Life Behind Bars Season 3: Semenuk, Fairclough, and Vink

First episode of LBB this year, and it’s a gooder. Hyped - long episode with tons of great riding. DH shredding, moto, and B winning his Olympics (games of bike).

Locked gate? You think that’ll stop me? On Friday I climbed Whitney Portal Road. 11 miles with about 4,200ft elevation gain. The part past the locked gate (which starts at the bottom of the road leading to first switchback) was the best bit. No cars! Just solitary suffering, with the occasional g’day to a hiker. Greta day on a bike.

Well, he was sorta asking for it, dressing in such flammable clothing.

if he didnt want to get set on fire, he should have stayed indoors

Psh, I bet he’s just saying she set him on fire. False immolation claims like this make me sick.

And besides, if it had been a real immolation, the body has ways of shutting the heat down so you don’t get burned.

He had a history of playing with matches.

This. This makes me happy. Everyone that replied, you are my freaking heros

The fact that Katie bough a nice lock that locks on both sides of the shackle (you have to cut twice) bought her enough time to not get her bike stolen this morning. Woohoo.

We all have our secrets.  Brooklyn has Rosko, Santa Barbara has Stinner and those of us in SF, by the good graces of the fog and hills, have Falconer Cycles

A Bay Area native, whose decades of kicking up dirt and grime on and off the road, have led him to a relaxed but energized life of making custom steel frames. From 26” cruiser to 26” mtb crusher, cargo to cross (and really whatever you want to ride), his TIG welded works are always a breath of fresh air.

Cam’s frame have a simple, subtle beauty that is as natural as the steel they’re built with.  Absent of fancy lugs, with an emphasis on function before form, a Falconer is made to be race ready or to explore that fire road which was previously impassable.

Cycling in the Bay Area is notoriously homegrown and DIY.  Pioneers making it work for themselves and in turn, creating a culture that is inherently as strong and pure as the creators themselves. Cameron falls under this category.  A humble and intelligent individual who’s craft has been honed but by no means is he done growing.  Like the exact machines he uses, Cam always measures twice and cuts once, but the difference is that not one of his cuts is ever the same.
