Microsoft’s Monster Garage

Maybe Microsoft will add HOV lanes, bike lanes, and showers for bike commuters to a hugongous parking garage that’s “four stories deep, four football fields long and 1.5 football fields wide, with room for nearly 5,000 cars.”

Getting press on this, I wondered if MS is proud of that monster garage. How do you possibly offset that much carbon?

Photo of the Day: Adventure Travel Bike

Built for a tour of Denali National park, this Adventure Travel Bike features S&S couplings, the biggest knobbies ever made, lots of room for fenders, campy shifters, and an XT drivetrain. Bonus is the retro paint. More photos in the Hugga photostream

Tripping the Bike Fantastic

Resurrected from the dregs of someone’s basement, is this early 90s Davidson Impulse – that’s just one of the frame models that gave Bill his frame-building cred and he’s been at it for 38 years. Bike trivia: “Davidson Impulse” can be re-arranged to “Damn Livid Spouse!” and Impulses are still trading today amongst collectors, on eBay, and that’s damn lucky to find one in a basement.

Check this Bicycling magazine review of Custom Bicycles for Specific Needs, written by Gary Fisher, in March 1978.

Sadiq Gill built the frame up with older Mavic SSC stuff, Phil Tubular wheels, and wrote that she “rides fantastic” … tripping the bike fantastic.

Cycle Fashion: Vital

It’s no Bike Hugger T, but I just picked up this Blue and Hot Pink shirt from Denver-based Vital and am loving it. The lightweight cotton Alternative Apparel t-shirt is comfy and runs fitted. Check out their assortment of other cycle-themed t-shirts.
