It’s the time of year where the weather here can give you whiplash. 70 degrees one day, and 40 the next. Ugh.
Some friendly reminders as we head into the season:
My “regular” hours kicked back in last month. I’m in the shop 11-6 on Thursday, and Friday. I’m also there on Saturday from 10-3. No appointment is needed for those days.
Parts and accessory purchases made on my website still ship free within the state of Indiana. Purchases can also be made online, and picked up in store.
After weeks of not having much to talk about in the way of product, things have started to perk up-if only a little. I finally received a shipment of new Swift Industries bags. Including the new Kestrel Handlebar Bag. The good news? They’re very nice. The bad news? Supplies are limited. The also good news? Unlike previous years, I will be getting product on a somewhat regular basis throughout the season.
Rivendell have released their new step through frame, the Platypus. I have 2 frames available. Shoot me a message if you’re interested in building one of these bikes.
The George Saunders book “Lincoln in the Bardo” (affiliate link) is still rattling around in my head. As it turns out, several of you out there had already read it, and most liked it. I think the advantage I had was having the Bardo defined for me ahead of time. Had it not been for that, I would have been well confused.
The community over on my YouTube channel is growing by leaps and bounds. It truly is one of the nicest groups of people on the internet. The comment section is exactly the opposite of what you normally see, and I hope it never changes. If you haven’t already, join us!
What I’m reading: Why Buddhism is True: The Science and Philosophy of Meditation and Enlightenment (affiliate link).
What I’m listening to: The Tim Ferriss podcast episode 506. This was a long one, but if you’re interested in technology, blockchain and a host of other things (seriously, I’ll probably need to listen again just to take it all in), this was a good one.
