Bike Hugger YouTube Channel

In our ongoing campaign to bring you even more hugganess, we just started a Bike Hugger YouTube Channel. We’ve uploaded our most- viewed videos first and are now uploading our 33 (to date) Huggacasts . We’ll still publish to iTunes for the iPhones and iPods, this is just another channel. We’ll also feature more bike-related videos from YouTube like these



The Pillows from Japan

Wednesday night I saw my favourite band from Japan: The Pillows. They have this odd animated video featuring a bicycle; the song was on a single released in January. Besides performing at SxSW, they are finishing up the Delicious Bump Tour with female rock-trio noodles from Yokohama. It was also the last set for local act The Stereo Future. It was a great show, but I feel a little lame that we didn’t ride to there. But it was raining…and we had a lot of sake.

Today is Your Lucky Day

“In my experience there’s no such thing as luck.” - Obi-Wan Kenobi

I remember old Ben’s advice well, but I also remember how he caught the wrong end of a light sabre the next day. Lady Luck is a fickle bitch. Take today for instance. I finally get a chance to ride my new frame, but I figure that I should evaluate how the new bike feels on a set of wheels that I know well. Besides, it was windy, so those super-tall rims of my new Mavic Cosmics wouldn’t be a wise choice, would they?

Oh, I would be regretting that decision.

RideCivil 3/21: T-2 days and counting

Quick reminder: RideCivil is coming up this Friday, 5:30 PM at Westlake Center. Now’s your chance to participate in a ride focusing on positive interactions between pedestrians, motorists and cyclists in Seattle. Should be a great first Spring ride, I’m planning on bringing along some tunes. If you’ve got suggestions for the playlist please post a note in the comments section.

Site Weirdness

Sorta like when your shifting starts banging around, then stops, then maybe again, and definitely not when you pop into a bike shop for a wrench to check it … there’s some periodic funk going down on our site. On the backend, we’re working on adding 33% more hugganess, so no worries, it’ll all work itself out. Like this one time, I was traveling and my front wheel arrived tweaked and rubbing the brake. I was like, “oh well, ” and just rode it. Back home, I unpacked the wheel, and it was true again! I dubbed that wheel the “self-truing” wheel and have cherished it ever since.
