• WTB CZR Wheels: At The Finish
    I give the CZR wheels a ‘highly recommended’ score here.

This review is not being done to evangelize anyone. But those who have a more open mind to new ideas should read on.

  • A Spectrum Of Lights: A Riding Gravel Round-Up
    It’s almost Fall. Of course in So Cal that does not mean much except that the days get shorter and it is not 105 degrees. No leaves will fall as they have all died of drought and have already fallen or they have burned up in some forest fire.
