New HOT Wheels… mmm hmmm!

’09 Sponsor Developments
Introducing the new steed:
Many of you have been waiting to see the fruits of my new bike sponsor search. I’m holding true to my convictions and staying on a handbuilt American bike with 29inch wheels.

My new ride… a beautiful, Intense Spider 29 FRO

I will have many more pics to come, but I drove down to the Intense Factory here in SoCal yesterday and picked up this beauty in the ghia. I finally got a roofrack so I don’t have to shove it in the back seat like a piece of luggage.

As times change, and people too, we catch a wave and this is gonna be a fun one. I’m very happy to have Intense right down the road and great people who care about what I do. I used to ride a Spider, and am excited and proud to be back on one of Jeff’s bikes again. I think Intense is proud to have me back as well.

With the addition of Intense to the lineup, I will still be supported by the following great people and products in 2009.

NoTubes Wheels
Kenda Tires
GoreBikeWear
Giro Helmets

I choose these companies because I trust their goods and highly recommend them. Please give them love and tell them I sent you!

    Way to keep it real on the honest-made bike. Another advantage you get there (not with a cookie cutter bike) is the opportunity to ride and give feedback on prototypes, like the one in your photo.
    Awesome!
