Blog Surfing

OK, I'm probably the last person on Blogger to discover this, but if you go to a blog and hit the "Next Blog>>" button at the top, you will be directed to another blog with bike content. How could I not have known this earlier? So I have become addicted to Blog Surfing and spend a lot of my online time doing it. Should cut down on porn viewing. What? No, I mean bike porn!:) I will compile a list of blogs from the linked blogs on the right, and you can see who your neighbors are. I got in about 35 miles of gravelicious crunching Tuesday. Good thing too, given today's weather! I stress tested my conversion of my poor man's 29er to a 1X6 drop bar monstercross setup. It seems to work well , stayed bolted together, and as I always say on a maiden run, "Bust it or trust it!" Later!
P.S. Find an issue of Outside Magazine and check out the "Parting Shot" on the back page! No, it's not my van, but it could be! I spy a Nishiki Alien on the lower right of the pic, two Schwinn Worlds, a GT-looking frame with a plastic pie-plate, it goes on for ever!

Hmm, thanks, I never knew that about "next blog" so you might be only the second to last person to know that. "bike porn" now has competition. :-)

It is fun. You can go to fresh blogs every day, and bookmark the cool ones. Grow your exposure by leaving a comment on their blog, they'll usually comment back. Keep on rollin' dude!

Ha! I've just been doing this very thing myself (i.e., blog surfing), and that's how I stumbled upon your blog. There are so many fantastic bike-oriented blogs out there! Seeing all the pictures makes me want to ride ... badly. Unfortunately, I'm pretty much limited to my commute these days. Perhaps as I pine for warmer days to come, I'll just buy a bunch of bike gear to ease the itch.
