Functional Urban Cycling Fashion

I came across this photo on Flickr that illustrates a simple and creative way to give basic slacks some cycling utility.

This cyclist has stitched a highly reflective triangle of 3M inside both pant legs. When the legs are rolled up to avoid chain grease, the reflective patch is revealed. This is a great solution for urban cyclists and commuters that want to increase visibility without sporting cycling specific fashions off their bikes.

What about you? Do you have any practical tips for maintaining visibility?

Pressure Leak

Following our earlier post about Pressure – Cinelli & RVCA working together with artists on bikes – we acquired a photo of a frame with custom paint by artist Barry McGee.

Considering the design aesthetic, I could see this frame built up with either a retro gruppo or straight-up modern, fixed. How would you build up an art bike? Or would you just hang it on the wall?

As our readers know, we’ve designed our own Hugga bag with Crumpler and remarkably share similar tastes and palettes.

Social Media Essentials @ BizJam

A quick aside from the bikesphere blogging, to post on BizJam Seattle. Textura Design (publisher of Bike Hugger) worked with the event organizers to add a Social Media Essentials day. Good stuff and intended for those wondering what Social Media is.

What’s this thing called Twitter? Why are businesses even interested in Facebook? You want to start your own blog all about compact drivetrains? Dude, I don’t even know what RSS is!

2550152198_3cc8f5a1e0.jpg We’ll answer your questions and teach you how, Bro. And it’s notable that this is the event with the girls. The speaker line up includes more women than men. I think that’s a first at a tech-related conference.
