Paris Next Week

paris

I arrive in Paris next week, about this time, and expect to see more cyclists like this cellist spotted last month. I’m there to speak to ACTE during their international conference and ride bikes, of course. Before that trip though, it’s more Cyclocross here in Seattle. Also, got to check on Joey and make sure he’s ok.

Joey’s OK! Stickers and Tees

As the Joey’s OK! video gets over 300K hits, stickers are showing up at races, and tees are being made. We’ll take pre-orders soon on the tees and have our version of stickers. We’ll give the stickers away, including the artwork, and encourage you to remix #Joeysok maybe like this

JOEY’S OK OBAMACON

Yo! Dawg! Joey

Barrier Sticker

The barrier sticker was spotted by Raleigh’s Sally in the Pioneer S&M tent at the USGP.

If you’re racing this weekend, remember The New Hotness is “flying over the barriers,” like Joey, cause #joeysok.

The Anchor is the Prince of Excess in fixed. Worth clicking through this Mobius photoset to see how excessive it is.

This corner of Hugga HQ has become the “Zen Stretch Area” with a Buddha statue observing. I like the calmness before all hell breaks loose on those wheels at the next race. We’re getting ready for the rains and mud in Seattle.

Power through the Mud

You stretch a tubular (a tire with a tube inside of it) to ensure a good glueing on the rim. Tubulars permit low pressures, like 28 psi and are less prone to flatting. They also have cool Euro names like “grifo.” The Coles with the Grifos are going on the Parlee CX H. When you get just a bit more serious about Cross racing, you’ll have a quiver of wheels for different conditions and spares.

See all the wheels and bikes in the pits at the USGP in Portland last year.


Parlee CX H

Parlee CX H (for Hugga) just arrived and I’m racing it this weekend. Posts and photos to follow with a few notes now

and custom decals.

Nice makes it look Skunk works like

I’ll race this bike like I was driving a rental car on a no-sleep-till-Brooklyn road trip and all for 73rd place. Molly Cameron is racing Parlee too, but way faster then me.
