Bike Your Drive!

I’ve done good…

I received a couple of encouraging emails from 2 of our readers. Both had mentioned that they just purchased a brand new Redline 925. I’m sure everyone here knows how much I love my 925 and because of my zeal, I helped influence these guys to get their own.

As a blogger, that’s the best feeling knowing that what I’ve said on the site has made some impact. Congrats to Lance and Drew on their new 925’s. Now go for a ride!

It is just sad to see the grand sport of professional cycling go to the shit hole.
