Today I won't be riding my sweet new carbon bike.



Also, wind is 20+ mph, so wind chill is close to zero.

We do our own mechanical here but it's mostly just swapping suspension/radiators/condensers. No real diagnosing or block work.

Mmi is kind of a waste of money or at least a lot of the people we've hired from there have been clueless. Apprenticeships are the way to go when getting into a trade.

Today my commute had a flat so I took the tarck bike into work, hopefully it doesn't rain.

And it rained of course, been dry for almost two weeks but had to rain today. Was one of the sketchiest rides I've done in a while since the Kilo has just been used on the trainer for quite some time now and with a fresh rain, I had almost no traction. Rear wheel kicked out for a second when taking a corner.

Today I am working with Swift Industries on a new secret project. I also just did a frame paint and decal layout for another company. I have had such an amazing start to 2014 and I am so pumped on both of these projects.

Is it weird that I'm so happy for and proud of you guys? We've never even met! Kudos nonetheless.

Thanks Kaz! We're all like some sort of (slightly dysfunctional) family here so it makes sense.

It was an insane amount of work (which took about a month longer than expected) but Angie & I are really proud of how it turned out, especially considering we literally did everything ourselves. It's so crazy how what started as a small little online shop selling t-shirts back in 2009 turned into what you see in the pics.

It's much more than a "dream come true", it's a testament to what can be accomplished by setting goals and working your ass off around the clock to achieve them.

The BFSSFG community has always been really supportive of RG and we appreciate it 100%.
