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.

Bay Area Bike Theft Victims Band Together

This one from a story by KPIX Channel 5 -

One slightly "optimistic" bike owner (at least as far as a rack which "can't be moved"), and there's no way that a 12 year old Bianchi CDI (which sold for under a grand when new) is worth "several thousand dollars" - honestly, $300 would be about right for one. 

I wish they had given a bit more detail about the bike theft reporting websites.  So, here's that info:
