... darned privacy. Does it have furniture designed by him? How original is the interior of the home?

Anyway, congrats on the job and home.

Tracey Owen Station, if memory serves. Is that your recently-completed Falcon? If so, a few more detail pics would be greatly appreciated

FWIW, I love riding the BG/SRT in the spring/summer. Not this weekend (BF bike-transfer facilitation taking place on Saturday), but next one for sure, assuming this weather holds!

Great photo

Got some new handlebars from craigslist: Soma Lauterwasser. Going to play around with the position of the brake levers a little bit before I tape up the handlebars.

Thanks Matt . To be clear, the home isn't a flw home but inspired by his prairie house design apparently. Built around 1911. The interior is original with built in glass cabinetry and interesting woodwork . I'll post better pics when I get time.

^ those bars from cl you got are incredible.

hey, jeff, here's the falcon at green lake


it was so much fun to build up, i wrote a long winded build post here.

now i feel forced to upgrade my other bike so as to not betray my old love. i can see this become a fierce competition... and a damnation for my budget.

Ok, I understand. Still very cool though. I noticed it does not have gutters, which was definitely a Frank Lloyd Wright no no. It's a great looking house no matter who designed it.

Haven't ridden the bike much lately. Instead I got some gardening done in my yard. Planted some perennials Saturday,



Got them watered on Sunday



Then I got the annuals planted in the raised bed next to the house.... 1 gross (144 plants) of annuals.



That picture was taken at midnight shortly after I finished.

It's a great time. If you get to Fort Worth on a Sunday night with your bike, and lights, come join us.

That's not just a maxim, it's a haiku!
