Smell The Dairy Air



For some reason Da Blog's "check engine soon" light has come on and is currently unable to upload fotos so please bear with me as I bring to you some plain old fashion text until I can work out the kinks.

Just two days after the NORBA circuit came to a close, Rad Ross and I found ourselves aboard a plane to Wisco to visit the fine folks at Trek who make our bikes and lifestyles possible.



Words cannot fully explain the feeling you get when you visit a factory like Trek and meet the people that pour their energy into a product that they are so passionate about. This passion is evident in how the entire company is organized and in the products they produce.

No Zap isn't paying me to say this, nor is it because their name is all over my chest and car...The killer food and wine that filled our bellies all week has nothing to do with it either, it is straight up the real deal and I am blessed just to be associated with it in some way.

I have like a million things to get up and share with you all. Everything from our day in the testing lab breaking wheels to some huge personal news that has left me on cloud nine.... More to follow.

You need to come ride with me while you are back. I'll help you gather bicycles if you don't have your own with you. You can get a hold of me via the mayor at the gen store or at showbikes. Hope to talk to you soon!

It takes a publicist for this news? Yikes. You'd better be leading the Tour next year.

Yo man. That test lab is cool stuff. They have that place dialed with organization. People often see Trek as a big machine (a lot in Boulder were italian frames ooze out every inch of 36), but it's a solid company with real people and amazing rides.
