Ahearne Cycle Truck-Suited and Booted

I'm a little tardy with this post (Sorry Richard, Joseph, Tripp) but, Richard Chambers's Ahearne Cycle Truck Ku$tom is finished. Richard "borrowed" his Ahearne before I finished installing and wiring the lights, etc., to go for a ride with the Adventure Cycling guys when they were in town a few weeks ago and afterward dropped it off at the shop to be completed. The bike turned out great and Richard was kind enough to have the Colonel's Bicycles logo placed on the bike's signage. Joseph Ahearne and his guys are pros and the Cycle Truck frameset showed up on time and built up without any issues whatsoever. That combined with Richard's spreadsheet build list and patience made this a fun project. As always, the build (Richard Proof) consisted of parts from Brooks, Busch and Muller, Chris King, Rohloff, Surly, Sykes Wood, etc. With custom mounts finished and the two 12 volt B&M dynos mounted, the Ahearne was ready for delivery. Oh yeah, for those of you with a wood fetish, that's blonde bamboo.

Ahhh! Old Man Winter--The Tuesday Nighter Lives On!

Spring my friend, where are you? Oh well, at least we got out for 2+hours last night before our latest round of this stuff. Sully's back on and the Lerbergs, aka the Hansens (from the movie Slapshot, not the band), showed. Kocian was on his Salsa Con Crosso and yours truly rode the '91 B'stone. With more and more people discovering the dirt/gravel road thing, I can see the Tuesday Nighter evolving in to a ride you won't want to miss. So, get out your cross bike, old road bike, 29er, monster crosser, 650b, rando, porteur, touring bike, singlespeed, multispeed, put on your lights, and show up. Tuesday Nights, 6:30pm, 25-30 mi., feel free to call or email with questions.
