the bike fest

I sold a bunch of leg straps. Some guy even bought 4 of them!
Who knew SF riders wanted to be so safe?!

The corsets were popular among the lookers (although one got laced up on a
bike heading from Canada to Mexico, and then overseas to London!), less so
among the buyers...

...and I had to use this little graphic to explain them.

Still have too many jerseys. If anyone wants a jersey, they are $25 + shipping.

I got all my stuff tied to my trusty mule in one trip. what a day!


Sewed leg straps 'til I ran right out of tags!

More straps coming, and stay tuned for some tool pouch prototypes!

gluten free bread!

It was great! Elasticky and sliceable, with a legitimate crust and everything!

Flours (from most to least):
-brown rice
-tapioca starch
-potato starch
-sweet white rice

1-2 t xanthan gum
toasted caraway seeds

rice milk

Go through the process of making normal bread: proof your yeast in
warm water and honey, mix your flours with salt and xanthan gum
and caraway seeds. when the yeast is foamy, add 1 beaten egg and some
rice milk, and pour into the flour mix. stir until doughy, adjust flour and
liquid ratio until the mix resembles bread dough.

You don't need to knead the dough because there is no gluten.

Let it sit, covered and oiled, in a warm place for at least an hour.

Bake at 375 for 35 minutes or so, and enjoy!

According to Jesse, the bread kept, covered in the fridge, for about 5 days.
