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.

Interbike 2007 Registration Open

redrock_resort.jpg Bike Hugger is already planning our Interbike trip this year, where we’ll cover even more of the show, cycling in Vegas (you’d be surprised), and announce product from some supa-secret projects we’re working on.

Bonus this year is the Las Vegas World Criterium Championship with it’s Industry Cup division, the Red Rock Casino Resort Spa, and check this out: At the Red Rock, you can test ride Cannondale’s System Six or Synapse Carbon SL 1 with a set of Lew Racing’s PRO VT-1!

The Hottest Stingray of them All

When writing the post on Coudal’s Swap Meat, I googled Orange Krate and from various forums, fan sites, and collectors arrived at this ad from 1968 posted to the Schwinn collector forums.

And it don’t stop there … check the Krate-designed rooms, the 32 Ford Sedan that inspired the Krate, and the chopper controversy about the Raleigh design on the back of an envelope.

Sweet Swap Meat

Cross-posted from Textura Design … for all you DIYs out there in the big ‘ol blogopshere, check Swap Meat, where you send Coudal (a creative agency) the cool thing you’ve made and get a cool thing in return, like a book about a guy that wore red pants for 30 days straight, a lovely Box of Documents, or this Cat on a Bike print (since sold out).
