New Single Speed, Garmin Edge, Motion Based, Spill, Zone




So I found a Single Speed on Craigslist and it is perfect, an ORANGE Ibis, with a 32x18 so I can spin my legs and not hurt my knee. No lockout on the fork but I will live for now, it was $300 and ready to ride so it was a hell of a deal.

I am so out of shape 20+lbs and I can't stay under my AT to save my life, so I have a long way to go. I got a Garmin Edge 305 . This is a great little device, I have been waiting for this since I had a speclized pBrain back in high school. It gathers so much data and you can overlay your route on google maps or earth. Since I am a MAC user I also signed up for motionbased.com which is a web based data service so I can store and analyze all my training data. You can see my ride HERE.




I had a bit of a spill, but it felt good!


The only saving grace to my fitness is, THE ZONE. I started this way to eat, I hate calling it a diet cause its way lifestyle not a temporery way to lose weight. I have lost 20LBS with out exercise and I feel so much better in everyday life.

Shooting the new Transition Pro from SPECIALIZED



Last month I got to go up to Morgen Hill, CA and Shoot the New Transition Pro from SPECIALIZED. It was quite a plesure of a shoot, a nice cool crisp morning and all the casting was done for me.


Erick Marcheschi from SPECIALIZED got a employ to model and used a local Triathlon to set up the shot. I was a little nervous not knowing the location or seeing the model but it all came together well.


Everyone wants me to pan! But its ok I like it.


Thats Erick Holding the light.



I wish I was out riding on a nice Bay Area day. This bike looks fast just sitting in the rack and even faster on the road.



Shade the Flare!



Give him Props, that pavement was Gravely



I can't kneel, so I sit. Thank you Marry Boone!


Thank you SPECIALIZED and Thank you Erick for making my shoot a pleasure.
