Novara 09 Fusion Video

Hugga visited REI HQ to preview the 09 Novaras with Steve Gluckman, Brand Manager. The 09 line is well-equipped, incremental, with lots of refinements; the introduction of a Buzz 29er, 700c Safari, and an Alfine bike featured in this video …

We’ll spend more time with Novara next month, riding their bikes in Boise, and blogging it all up.

Note that final bike specifications may change. We previewed factory samples and products are still being finalized.

Green Bike Project Spotted

The Green Bike Project is a collaboration between King County, Cascade, and REI to provide bikes to commuters that drive their cars less. Hugga spotted the project’s prototype frame during our visit to REI HQ.

From King County Commute Trip Reduction site:

REI, Cascade Bicycle Club and King County are partnering to bring 200 new award-winning commuter bikes (complete with helmets, locks and lights), bike safety training and more to 20 - 30 CTR-affected worksites. The aim of the project is to reduce drive alone commute trips and to create bicycle commute cultures. Stay tuned for more information.

STP: Silly Tyvek Pullover

Don’t get me wrong, I love STP. But the Tyvek jacket, not so much. I’m in the minority, it seems, as several thousand STPers will ride out of Husky Stadium at the crack of dawn tomorrow, many of them proudly wearing their new paper coats as they take off for Portland.

The Tyvek jacket serves a purpose, sure. It’s lightweight, breaks the wind, keeps in some heat, and squishes up small enough to tuck into a cycling jersey. But they also crackle like paper if you’re riding faster than 12 mph and are not remotely flattering on any body type. Frankly, I can’t stand them.

A note to the powers-that-be at Cascade - I’d rather be able to opt-out of the paper coat at the time of registration and see my money be put to better use as a donation to the education foundation.
