Take Me to the Top

I may write SPRFLS (updated daily!), but at heart I'm just another trend whore. So when I saw that topload stems were making a comeback, and thought about how a little more rise would help my 37-year-old back, I went digging in the crates:

Much better.

P.S. I'm gonna try and start updating this on a weekly basis, at least. It might not be much sometimes, but what the hell.

Started a Flickr page where I'm just going to start uploading everything, riding or not. We'll see how long THAT lasts. It's over at

Not gonna quit this blog quite yet, though. Then again, if it keeps raining every day, I might never take a riding photo ever again.

How I Roll.

Sometimes I leave the backpack home and just ride around with my little point and shoot (a 7.2 megapixel Casio Exilim EX-Z70). It's slim enough to fit in a pocket, and takes decent photos as long as you don't want to shoot action. And if you don't need a flash. Or much of a zoom. Half the time I forget I have it and don't use it at all.

Anyway, lately I've been just randomly shooting down/across at my bike as I roll down the street. Maybe it'll be a summer-long series. Pavement! Crosswalks! Sidewalks! Grass! Cobblestones! (Maybe not cobblestones, I wouldn't be able to focus on anything, and I'd probably drop the camera.) Here's a couple just for the heck of it, taken somewhere around Spring Street and Broadway:

Seeley Gets Luc-E

Can't say I know Jake Seeley all that well. Or at all, in fact.

What I do know is this: a) he's on Sunday flow, and b) he Luc-E'd to turndown 180 the Pace ledge, which has seen a lot of action over the years.

Other things worth noting are that this took place on June 24th, that he didn't pull this particular attempt (but did pull the next one, which I didn't get a good shot of, so it's still plenty legit), and that he would have given it another go but security decided we were done for the day.

I suppose I should have shot the rollout, but I wasn't using the flash (in deference to the video cameras) and the frames-per-second rate was pretty slow. Not like anyone checks this blog anymore anyway.
