I left in the dark on Velvet today, with the bag carrying my lunch box and work clothes.
Down to HB Power Plant at PCH.
Then up to CM garage/shop.

So i was curious about no-hands on this bike with the uneven weight, etc.
The WF HD wheels, really help balance out the bike/load, and straighten out the line.
Options are awesome; favorites are for good reasons.:D
I think I'll ride something different tomorrow.:cool:

We had some big wind roar through town about 2am, I woke up to this in our neighborhood.

Our little town got slammed with some straight line winds, 85 mph +

Still better than what Dallas got.

While I was at work, my bride sent me photos of tree damage in our backyard.

I got home from work and played with my chainsaw for just over 5 hours and created this.

Also, a candid photo of me and my trusty polesaw. My bride Karen tells me that I have no business being on roofs, climbing trees to limb them and precariously balancing on ladders to limb trees at 59 years of age. Perhaps she is right, I am pretty sore.

I've been curious as to the runaway popularity of cyclocross / gravel bikes, and today threw together a completely free rendition from parts taken from roadside finds. Most of bike is a bike shop quality (given local shop label on frame) low end Taiwanese '80s road bike - "Jetter". Wheelset and 700 x 38c tires from a nice '90s Univega hybrid. Crankset and pedals from a low end 1980 Peugeot road bike. I used the Jetter since it was smaller. Took it on a rigorous maiden run in the hilly woods near my home. It performed really well for what it is, and I kind of get the concept now. Drop bars really helped with climbing. Unfortunately, while I didn't crash it in the hills, I almost did on pavement, during the "hands off" test. At the very least, I have some bent forks. Given the condition of the original rear wheel and left pedal, and chainrings, I wouldn't be surprised if the frame is bent as well.

Man those trampolines take off like a kite. That's a pretty good 5 hour pile. I say keep climbing on roofs and trees - it's those scary ladders that will hurt ya. Glad your place didn't get tore up too bad.

Stopped at the Halloween Party at Palo Verde Park. Got to see some great costumes and made some new friends.

Hung out with Pokémon and the Hulk. 6'er of Dos Equis mixed in with the candy buckets is a nice touch.
