Elephant Journal Review

Check out the Alchemist product review in Elephant Journal

Read it, “Like it”, comment on it (but please be nice).

Big props to Jussi, who purchased a “T.V Sucks, Ride your Bike” t-shirt.  I had to adjust the shipping settings in the checkout because Jussi resides in FINLAND! He heard about us through the Waltworks blog. Thanks, Jussi, for bearing with us as we figured out how to set-up shipping.  Jussi also inquired about More Cowbell.  That is slated to come out in late summer, in time for CX season.  Thanks also to Walt for the “referral”.

Speaking of Walt . . . He stripped a 32 tooth cog from an old steel cassette and welded it to a 16 tooth cog for the bike-mower to make it easier to turn the cranks.  The 32 tooth cog was kinda flimsy without the cassette, so he welded a 28 tooth cog to it to give it extra support.  That Walt.  Heesa-kinda-crazy.  I’ll get a pic of it in a future post.  He’s going to give the fork a little extra rake too.  Walt also installed a starnut, and he let me steal a couple old 29er tires out of his trash.  I swear.   I may not be allowed in his shop anymore because I seem to always leave with my pockets full of his stuff.  The bike-mower should be fully operational soon.  Pics of that to come too.

Tomorrow is another night shift, so if the patients give me a break, you can expect another post.  Hopefully, something interesting will come in.





I got me a bike-mower. Jealous?

Sh*t yeah!  The bike-mower is aliiiiive!  It’s so cool, and so freaky, the rest of the bike and mower world will be drooling over it.   From spandex clad roadies to John Deere, trucker-cap wearing yardmen,  the admiration really doesn’t end.  Walt (Waltworks) Wehner built this baby up in an hour. The man has skeels.  His neighbor saw it as we were testing it out, and she couldn’t keep her eyes off of it.   We finally had to pry her off of it like a pre-teen girl at a Justin Bieber concert.  I mean, it is gorgeous.  With a bigger track cog, a star nut, and some Waltworks decals, it will be even more crunk and voluptuous.  The ingredients:

1. Orange fixie track bike that’s nearly gotten me killed a dozen times cus it ain’t got no brakes.

2. Scott push mower that’s lasted a remarkable 6 years since we moved to Boulder. I used to curse at it, now I love on it.

3. Waltgenuity

More photos a video to come.
