So yesterday when I was out riding in in San Juan, I went ahead of our little group and zipped through some of the single track. At one point I had stopped to wait for the rest of the guys. While I was waiting, there were a group of other riders resting near by. I greeted them and even chit-chatted about the trail.
But then one thing funny happend….one by one, each of the guys there started sizing me up. No not to fight, but they kept looking at my bike, the Fezzari Alta Peak and would look away like some sort of snob. I guess in their minds the Fezzari wasn’t quite as good as their Specialized StumpJumpers and Kliens….
Oh well…you get snobs in everything in life, sports, work, neighbors….What’s funny is, they can judge me all they want, its the rider that makes a bike great.

For New Year’s day I decided to hook up with couple of my buddies to ride a sweet trail called San Juan. Scott Finch, the owner of RPM Cyclery rode a Santa Cruz Blur LT. When we placed the two bikes in his truck, I couldn’t help but admire the similar top tube styling between the Fezzari Alta Peak and the his Santa Cruz.
Here’s one of the great views of the trail.
Just a friendly reminder that we all need to yield to each other.
Here’s a couple of shots of me fully enjoying the Fezzari Alta Peak. By the way, the Fezzari was truly amazing out on the trails today. It was perfect for XC riding we did.
Here’s the three amigos, RL (left), Scott(center), Michael (right)
We had a great time on the trails. No casualties. The only thing we did have a problem with was leaving the keys in the truck….Here’s Michael and Scott jimmy rigging the door to get in.
Yeah we’re finally here!

Yesterday a couple of my buddies, Paul and Rick and I took a leisure ride through Fullerton Loop to end out the year.
We had a great time, a couple of crashes…luckily it wasn’t me since I don’t have insurance….
Here’s Paul reinacting his face plant…
Tomorrow I’ll be heading out to a trail called San Juan with the owner of RPM Cyclery, Scott Finch. I’ll post the pics once I get back.
Yup, I’m pretty lucky that my youngest daughter LUVS to ride the trails with me. I hooked up my 1980′s Trailer Bike to the Ibex B-Series bike and we went out today for a few miles.
The Nightwing that SweetSkinz provided us have been pretty fun. So with the help of Priscilla, we headed out to the back alley to get some night shots and even a short video on how well the reflective tires work.
Here’s some shots of the Ibex B-Series bike at night with the SweetSkinz Nightwing tires.
Here’s my Redline 925, Fixed gear baby! It too also is wrapped with the Nightwing tires. Flash from the camera lights up the tires.
Now here’s the video. Just Right CLICK and Save to your PC.
I learned this little trick from the LBS I moonlight at on the weekends. When ever they run out of bicycle detailing spray, they use furniture polish to clean the bikes and make them look purdy.
So I ran over to the local dollar store and got myself some cheapo furniture polish. I’m sure Pledge would have worked just as well but I was on a tight budget…of a dollar.
I took one of my dirty frames, a Giant Warp. Here’s a shot to show you how dirty it is.
Sprayed it all over the frame.
Tada! All clean..and it smells like lemons!
The photos doesn’t do the furniture polish any justice. But it’s worth a try isn’t it? I mean, it is only a dollar. Just remember don’t spray it on any braking surface since the furniture polish has some oil in it.
