Sam's frame - shiny! + some Flagstaff paddling.

Beautiful! a gleaming piece of human interactive kinetic sculpture getting ready to go to get some custom gravy at Spectrum powder works www.spectrumpowderworks.com if you get a bike from me and you request custom work, this is where it goes, at extra cost, of course - the sky is the limit and the customer deals directly with the artists to create a unique piece.
Man, it took me a long time to get this out, but it sure is nice! it's a 650B built around an 80mm travel fox 29er fork. i have been slow lately, my back has been absolutely killing me at & below my spinal fusion & i have had to take many stretching breaks to get through the day. I think i over did myself recently........

final checks.

still a little crusty & ready for some file action. a nice braze!

the first thing i do every morning to go to work is find my shoes - i throw them where ever i may be when my feet hurt too bad to wear them any more, which usually signals the end of the work day..........

I still felt too worked from my last handcycle ride to want to go again, so Denise & I went for a paddle on Lake Mary, just down the street from our house - not bad, huh?

The Ospreys are back.

Lastly, we saw Brad Dimock on the maiden voyage of the "Glen Canyon" , which he had just finished building - very beautiful, had to appreciate in this picture, for sure. it will look right at home on the mighty Colorado River.

That's all for now, folks! enjoy, Garro.
