Do you want to work with me?

I am the boss and when I get back from San Francisco I'm going to be hiring a staff. Do you want to work in Portland's first Chrome store? Email me your resume!

The cat is out of the bag

Ok, everyone knows now and you should too. The reason I left 21st is to open/run the Chrome store coming to Portland. Yeah... I'm the boss. I would never leave 21st for another shop, but an opportunity like this, I just couldn't pass up. Plus, with all of my hand surgeries, wrenching on bikes is painful. I am leaving for Chrome HQ in San Francisco on Monday. Get ready y'all... we're about to have an adventure!

Dirty mits

Dirty hands are part of the trade, unless you are Sean and work with gloves. Sometimes after work I would go out and be a little embarrassed about how dirty they were. Then I'd see another mechanic out and their hands looked like mine and I knew I was in good company. There is something to be said about working with your hands. A sense of accomplishment after a job well done. I am going to miss it. In reality after all of my hand surgeries and the more surgery I need, being a mechanic right now isn't the best idea.... but, I will miss it.

Chinese Viking Jam

Julian played this last night on our radio show, The Chinese Viking, and I about flipped my shit. It sounds kind of acidy at first and then the vocals drop.... holy shit. So good. Right up my alley.
