These guys so get it. Bikes are fun, spread the word. Check out this video with Tyrone Stevenson Jr, founder of the Oakland Scraper Bikes crew inspiring kids to spend their time wrenching and riding.
How aerodynamic is a beard? Specialized engineers use their wind tunnel to find the answer we’ve all been waiting for.
Nothing more than beautifully shot eye candy ride porn…and that’s ok with me. The dudes from Hardbrakers cruising around the streets of Hamburg.
Hey, sometimes you can’t even GIVE away your old bicycle parts, so why not repurpose them into musical instruments? This dude will show you how.
Disclosure: I pre-ordered one of these FLUX packs through their initial Kickstarter campaign and have been anticipating it’s release for almost 1 year and a half now. Torch recently let backers know that after the release of the T1 helmet, the FLUX pack is almost ready to follow, but first they are pushing forward with a stretch campaign to grow their line of products. The pack will still be available to initial backers first, but you can also get a first production release through helping fund this stretch campaign as well. I’m really looking forward to putting this bag through it’s paces and reporting back with a review.
We’re getting one of these in for review soon, but until then check out the Pixel on video.
Cross Season is coming, but velodrome racing is still in full swing. Catch some of the action going down at the Encino Velodrome during the Ride The Black Line summer series every other Wednesday night through September 3rd.
Fixed freestyle — not dead, still fun to watch.
Wow…this happened. A typical angry, tailgating driver gets pulled over BEFORE they hit a cyclist…and gets ticketed! The cop is even heard to say, “Just letting you know I care.” Well, man, can we get this guy to travel the country advising other cops on how to take preventative measures and protect the most vulnerable of travelers?
I was asked to fundraise for and ride at this year’s Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Tahoe ride, but had to decline for various reasons. Riding for and with the L & L Society was a great experience and I plan to do it again, but this video of the Tahoe ride convinces me that I’m going to focus on this event next time. I hear this is the best, and most challenging, ride to participate in and now I believe it. Also, the ride experience is one thing, but the satisfaction of, and people you meet through, fundraising is genuinely the most rewarding part of it all.
