Greg and I went to see another one of my favorite bands: Municipal Waste. Just like Early Man, the last time they came through Atlanta I was working late and couldn’t catch them. They played an awesome set for a rowdy crowd that included people hanging upside-down from the rafters (and falling straight to the floor onto their heads), and dudes with boogie-boards stage diving and literally ‘crowd surfing’. If that isn’t awesome, I don’t know what is!
Such a team effort here. Austin Lawless sourced the new pumpkin via Stricktly German… Matt Foerst got the old unit disassembled, and re-shimmed & installed in the new housing… and David Jones & Wes Pitts dropped by to help get the pumpkin bolted back up to the rear subframe! Mega MEGA thanks to all that helped get this mess sorted out! It is too awesome to have this diff back in the car!!!
Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it out to SEMA this year, so I threw a quick business card design together for Antonio since he would be in Vegas for the show. I utilized the same concrete projection technique I used for the Motorsport Nationals collateral, and I think it turned out pretty slick.
I picked up a new wheelset for the Peugeot. In lieu of my envy for the ability to do track stands and pedal backwards, I’ve decided to give the fixed gear a go. I kept finding myself gaffling my friend’s fixed bikes at every stop so I could get my trick on. I went ahead and removed the old brake levers and eliminated the rear caliper. Eugene gave me a new long-reach caliper for the front, so I have a lot more stopping power than before.All-in-all, I think this wheelset really gives the bike an aggressive look. Kinda like a beefed up street-rod – it keeps it’s vintage style, but with a bit more muscle to it.
