Spend a bit more time in the garage lately, mostly late evenings with a good glass of red wine. Why? Well, I needed to built up a nice new bike for the wifey. After Specialized, and another Specialized it was time for something custom and thanks to Russ Walker I got her a full-custom painted COBRA. Made in Taiwan, just like any other frameset you buy in the store but 70% cheaper. And the Austin Flyers paint scheme came with it. While I never got a chance to talk/chat with the guy who painted that frame in some factory in Taiwan I sure know he did an amazing job getting the colors right and most importantly made the wifey happy ;-)

Here are a few pics. Complete SRAM Red with a VCRC BB, an Easton stem/bar combo and of course a pair of COBRA 101 "Comin' in Hot"-edition wheels straight from Russ Walker's Auto Mall Accessories in Shreveport, Louisiana ;-)

Ultra Romance with Wooly Mammoth

This past weekend I participated in Team Wooly Mammoth' 1st Ultra Provocatorio Invitationale. Tons of fun with Andrew, Jen, and Francis. We (unofficially) won, too and all got some nice swag. Thanks Wooly's! Total 117miles for the day.
