Here's a big fat hug to all y'all. Rock out proper for the holidays, and don't be the consumerist fool when it's all over.

DuHrangO is a nice place to visit, although when we went to visit the Zeph at 525 it was all gone?! Anyway this here blog is just about full up and it;s about time to get the .gov worked out never fear


What Choo Tapin?

There are moments of inspiration, and straight up moments of intoxication. Somewhere in the intersections coool ass fun shit happens (sooory Kids). Tapin is a straight up Slapptastic affair, but thank the good lord baby whatever he (her) is, that the Slappster was kind enough to bring that artform to the table. And while I may have been misinformed about sizers and all that, I been tapin a bit small scale, but that's been good. So here's a freshy sampler of what is goin on at least right hear right now. 1/4 meets 1/8 meets 1/16. Messy bit of whatnot that is. But lookit, lookit the colors.




StompN about

In attempts to fight it off, bikes continue to be ridden on dry and not so dry singletrack. A nice gaggle of Tellyriderz' made it out of town at the crack of noon yesterday, and down to Philz' world, where the parking lot was full and the shreddn' was sweeet. Dolores Brewpub never fails to cap off a ride in the part of the world.

Prior to that, heading into Paonia en route back from the front range, we passed a big new sign for 'Galaxy', a bike shop of some sort. We then had dinner at the Flying Fork and some folks came and sat on the other side of the glass and proceeded to make funny faces at us. Upon our departure John hopped up and came to discuss the Pugz on the car and how we needed to come check out the as yet unopened Galaxy shop. No prob, I'll happily check out any bike shop. Well Galaxy is sweet with multiple owners in a rambling downtown Paonia home, where John has parked his school bus that has served as his mobile bike shop for a while. Paintings and sculptures are already up in the shop, and they had maps of the trail system. Which is sweet. Only problem was, mid November things are awesome down low, and after just enough climbing on sweet singletrack the soil suddenly turned to mud so sticky there was no going. Of course having gotten up there I continued to carry my stuffed bike with pounds of mud on each foot until i realized i was going back down. IN anyevent, that trail system will get a thorough stompin' as soon as the time comes next spring. And i can't wait to see how Galaxy is doing.



Happy HAllowSTompaWeen


Man did I have a sweet ride on the pave. Glorious pavement that ascends past a lil private road sign up in to the precious mega mansion subdivisions on the sunny side, up and up. And hot fast and tight on the DH, boy was the Cooper pumped.

And this goofalope, sold me the Karate monkey for Hilary since he bought it too small, then he bought Stash's old Spot 9'r belt drive SS. Well signs point to him not knowing how to ride. Case in point, Porcupine rim descent led to crushing the Spot, down tube kinked one way, top tube kinked the other, and he walked away. Whoa.

In other news, Don rode his Karate monkey for the first time yesterday, and despite a long standing bike fleet, he'd never ridden mill creek, and boy did he get his on day one. Right near the bottom of the Jud, pile driver. Still walkin and talkin though, which is nice.


Surly Pugsley is a comin'!!!

So if you haven't ridden or even heard of the Surly Pugsley, stop on into The Gear Exchange and have yourself a look/ride. We currently have one med built up and have been riding the crap out of it since January, seen below atop Sunlight Mt. last winter

We have the new "Snowblind" Pugsley's hitting the doors next week!! Quite a few on order but I know that their supplies are limited, so yo better act fast and get one or be left out in the cold!!

Suggested retail is $1550, so call now and reserve yours, 970-945-8500. niRAD



No more ankle hardware, no longer bionic
feeln' good billy ray



A Little BiciPolo Muscle

We flexed a little bicipolo muscle down in Fort Quollins for the Colorado Cup.  Although the Stompaz didn't win the cup, we played great and as Will said, "did amazing things."
We beat the Belfry Boys handily, once in the morning, and once in the afternoon.  Sz got his shot on, well, almost.
We went to the finals against the Durango Malletheads and Sz did score on them, which was a first.  It was an under-Bailey's-bike shot that hit the back of the net hard, untouched.   ...and there were 2 or 3 long shots that were SO CLOSE!  Dang!  Second place ain't so bad.  We've been improving since that first Lyons Tourney where we got 4th, and since our 3rd place showing in Durango at SSWC.  We won the Blockheadsz Tourney in Glenwood Springs, which will have asterisk next to it since neither of the defending champ teams was there!  Whatev. R.

"Hey Lady!"

The best part was just seeing everyone... and kickin' back on a bike all day. 

A little bicipolo muscle:
(I have the seeds, if you wanna grow one, too)

Red Kite Prayer

'The sad truth is that our heroes aren’t superhuman. They are men and women with iron lungs and clay feet. In as much as we are disappointed in those who cheat, do we not also have to acknowledge complicity, for it is we, the fans, who have asked them to be so much more than they are?'

18 Rode

9 boyz and 4 quasi-adults braved the sunshine to ride in Fruita this past weekend.

Of the 9 or so fish we caught, we kept 6, all of which Sz cleaned successfully without cutting his fingers off.  But between the obnoxious feral cats, the late hour at which they were cooked and Erik's crying incessantly about his peenie hurting,  (Blake had kicked him in the nuts earlier) only a couple were actually eaten. Boy were they good.

Hollenback chilled me out on a great Loma/Horse Thief Loop, we had numerous cruiser rides around the campground, and Julia actually rode the Big Dummy.


F.I.n.E STompN

Thanks be to the Harmony and the Blessings that saw MattY make it to Tellride along with the likes of Isla and Brad, for a lovely weekend awaited.
Matty demonstrated the vastness of his STOMpability in getting on the Pugsley for the first time and riding up to the Bridal Veil power plant for the party, where as he stomped me up the climb he remarked that i needed to breathe, despite the passage of vehicles. Then in the five hour and 3 hour versions of Stompaz in action over the next two days, he remained powerfully on the front drillin' it on the Pugz all weekend long. Thanks to Nirad for sending it down so Matty could get the Pugz bug once and for all.
And how can you go wrong with this guy?
Shreddin the Clown Wagon all the live long day, Skotty2Hotty sure was welcome when he moseyed on over from Duhrango for some last minute leafness.

Hilary, rockin' her Bike Wild jersey, is not amused by the Mill Creek bridge. Typical government work, big and blocky. What's wrong with a rope swing?
And straight from sea level, James rolled in from Seattle, was immediately conscripted to the top of the waterfall for the bridal veil party, which went well by all accounts, and the morning after, issued a full stompa team kit and my niner which he proceeded to STOMp the Shite out of for the full prospector/alta/t35/goose tour, so sweet
Marco, meanwhile tries to SUP the surly, with some success.. Brad demonstrates how to start the ride in the pain cave, atop the gondola, and keep on keepin on all the live long day, hooray
thanks for comin'!
See you in Moab for 100 mi of sweetness friday night!

Secret Weaponz

Can you keep a secret?

This could possibly be a game changer.  (still playing bicipolo with it, not tennis or anything)

The shape is optimized for our sport, and the handle is drop-bar style, so no worrying about which way your head is pointed!
It has the signature FC counterweights at the top of the handle, and of course a Jessen Pedersen Strap for not-lettin-go.

B-Black-as-night because its a prototype...  it'll get some spanky new paint if it performs as designed.

The secret?  Its made from firewood.  That's right, 7-11 firewood.

Long STory Short

Champs again, dang , nice stompN

PugZthugZ n' HUgZ
