So last night I checked the FGBC blog and spied
this post from Jonny G. Very functional riding caps, totally stylish (even on Jonny) and a bargain at 20 "bones"! Lori and I decided that this cap was just my style: Notice how the peak can protect almost any snoz from sun or rain! So I says to myself, gotta get me one of them hand-made cappos ... And as it just so happens ... I was out for a ride today and stopped in at the Olympia shoppe to pre-order some studded 29-er tires for my Karate Monkey (oh yes - the snow is coming!) ... an who comes in but Jonny, the cappo salesman himself ... After each of our businesses is done (sorry Jonny, I still don't believe your cx-er was making any noise - you just need a shoppe fix!) I offer to ride into Wolseley with him for some extra distance before reversing back to my place ... so we get to his abode and he says " wanna see some caps?" ... " why of course" says I ... Charlene G. just happens to be avail and the caps appear (in their plenty - you know ya want one!) ... I grab my fav and the fit is perfect ... sold ... here's the 20 bones ... thanks ... hey can ya take a pic for the blog ... snap: Quickest and easiest transaction I've every made! So I don my helmet over my sweet new riding cap and blast home ... time to show off to Lori ... Hmmm ... so yah, it is a perfect riding cap ... and as it turns out it can cover even my big snoz! There's a view I don't get to see often ! Great caps for sure ... fit great, feel excellent and totally stylish (how am I doin Jonny?) ... you know ya wannit!!!
Oh sure, just a week or two after I post info about Surly wool caps on the Oly site (for something like $70 each) Jonny offering local, custom ones for $20. Actually, they look pretty nice.
Tom, what type of tires did you order? I have my studded cx tires for my Karate Monkey but I was thinking of getting some wider ones for this winter. BTW, after a bout a year of having the Karate Monkey I finally have it set up properly (as of about 5 minutes ago). Some new brake levers, a Paul front derailleur replacement thingy (I forget the name but it's really cool) and a different rear derailleur and cassette everything is finally operating smoothly. Bring on the winter! Well actually I wouldn't mind a little more summer, but I'd prefer winter to whatever the current weather is called.
