If you know me, you know “No Alarm Mondays.” If you know TCB, a wake up at from #sameder at 10am is horrifying. #flowergirl #thatpaycheckmoney #bloomyourfacewithmyfist #bloomthat
Cetma for the win!
This was me, before my official ‘bike nerd’ days here on Tumblr. This was in 2005, with my Raleigh Technium with a single chain ring up front and skate shoes. I had been living in NYC for only a year, and wow, I had no idea of all the life-changes I’d encounter over the next few years.
That front rack is a CETMA Rack, which I loved. When I bought my fancy single speed NYCBikes bike, it had a carbon fork and the rack wouldn’t fit. BUMMER. But now? Well, for my new adventures it’ll fit on the Cannondale, so I’m going to be buying another CETMA when my tax refund rolls in.
I’m trying hard not to simply BUY my bike adventures, but I know I can not ride 25+ miles at a time carrying everything I own on my back. That’s about 23lbs of stuff, and it’s just too much. I’ve debated getting a rear rack, and then some sort of pannier system, but I’ve ridden that way before, and I just don’t want to own panniers again.
Besides, that CETMA rack could carry anything. I loved it.
moving some boxes…

sorry for the lack of posts. my new setup is i’ve got the 3 rail on the front of my repurposed rockhopper that i usually use as my all-purpose commuter with some mtb thrown in the mix. i did a s24o two nights ago between work days and used the cetma differently from how i normally do—as a pannier/touring rack, which it really isn’t. but it worked really well anyways.
Missing foot, no idea why. Digital glitch or omen?
