Congrats! gastro is a Mountain Bike Action rock star!!

It wasn’t enough that highrevs gets a photo in the last issue of MBA. I just got the April issue in the mail and what’s up with this? - - gastro makes the cover of the April issue and highrevs again too!!!






Seems the NC TGMBG is lightin’ up the media these days. What’s next - - an appearance on Good Morning America?

Way to go guys!!!

I'm not a foam guy. How do I take starbucks on the trails and avoid that frothy mess that really grinds my gears?

Awesome. You know, I don't read any of these bike magazines so for about 30 seconds I thought this was real.

I will, however, write an article on frappucino/trail etiquette.

MBA has declined so much over the years I guess they decided to add a little Gas-tro to pep things up.

Ya know, I never realized Grizzly Adams was a mountain biker, let alone posting on BF.

Congrats G.

Give me a day or two to render it better and I'll shoot you a good Illustrator EPS file. That was a quick-n-dirty I did for here for junkyard's benefit; but for a shirt, it needs to be done properly.

'66 would probably call it dinner..

If I have the chance to do a cover shot in real life, I hope I get a more attractive model to work with. Maybe one that's less hairy and has really big personalities.

When it's road kill isn't that fast food? And the flicker of road flares is not the same as candlelight . . . .
