New Seattle Landmark: Bicycles

new neon

At 3422 Harbor Ave SW, where CycleU and a couple cat ladies are housed sits this new neon sign announcing that bicycles are available.

They are in the new bike shop and in the ‘hood, cause that’s where the Beach Drive bike path starts under the W. Seattle Bridge, across the street from the Nucor Steel Plant.

As we rode by, the workers had just finished installing it and we’re wiping the dust off with rags. Haven’t driven across the bridge in a while, but expect you can see it from a car too.

Meet me at the bicycles sign. It’s a nice ride along the beach. Keep going past Lincoln park and up into the hills where you’ll find a 22% grade called the Col de Roy.

Bike Mount for Android


Finally a mount for Android

The Bike Mount for Android is in on test and functions just like the iPhone mount, but for the ‘droids. It’s shock and waterproof. Mounts to the bar and your phone will function like a bike computer with your favorite flavor of bike app. With the right liner, the mount works with

  • Samsung Galaxy SII
  • HTC Desire HD / HTC EVO 4G / HTC Inspire 4G
  • Samsung Galaxy S / LG Optimus 2X
  • HTC Sensation

This mount, like the iPhone version, are meant for the commute and casual ride. If you’re on rough or off road, get the HD mount to better secure it to your bike.

I use an iPhone exclusively on my bike now, including just riding, touring, and training. Using the Bike Brain app, Google, and Aperture 3, make photo ride maps like this.

The mount I’ve got is a factory sample and they’re not in the States yet. Expect the same pricing as the iPhone at $59.99 and available from us and Think Biologic.

Attn: Feed Readers UPDATE


Apologies again for sending you gigantic images in your feed reader. The issue is now resolved and if you’re still seeing the giant images or video, please refresh or clear the cache. The cache will update itself in the next few hours and after we start posting again. We hope our bug didn’t blow through too much of your data plan or bandwidth.

So what happened was, we rolled out RWD images – they adjust to the size of the mobile screen – and RSS choked on the code. After a day spent traversing the DOM to replace width/height attributes inline, we’ve solved it.

I’ve been writing about RWD and living through days like this on G+. Read more about it here.

Now we’ll resume our regular programing with a video that features a cranky old Brit bike builder who in the first few seconds says

When we were riding there were only 5 speeds and we only rode 4. Now they’ve got 21 speeds and you don’t know what gear you’re in.

Like hey back in the day, you got ONE image size. That’s it. No adaptive/responsive shit. We push the web tech here like we do on our bikes. Sometimes it breaks.

Attn: Feed Readers

We’re aware of the gigantic images in feeds issue and working on a fix. Sorry for blowing out your browser. You can see what we’re doing with those images on our mobile view and they’re regular sized on the desktop.
