This FYXO gallery made my heart swell!

FYXOLA-2

John had been talking up LA and for a long time I’d wanted to meet Kyle of Trackosaurus fame. I can still remember getting an email from him when he launched his blog in 2006 – a beautiful blue Ciocc was one of the feature bikes. Prior to FYXO, the only other websites vaguely related to fixed gear were Old Skool Track, Fixed Gear Gallery, and a thread in Bike Forums. Many ‘blogs’ have come, planned to take over the world, and gone in the same breath, and the stayers have stayed for good reason. The internet can be a bizarre playing field and I’m always excited to meet the people behind the brand, avatar or email.

Merckx Monday: The Sweater Story

MerckxSweater

Back in ‘85 I was asked to prepare a bike for Merckx to ride in a charity fun ride in Long Beach. I was asked to collect Eddy from his hotel and deliver him to the ride, which of course I was excited to do. He was quite engaging and easy to talk to, and as I was driving him to the start area I commented on how much I liked the sweater he was wearing. After we arrived and unloaded his bike I asked if I could take a couple of photos, and he was very obliging. After I snapped the photos, he promptly unzipped and handed the sweater to me saying it was his way of showing his appreciation for all that I had done for him. I wore it quite often after that, and I think at some point all of my children have worn it as well. Now it resides on the shelf of my closet, and every time I look at it I’m reminded of that special moment when I first met whom some call the greatest cyclist of all time.”

Supper rad formal portrait of Eddy and most definitely a rad sweater!
