It's on Its Way

Photo Found Here

Just got word from the good people at Yuba that my order is being processed, which I'm assuming means is ready to be shipped. I ordered the bike more than a month ago and had to wait because I ordered the stylish matte black variety. Most of my bikes are painted black (my current Mundo being the exception); I either purchased them that way or painted them myself. I suppose it's my somewhat sarcastic nod to Henry Ford and his famous quote about his original automobiles: "Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black". At any rate, I am very excited; I'll keep you posted...and hey, it's way cheaper than a sports car.

Incidentally, my current Mundo is still for sale. I've temporarily lowered the price to $600(u.s.). If you're within a 150 mile radius (240K) of where I live and are interested feel free to email or leave a post. Quite a bargain for a bike of this caliber.

Perhaps I missed it in a previous post...but what is different about the new bike?

A few things:

I own a v1 Mundo, I'm actually skipping a generation purchasing this one, a v3. The v2, I've read, is 5 pounds lighter than the v1, and the v3 is 10 pounds lighter than the weight is one thing. Another are somewhat better components. The frame is also disc-break ready, which I will most likely eventually install. There are also multiple braizons (sp?) located throughout the frame offering much personal customization. The in itself looks a little leaner and slicker than the v1 (trust me I have spent hours scrutinizing photos and reading reviews before making the purchase). At present still have not received it...saw that my credit card was finally build so hopefully it will be on it's way soon. Once I have it and ride it for a while I'll post a full review.

Wow...a net 15 lb difference is significant. I have never had a bicycle with disc brakes, but I can imagine that they would be a particular improvement when carrying heavy loads.

And flat black has to be one of the easiest to maintain colors.

I look forward to the review.

For about a month now I've been wondering what the hell these were hanging off the cucumber vines in my garden. When I googled orange cucumber I found that there are/were multitudes wondering the same thing. It also seems that most, like me, thought they were planting pickling cucumbers. As it turns out (from the best that I can tell) these are a somewhat new crossbred variety designed to be loaded with vitamins. To read short article about them at the website of the USDA click here. To see a photo of them compared to pickling cucumbers (what I thought I was planting) click here. They are interesting looking...and tasty, too...they have an almost acidic, lemony aftertaste to them...I s…

I eat a lot of bread; I always have. I eat bread virtually with every meal, and thus I feel that I am living proof that bread does not make a person fat. I find it odd that humans have been consuming bread in one form or another for something like 6 thousand years...and all of a sudden it is considered fattening. The problem, I think, is lifestyle and the quality of the bread you consume...I'll admit …

Ezekiel interpretation

I've posted recipes for this bread--or variations of it--in the past on numerous occasions, but the two most popular are here and here. Those two posts, in fact, draw the largest amount of visitors to this blog everyday (through search engines, I imagine). Yup, I can carry things on my bike until I'm blue in the face, and talk about quotes and all things spiritual...but the topic that gets the most hits are my recipes for Ezekiel Bread.

This post is a little different in that I made the bread at home (opposed to at work in a commercial kitchen), and I did not use any refined (white) flour; just whole wheat. And for that reason the recipe is slightly different than the others (a printable recipe follows the pictures). This one, I believe, is more true...refined flour was unknown in biblical times. But I'm getting ahead of myself. In this post I also wanted to offer some of my personal views on Ezekiel bread and its recipes in general (I know what you're…
