We are a very small company so we end up wearing many, many hats round these parts. Part of what I do here at PDW is surf the internet to see what folks are up to. I guess I'm not looking for anything specific, just watching trends and keeping my finger on the pulse of many things bike related. I've got a pretty good list of sites I check frequently, and I would say that my mind is blown about once a week by something I see. Mainly I seek to be inspired. Working in the bike industry and having bikes be your main interest can sometimes get, uhhh... well it can just get you down a bit. (Imagine working for Baby Ruth and really liking Baby Ruth. It is like that but with less cavities).
But that is where my job is also awesome. It is my job to try to understand the role that bikes play in people's lives, and some days, like when I come across the picture below from the Slumworm blog, well see for yourself. I get pretty stoked! Those two dudes are killing it!
