BlastRadius is awsome!

Just wanted to thank Henry (publically) for being super generous and helping me swap out my crank for a new compact! I did a 50 mile ride up in marin today, mount tam park and the seven sisters, ~4500 ft of climbing and was glad I had it so thanks again and we've got a real nice and knowledgeable person on our hands!

You haven't seen anything yet.. wait until you see him coordinate a jersey order. You'd think he moonlights as a cat herder!!

Thanks. It was a pleasure meeting you and getting your bike upgraded.

I have to have an outlet for my OCD and bikes are better than a lot of other stuff.
I think between BBM, Mhendricks and myself, we could have a pretty good high-end bike shop

I think maybe I like building them more than riding them.

I think lately I have been working on them more than riding them

Translation: I think I am going to get burned by some of these characters on our next ride

I just finished a bike for my sister and will be putting the finishing touches on my Fiance bike after which, I'll be overhauling one of my bikes. After that, I may venture into the boneyard and possibly pull out a MTB project. At some point, I'll repaint a couple of frames I have to build into a more classic road bike and a fixed gear town bike. I also have a TT bike in mind and another wheelset to build. It's going to be a busy summer!

Blame it on Montebello. You move fast when you make a decision.
