Dave's the guy with a different bike every time I see him. Last night, Dave rode his Rock Lobster custom CX bicycle; he has it set up for touring right now.
Dave commutes by bike 30 miles from his home in Scotts Valley, California to his job in San Jose. In the evening he gets home on the bus. Scotts Valley is at 600 feet above seal level, and Dave must ride to an elevation of 1800 feet in the Santa Cruz mountains before descending into Santa Clara valley, crossing the San Andreas fault every day on his bike. Dave is a maniac.
On the bus we talk bike geek stuff. Last night we discussed sub-1kg carbon frames, SRAM's new road group, Dave mentioned Shimano's new compact crankset, and we talked a lot about how healthy fast food is for you. Enjoyable conversation makes the bus ride go much more quickly. Photo info: Rock Lobster custom bicycle by richardmasoner.
