markreimer I may not be a good climber, but I can ride in the wind. 1w
  •   reverend_dick I am not a "good" climber, but I enjoy it. The wind...crushes my spirit. 1w
  •   49sven Nice pic :-) 1w
  •   rk_mcmxc I loved the wind when I lived in Florida, now it just crushes me on climbs here in Georgia 1w

markreimer @cindytitus rode with me to portage. 100km, her longest ride yet! Here we're riding through 70km/h gusts as combines kick up dust. Tell her how badass she is! 2w

markreimer Got my @velo_orange decaleur setup for my @swiftindustries ozette tonight. I love having a basket but I think this will suit me better. Any tips for adhering patches to this kind of bag? Stitching is the obvious choice but it'll be really awkward to stitch only the outer layer of fabric. 3w
  •   markreimer @hellhommus yeah, I've heard the decaleur isn't the greatest... Hopefully I have better luck. Thanks for the epoxy tip! 3w
  •   cyorke I've got glued patches to bags before so not to ruin the waterproof -ness. It worked, but the glue residue is permanent if you ever change your mind. 3w
  •   cyorke *hot glued 3w
  •   velo_orange @hellhommus Shoot us an email! We'll get you set up with a replacement. Or let me know what happened so we can make it better for the future. I've been running mine for over 3 years without any problem. -Igor 3w
  •   hellhommus @velo_orange I'll do that. 3w
  •   serjaush There is no changing-of-mind with epoxy but it sticks! I Red Green my non-perma patches with Ducttape. 3w
  •   markreimer @serjaush ended up just stitching them in the end. It wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it'd be. 3w
  •   pedalandtread @markreimer nice bag. But looks like you're missing a patch ;-) 2w

markreimer Hey I wonder if I can make this tight corner going this fast, while drinking a coffee, with panniers full of groceries?

Hell yeah I can!

Oh shit. These fenders have way more toe overlap. Crash. Endo. Yard sale. Bent racks and eyelette. Good thing it's steel. I am an idiot.

markreimer Need advice from west coast riders. How do you stay dry in pouring rain? Fenders and Levi's commuter stuff helps, but isn't perfect 1mon
  •   brax4444 I wear sandals that dry fast and wool everything else. Works well. 1mon
  •   philtripp No pants, store them in your pack until you arrive. Towel off. Good to go. 1mon
  •   davidpulsipher I have had very nice experience with my craft pants. Well thought out and affordable. 1mon
  •   jdgesus I've had and have it all from $400+ pants and $400+ jackets. none of it work for more than an hour. so, if you plan on being less than an hour, go high tech, otherwise, full wool and a spare pair of clothes 1mon
  •   eddiebarksdale Jacket, tight jeans, and wool everywhere else. You learn to live with the wet and dry as you go. Bringing spare gear or using covers helps, but you'll always be wet. 1mon
  •   workingoutinjeans @jdgesus rides nude. I saw. 1mon
  •   jdgesus @workingoutinjeans I'm a wizard THO 1mon
  •   reverend_dick I'm with @jdgesus . Wool. At least you'll be warm. 2w

markreimer Finally got around to putting @velo_orange fenders on. #nowitsabike

This bike represents my favourite kind of riding. Commuting, running errands, riding to a friends place, whatever. No hand made race tires, carbon fibre or any of that jazz. Just form that follows function. #baaw #rivbike

markreimer Spent the day helping set up the course for the season cx opener tomorrow, DarkCross. It'll be my first time racing in the A Category, wish should be interesting/painful/fun/dumb. The course is going to be pretty rough and gnarly, which I'm excited about. Good times! 2mon
  •   ckhuebner We are going to try and destroy you. Of course, it might totally backfire. 2mon
  •   philtripp That looks...rough lol 2mon
  •   philtripp Maybe you and I can fight it out at the back of A 2mon
  •   markreimer @ckhuebner it's only a matter of time until I beat you fair and square in a race. It may be a very, very long time, but the day is coming... 2mon
  •   markreimer @philtripp it looks worse than it is. Actually the infield is the nasty section, but hopefully we can smooth that out tomorrow. 2mon
  •   ckhuebner Wait, didn't that day happen last week? 2mon
