Trek Soho S Japan Spotted

This version of Trek’s urban bike is for the Japanese market. Note the dropbar, flip-flop hub, wide pedals. Lots of discussion on Flickr when I posted this earlier today.

Why do you hate me, Valentino?

Dear Valentino Campagnolo,

I know it’s been a while since I loved you, when I had all Campagnolo on my bike, but why do you hate me now? I’ve heard ugly rumours that you’re planning on introducing 11 speed cassettes and shifters for 2009!

Bike Wins Commuter Challenge!

From StreetFilms, check the video of their Commuter Challenge that pitted cyclists, driver, and bus/subway rider against each other. No surprise who won …

Dig the Plain Clothes Cyclists and dude with his cuff rolled up and loafers. Nice to see cyclists and drivers all getting along.

Note: if you squint and look in the background, that’s BSNYC strolling by for a cameo.

Electric Mopeds

Check this hand-built beauty from Sound Speed Scooters. It still has pedals for when the juice runs low. It’s almost painted and ready for a hugga test ride. I like the retro look of it, like one of those Honda Trails.

NYTimes: Georgetown

A frequent topic on Bike Hugger and in our photostream is Georgetown and I just noticed it’s in the NYTimes!

Before being annexed by Seattle in 1910, Georgetown was a wide-open saloon town with its own horse racing track, leading a local preacher to dub it œthe cesspool of Seattle. Built up by workers at Boeing and the Rainier Brewing Company, the neighborhood, just south of downtown, faltered in the postwar era. Interstate 5 drove a concrete and rebar stake through its heart.

As I described it, Adobe killed Fremont and it was reborn in Georgetown. The article doesn’t mention the bike piles, tall bikes, scooter shop, artist lofts, or biker clubhouses you find in Georgetown as well.
