Hugga Freerides

Our friends at Kona invited us to Whistler BC’s Kokanee Crankworx

The most ground-breaking gravity fueled mountain bike festival in the history of all things badass.

That means the Huggas are gonna put on some baggy shorts, full-face helmets, some crusty ‘tude, and blast down a hill on a freakin’ Freeride bike – hooah!

Ya know, slopestyle is new for us, but when in Rome. Shit I may even do some huckin’.

Kona will also have their asphalt and utility bikes onsite. I’m hoping to ride one of these to a store and back …

Camel Back Bottle

I’d like a bottle that didn’t harm me with nasty chemicals and one that let the water taste like water – too bad the Camel Back Bottle is bulky, doesn’t fit in the hand well, and I know I’m gonna drop it. The nipple action is very good though.

Dunstan’s Commute to Work

Dug how the video is a reverse perspective. When we shoot video, we’ve got the camera pointed in the opposite direction.

Tweed and Bikes

Just as we were talking about the dapperness in Portland, we spotted Dashing Tweeds in the UK

Not only stylish, but that cape is woven with high visibility Lumatwill. Commute in style and make sure you’re seen. Pair that cap with the Beret Helmet and a baguette in a basket. How could BSNYC refuse to wave hello when your rode by looking that good?

Instant Gratification

Bettini! A friend sent me a link to a riding-buddy’s pictures from the Giro - instant gratification. When I first started following cycling, you had to wait for Cycle Sport magazine to show up to see the first shots of the race. CyclingNews (then Bill’s CyclingNews with the teal background) usually had the results posted within a couple of days.

Now we get live, streaming video, photos as they happen, and detailed same-day coverage. Add to the standard media sources all the user-driven sites like Flickr, Blogspot, and Twitter and you are surrounded by our sport. Gotta love those interwebs.

Big thanks to the folks at Glacier Bikes for keeping me in their loop.
