It was around the time I was meticulously scooping sand and other crud out of my rear deraileur for the fortieth time that I came to the conclusion: I think a lot. About lots of things, sure, but specifically bikes. Here I was, covered in grease, surrounded by tools, lovingly cleaning my commuter and thinking about how I couldn't wait to ride to work the next day, boy do I love this Shimano 600 Tri-Color group, I really need to get the Takhion to a welder and I can't wait to try out the command shifters that I have yet to mount on another bike I am building.
All at once.
So, here I am. Writing about it. I'm going to rant about my commute while keeping track of my miles and how many times I almost get killed every day, talk wistfully about the bikes I wish to own, post pictures of shiny bikes and parts that make me happy, and link to a news article or two. Or at least I will if I don't get distracted by the wheels I need to build.
EDIT: Please feel free to link back here, link to posts, or use any of my photos! Just please give credit where credit is due.
If I have linked to a photo that belongs to you and you'd like me to remove it, please let me know, and I'm sorry!
Edit II: Sometimes I sell things. Sometimes I trade things. Send me an e-mail if you're interested in either. aeyoqen [at] gmail [dot] com.
