I'm glad these guys aren't in charge anymore

From John Boehner and Eric Cantor's letter to the President. It contains this and other great ways to save money:

Terminate Federal Transportation Funding For “Non-Motorized” Transportation Projects
The Federal government is currently spending $25 million a year to fund four Non-motorized Transportation Pilot programs. This program is designed to fund a network of “non-motorized transportation infrastructure facilities” to encourage residents to walk or bike rather than using a car. Refocusing Federal resources on transportation projects with a federal nexus would save taxpayers $125 million over five years.

Check this out

Here's a great post about the frame displays at the new No Brakes shop. It's great to see a Kazane front and center, but the point is that this is the best frame display I've ever seen. I can't wait to come check out the new shop.

News flash - Cannondale gets a new family member!

So Dorel just bought Ironhorse That gives Dorel the impressive lineup of Cannondale, GT, Mongoose and Schwinn. Ironhorse never was an impressive brand but at times had some decent mountain bikes. We all see where Schwinn has gone. When Dorel bought them they assured dealers that there would be two distinct lines - one for department stores and one for bike shops. All you see now are the crappy ones at Target. the bike industry is kind of like the car industry was before things fell apart. Big companies buy up smaller companies and kill the what made the smaller companies cool. I don't really care about Ironhorse, but this latest development kind of shows that the claim that Cannondale will be better doesn't really hold water.
For that I say "Adios, amigo." When I was in high school I mowed lawns to save up for a Cannondale 2.8 frameset. I was proud of it because I'd seen pictures of the PA factory it was made in, not like the Diamondback mountain bike it was replacing. Now, no more.

The shoe is a joke! OK???

The Kazane collabo shoe is a total joke but a lot of people are apparently taking it seriously. I didn't think it was hard to tell that it's a grandpa shoe from Payless with my logos photoshopped on. I don't do sneakers. Never will. I do fast bikes.
