The summer started out great with an early ride into Denali. Then a trip up north for work. While on that trip, it just so happened I destroyed my foot. I mean DE-stroyed! So I went into training as a couch surfer for about three months. Before the summer was up, I needed desperately to take at least one trip out of town. This trip into the Wrangells was a life saver. Here is a trailer to the short film that I will be working on this winter. All and all, I'm just happy to be back on the bike.

Here is my first attempt at a frame bag. It turned out to be a very nice bag that is simple, and water resistant/proof (it has been sitting out in a couple of rainstorms, and then inside is still dry!). It is made from a basic ripstop fabric from the local fabric store. There is one zipper and nine holds (and I will probably put a couple of more, we just ran out of 1" velcro). It should hold a lot of goodies. Luckily, it's on a Fat Tire bike so I was able to make it five inches wide in the front and taper to four inches on the rear. Hopefully, I will be able to try it out this coming weekend. My future plan is to make a matching seat bag and handlebar sling which will hold a sleeping pad, and raft or shelter. I will upload more pictures when I get them done!
