I got Shabir's wheels all spun up & i'm gonna start building his lugged fork tomorrow, then his frame. this will be a cool bike, stay tuned........
also building some 40 hole tandem wheels for Jerry. i laced then last & they were still true after a "conservative" 30,000 miles!
i've also been trying to get out and enjoy the forest more after a really looooong winter - it snowed on the peaks a few days ago! time to try and whip my sorry ass into some resemblance of "shape" without blowing a arm joint. this picture is on a local trail me & my buddy Ty built back in the very early 90's and it got blown out for public consumption last year and became part of the Arizona Trail - cool!
a beautiful trailside bouquet with sulphur flower, claret cup hedgehog cactus, and daises.
Annie came along to cheer & jeer with her two critters. it was nice to get out with someone i did thousands of hours of mountain biking with in my previous life.
Flo dog looks on in disbelief as i crank up and over a toothy slot.
Dropping Sally as i slalom the forest. i never thought that someday i would mostly ride with dogs. oh well, they are always on time and they don't care what you ride!
