Saturday in the Park

Another bike-related photo from Nick DeWolf that says, “summer cycling” to us and the warmth we’ll recall as the cold reaches the Pacific Northwest.

Queue Once In A Lifetime by the Talking Heads cause it’s the “same as it ever was.” More photos from the Nick DeWolf Archive are now on Flickr, including these bicycles.

Basement Revolutions

One of the few hits of the Interbike trade show this year was LeMond’s new Revolution stationary trainer. Eschewing the typical roller-bar setup that requires a wheel to be clamped into a friction-based trainer, the Revolution has a cassette for bike mounting. The trainer comes in two versions, one with a ten-speed Shimano/SRAM compatible cassette ($549) and one without a cassette (for your own gearing selection) ($499).

The proud father of a newborn son (Henry, or as I like to call him BikeHenry) I’m not planning to get a lot of time out on the bike this winter. Sure, I’ve already got the bike setup for pulling his trailer come spring (when his neck is strong enough to support his bouncing head) but for the remainder of the year, I’m staying close to home.

LeMond sent us a test unit equipped with a Shimano equipped drivetrain and I slipped my Calfee Bamboo (with Di2–possibly forming the most expensive stationary trainer in the world0 onto the mount. There are only three bolts to tighten to assemble the trainer and anyone who can change a rear wheel will be able to get going in a few minutes.

As you can see, I’ve set up a high-end mounting station for my iPad as my training entertainment center. (I’m mostly streaming Netflix content–my god Alice in Wonderland was terrible. What happened?) Since those are scrap pieces of wood the total cost of assembly came out to something like $.05.

So how does it feel?
