Two Wheels - Six Strings

Random news and thoughts about various two-wheeled projects and music, especially my band, Skull Full Of Blues.

Y'Know, I am NOT FOND of Snow...

and yet, it just keeps falling.





I took the Pink Snow bike to the coffee shop, this morning. I just didn't feel like swapping out to the chained-up wheels on the Miami Vice bike, so I took today as a good opportunity to test out the SnowCat-rimmed wheels.







Other than having a City of Denver snowplow spray me down on the way by (i.d. #o630060 CO, and I didn't appreciate your attitude when I pointed out that you could have lifted the plow as you went by me, jerk), I had a good ride.

On the way back, the temperatures had risen enough, and it was sunny enough, that the roads were kinda sloppy. The intersections were very slushy,









and I had to stop a couple of times and push. Other than that, the bike performed really well. (Even better when I remembered that I could shift gears. I'm so used to a fixed gear...)





Even the entry to my own driveway is treacherous.


In a totally unrelated note, my dog got a new chew toy for Christmas:

I'm pretty sure he likes it. (Thanks, Sean!)
