BAMBOO DAVE

BAMBOO DAVE

Is It CARBON, ALUMINUM or METAL? by Efren Martinez Modesto View Readers lets just say if Mother Nature was racing in The Amgen Tour, she would be riding the same bike my friend Dave Nicolau sports every Sunday on our group rides. I met Dave last year at 5:30 Fun Sports Bike rides on Sundays […]

Get A New View

Get A New View

Get a new view!  At ModestoView we have been saying that since 1997.  It is good to notice the small things.  It is the frills around the edge, the hidden track on a CD, the extra fork at a restaurant and the corbel of a vintage building in Modesto?  What was that?
