Ol' Brændi, my olde friend

 Ol' Brændi (@brendanoshafer) is a classical renaissance MAN.  We grew up together in #nutmegcountry, and met when he was just a we 12 year olde trying to make an honest buck vacuuming floors at the famed Cycles of Madison, of where i (poppi) was employed as a hi-pressure Ibis (pre ugly carbon) salesman.  in the mid 90's, his father was the liaison in bringing the local, Richard Sachs, and Dario Pegoretti together in the first ever meeting.  Dario stayed at Brændi's house and eventually got kicked out after a week for not abiding by his mothers farcical rules of no smoking in the house, and for getting his father drunk too much.  you can't make this stuff up.  I've seen the pictures.

years later, i moved from the shoreline and attended college in Durango, CO.  I would come home for the holidays and summers to recount the wakkiness of the southern colorado 1-trakk.  ol' Brænt would wide-eyed listen to these tales of lettuce chopping brown pow, and get all jazzy.  a month after i had graduated and left, Brændi moved out their with nothing but one of his father's Steelman MTBs and a pillowcase full of Cliff bars.  And so his life began as a Durango legend...
