Where's Brian

For those of you wondering, "where in the world is Brian now?"  I just finished another stint at the United Bicycle Institute in Ashland, Oregon.  UBI is the only nationally accredited bike mechanics school in the U.S.  I have 2 other certifications from UBI.  During this trip, I completed the Advanced Bike Mechanics Course.  Now I can add a DT Swiss Master Wheel Builder and a Suspension Technician certification to the wall.

Classes are kept small with lots of hands on and instructor/student interaction.  There is a lot of information and it can be stressful and rigorous at times.  But don't let me mislead you one bit.  I loved every minute!

Here are a couple pics of the world I've been living in.

  The wheels on the side of the bench were from my test, built to within 1/10 millimeter of variance.  That's not much more than a hair.  On to more riding...
