Speaking of fun, After meeting up with Aaron from Fat Cat Bike Bags the other day and putting myself exactly one thirds of the way into the bag, I then went to Friendly Paul and Friendly Anna’s house for dinner with Blue Collar Robert, Smitty Smith, and Demonika. It was a real nice evening during which we caught up, discussed old times, played with their dog, and drank more libations.
Upon returning home however, I came upon a big envelope on my front porch, which I begrudgingly kicked inside of my house upon entry, because I never get any packages, and I assumed it wasn’t for me anyway.
But I’m glad I at least got what I did, and if you would like a bit of your own, (though the custom trail jersey on the left will no longer be available), I will at least jerseys bibs and shorts will continue to be made available on the AHTBM/Voler partnership page.
If by chance you clicked on that link and there are just a bunch of blank templates, it’s only because Voler hasn’t yet pushed the buttons and turned the knobs, but they’ve assured me it’s nearing the top of their to-do list.
Moving from those topics onto others, let’s get cracking with yet another event that’s on the horizon down in Southern California what happens to be organized by Paul from Atomic Cycles;
It’s still a ways off, so if you wanna print that out, and pin it to your wall, do so. Don’t forget that you’ll need to bring your own mullet, as mullets won’t be supplied on the day of the event.
“(Three months later), Oberpriller and his wife opened One on One Bicycle Studio. The concept was service in back, (and) bike stuff in front.”
Business up front, and a party in the back. It was with this description when I realized One on One is literally the mullet of bike shops.
I mean, it makes sense to me anyway. Then again, my mind is a war zone, so the fact that I should draw that conclusion should come as no surprise.
In news both relating to mail baggins, as well as bikecycle events, but not really mullets at all, Davey D reached out with a bit of an information detailing a throw down he’s got planned during the upcoming NAHBS show;
If you’re coming to NAHBS, it’d be great to see you at this on-road, off-road alleycat. This’ll take off after the show on Friday and ramble around downtown and the city creek sections of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, our local XC situation here in SLC. It’ll end at whatever afterparty people are most anxious to go to;
Don and the organizers aren’t going to share it because, understandably, they don’t want to be sued. So if you could spread the word through your social media or whatever channels you see fit, that’d be great!
In any case, see you soon, hopefully!
So if you’re gonna be in the SLC, you know what to do
Alas, I won’t be in SLC, or at NAHBS not only because the entire outdoor industry is abandoning Salt Lake City due to their jacked up politics, but because I’ve vowed to never go to a NAHBS show I can’t get to in under an hour, for at least as much money as exists in my pocket, (which is generally very little), but primarily because I will be in Colorado that week.
Bringing a ‘ringer’ in from sea level to compete at 8,200″ I’m sure won’t blow up in anyone’s faces, not the least of which being mine.
So while people are getting jiggy in the SLC, I’ll be throwing up in my hands the next state over.
If you happen to be in or near the little town of Ned around the same time, search me out and slap me a five. Preferably for us both, before the aforementioned hand barfing happens.
We’ve got just about two weeks left on the pre-order, and I’ll be submitting it to my printer on the morning of the 6th of March, so if you fall asleep at the wheel, don’t come crying to me.
No late entries will be accepted, because I’m a hard ass like that.
On the chance that you have a model built and you don’t get a few photos of it emailed to stevil(at)allhailtheblackmarket(dot)com by the 28th, you’ve made your bed and will have to lie in it.
