Instant gratification…

I posted the above photo yesterday on Facebook. I was busy building a set of cross wheels for a friend and preparing the rims and tires with a layer of Vittoria Mastik. I thought the image of the fresh Challenge Grifo and the can of cement was a nice composition. Still do. My buddy Rob […]

Biketoberfest…

If Biketoberfest is in September, should it be called Biketemberfest? Regardless, this year’s Biketoberfest will be happening this Sunday September 25 on Center Ave. in Fairfax.
