Bike Stuff

Well tis the season, to get fat and think about next bike season!!! hmmm moto or mountain?

Anyway I sold my old ML8 and am planning on building up a new ML8 over the next couple of weeks , hoping to build it up all nice like, ya know. I have never been one for the "bling factor" but when good companies help a Luby out why not. I also have a new Peacock Groove on the way to build. The frame is something out of the minds of me and Erik Noren...Black Sunshine!!!!! I am hoping to finish that before the ML8 but who knows. All this bike stuff started when a guy came to look at my old ML8, he saw it and liked it....but also was looking for a good dirtbike....I said" well this is for sale" pointing to my '96 XR250 moto, I gave him a pretty good package price and he cut me a check....6 hours later I am looking at a '01 XR400, bigger, faster, Newer....for the same price!!! yep, I have me a big boy bike now. It needs some small stuff like plastics, but man it has some snort!! Between this and my XS750 I have some work to do!!!! the street bike will maybe become a Cafe Racer........well making poarts store runs on my fixie!! don't worry I haven't lost touch with cycling. Check out the below My new XR400 and XS750 (needs alot of work)



The First Person to email me 2 things in the pic above that were made or destroyed during "the Luby In St. Cloud" days will win some cheesy gift

Father Luby

Being a Dad Rules!!!!!!

yeah it gets really tough at times but thats life. Layla is really growing and she now smiles because she is happy and not just farting or pooping. Today Alison had plans so it was just Layla and I. The Pics below pretty much describe our day I picked out her outfit myself. Notice the rabbit slippers they were just a little big is all......and when Alison got home we tried on her Halloween costume (not the litle devil outfit I wanted)

bike stuff to come later

She was thinking..."what the F*^!k are they thinking"

Moto pics near Ft. Collins

This is from the Last Moto ride I did, I was suprised at how green it was up there, normally around here it is just brown. We did some high speed 2 track stuff and then found some sweet Single track, I wouldn't mind hitting on my Mountian bike some time.

Thursday, July 26, 2007


Well Downville was awsome, I think I only want to do one race a year and it would be the all mountian Downieville.

Me and Mike west showed up grabbed some bikes and caught a shuttle up to the start of the DH course and road it with a few of the other Maverick Crew. The Downhill was fucking Rad, it was much better riding it on a 6 in. travel bike, than on my single speed. It was great to be in Downieville again, first time I was there was for single speed worlds, that was a blast and a whole nother story. Anyway I set up our tent on the Main street and found out the product we needed for our tent didn't show up, so there I was, a tent with nothing but a demo bike in it. I looked over and saw the Beer sponsers setting up with out a tent, a light bulb turned on over my head, And I asked them if they wanted to share my tent. Well the Maverick booth turned into the maverick beer tent. It was fun a couple photos below, the river Jump was pretty wild, I was able to spend some time at the bar Sat. night with Blind Bobby, that guy is so fricking cool, racing while legally blind (if you want to know more, you have the net search him)

Wow alomost a month with out posting?? Sorry but it's been crazy, work has been ,well work. And it is getting close to the baby time, I had to move my bikes out of the bike room, and into the garage. that is when it really hit, but I am getting excited. In other Baby news, I had heard some bad news that some very close friends of Alison and I lost there baby, Best wishes to them, it is very hard to hear. And also (end with a happier note) Congrats To speedbuggy and his lady on there little girl. Cheers dude!!

I head out to Downieville tomarrow for the D-ville classic, I am not riding it but working, but I booked an early flight so Hopefully I can go for a ride once I get there....Haven't been there since SSWC and I was on a 1X1 with an 80mm fork, and now I will be on a full squish with a 150mm f & R if I get a ride in.

Anyway I will try to post more once I get back, hopefully things settle down and I am not so fucking tweaky stressed

Surly Cross check 44/17
Maverick ML7 Single 32/18
Surly Steamroller 42/17

it's only a six mile commute, but sometimes it is hard to get going in the morning when the Espresso Machine is at Work

Moab Moto Trip

Well here it is the first video of Moab.....I am such a rookie when it comes to mott, but it's fun. This is a section that Al told me to get the Camera out, some one will crash

Yes Moab was Fun. We had a few flat tires
At Camp on slick rock we had a very spure of the moment party...Al headed to bed, then a Few locals stopped bye that New Ariel and Abby, they brought friends, before we knew it we had 20 people and a shit load of fire works.

Anyway it was hard not to go ride our Mountain bikes, but all I had was my Moto. I had a shit load of fun, the last day I dumped my bike pretty hard but was able to ride it out.

Also, we finished a ride, and were getting ready to leave when some dude comes flying up in a truck and starts talking to us.."hey I'm going to base jump off of tombstone in 45 min. if you guys want to watch" so we figureed why not, we wairted and waited and then finally saw a little figure on the cliff, then he jumped.

More Big News!!!!

Yep more big News!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First off check out the ring Al(our head engineer at Mav.) and I designed and made today, we found a chunk of Ti and wanted to see what we could come up with, Alison is wearing this in place of the O-ring for now.

Any way the Big News is that I am Cloning myself, using Alison's Belly!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes She is Pregnant!!!!!!!!!!!!! a sweet surprise to both of us, but "Luby's derby Squad" is beginning. My child an Speed Buggy's kid will Dual. I am already thinking about a custom trike built by me. But all I can say is I am freaked out, I want to be HIP and Groovy to the kid. But I have a good icon to look up too, my DAD ; he taught me how to do do burn outs in the garage and ride a wheelie.

now it's my Turn



Tuesday, February 06, 2007

I did it!!!!!!!!

Yep, I did it, the one thing that everyone's been waiting for...

I proposed to Alison....The Cool thing is I don't have a ring yet, so I improvised using an O-ring from a fork.

She still said Yes, so she's uber Rad in my book!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sunday Morning

Well it is finally starting to warm up here. I went for a ride this morning up to Lee hell Rd. Started a t Mav HQ, for 2 reasons, one being that my 1X1 was there, and Two we have an espresso Machine there...

After doing some Brake work on my bike, I headed out. I started on the bike path and made my way through city streets I have never been on before and then finally hit Lee hell. As I started my way up my legs started to burn, a lot earlier than last time. So I smiled and thought to myself "what would Henry Rollins do" we all know the answer, I kept going, I made it up to the point I wanted to, even though it was slow going and I wanted to Vomit, I was happy!
On the way down I snapped a photo, Got Passed by 2 roadies who looked at me Funny. Then at the bottom saw who I think was Nick Martin from trek and some other dude, any way they said"hi" going the opposite they're cool in my book.
B.I.L. How was your ride.....sounds like it's below Zero in MNPLS

Saturday, February 03, 2007


I have tig welded steel in the Past when I went to frame building skool a few years ago. Big Country Fired up the welder at mav HQ, and let me weld a little. Yeah I need more Practice, but after getting the OK to use the welder, I found out it was out of argon.......Damn this sucks.....

Big Country said that he has a welder in his Garage, and we can use that. So We cut a couple of small pieces of Aluminium and headed out. I welded Aluminium for the first time. It was amazing at how much cleaner it is to weld than steel. Then we broke out the Mig Welder, that was cool, but I think I might Concentrate on Tigging. Anyway the Following photo makes a good Sat. Night.

Good Ride

I finally got my ass back in the saddle, I went for a ride today, still quite a bit of snow out here, so I made it a road ride. I had my choice between a Surly Cross Check geared 42X17 or a fixed out 1X1 with a Maverick and 2.5 sticky tire in the front, running 32X17..... I took the 1X1, I had no odea where I was going but I was having fun, yes I got passed my a few guys on road bikes, but I didn't care. Anyway I found my self at Lee HELL rd. it was steep, I went up it halfway and then turned around.( I usually don't go all the way on the firt date)

Bad News!!!!!!

Another death....Biker + Car =Death
Got the News From CRC That a former Drummer of Social D was killed....while riding his bike an got hit by a car.....This sucks. Yes I have a huge place in my life that Social D has an impact on, but another biker/ Car fatality!! they all suck, no matter who the person is. Now for me, I have a bad taste in my mouth for drivers who run over bikers, but I also know that shit happens, and it is not always the drivers fault, but when it is the drivers fault...wether talking on cell phone (boulderite), or road rage (redneck), or drunk dumbass(St.Cloud Redneck, in blue blazer) ....FUCK YOU All I hope the worst for you!!!! I am a mellow, but sometimes violent person, but I prefer mono'E' Mono ...Not 4 dr sedan VS. Mono....anyway some venting has been done, just be safe out there( yep, Luby just said that)
