Freaky Friday with Cameras

Oh you know just shooting this weekend with a @canonusa #eos1dxmarkii. What you guys got going on?

After 3 years of sharing mirrorless cameras with you, and publishing a suite of sites for the Mirrorless Pro, Canon sent their flagship EOD 1DX Mark II to demo; with a note that said, “Here, try this.” And, it’s like a scene from Freaky Friday with a body switch (me and mirrorless in the role of Lindsay Lohan switching to Jamie Lee Curtis as the Canon). Everything is opposite, nothing is compact, and the image quality?

Well…

And, there’s more to come next week when I’m at PressCamp.

Pacific Blue Bike Chase


Power-sliding Spinergy RevX’s are awesome. So are chase scenes that includes trials moves. Also see this scene that’s less awesome, but has more power sliding.

Minty B-Type

Minty B-Type

Detroit Bike’s B-Type, a fav city bike of ours, is now available in mint with retro saddle and grips, white wall tires, and chrome fenders. Quite nice and read a post about the vanilla B-Type from earlier this year and what Patrick Brady had to say about them on Medium Bicycles and in our magazine. The models from Detroit are no more than $699.00, well equipped, and made with durable steel.

Perhaps you’ve heard of the collections of bikes at River City? Well, here’s part of it.

Motor Doping: Episode 2

Remember when “motor doping” was laughed off as impossible? No one is laughing now—part 2 of the French TV program report on motor doping includes claims that a UCI official colluded with an e-bike maker.

“Hi,” the message reads. “Do you have a phone number I can all [sic] you on straight away, I’m sitting with French police who believe an engineer ‘Hungarian’ is visiting TDF today to sell a bike and visit teams, could this be your guy???”

Indicating the seriousness of the allegations, the UCI has responded with a press statement

The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) has consulted experts from a wide variety of backgrounds – including university academics, mechanical, electronic and software engineers, and bike suppliers – in the process of developing an effective method of detecting technological fraud.

The person interviewed in the Stade 2 report was among those consulted by the UCI in order to fully understand the technologies available and hence how to detect cases of technological fraud.

The UCI has full confidence in its staff employed in this area. It will investigate whether emails sent in 2015 to an external consultant were passed on to a third party and used in a way that no-one intended.
