It looks like VO is re-introducing the LD stem. I like these guys more and more every day.

http://velo-orange.blogspot.com/2016/07/projects-and-ideas.html
One of things I most enjoy at VO is seeing new projects come to fruition. We always have a long list of stuff that we're working on. The project list on my desk has 31 items this week, they include frames, handlebars, racks, etc. In some cases the projects are simply improvements of an existing ...

Cindy Whitehead might disagree with you. I sure want one but not the VO, and original some day for my Ibis.

I'm pretty sure the Piolet is a better Ogre than the Ogre. No suspension correction, shorter reach, vertical dropouts. Still has all the water bottle and rack mounts, and the color doesn't suck ass.

If it doesn't sell, I'll allow you to cover the cost of shipping it to me. Would make a decent trainer bike.

Gonna go ride the bike to get some beer. It's hot out there. Taking the long, flat way, and not the short, hilly way.

I need to do the same, and mow the lawn. However, laziness. I'm sitting in front of the computer.

Thank the gods for the previous homeowner leaving this POS behind, and for my good sense not to throw it out, because it actually makes cold air.

Unlike our central unit.

Yes, that's cardboard.

Velo Orange's Piolet harkens back to a time that predates suspension and indexed shifting; but with disc brakes and large tires, it's a modern classic...

+Kent Fackenthall You got the Porcelain Rocket bags, amiright? I'd be interested if you'd play your Giant Ambassador card and compare them to the Scout bags, if'n your dealer has them. I'ma do the same with my Surly/Revelate frame bag, since we have the full complement of Giant bags at the shop right now.

I can tell you that the Revelate Feed Bags have a kinda crappy feature to them. If you open and close the drawstring tops a lot, the cord actually saws through the plastic cord toggle. Don't know what would work better, other than maybe a metal toggle of some sort but I don't know that I've ever seen such a thing.

Took the slightly hilly, slightly shorter, but not the short, hilly way home. Somebody tell the Coors marketing dept. that they were right. I totally bought this for the stubbies.

The 510 was in for an overhaul. Someone still loves her.

Story
Tagline
Circling the drain since 1975.
Introduction
I like to ride bikes - the pedal-y kind and the motor-y.  I used to take a lot of pictures, but digital imaging isn't my thing and there's not enough money for bicycles _and_ motorcycles _and_ slide processing.

My politics are most easily described by Classical Liberalism and my religion by Secular Humanism.

Please feel free to add me to circles related to: 
  • bicycles
  • motorcycles
  • photography
  • Android
  • Linux
  • mathematics
  • physics
  • beer (drinking and brewing)
  • whisky
  • whiskey
  • paleo diet
  • literature
  • tabletop RPGs.

Just a note.  I don't generally circle anyone who doesn't have at least a little information on their "about" page.  *A photo and a brief introduction are the bare minimum.*  Recently, quite a few folks have been adding me to their circles.  I'm humbled and grateful.  But I've had over 6,000 circle adds in less than 6 weeks, and it's more than I have time to manage.  The best way to get circled back is to interact.  Or make sure there's a bike or camera in your profile photo.  That'll do the trick, too.  :)

Don't bother circling me if:
  • All you're going to do is spout off about politics, religion or procollegesportsball.
  • Your primary goal is to teach me how to use social media to maximize my brand buzzword buzzword buzzword buzzword.
  • Your G+ profile is little more than an attempt to funnel traffic to your facespace/tweeter/instaroid/lumpedin page.
  • You think "inbox" is a verb.
  • You've ever worn a spray-on tan.

I first visited BCR back in November 2015. Upon entering their shop the second time I was greeted by my first name. I've since purchased 3 guitars and 2 amps from them. They've been helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. I can't recommend them highly enough.
