This blog features new additions to the Galleries. If you want to know when the Current Classic, Singlespeed, Cyclocross or Working Bike Galleries receive updates, you can check back here, "follow" this blog by using the link below right, or subscribe to this blog's RSS feed.

Most of the time, I'll highlight one of the new entries from the batches - don't take that to mean it's better or the others are worse. It's just that when I went to post those entries, one caught my attention at that time and place.

This won't be my main venue for online nattering - ride reports, technical stuff and whatever tangents capture my brain will show up over on the "Ramblings" blog, so you ought to wander over there. If you want to see what I've been writing about, there's a feed down at the bottom of this page which has the most recent posts from that blog.

If you have found your way here looking for things about Rivendell Bicycle Works (, I am the moderator of the RBW Owner's Bunch group over on google groups. That is a discussion of Rivendell bicycles and their products, but you can learn more about that here.

Meditations on Motorism

In the middle of retiring the old computer upon which all of the submissions and content resided.  Which means while I wrangle the data and tame the new digital device, I need to rely upon others for content.  The quality of this article makes it easy - especially while Bike to Work Day is hopefully still on everyone's mind.

The article is not quite as inflammatory as the headline would suggest. And please, I know that there are a ton of very oblivious cyclists out there.  But, the stakes are high.  Those of us who use a bicycle for daily transportation don't have the luxury of replacement body panels and a respray, should we get tapped.  Clearly, there are responsibilities for all parties, and may everyone live to a ripe old age.
