We’re expanding our Interbike presence and coverage this year with the Hugga Hookup, during the Criterum Championship. At the hookup we’ll have products, industry, racing coverage, blogging, and podcasting. The hookup is about creating community during Interbike, talking about what we do, hanging out, and watching the bike race.
Markus StÃ¶ckl finished out the last day of summer riding his mountain bike down a… mountain. Unsurprising I suppose, except for the following: Top speed of 130mph or 210 km/h. On Snow. This breaks an 8 year old world record. Several of the articles mentioned he was forced to hold his breath during the descent. Personally, I’d be much more worried about my bowels. Clench inducing movie is here.
I think it’s the combination of the swooping frame, graphics, and little wheels that gets the attention – for me it was the Nexus 8-speed shifting and the ability to actually climb hills on it. Shot the photo with my iPhone.
Sure we’ve got heart rate monitors, trip and speed computers, power meters, GPS, but I’m thinking an iPod bike or ultra-mobile PC that I can pop into a basket on my urban bike, like the BenQ.
There’s a Nike+iPod, why not a bike?
