This episode takes you with me
as I work on my newfound project - a mid eighties Kuwahara 12 speed (A very Japanese bike. Hard to imagine with that giant freakin' Rising Sun right on the name badge, eh?). I'm tearing it down to the frame and fork, Chris is helping me paint it, and then I'm turning it into a fixie
with a completely extra rear wheelset with a 3-speed hub for races. Most of the time it will be a fixed-gear single-speed and I will enjoy its total simplicity as just a sweet ridin' piece of steel. I've rescued it from a garage where it was literally rusting to death. Please stay tuned over the next few months as I make this baby into a bitchin' ride. I can paint a new name on the downtube, so I'm taking requests! Also, if anybody can find more information about this bike model, I'd love to hear about it.
So, I'm going to cover the Rocky Raccoon 100
and still need a volunteer for some of the video taping. Some of the biggest names in running will be there and you will be able to walk right up to them and say things like "Hey, I heard you run fast. But do you drive a Dodge Ram like Emily from Zentri?" Or "Running 100 miles sound tough. Do you drill speed holes in your shoes or wear a Bento Box in your shorts?" I need to hear from you ASAP, so email me at texafornia at gmail.com.
I also played some great audio on this show from listeners, including a cancer survivor and an XTERRA hopeful in Switzerland. Enjoy!
UPDATE! The music you heard on this podcast is "Gone" by Shadoz Edge. You can click here to listen to more samples of their music and find out how to buy it. I was really impressed with each song, so check them out!
