Day off

It's my day off, but I love my job so much that I came in to work on my own bike. While I was here Patrick from Pedal Consumption came in and dropped off a package for the BLAM. Patrick, the shoes fit.

So shiny

Profile Racing sent their contribution to the BLAM's Bridgetown Hustle on Friday. Holy sweetness. Put this stuff on your bike and instantly you will be ready to race.

not enough hours

I haven't posted a lot recently because I am getting ready for Bridgetown Hustle. So, enjoy the boobs and we can get back to consistant laughs after this next weekend.

I am awkward with my body

Yeah.... I was surprised to see that I had a bike boner, but there it was... clear as day. I tucked it into my elastic waistband and went about my business.

Alice, M.I.A.

Alice has been missing in action. He showed up to eat my mango chunk and then disappeared into the night.

Legs for days

Married Kyle sure does love that shirt. Why he doesn't wear lycra tights with it all the time, I don't know. So hot.... ish.

Wet Cement

I wrote this, giggled, and ran away, but by the time I went out to take a picture of it the dudes who laid the cement covered it up. This sweet scenario happened about three times until they left and I wrote it for the last and final time. If anyone asks.... it wasn't me and the last stuff I wrote was all a lie.

So true

Tis the off season

Brandon and his boots from the moon.
Patrick, hidden L.D.R. Kyle, Marcy, and Tim
Spiderman's 2nd cousin, Jimmyman


I have shown you pictures of what goes on here at 21st Ave Bicycles during the off season, so I thought I should show a little bit of our other half, The Fat Tire Farm. As you can tell no one there likes to have fun. I am the only girl between both places so it's like having a bunch of brother's. Older one's who like to startle you and put stuff in your hair.

Wings of an Angel

I am a majestic creature.


Landon (call him Lando. Star Wars rules) has a sweet little company you may have heard of.... Tonic Fab, anyone? Not only does he kick so much ass on the bike, he kills it off as well. Say hi to him at the BLAM. He may give you a hi-five. I don't know. He doesn't just give those out to anyone. I mean, you're pretty cool. You've got to be. You're here, right?

Saw this at the Freeman Transport

Ben is busy

Ben, the guy who is behind all of the BLAM's fliers and who got us the space at Nemo, was up last night screen printing some fliers for the event. Rad, dad.

It's a tough job

Working at a bike shop is filled with danger. Stationary objects can jump out at you and strike at any given moment. L.D.R. Kyle fell victim to a tool box. I wanted to leave the hair/skin combo where it was, but no one was with me on that. All alone with my sweet ideas.

now you're a man, a man, man, man

My boy, Clazy, just turned 20 and overnight his mustache came in all thick and dark like you see in the picture above. What's next? Pubes!
EDIT: he got butt hurt when he heard what I wrote and showed me that he in fact does have pubes. He does. I saw them... all two of them.

Our new apprentice

This is Rubinn, the 20 year old 11 year old. Normally, I am not a fan of kids. I am just not that kind of girl. I don't want kids of my own. I don't get all mushy about kids being awesome, but when I saw Rubin in his little apron facing his head tube, I thought I was going to die he is so freaking cute. Not only that, he acts like an adult. It's kind of strange to have someone so young to be cooler than you.


Mitch called me up and asked me if I needed anymore pallets for the berm we were building. I said yes thinking that he was maybe going to bring them over in a car to my house or tell us where to get them seeing as how we have access to trucks. No, that was not the case. He strapped them to his back and rode it on his brakeless Hufnagel to the shop. Well done, friend.

Team Berm

We are 24/7. That's right. Kyle with his man stance and me with muffs..... ear muffs. God, you're a perv, dude. Why do you always have to take it there? Anyway sicko, this berm action is going in Nemo's parking lot for the BLAM on the 5th. So sweet.

Go Vikes!

Big ups to my boys, the Vikings. Dallas, suck on my ass..... not in the cool sexy way either. Next week it's against the Saints. This is a big game for the Vikings. I hope Mr. Favre doesn't turn into the mad bomber and throw a bunch of picks like I have known him to do while he played for the shitty Green Bay Packholes. You suck, Packers... forever!

One too many D.U.I.s?

That's the only thing I can think of that would explain this build. Either that or he knows how to weld, but doesn't know anything about engines. What would complete this bicycle dream, you ask? I am surprised you had to ask. The answer to that question is this: an American flag doo rag. Nothing says America like patriotic head wear..... and losing your license.

I knew a guy who was pedaled to death

He looks nice, but he will rip your heart out and feed it to you before you die.
I got Death Pedal in the mailsy today. I am not going to lie, I am going to open one up when I get home and watch it. Perhaps, I will rewind a part or two. I may pause it at key moments in the film and inspect the still frame. Who knows? Not me. I mean, I have an idea of how it is going to go down, but nothing is set in stone. I may be fully clothed when I watch it. I may just wear some socks. The sky is the limit, as they say. You, yes you, can win a copy. You might even win the copy I viewed with socks on. Come to the BLAM. Please. Come and win stuff or I will be bummed out. Why do you want to bum me out? Why?


I drink the sugar free ONLY because the redbull with sugar gives me a sore throat. Some people would take that as a sign that they probably shouldn't drink it all together, but not me, friends. Not me.


People ask me all the time, "Amanda, how can you be gay when you work with such hot dudes?"
Alex from Transient sent what I thought was one hip pouch and then when I opened it up there was several all packed together like a russian doll. Sweet. Get you some at the BLAM.

Team Berm

I know. I know. My ear guards are sweet. We are building our free standing berm for the BLAM coming up in my garage. While we were in there pounding wood Palmer was chowing down on some dog food straight from the bag. Lindsay was thrilled..... and by thrilled I mean pissed. Personally, I love Basset Hounds. Her, not so much.

I love lycra

take it in... all of it.

bummer vol.2

Bright side is he has good form.

Bareback Pump Track Ass Attack

Here is LDR Kyle working on his fitness. The video was put together by Mike. Incase you have never had the pleasure of meeting Mike, he is one of the most down to earth guys around.

I am bad to the bone

The truck was asking for it.

Knog you very much

Knog sent a package of sweet stuff to give out as prizes for the BLAM in February. Hell yeah! Pay no attention to my gimp hand. I went through a lot of PT to be able to give thumbs up. Originally, my goal was to be able to shake my fist at whipper snappers, but since I moved out here to Portland, I noticed I am shaking my fist less and thumbs upping more. Thumbs up, Knog! The BLAM loves you.

Sunday Nights at Grand Central

here i am playing last sunday night at grand central. i thought dale, the guy working the camera, was taking a picture instead of video. i guess this video explains why there was no flash. if you want to take on lindsay and her sweet game or hear some house music mixed on the 1s and 2s by yours truly, then join us every sunday from 10-2.

Long Distance Relationship Kyle

LDR Kyle is on this bloggy blog a bunch too. Here he is shredding the gar. Yeah, gar. Not gnar. It's the new ever evolving terminology for being rad. Maybe you didn't get the newsletter. If you didn't I wanted to make sure you were up to date just in case you said gnar and then every one gave you the stink eye because that shit is 2009. Long Distance Relationship Laura, make sure you say gar too. Vermont needs to be in the know.
