My friend Jon and I have been doing a bi-weekly radio show. They’ll be posted here for archival purposes.
A few more photos from the last R&A Cycles Series. Natalie ended up placing third in the Cat 4 Women’s Stylish Solutions competition and winning a free pair of Bont Shoes. She also got to hop on the podium!

55cm Mondia Cyclocross Build
Since I’ve been doing the bike racing thing, I decided I’d have a shot at cyclocross racing as well. I got this frame about two years ago now from my friend Ben in Portland. I initially intended this to be the one bike I had in NYC, but after I got hit in Queens I stripped this frame and decided to build up a proper road frame — with caliper brakes and a bottle holder. The build is pretty straightforward, I think I basically just looked at Chabanov’s Richard Sachs frame and said “copy that.”
5700 105 rear derailleur
Columbus EL tubing
Some of it is a mix of stuff I had laying around; a Thomson stem and Selle Italia SLR that were at my parents house, Challenge Grifo 32c tires and Paul brakes that Ben gave to me with the frame and some old Ultegra to Open Pro wheels I’ve ridden for about three years now on a cruiser.
6800 Ultegra cranks with cross-specific 46-36 chainrings.
Love this “Original Swiss Bike” decal. More original than the Ritchey Swiss cross?
I’ve never been the best at routing the front brake cable, we’ll see how this plays out through the season.
5700 105 brifters as well. I am glad that Shimano has routed the derailleur cable along the handlebars now as well. I can’t tell too much of a difference between these and my 6700 Ultegra brifters on my Tarmac SL3, but we’ll see.
Ben’s somewhat-used Challenge Grifo 32s. Hopefully they still have some life left in them.
I used an Origin 8 threaded to threadless stem adapter to be able to use my Thomson stem with the threaded fork. So far so good, doesn’t look too shabby either.
The Wipperman Connex 10sG chain has been the only thing I’ve had trouble with so far. The master link (towards the far left in the picture) has been somewhat stiff and caused the chain to skip when it passes through the pulleys in the rear derailleur. I’ve since replaced it with a KMC MissingLink and had no issues.
The paint is a little beat, but I’m not too worried about it. One thing I love about the frame is the two-part braze-on cable guides. One to pass the cable through so it sits in the braze-on at the correct angle. Nice touch.
Rear brake bridge (with bird poop)
After all my pictures, someone passing by alerted me to a white wall a few blocks down. I think I like the red wall the most, but I thought I’d put this photo up as well.

A photo I took of Natalie and Kyle near Mt. Baker when I was home. We were trying to get to a fire lookout that Kyle is doing a photo project on, but we got snowed out.
I made some stickers based on an old Long Island Railroad logo I dug up. Let me know if you’d like one.

Since I’m home for a bit, I have a ton of these laying around. If you’re interested, email your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send one to you.
