at the Belgian Waffle Ride Cedar City 2022

Santa Cruz Stigmata at the Belgian Waffle Ride Cedar City

 Who is

We had the fortune of catching up with TJ Eisenhart for a bit on Friday before the Belgian Waffle Ride in Cedar City, Utah. We'll have more of that conversation as we dive into Who IS TJ. Until then and in short, TJ is:
- a cyclist
- an artist 
- and an all around purveyor of positivity  
Also in possession of a new Santa Cruz Stigmata, laced out to his liking and that's what we'll be looking at today.

Stay Connected 

TJ's objective of this bike to have a 2 wheeled extension of himself. Ultimately he wants to simply enjoy riding and to make sure anyone in his charismatic orbit is doing the same.

And to get more of his art: 

We believe in getting lost, because sometimes we need to lose your way to find ourselves. We believe life is more rich around the corner, crossingover to where possibilities, opportunities and adventure await like treasure chests, new lovers and enlightenment. We believe in taking risks, straying, playing and escaping. We’re in love with everything that breaks the grip of caution on our getting up and leaving for a BIGGER day.

2023 Specialized Tarmac SL7



The Specialized Tarmac is for those who quite simply want one of the best road bikes available. An aero road bike built for speed yet comfortable enough to spend all day in the saddle, all in an extremely light package.    
We use the bike, in this instance more like a fine wine being paired with a insatiable cheese. Something like a semi soft Gruyère or Comté and a nice Pinot Noir. The Tarmac and (bias opinion) best cycling saddle bag are a winning combination.

The 1929 Tour de France stage 10

Has been referred to as the hardest stage ever. With a 40% failure rate, this very stage was a turning point in the events history. The setting to such tortuous self inflicted scourging would be non other than Frances Haute Pyrenees. Which after 1929 lovingly earned the title “the place dreams go to die.”   

Why does this matter?

The Haute Pyrenees would also be the setting for the Impossible Routes Season 2 Episode 2 "Tour de Gravel". Not only paying homage to the 1929 Tour de France but also increasing the punishment on an equal scale to modern equipment. 
Check out the episode below to see what we are talking about!
