Ride Your Bike

Conrad writes from Lincoln, Nebraska, and he likes to ride bikes. He also likes art, cinema, music, black cats, good wine, good food, and people who ride bikes. He's an old-school roadie, but also likes urban fixed gear riding and a bit of offroad single speed fun on occasion. Most days (or nights) he can be spotted riding through downtown.

sounds like chuooch part deux 09-15-2015
i recently changed the setup on the Ciocc and i'm finding that i ride it a lot more this way.  it started out as a gravel bike but with it's mid 80's sport/touring geometry it didn't seem as quick on the gravel as i wanted so then i […]

the old girl likes snow 12-29-2014

winter schminter 12-01-2014
my old Bianchi X4 is still getting daily use until we get real snow.  i've regeared her from 44x16 to 44x19 to deal with the steep hills of midtown Omaha. despite the cold temps the sky sure is pretty.

prepping for GW's 07-18-2014
gravel worlds is just around the corner, and i'm registered in the SS category like last year.  however this year instead of a cross bike with 30-32c tires i think i'll ride one of my road bikes (a mid 90's merckx in team motorala caloi livery) with […]
