    Pssst.... I got some stuff to show you. Vids and pics!

    I know, long time no see. Life has a way of coming on pretty strong now and again.

    I suppose I could go back to my last post, but that would be super time consuming, and, well, I'm not going to do that today. I might post some summer photos later. I'll focus this thread on my more recent rides.

    In the Grand Junction/Fruita area, we have been "blessed" with one of the coldest Januarys in history, possibly record breaking. That means the wool and layers come out and the rides are colder and snowier.

    Here are some photos:

    And yes, I still love and make food:



    These cookies have chocolate cookie dough, bittersweet chocolate, chocolate chips, and I used a double chocolate stout beer to make the icing.

    And the old girl is hanging in there:

    Great shots, screampint! I love the Fruita / GJ trails. I can't imagine how fun it would be to shred around in the snow. Thanks for the stoke!

    great pics and vids. Have been enjoying the snow rides back here in warm PA. LOL. We have just as much fun riding in the snow as on the dirt. Flask cage? Cool idea.
    LOVE THE RIDE!

    I have family in Grand Junction. The temps you guys have been seeing is crazy! I was thinking of putting off the Fruita trip this year and trying somewhere different. However....those pics just drag me right back. Great pics, as always.

    One more video. This one is just some raw footage of my descent back to the parking lot. Taken on a rigid bike, so yes, it's shaky, like all my videos from the bars of the singlespeed.

    I found the recipe here: Triple Chocolate Salted Stout Cookies

    I used a double chocolate stout instead of Guinness.

    Great pics as always!

    If you don't mind me asking, what is the matching headset and grips? I really like that look.
