I wanted a little summer project that wouldn’t take me all that long, or cost all that much money. I decided I’d track down an older Silca Pista pump and bring some new life back to it. I tracked one … Read the rest “Rebuilding a Vintage Silca Pista Pump”
I hinted at this awhile back, but ever since last year, I’ve been sloooooowly working on building a Guerrilla Gravity Pedälhead.
The Salsa Bucksaw I’ve been riding is a great, fun bike…but leaves a bit to be desired in Pisgah … Read the rest “Guerrilla Gravity Pedälhead”
I apologize if you’ve tried accessing my website within the past month, only to be greeted by annoying messages from the server. I was changing servers (consolidating a few things) and because I’m an idiot, there were a few steps … Read the rest “Oops!”

Before you go any farther, realize that this isn’t your typical PMBAR race recap post. No way I’m fit enough for that event. I did volunteer to run the Sassafras Gap checkpoint for the race, however. The checkpoint was far … Read the rest “Pisgah Mountain Bike Adventure Race (PMBAR) 2018”
This post is several months in development. I’ve been tossing around getting a teardrop camper for several years now. Don’t get me wrong, I love backpacking and bikepacking, but I actually do more car camping. And I’m just not that … Read the rest “Hiker Trailer Teardrop Camper”
Today seemed like a great day to hide in my basement and work on bikes. In doing a drivetrain swap a couple months ago, I discovered that my hub bearings were gritty. I’m probably a little gun shy over reports … Read the rest “Hope Pro II EVO Fatsno Hub Bearing Replacement”
While the Rockshox Bluto fork I’ve been using on my Salsa Bucksaw since day 1 has been effective, it’s been a bit underwhelming. It worked fine on my local xc trails and winter rides, but when I’d ride more rowdy … Read the rest “Wren Suspension Fork for Fatbikes”
