It has been a roller coaster of bike swapping since the ice man. Lets recap. I bought a Mamasita to replace my Fisher Supercaliber. I wanted something quicker lighter faster. Loved the bike. Sold it to build a 69er. Built the 69er Top Fuel, loved the bike, questioned my math equations and slack head tube, then got a sponsorship deal with Voodoo. Took a full time job at Team Active for the summer months, decided Voodoo was a conflict of interest, bought another Salsa. That is where i am staying. I pressed a King Headset and will replace the head badge with some goofy stickers. That means I own it and have no intention of selling. That is the truth


Green Frame, Pink Wheels, Sick

Carbon and wide

XT front der. for rich people, XTR, more carbon

Road Work Horse, Cannondale System Six. My first road bike was a Cannondale R400 purchased from Alger Schwinn in Grand Rapids. I rode that bike for 2 years and enjoyed it. This 63cm dream machine rides smooth. I was worried about the aluminum stays but it handled pot holes and train tracks like a champ on yesterday's ride through historic Ionia with Bill G.

Still learning about SRAM Road Shifters. I like the feel

True Mountain Bikers ride SPD on their Road Bikes

There you have my finalized bike stable for 08. I slimmed it down, made some upgrades and simplified. There may be a single speed in my future but not until the stars are aligned.

Sweet Mama! Green, black, and pink! Sick combo! At least your helmet will match the rims!

Sram road shifters are awesome! You will never go back to Crappy or Shit-mano!

See you at the races!
