Thanks for the patience/understanding in this week’s quasi-fractured posting schedule.
I’ll tell you what, Wednesday post took me as long to write, and edit as it took me to actually find the finish line last Saturday.
So with that being said, I’m gonna drop a couple of short logs in your lap today, and go back to bed.
The first is from Hurl regarding some of his fine ass new wares;
Hey Steve Kinevil, Gravel Racer!
Whether it’s rolling down some farm dog dusty Minnesota gravel roads and eating cold hot dogs at the checkpoint, or pinching ice cream cake from the Oberpriller kids, man, you just parachuted in and out of the Midwest like some kind of action star for 72 hours and we’re all left better people because of it. I’m so stoked that I made the late morning drive to down Forestville to ride the Almanzo route in reverse to find you and Geno, two orange jump-suited heathens girding your loins;
It’s always a delight to see you and spend a little time laughing at the absurdities of life. All that was missing was a little Pantz Noyzee-style rock and roll. If you’d been one week later, I could have sent you home with a pair of these high-zoot olive drab CRC x GIRO DND Gloves;
This is my fourth round of these mitts and I do love ‘em because they work great for all manner of bicycle•punk rock•action: dirt biking, drop bar dirt biking, flat bar dirt biking, bike packing, and even riding road bikes in the dirt! They can also protect your paws from the calamities of clutching an ice cold beer sans coozie.
These won’t be around for long so if any of the Right Reverend readership of this high perf web-log are so inclined, they can be procured in sizes S – 2XL right here.
He’s a silver tongued devil, that Hurl is.
Say your mom or dad would like their gardening gloves back, then here Hurl has a second, and far more preferable option.
If you order some from the old bean, also include a note about ‘a platter of Magnums’. He’ll know what you mean.
Having handled a bit of that business, I have a little of my own that we’ll now address.
Firstly, it was through Chris from Loose Nuts Cycles in Atlanta that I came across a flyer for some upcoming shenanigans they have planned for next month. I shot him a message and asked for details, to which he replied thusly;
Ask and you shall receive;
My brother Nate did the flyer– he’s on the instagrams at (at)qhj(underscore)design.
I asked Chris if I could pimp this bash, and he said all are welcome, as long as they’re not dicks.
So there you go. Just like it say in The Bible- Don’t be a dick.
Now I gotta circle around from that, to a bit of info detailing merch junk.
Folks might recall my recent pre-order of the ‘Respect Women, Worship Satan’ shirts that came and went like a shockwave.
Well, apparently some people have a real hard time committing to buying a goddamned shirt when the spirit moves them, and instead wait until the day I sell the last one before sending me a desperate plea to do another run.
I figured since enough people apparently missed the boat the first time around, it would be worth the effort for me to do another batch. This of course means that we get to send another check to RAINN, which was just about my favorite part of the process last time around anyway.
So if you’d like to be on the wagon with the current order, get crackin’, Jackson;
Please note- This pre-order window will be open until the 21st of June. After this round, I might never not won’t do them ever again, probably.
And one more item before we go- I got my hands on a new round of the AHTBM Metal Patch;
As well as a bunch of the Stunt Association patch;
So there you have it cats and kittens. All kinds of new goods for you to ignore, or not.
