A Shed full of Z(eds)! And Sno Pros, EXTs, El Tigres, Puma Mods, King Kats, etc...

Yep, I've got Zed-Shed-in-the-head.

I'm hoping to visit the ZedShed sometime in the coming months. I'll bring the camera!

Sometimes the 20-in. Handlebar Riser Betrays You

12/8/2011 9:26:00 AM

Hating the tall handlebar riser

Why does this guy look so dour?

He's also soaking wet, and his wallet smells like carp.

But worst of all: He was betrayed by his 10-plus-10-equals-20-inch-Handlebar-Riser.
