One of these things is not like the other

Bike Hugger at the Apple Store, in the display window actually – that kit stands out in the crowd.

Commuting in Alaska, perspective for your winter commutes

Here’s a great post from Bicycle and Icicles, a commuter from Alaska. Like many winter commuters he gets (more than?) his fair share of “are you crazy?” comments when the weather turns bad. He’s got a couple of thoughts actually written down that I find myself thinking weekly:

Riding in the snow might look cold and miserable when seen through a windshield, but I’m one of the few people having fun while commuting at rush hour.

Good to remember, and pretty inspirational for this rain rider here in the temperate North West/Lower 48.

Cyclocross Exploration riders in the Times

The local cyclocross race season’s pretty much wrapped up, but that doesn’t mean you need to hang your cyclocross rig up for the year. Good story in the Seattle Times about off-road/on-road touring, written by Mike McQuaide who rides out of Bellingham.

LED lights at CES

LED%20lights.jpg I saw several vendors displaying long flexible strips of LED lights, as seen in the video I shot at CES. They all seem to run on 12V power sources, so they would be adaptable to bicycle use. One vendor had strips that changed colour in waves, but those required a controller about the size of a Twinkie.

If the system was already bike-ready, I’d be buying it for my girlfriend’s bike, just like the dekochari bikes in Japan. That would be so pimp, I can’t even describe it.
