Why yes it is. These pop-up yarn art things are pretty common here. I find them intriguing.
Attending the Minnecycle show today, I was afforded a great look at some local MN frame builders. Appleman seems to fill the bill well for a unique/boutique carbon frame.
They had this great looking complete track bike and an equally swell looking complete road bike. Check 'em out.
... in theory, but I can adjust and try again. This is a small size Blizzard from DQ. I thought I could get it home in the water bottle cage, not quite. I had to stop a couple times and drink the melt. Perhaps the best part was the DQ counter person who helped me pick out the Chocolate Xtreme mix, and to show me how blizzardy and extreme it is, handed it to me upsidedown. Not a drip...til the ride home.
(yes, the bike was rinsed immediately upon getting home)
