A Most Interesting 2009

We’re back from the Bahamas and before we ride into the New Year, let’s look back at the most interesting content we published in 2009.


Globe Bikes: brake

The brake setup on this Globe – done for a laugh – resulted in lots of discussion, traffic, a Bike Snob diss, and a Stupid Brake Mounts photoset.

My Favorite Bike Hugger Photos of the Year


In a year filled with some great Bike Hugger trips and stories, a few photos stand out to me as favorites. One is this unassuming photo of Specialized’s Amber, sitting astride her Globe. When I say her Globe I mean that quite literally, she designed every single weld, angle and custom part on every Globe bike. Here she’s clearly in love with her bike, which is the whole point, isn’t it?


From racing, this is one of my favorite shots of the year. By far it’s not the most technical shot of the year, but it really captures for me what ‘Cross is all about, the mix of seriousness and mockery that’s the heart of the sport.

If you’d like to see more of the BH photos, you can check out our flickr stream, or take a look at my collections of cycling shots.

Sand in our Sidis

IMG_7066.jpg We’re heading back to Seattle from the Bahamas today after some outstanding riding and vacationing. Once back, a full Bahamas download, year in review wrap up posts and then onto Twenty 10 planning.

We’ve gots lots going on and excited about next year with Mobile Socials in Amsterdam, Seattle Bike Expo, SXSW, and more.

Dedicated Bike Lane in New Zealand

Reader Fraser sent us this photoset of a dedicated bike lane in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand. That’s wine country.

Bahamas: Folding Cousins

Traveling with the Brompton and Dahon Mµ SL on this trip to the Bahamas, using Dahon’s Airporter cases.


Kept the weight under 50 pounds for each bike and didn’t get charged extra by the airlines. Before the trip, Dahon sent us the iPhone Mount and we’ll post on that soon.
