Tomorrow, I'll be taking two days and heading down with my brother to Portland, Oregon. On the hunt for the elusive generic brake hoods for my Campagnolo Nouvo Record levers and maybe a few other bike related items. Today, my old Cane Creek hoods just fell apart in my hands. And, what better timing. To further help me, I understand that the micro beers are pretty tasty. So I will sample the local brew(plus more) and hope to see some bike shops along the way. I shall return with stories from my great Northwest US adventure!
