Favorite Tool: Hozan C-205

For tours, vacation, and racing, we travel with S&S-coupled bikes and this tool.


It’s a Hozan, C-205 lockring wrench that tightens and loosens the couplings. Well made, steady in the hand, and when used means we’ve either started or ended a trip.

Our road travel bikes are designed by Mark V and built by Bill Davidson. We’ve ridden them all over the Pacific Rim and the States.

Who Needs to Think when Your Feet just Go


Moments like this, when riding, are what it’s about. Not thinking about work, stress, or anything other than the next riser and turn in the road. We’re back in Seattle later this week. More posts on Kauai to follow, year end wrap ups, and what we’ve got going on in 11.

Best Santa Bikes

We’ve been publishing for 5 years now and have a collection of Santas riding bikes, including the most recent 3 Guys named Santa, Santa Races Cross for You, and El Diablo’s Santa Claus Bike. The best though is Scuba Santa doing a wheelie underwater with a shark!

Happy Holidays

We hope you’re enjoying the holidays and thank you for being part of what we do. We’ve got much more coming in 11.


After riding another few days of riding miles on Kauai.

Kauai: 5 Days of Hard Riding

After 5 days of hard, we rode easy yesterday around the North Shore on the World’s Greatest Bike Path

The Rides

I’ve uploaded the rides to Map My Tracks, a social sharing site that works with OutFront, a real-time, GPS tracking app for outdoor sports. The rides include

Note: GPX and KML files available with those links.

A Killer App with Mount

Combine OutFront with Biologic Bike Mount and you’ve got a killer, bike-blogging, riding. and training app. While the app was tracking our ride, I was recording videos and taking snapshots for Huggacast 142: Waimea Canyon.

I’ll get more into the app when we get back from vacation, but finally the 2nd-generation iOS apps have arrived in the App Store and bringing with them more sophistication and usability. OutFront is also available for other smartphones.

More Photos

Today we’re just riding around taking photos with the Nikon D7000. We’re sharing photos on Flickr, where you can geolocate our rides on their map.
