...your true love will give to you Avid Ultimate CX brakes. I have tried many different brakes on cross bikes. These old school XT canti brakes have been my favorite. Yeah, yeah it is a bad picture, but it fits the whole theme of the blog.
I was raised in the "hood", self-taught to survive on scraps of old inner tubes and changing bike tires with my teeth. Life is a struggle for me not to be another statistic that so many become after being raised in a caucasion middle class family. I now am a husband, bike mechanic, land lord, stay at home dad, and wannabe mountain bike racer.
