I'm back!

I'm back in the US after a great send off from New Zealand.

Thanks to the iRide crew and the country of New Zealand for playing host to me for several months. It was grand.

And I'm back on the road.

Currently in beautiful Costa Mesa California, home of Jamis bikes west coast offices. Also home to the La Qunita inn which, has been my home for the last 10 days, and hooters. Which is hooters.

When I arrived there was a fair amount of work to be done. You could almost make out the Jamis logo behind this part of our parts order.

Lots of work means occasionally taking your work home with you. The maids were not quite sure what to make of this when they came by to clean my room.

I also managed to make a huge mess all over the place. In addition to the Jamis show room and my hotel room I also took over the loading dock for an afternoon to glue some tires.

And among all the new stuff there were even some goodies for the mechanics. A big thank you to Feedback Sports for hooking us up with new stands for the season. If you're in the market: these are the stands to have.

A bit of the finished product.

And the riders who are coming in tonight should have no question about who's bed is who's.


Off to Mexico City for Vuelta Mexico in a couple of days. More blogging to follow.
