YiPsan in Red and White

I was quite pleased with the way our most recent YiPsan build. Steel tubes and components kept the weight down to 18.5lbs with custom frame, fork, post, and stem. Keep your eyes open for this beauty around Maryland and on the tri circuit. There is a 'ghost pearl panel' on the downtube that looks really good. If only I were a better photographer you could see it too :)

Bike Taxis in Downtown Frederick

Have you seen the cool bike taxis rolling around downtown Frederick lately? They are so cool. Geo and I took our first ride in one last week and it was fun! It is such a great idea to have these in the city. It was a beautiful, sunny day so we were able to enjoy the weather and get to the our restaurant in no time at all. The driver was really friendly. He said he has been busy pedaling people all over town. If you ever need to get somewhere downtown quick or if you just want to enjoy the evening air, consider hopping on one of these bike taxis. All you have to do is text your location to the number below and they will pick you up!

Here is the company info:
