  • New Clementine Courier Site!

    One of my best buds Josh and his gang at Clementine Courier just launched a new website, and damn, does it look amazing or what? Make sure to check out the new site, browse rider bios, and if you’re in the city and need something quick be sure to hit these guys up!


  • SF is Rad!



    Oh man, San Francisco has been amazing so far. Despite the rain throughout the past two days, we’ve really been getting after it; riding, skating, eating burritos and exploring the city. Monday morning we hit our first skate park out in Alameda by 10 am, followed by a trip to “Hood Games” in Oakland, then a quick stop by Bicycle Fabrications, and finally ended up at Pacifica Skate Park. So after skating four very different parks we decided it was time for a little road ride to finish off the day. It also started raining, so we embraced rule #9 (screw rules) and headed out to seize the carp.

    Riding over the Golden Gate Bridge was pretty surreal, especially with all the fog and rain. When we arrived in Marin we did a few climbs and a few ultra scary descents. After a couple hours we were all feeling pretty accomplished, so some Pakistani food and beers were in order. All in all I’d say I had an amazing first day out in SF. I made some new friends, learned back tails in tranny, got muddy and was all smiles. What more could you ask for?

    Today we woke up around 7 for a ride leaving out of the Mash store, but not before stopping for coffee at Fourbarrel (I’ve had way too much coffee today). It had been raining since we woke up so I was well-prepared for the soak that was upon us. We rode with some of the Mash bros for a minute and then met up with Walton to cruise south and hit San Bruno. I was feeling pretty cooked by the time we got up San Bruno, especially since I’d only eaten a croissant. Oh well, I’m on vacation to get pitted so cheers to that. Check out some more photos from my trip so far below.

    My buddy Josh and I go way back, so it’s been nice to see him popping up around the internets these days. He and his crew of messengers at Clementine Courier recently had a little portrait session and these were a couple of my favorites. Check out the rest here – there are a ton of great shots.



  • Josh’s Cervelo Super Prodigy

    Damn, I’m glad my buddy Josh finally joined Facebook. Josh has been one of my best buds for while, before he ever had any interest in bikes, let alone became a co-owner of a newly successful NYC bike messenger known as Clementine Courier. Before joining the underworld that is social media, we’d talk every month or so via telephone for hours (watch out man, I’ll be calling you soon)…both filling each other in on all the excitement (believe me, I can still find some in Burlington) and reminiscing about old high school memories. I’ve taken countless trips to the city, visiting friends, checking out shops, cruising with Josh…and whether it’s tagging along on his daily runs, or trying to shake morning sickness after a night of drinking, – he’s always positive and knows how to show his guests a good time.

    Anyway…I’m planning on getting down there to visit soon! Until then, here’s Josh Rovner’s newly built Cervelo Super Prodigy race bike, equipped for the extremes with a Campagnolo Super Record 11 grouppo among other choice bits…now only if I could get some more photos (cough, cough – you better still have this when I come visit). This beauty is pictured in front of King Kog – our friends down in BK.
