Coaster Brake Challenge - Race 3


We completed the third race of the COASTER BRAKE CHALLENGE on Sunday evening... well, some of us completed it, and others, myself included, succumbed to the heat and quit early.
Still, an awesome time... just wish it wasn't so hot in Chatsworth this time of year. I think I saw a Gorn that had died of thirst out there.

Enough of the bicycle stuff... Squareback project

Messerschmitt,squareback

Yep - behind that funky Messerschmitt is my Squareback. Have to push start it, and it doesn't idle so well, but it gets me back and forth reliably for now.

One Lap in Northridge


The first race of the Coaster Brake Challenge series seriously kicked my butt yesterday. I managed to finish one lap, but had rubber knee at the top of the climb. Geared too tall and out of shape. My bike went on under a couple of riders who'd had equipment faliure to do three more laps. I had a blast, and look forward to/dread the next race - a 6.8 mile out&back loop.
