Nonconform Cycling

Dennis Grelk (an "obsessive non-compulsive, overactive cyclist, audiophile, nerd") writes from Donnellson (in southeastern Iowa) about endurance cycling, gravel road rides, homebuilding, and human-powered vehicles.

"This is a site dedicated to the worst sort of bike nerds. The sort who eat, sleep, and dream everything bike. A few of us have even figured out how to braze and think outside the box."
