This Week on the Web 2

Clear those tabs.  Here's an innovative take on flatland, make the rhythm rock to the bike:

I met this guy Joe while I was in NYC a couple of summers back.  A former architect, he builds and sells one bike at a time, each one of them unique.  I heard one of his employees, Krys was hit by a car and has a long road to recovery, maybe you can help.

Drinking alcohol may significantly increase problem solving skills (and your willingness to tell others they a wrong?).

Marla Streb says that bike shops need to clean their bathrooms, was she talking about the Rose?

Lot's is happening in the Yewtah bike scene.  Not only is the (almost) Whole Enchilada Enduro scheduled for this fall, Ali is sayin' that he will be putting on enduro races this summer.  Of course, the Tour of Utah is coming our way this summer with the Salt Lake City stage finishing downtown on 300 West, August 10 at 3:30-4:00pm.

With Fabian out for a bit, Fahzure's interest in the peloton has shifted.  With no Contador, Schleck in poor form, Martin down, Valverde back, Sanchez showing strong, this year's Tour De France is looking interesting.  What's that you say? Cadel? Well he seems to have enough on his plate to distract him (click to see tweets from Cadel's "better half"):
Yep, still holding on to her last name, going on a "bucks night out," blackmailing her hubby and retweeting her own tweets (which Stevil points out, is like drinking your urine).  My picks for the TDF? Sanchez, Voelker, Van Garderen.
