Presenting the Green Bike Project

Bike Hugger was there for the Green Bike Project debut. Participants meet at South Lake Union and rode to REI’s Flagship store for a press conference with dignitaries. We spotted the Green Bike a few months ago and “haven’t seen that much green in Seattle since Hempfest!”


The participants covet their bikes and we weren’t able to ride one, but it’s a Novara Transfer with a nice, updated spec.

Three Cruisers

I’d just jump on one of these cruisers and ride it. Bring it back of course, but they’re just waiting their on the kickstands, ready to ride.

Huggacast 51: Mark V talks economy effects with the bike industry

I talked to Jeremy Sycip, a custom builder, and Rod Jewett, president of Bianchi USA, about the effects of rising petrol prices and the shakey economy on the bike industry.

More Mobile

We periodically blog about mobility, mobile tech, and devices and attend Intel Developer Forums – our Mobile Socials are an intersection of bike culture, mobile apps, and technology. We’re not at IDF San Francisco, but it’s all over the tech blogs and we’re following along.

It looks like a device between my iPhone and Macbook Pro will hit the market soon and it’s like those shown in this photo from UMPC Portal. It’s not a Macbook Air, because our bloggers need the space and power when traveling. I’d sure like to slip a thin, light, powerful computer into my Crumpler bag, ride to a meeting or a coffee shop, and get to work. Can’t do that now, but we’re getting there. I do work on the iPhone – the iPhone has blown open the mobile app market – but not for editing video, photos, or audio.

Huggacast 49: Sneak Peak of Bianchi 2009

Last month I snuck into Bianchi USA HQ in Hayward, California. They have all of the new 2009 bikes tucked away in a room, but I didn’t have to drop in from a skylight to get to them. I saw some tasty items but I couldn’t ride them because A) No 49cm sizes and B) these are meant to be the show bikes for Interbike.

For 2009, the Mono-Q carbon road race bike compliments the more expensive T-Cube and SL (now called Superleggera) , the Gran Fondo-style 928 C2C carbon gets some sweet graphics, there’s a carbon CX bike, and strong offerings (particularly steel) below $2K for the everyman.
