I'm coming to hang out and chat bikes- that's pretty much my whole agenda. Eat, ride a little, eat some more.

NAHBS just didn't seem to do it for me, so for now I focus on other events.

You can only wear it if you approach Eric with a sharpie and ask him for his autograph

Oakland and the surrounding areas are good for that sort of thing. I've been up here for over 10 years and I still eat and drink coffee like a tourist.

Where the fuck was everyone else! I awkwardly met Eric and then went back to my dumb messbro circle.

man meeting people from the internet is weird.

way less awkward if we're all wearing lycra and riding bikes at the same time.

Apologies I couldn't make it, had class pretty late and had a ton of stuff going on.

In for eventual drinks; I feel like all the bay area tarckers I've met have moved in the last couple years (though I think I might've caught a glimpse of Heath at a Vince Staples show last year)

Thanks to everyone that came out!

If anything was awkward, definitely blame me. I spend so much time alone in the shop I get a little weird.

Also, sorry if the first few minutes with the microphone were off- I have no idea how to hold one of those.

Thanks again!
