    A little Team Beer and HBC Love








    My alloy Flash is now safely SS. The Team Beer adapter was a breeze to install, and with some liberal application of FSA paste it is creek free. The Phil bearings will hopefully last a long time and so far they spin great. The HBC ring is just plain awesome looking. No complaints at all. All my latest additions have been made in the good old US. Did my first race last night and it's a blast to ride. This mountain bike will never see gears again.

    Team BEER has a passion for riding tall skinny tires in the dirt. Sometimes this means a road bike on some single track. Sometimes it means we are hitting the local trails on a fixed gear track bike. But more often than not, it means we are rolling on some kind of cyclocross bike either to work, for training, for fun, or for racing.

    For us, cross season is a year round experience. During the months of September, October, November, December, and January, the experience changes with the addition of a paid race fee and a pinned on number. The rest of the year is filled with various road races, MTB races, touring adventures, commuting to work, and some bike camping thrills.

    The team is comprised of a variety of racing ability. But, all members on the team are true cyclists. We are cyclists in the sense that the bicycle is a significant part of our daily lifestyle. We use our bicycles as much as possible, and view them as magnificent machines rather than a tool for fitness and nothing else. Many members on the team are employed by various bicycle shops located in Sacramento, and others are members of various cycling advocacy groups in Sacramento. There are 3 League of American Bicyclists LCI instructors on the team as well. We hope to continue to help our community in ways that are possible.

    I'd swear this bike was made for 650b.

    I needed a cheap crank and was able to piece it together on ebay. $10 for the XT side and $5 for the SLX non drive side. All brand new parts! Eventually I might strip them and paint them.

    Seems fitting for a bike with a Lefty Maybe you should run with the black lefty theme and run a black grip on the left and a white on the right

    Those grips would go well with my bastardized bike.

    Nice finish! Way to podium.

    I am hoping to be at Sewell on the starting line with you, but that will likely be the last I see of you until the finish!

    I'm working that weekend and won't make that race. I can't switch out either because baby #2 will be here by the end of August and all my weekends in August are packed full of things to do. When baby #2 arrives, I will have 2 months off from work starting Aug/Sept..........which means more time for CX racing on the weekends

    Um, since when does baby arrival mean *more* time for riding?

    I had the same question, but since this is #2, he must be doing something right!

    Could you talk to my wife about that? One 4 y/o is a challenge to my riding.

    Seems counterintuitive, I know. Not only will I be able to race most of the early CX races, BUT when I do go back to work from paternity leave, I'll be commuting by bike just about daily since my wife will also be considerably cutting back her hours at work. The "long" way home from work takes me straight through one of our trail systems

    Win Win!

    Now to keep my eye on that Rawland Halfmaane for a singlespeed commuter.....http://rawlandcycles.blogspot.com/search?q=halvmaane

    How has Team Beer's adapter been working thus far? Any complaints or issues?

    It's great! I did have to make one adjustment, and that was the addition of some teflon tape around the adapter to quiet down some creaking. After a thorough bike wash some creaking popped up that I couldn't get rid off. The teflon tape cleared it up and has been creek free since. Also, I never had the BB faced which undoubtedly would have helped tremendously with creaking. Overall, I'm still loving the bike and no complaints with the adapter. I see that Raleigh bikes is using them as a stock item on their bikes........although they call it an FSA EBB BB30 adapter. I wonder if FSA stole the design?
