Slippery Ride to Carbondale!!

So this is the aftermath of a slippery commute to Carbondale last night, housesitting for Korba and Shelby in RVR and I guess the studs work super kick ass in most applications unless its a sheet of ice and you start sliding, just be ready to hip check the path and hope you laugh as hard as I did last night!!! niRAD

'To ride a turn like this it’s important to remain loose on the bike, keep an eye on your exit point and let your instincts take over. If you panic and stiffen up, you won’t be able to move around on the bike and you’ll force the tyres to break loose.' bikeRadar

Duder Nabs Nude Cyclists, Releases Them

This bodes quite well for SSWC2010NZ:
Senior Constable Cathy Duder of the Wellington, NZ police picked up two naked men on a late night bike ride in a New Zealand town but let them off with a warning: put on helmets.
"They were wanting to experience total freedom," said Duder, who stopped the pair about 10 p.m. on a recent night in the beach resort town of Whangamata. She told them: "You may experience total confinement. You should head home and get helmets."
Public nudity can attract a charge of offensive behavior in New Zealand, but Duder said she cut the two men a break. "It was dark and there was no one else around. They were jovial young men who had not intended to cause offense," she said. She described the two as "happy young men in their mid-20s ... they appeared to be as sober as two judges."

Black and white stompa stickerz arriving in the year 2010, preparation and timing always and fo-eva

xtra xtra



While everyone should of course ride an XTRAcycle as much as possible
They should also drive toyota corollaz', which isn't the case, instead there's the suv.
The corolla though seems to be the basic premise of many an xtra, and that's cool, that's cool..

While it might seem like a good idea to drive some sort of monster truck, it's NOT!

AN XTraMONSTompa on the other hand, is the perfect remedy to the corolla blues
basic recipie, 69'r dual disc xtra w/ gearz, match the position of your raddest baddest meanest bike, STomp IT
and a Nokian studded 29'r x 2.1 in front is just plain silly

Earrings are in!!


Got a bunch of earrings made up in the last few days and made a display for em to hang on too, it's all recycled stuff that was just laying around and NOT going to the landfill. Fellas come and get some for your special lady friend, cause they're flying out the door, or call me at 970-945-8500 and I can ship 'em to ya!!! niRAD

Top Things that would Redeem Obama's Peace Prize

Start some more wars..

Juan Cole's INformed Opinion

The world has noted the irony that President Barack Obama is delivering his acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize after launching an escalation of the Afghanistan war. Of course, the critique is a little misplaced, since the prize is for a specific policy success, not for being a pacifist.

Still, Mr. Obama was clearly given the prize to encourage him in the direction of peace. It is the tragedy of the sole superpower that it is unconstrained by peers and so can launch wars of choice and shatter international law at will. It can be counseled but not blocked. He was awarded this honor as a counsel.

So here are the things Obama can do to redeem his prize.

1. Get out of Iraq on schedule. We can't stop their low-intensity conflicts, and they are more likely to compromise with each other if we are not there.

2. Resist calls for Iran to be bombed. Such a raid would guarantee that Iran would start a crash program to develop a nuclear weapon, and there would be no way to stop it short of full-scale war.

3. Stop allowing the CIA to operate drones with which to assassinate people. It is illegal and shameful. The US military must be in charge of defending the country by force or we are a police state.

4. Get the Palestinians a state by the end of 2011, even if by unilateral recognition. Palestinian statelessness is the biggest human rights scandal in the world, since citizenship is the right to have rights. This step alone would solve the bulk of US problems in the Arab world and would deal a deadlier blow to al-Qaeda than capturing Bin Laden.

5. Stick to the plan of beginning a US troop withdrawal from Afghanistan in summer 2011. Karzai and the generals will attempt to embroil us in a decades-long quagmire. No one will remember his Nobel peace prize if President Obama lets that happen.

Holidazzle time comes in squirts and spurts for stompaz.. Depending on the timing and preparation, some things just present them selves with gratitude, whenever. Such was the case for BRN at the freebox, perhaps the same one my pink Rollerblade skate bag came from, and he bestowed upon moi a fresh and glorious Rollerblade fannypack, thus filling a rather sizable hole in my life, (no fannypack). Thanks babyJesus, i mean BRD

\

At the drop of a Hat, Bro Bennski, hopped up the road from duhrango, dragging with him a large pile of snow, and just so happened to get involved with STompRADion KOTO.org last night, and woke up to heaping heaps of freshly arrived freshies. Scampered up onto the hill we did, to revel in the first powder day of the season. The previous snow pack being in such sorry shape that on the blue square terrain of lift five the hordes where stompin the fresh into settling movement all about. STAY Away from the steep stuff, sheesh! It was rad.. then we came back and Ben Photoshopped his way right into the heart, before skipping back over the reopened Lizard Head pass, back to Duhwango for a day at Wolf Creek manana with it's supposed 45" , sheeesh And in Ben's benevolance he hooked a swell fresh pair of gogglez for moi for the holidayz. So snice to see, and it's just gettin started..

PROdoperZtOUR

Yah so u may have heard, the PROdoperZTour is a long way away, 247 days give or take a month. Gonna be in Telluride, gonna be good. Gettin it in order in my braincave.. came across a couple hundred yard drive way thats closed and hasn't been built on, since it's on the side of the fairly steep east side of the town canyon,, perfect tractor pull venue, whoever is on the tractor pull if the cops come, just bomb drop down the side of the mountain..
Skid contest down by the river. . bingerHILClIMb starts as a group climb around the BoomVAN, which will be boomin it's way up mill creek road in neutral mobile binger boomer hill climb mode, then up eider... uuuuh trying to envision a final stage where we all end up passed out in a field, probably in a pile like Where the WildThings R, and probably a ROAD stage, it is the PDT afterall
Oh and wherever this STreet STOMper is, it'll be in Telluride for the PDT, raced as one of the fixxee relayz' and the winner will take it home.

Well, upon return, I think this last lil bike ride may have been one of the most immersive and deep pain cave visits i've experienced in long time.. Drove over the pass from t-ride and pulled over near Rico to start.. Nice reverse tailwind for 20 mi or so into Dolores on a lovely Wednesday, reasonably temperate; while staring at an eagle across the Dolores river up in a tree at one point, another eagle dropped in from behind and flew next to me for a bit before perching up in another tree. Upon rounding the corner towards Mancos the wind all of a suddenly got real friendly. With my wide disc-niner rear rack and panniers on the Cooper I was in full sail mode, clickin' the big ring up and over the risers and arriving in durango with time for a shower a nap, some dinner, all before Ben started his party at the abby theatre. Which went well, especially the whompwhomptakincareofbizness part and 5 o'clock in the morning is always a pretty good time to go to bed at benz i guess. Combining timing and preparation for a leisurely sleep deprived take off I settled into 20 degree weather and a ripping headwind for the next 6 hours or so. Luckily i got to start with a nice long climb up 160 out of town. So much for the big ring. Luckily I had totally spaced any tools or the like and had my seat a little too high on the ride there so my knees were good and stretched and sore, no aero bars to hide from the wind, and as always, you don't need to have fun to have fun. Had a piece of cake at the Absolute Bakery in Mancos to make me feel slower. After making the turn up the Dolores canyon hoping that wind would be cooperative ( it wasn't) and the sun went away, I started to wonder just how cold it was gonna get, and where exactly I'd parked. Along came my pal Juju, just back from getting an Alpaca pack raft in Mancos, and he gave me a lift for the last 15 mi or so, which would have been pretty cool in the dark; that was just fine by me, 13o mi of semi loaded riding for a dance party, yeah it's called STOMPN. xoxoxo PainCave!

Diesel Electrificationne

Its always hard to miss a Full Moon Krooze with the Stompaz.  There so are many stompaz worldwide,  I think more of us miss the FMC's than attend them.  Expatriotz just have to piece together their own little FMC, in some form...  and we ride with them.  The full moon can be stomp'd from wherev.
Thx to Diesel for progressing the sport with pyrotechnics.  If the lights don't flash, burn some rubber!  (or send 10,000 volts through the thing, just for good measure)
By the good fortune of advanced robotics, the boomstracycle is self-healing, and lives again to bump another day.  (night)



The solar charging system, though, has seen its last days of converting light into sound...
Are there solar panels designed for combat?

VinceLand

I've been all stoked on the writing of Vince and upon reading back a couple years of his excellent posts, i discover that he grew up in VT where I did, snowboarding on the same hill, DaaaaNg


from vinceland.com

-- " Thank you for putting questions in my head: “Do I NEED a truck?”, “Couldn’t you LIVE without a big truck?”, “It’s SO big.”, “Why do you need a truck that BIG?”.

Reality: I am a big man who admires big trucks. I don’t even care what color they are.

If it’s big and strong, I’d drive a pink one and still kick your ass in it.

Life on TruckAs a big man who will always like big trucks, and one who has the means to own one, I may just buy one soon, and drive it happily.

Just letting you know, so you can prepare to keep your comments inside, bottled up.

And keep your horribly lame, hybrid wimp-mobile in the slow lane, for as long as it makes you feel better about yourself.




Vince is GREat!

South Carolina shoppers will get a second chance to buy tax-free guns. The state Revenue Department sent out a reminder Wednesday of the upcoming "Second Amendment Weekend." The 48-hour tax break begins just after midnight the Friday after Thanksgiving.

Shoppers will pay no state or local sales taxes on handguns, rifles and shotguns, which can tally 9 percent. Taxes still apply to ammunition and accessories.

Just got the pix up here

HOw glorious!! STompn at it's finest with some fine STompaZ! Nirad and Getty failed to rally any more roaring fork stomprz, as did Skotty2hotty and myself, but of course 4 turned out to be the perfect number.. 4:20 am saw us awake but in the proud tradition of preperation and timing coming together, we didn't pedal out till 5:30.. and it wasn't until 5:30pm that we encountered our first rain. Prior to that was nothing but beautiful White Rim goodness, tacky dirt, shreddy shredness, and so on and so forth. The last 10 miles or so did see us paying our dues with an epic mud-bog double track that threatened to swallow our bikes whole, but instead just stopped all moving parts, like wheels. Luckily we all know a bike mechanic for that lovely post mud fest overhaul, (aim the pressure washer into the bearings)
And we managed to get up and out of mineral bottom the next morning, but not before doing the right thing for the PBR's awaiting us, (stompn 'em in succesion) eating burgers with salad dressing and passing the f out! NOt quite 100 mi but the White Rim in a day no less, and plenty happy happy all around..

Skotty didn't like bikes or anything at the end of the final mud slog, but he just called and said he's in search of a permit for a three day STompR Tour with lots of frisbee golf for sometime in the vicinity of 4.20.2010. . .sickter. . . thanks guys for showing the way, just gotta believe!!

In case you just HAPPEN to be in Tempe 2nite...


I found religion. it's a 29er

This just in from Jamey Evans, AKA Sid. (Vicious)  He is a federale, and one of our front line front rangerz:
I saw the water turn to wine right below my hands and feet.  The conversion of this pilgrim was very quick.  One ride is worth a thousand words, and two rides (on two different full suspension 29ers) is worth two-thousand...uh....dollars actually.  Which is roughly what I dropped this week on the 29er that will carry my smiling arse the next ten+ years.  I have joined the Chris, Novy and Brian 29er bandwagon by getting a Salsa Big Mama.  Thank you gentlemen for showing me the way.  My long autumn of test riding bikes came to a lovely end with this new, wonderful toy.  I've attached a picture of the new baby. Novy--you'll really love this part.  I just happened to be wearing the Greenline Architects jersey while test riding and the guy at the shop asked where I got it.  "I got an architect buddy in Carbondale" I said. "Steve Novy?" he asked!  Yep, this small world had Adam Williams helping me look at the end-of-season deals at the Golden Bike Shop!  Quite a hoot.  Adam knows his stuff and is a great guy despite the fact he knows you well.  Was nice to be able to buy a bike from him--from his good advice all the way to the "friends of Steve Novy discount" I said I should receive at the end (which I did).
Glad to be about the good ship 29er, captain.  Peace.  And big wheels.
