As I type this, I'm sitting in a Charlotte, NC, Westin, overlooking the city. My friends at Bike Magazine asked me to cover the North American Handmade Bicycle Show, updating their online readers about all the cool mountain bike gear being introduced to the public this weekend. I'll also be hanging out at the Shamrock Cycles booth, talking about my gorgeous new travel bike that the incredibly talented Tim O'Donnell built for me.
If you see a middle-aged hipster with a long beard and Shamrock hat in Charlotte, flag me down and have me buy you a beer. I'd love to talk bikes with you.
