Kent Petersen

Kent Petersen is that guy that rode the Great Divide trail on the Redline monocog singlespeed. He has a really good bike blog that I have been reading lately. You should too. In fact, I'm gonna add it to the links section over there.

I was hoping to find a photo of Kent and/or his bike to sum things up, but no luck. So imagine a photo of a guy on a crufty old bike that has been ridden thousands of miles, has lots of home-made parts on it like his legendary chloroplast fenders and rubbermaid panniers, and looks functional is the way that only things that you use constantly are. Not clean, not brand new, not shiny, but still somehow beautiful.

Update: JimG posted a comment with exactly the picture I was trying to describe. Behold.

Here's another interesting tidbit -- those red mini-panniers pictured on Kent's Monocog are actually modified *dog cargo packs*. ;)
