What are those wheels?

I’ve had a couple people ask me about, “those bike messenger rims”. They come in all sorts of colors, are rather deep sectioned, and tend to find their way onto the masses of fixed gear bikes rolling around downtown.
Velocity Deep Vs. I’ve never even owned a pair, but I’ve ridden them and there’s a reason they are on messenger bikes. They are solid, and dependable, and seemingly bombproof. For someone who earns their living with their equipment, you’d expect nothing less.

Another Xtracycle: RANS Dynamik style

wide.jpg Reader Sherry Katz wrote it to tell us about their Xtracycle built with a RANS Dynamik, a crank forward bike

“The advantage of the RANS is that the bike is designed so that the rider can put both feet on the ground while sitting on the seat. This makes the bike very easy to start and stop with when carrying a load. It also means the top tube is reasonably low and the bike is easy to step over.”

More photos here. Sherry uses her SUB to promote her business and has ridden all over town with it. As she says, “I call this bike my “truck” and find it very useful and lots of fun.”

Folding Bikes in Fashion

Dahon reported record sales, the ridiculously-small A-Bike launched, and I heard that during a recent catalog photoshoot the Fly By was the “shiznit.” (Photo Credit: “The Folding Bike Fairy ,” Frank Jackson)

100 yr old Water Bottle

“When I was a kid, I’d fill it up for my bicycle trip, soaking the canvas completely and letting it hang off the back of my bicycle seat springs with the built in belt hooks.”
