Just when I was looking for some light, Friday content, this Dirty Kanza 2015 video from Brooks popped. Not sure, I’d want to ride a Cambium C15 for 200K, but they sell it well.
iOS 9 brings many changes to Mac devices, including the Newsstand where our magazine was previously located. After the update, our mag app works the same with ad-free content and in-app recurring subscriptions. Subscribers can now move apps out of the Newsstand folder to their home screens and from there into whatever folder they like. After upgrading to iOS9, the previously undeletable, standalone Newsstand folder becomes a regular folder. In there you’ll find us and whatever other Newsstand apps you have subscribed to, like the NY Times.
As we talked about when the change to Newsstand was announced earlier this year during the WWDC, we welcome this change, along with our publisher 29th Street, who has made more Newsstand apps than anyone. The Newsstand created too much friction for readers and, as much as we believe in a mobile-app, content strategy in these ad-blocking times, we “should’ve never been buried in a weird little corner” on people’s devices.
Now you can get the content you want from us, as a Bike Hugger app, instead of a Newsstand one. Speaking of the content, our latest issue is about food, like this, and dropped last week.

The new SES 2.2 carbon tubeless clincher rim represents the latest evolution of ENVE Composites’ road hoops, not only completing the aerodynamic update of ENVE’s entire road rim line but also being their first tubeless road rim product. With the early summer debut of a tubular SES 2.2, the carbon clincher was not really unexpected, but I am excited to see that it is tubeless compatible.
SES carbon clinchers will be available in 20 and 24 hole
A who’s who of bike companies have jointly recalled quick releases after Trek did earlier this year. 13 companies comprising 17 brands make the recall rise to the level of a gate suffix, like #qrgate. Is your bike one of the millions recalled? Check this website and apply the #2 pencil test. Our take?
Tulio should rise from the grave and haunt bike designers like a Dickens ghost past and present.
Highlights from the Men’s race and the dramatic finish by Sagan. After what’s been described as an “odd” year for the bike biz, Sagan’s win is exactly what the sport needed. As Jason Gay said on Twitter and in his article
Watched Sagan's win again this AM. Wow. That move is almost every racer's fantasy: perfect jump, clean escape, ride like you stole it, win.— Jason Gay (@jasongay) September 28, 2015
and my favorite moment was the interaction with Boonen….
After dropping the mic on the finish line, Boonen gives him props. pic.twitter.com/yuF6sKssGf— byron@bikehugger (@bikehugger) September 27, 2015
