Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

From our home to yours, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

A flashback from 2006 when Specialized produced this video Christmas card.

The music is Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, played entirely on bicycle parts as sampled by Flip Baber, a San Francisco-based composer.

Glockenspiel & Clarinet melody = spokes.
Cello & Violin pizzicatos = plucked derailleur cables.
Triangle = disc brake hit.
Percussion = shifting, coasting, finger over turning spokes, chain pulls, braking, clipping into pedals, back-spinning, air out of tires.


Yes, it really was this lovely today here in Georgia. What better way to celebrate the arrival of Christmas and for the first time since 1978, the beginning of Hanukkah on the same day. Best wishes to all for your holiday celebrations and many miles of smiles in the coming new year.


About TG

I've been around a bit and done a few things, have a couple kids and a few grandkids. I tend to be curmudgeonly, matter-of-fact and not predisposed to self-serving chit-chat. Thankfully, my wife's as nice as can be otherwise we'd have no friends. My interests are somewhat eclectic, but whose aren't?
