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!”
2018 was a rough year for my riding. Winter weather kept me off the bike last year. Less so because it was “bad” weather, and more because I simply didn’t have the right clothes for the conditions. By the time … Read the rest “What’s Coming in 2019”

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”
