Bike Nirvana

It took me a while to figure out that all my bike evolution as an adult, with it's ebbs at full sussers, and flows at the singlespeed mantra, where really a journey back to the bliss of being 9 years old on my bmx bike. Transportation, freedom and fun all wrapped into one. I still haven't found that summer day heading to the park, baseball mit on the bars, wet swim trunks sticking to my legs, the warm breeze, and sizing up a curb to jump...but I haven't forgotten it either.
P.S. Here's the next-gen.

Skookum Mud

I took the Skookum with me to a Capitol Forest Sooper D race to take pictures. I rode the course to find the best photo locations and found some really great mud. Capitol has got to have the craziest mud in western Washington. The day could have been a lot sloppier too. It had been dry all day and all night.
In the pics above...I wiped some mud off the Phil logo. Phil has been put to some serious abuse while attached to the Skookum, mud like there is no tomorrow, tangled wire, jumps and lot's of singletrack.
