iPhone Cross Training

Bike up on my shoulder, running, and that mount isn’t moving

Running up a trail with the Parlee CX H and a Think Biologic Reecharge bike mount. Glanced at it up on my shoulder and noticed the case was not moving. I’ve ridden for a couple weeks with this setup and it’s solid. The Reecharge has a rechargeable battery and for touring and longer miles after Cross Season, it’ll connect to the matching dynamo hub.

Think Biologic won’t recommend this, condone, or acknowledge off-road use and you’ll void your warranty, but it works. The giant wing nuts, snap-in and release mechanism are all oversized. You can see the nut next to the brake cable noodle.

Putting the iPhone in the mount gets it out of my jersey pocket. I carry it to stay in touch while out riding by myself and track my rides with the various flavors of iOS bike apps. A best seller for us in our Amazon store is the iPhone 4 Bike Mount.

I won’t race with this setup with this is not for MTBs. For training and riding on Road or Cross bikes, you get all-day battery life in a weatherproof case. Randonneurs? this is the device set up you’ve been looking for too, if anyone can pry those old maps out of your hands.

Here’s another photo of the mount, back at Hugga HQ.

Check all the captions for the photo on our Facebook page. Chris was originally rebelling against a New York law requiring a cyclist to keep both feet on the pedals. Helmet too.

Jungle Cross Run Under

Before Cross was dirt crits with barriers, in the Pacific Northwest, we raced and trained in the jungle like this. At a undisclosed location near Hugga HQ, I found a trail like it was, back then.

On Sunday, I’m at Silver Lake racing and looking for Suffer Faces. See you there, after last week, I hope have a better race. As I said on Twitter

Did that one for my culture. Felt empty, two mechanicals, in the pits. Better show next time. Thanks for the cheers.

Back from Oahu

For the second year, I flew to the Hawaiian island of Oahu to do the Honolulu Century with some friends. After months of grinding away at the bike shop, I had 6 days of sunshine to roll out almost 400miles. I did almost nothing other than eat, sleep, and ride. It was wonderful.

The last day in Oahu, I got up before dawn to ride out to Makapuu Lookout to try to catch the sunrise. I didn’t quite time the 45min ride from Waikiki right, so I just missed the daybreak, but it was just epic beauty all the same. There was some misting rain moving in from the water and I snapped a candid shot of a girl climbing up the lookout.

Then this crazy double rainbow appeared, hovering in mid-air above the water…it looked so surreal that it coulda been some inter dimensional portal.

A Sea of People Parted for Fred and Walter

That’s Fred and Walter starting their race from NYC to SFO in 1913. Fixed? Sure. Balloon tires too.
