Ok. I’ve been super busy. So busy that my site has been in a holding pattern. The control tower was awake, but the pattern was full Ghost Rider. As you flick back over the last nine days you’ll notice a different type of pattern. Bike love – or what I call “Bike Porn.” Yes, it’s a proper noun. If these beauties don’t make your heart flutter, you are obviously not getting enough exercise. Note to self, get more time on the saddle. Ok then. Ride oneth.
Ze Orca. The newest bike coming to my stable – very soon.
It’s the official bicycle of the world-class Euskaltel-Euskadi professional cycling team. Climbers did you say? The new oversized BB30 bottom bracket shell is bullet proof. I do hope the ‘noise’ from my current Orbea isn’t repeated with the new ride. I’ve kept my ear to the grind and most bike aficionados attribute Orbea’s commitment to constant improvement as a translation of rider demands.
Did someone say the Pyrénées? As if a mountain range that rises to almost 11,400′ … that forms a natural barrier between the Iberian peninsula and France … is something to climb?
Ok. Ok. Back to the Orbea. It’s stable, light and developed to meet Pro Tour demands. I’m not on the Pro Tour but it’s fun thinking about riding in the Pro Tour when on the Foothills Parkway (ha). Enough already. Soon – very soon.
Where was this kind of bike when I was a kid?
Friday’s were meant for ridin’ … and 110 miles later I was very tired. Nothing but images today folks – proof that even when tired, you can muster up a smile for the camera.
It’s here – at last. Bike PORN Friday’s. Looking ahead the theme for Friday is Bike PORN. What is Bike PORN? Well, it’s an “affinitas” for bike related bling to include bike gear, threads, trick-gadgets, cuties at races, and certainly bikes. Just go with the header and you’ve got the news – today is a “Bike PORN” day. Enjoy.
