Swiftwick One Ole

Swiftwick One Ole

I’m a fan of good socks. My wife likes nice shoes - I like nice socks. The guys over at Swiftwick sent the Hugger a pair of their Ole One sock to try out. “The best sock you’ll ever wear” - not sure on that statement, but they are darn fine.

Freeman Transport

A reader tipped us to Freeman Transport, hand-built, steel S&S frames:

We are hand-building bikes here in Missoula, Montana. All steel with S and S couplings. The frames break in half and fit into a bag. They can be checked on airplanes with no extra charge. One simple tool to put them back together. Ride to and from the airport. We designed these bikes for leaving the mountains to get some culture and hang with our friends in the city. Right now we are only making fixed gears. No brakes, No cables, No mess. Bikes come with a bag for travel. We’ll also make some product.

Freeman Transport is working in a niche and using blogs and social media to market to it. Very nice.

Bianchi Titanium: S9 Matta


The latest addition to my stable is a 2008 Bianchi S9 Matta. This is a butted titanium frame, a direct descendant of the legendary Ti-Megatube of the 1990s. Bianchi titanium bikes have won Paris-Roubaix, Milano-San Remo, and stages of the Grand Tours ridden by riders such as Riis, Berzin, Musseuw, Backstedt, and Cipollini.

I’m pleased with the ride.

You’ve got the look

In my cycling career, I’ve sported at least two of these looks … that would make a good Warhol-influenced print. For more Brent Humphreys photos, check his site, navigate the Flash to Projects > Le Tour.
