Video from the Mobile Social Portland. We Zoobombed and partied at Lucky Labs. Ibex, Crumpler, Kona, Reynolds, Surly, SXSW all represented. The Mobile Socials are an intersection of bikes, technology, and culture. Mostly just a good urban cycling time.
Everyone knows you can’t travel with a cargo bike… Right?
This bakfiet’esque cargo bike made by David Wilson Industries, is not only significantly lighter than a dutch cargo bike, it has an S&S Coupler. This enables you to stuff it in a standard bike travel case. The owner of this bike has peddled Washington, Florida and many points in between. The best part? He’s never at a loss, for a place to stow his half rack of beer. Sounds like bike Nirvana to me.
Fixedgear posted a photo of a tired Bicycling Mag cover and that started an impromptu conversation about bike magazines v. bike blogs
“the formula of trotting out the same tired articles over and over again.”
“Compare Bicycling to Cycling Plus or Cycle Sport (both UK products), and you realize how pathetic the grand dame of US cycling mags is.”
What do you think? Are blogs offering more value than mags? Has Cyclingnews ever wrote a critical review?
