Dan Ryan's Hong Kong. One in Kowloon. Typical American food joint but kind a nice after too much Chinese food. Bar tender is swift and clever.

Kartell shop in SF. I used to like this brand but now they are so plasticky! Right now they are having many things on sale but not much taker.. I can see why.

A16, Italian restaurant on Chestnut st. in SF. Pizza is chewy and yummy Napoli style. Pasta, we had fungi with own chopped pasta tasted fine. Booze price seemed to be high for quantity. I want to sit by counter next time since they were butchering whole pig while we were there. $70 for four.

Amgen Tour of California at San Jose. It was rainy and not good condition. Saw Lance for the 1st time. Amazing bikes and athletes.

Paul Auster, Man in the dark. I like his stuff. It always has some kind of life twist as if life is stranger than fiction kind a feel but this one did not have twist at all which made him just a fictional writer. Let's hope next one is better.

Fuji Obey with Tioga Spyder. Decided not to drill hole on fork after a few shops saying they do not recommended. Tokyu hands did it so I think it is OK but bike shop around here just do not want to take risk. I might just add one to the rear. Too bad I have to run cable from front to the back. I like the simplicity of current look. Weight only 7kg now. It is the lightest bike I owned. Rode yesterday to work without brake and was a bit scary.

This one is cool too in Gulf color combo!

Just bought a book called Cosmic Motors by Daniel Simon. The book has forward by who else but Syd Mead, my futuristic mentor!! Daniel is darn good too. His sense in designing detail are scary good. Love this bike.

I love this Fire extinguisher design. They say I can buy it at Home Depot but I have not yet seen, it. If I do, I am gonna grab it.

It's Your Ride from Cinecycle on Vimeo.

Cool Fixie video.

love this bicycle video $10

15mph average. I commute around 10 miles one way. With MTB 15mph is average. Now I have road bike, see if I could improve on that number. but since it is Fixie, I need to see if I want brake or learn how to lock the rear...

Monocle mag. I have been reading since its 2nd year. just right balance of design and info. I hope they do not quit or ran out of IQ.

Evernote. try to remember everything by capturing by note or camera on Treo. They have good engine to translate them into word. for example, you can capture label of good wine out night out and it is stored to your cloud PC by picture, word or tag. so far my Treo rez is not good or what but it can not seen to recognize/translate too good but I will try a bit more.
