The Tempo was up for some changes. I am really stoked about the flat bars.img_0275img_0276img_02771

I think it rides a whole lot nicer. Especially for my lower back. My chiropractor will approve.

ready for test flight

I think this is the final version of the bike/bag set-up. Everything is solid.


Tegan learned to ride his bike less the pedals. He can also ride with the pedals if you hold him steady at first. Such a joy!


more to come.

seat bag

After months of preparation and laziness, it finally comes together over this weekend. Some minor tweaking and it will be ready to go. We may build a lighter/waterproof version real soon. The new sewing machine worked fantastic. Janome Sewist 509.

I have an otterbox thathas been replaced twice at no cost to me.  While on the otterbox site, I noticed a photo contest.  Apparently, they thought this photo was worth 100 bucks:
