Hi all,

Been almost a year since I last stopped by. Been a crazy year. But my bike collection has grown. My stable now includes 4 RANS bicycles, of the "crankforward" variety. First came the Cruz, next a Zenetik, then a Dynamik Duo (tandem affectionately known as the Big Blue Whale), and then came "Candy", a Street built with off road spec components and fork. I don't have enough time to ride them all, but my son and I are looking forward to warmer weather so we can get out on the tandem. I'll probably sell my Vision R40 recumbent, though I look for ways to homebuild it into a delta or tadpole trike.

It's been a long cold winter.

Also, since now I find myself unemployed and trying to venture out into doing something creative for a little extra money, so I started making graphics. It started when I saw all those silly stick figure families on the back of minivans and SUVs. I felt bad because it's just the three of us, and our son Jacob in heaven (he'd have been 8 this year). So I tried to figure out how to turn a tattoo design I wanted to get into a sticker for the back of our car so I could pay tribute to him as well as represent our family. One idea led to another and next thing you know I'm making all kinds of things and overflowing with creativity. Take a look at my site and let me know if there's anything I can make for you.
