I’ll be in Portland this weekend at the Oregon Convention Center to report on the latest in handcrafted bike goodness. I’ve already spoken with a few of the builders who will be there and there should be some interesting goodies.
I haven’t quite figured out yet how I’ll do it, but I’ll have some goodies to give away: a Kryptonite New York 3.5′ chain lock (new – courtesy of Kryptonite), Swrve Dynamic pants (new, 30″ size), and various stickers. I’ll also bring a well used REI/Kenda 26″ studded MTB tire, because I have no use for said tire in California.
I’ll also have a handful of these goat free “53 miles per burrito” stickers from Zero Per Gallon to hand out. Comment here if you’ll be there and I’ll look for you.
I plan to mostly cover utility type bikes, but I’ll post plenty of fixed gear porn for you to lust over, as well as fun race worthy road and mountain bikes. Watch also for developments in the 29er world as well as 650B mountain bikes.
Look for me on Saturday and Sunday at the Oregon Convention Center. Consider subscribing to my Twitter feed if you want to find me and win stuff.
