Bamboo Bicycle Club

The Bamboo Bicycle Club is partnership between James and Ian, two bike-riding engineers who aim to create a knowledge sharing community for building robust and safe bamboo bicycle frames.

Lance Armstrong Can Change A Tube!


Outside Magazine just put up this pretty funny video of Lance Armstrong instructing you on how to change a tube, self-deprecating remarks included. I still feel dirty looking at him and laughing at his jokes, but it’s worth the couple of minutes out of your work day.
