Cyclocross

We're so into Cyclocross that we made this special page for it. Also publish a Tumblr about Suffer Faces.

Logan’s Dangling Gold Chains look Belgian

Totally Pro Logan Owen Won Today

The gold makes you go faster

I showed up for the Seattle Cyclocross race at Marymoor just after Logan Owen won the Elite mens race. Logan is signed with Redline through the 2013 Worlds and has one more year as a junior. As a Neo Pro, Bro’s got the dangling gold chains, looking Belgian, and fast. Herw he is talking with me on video. Note a Seattle Squall started right as I turned the camera on. Sorry about the wind noise.


Also seen in the video is Kari, another Redline Pro, with their new carbon bike and a look at the “absolutely no shudder” fork.

Massive, over-sized fork

Also watch for A-Class’ new carbon wheels in the video.

Green Shadow

It’s that time of year when the sun sets fast and you may catch a bike shadow in the trees like this.

Then the rains come. I think I’ve written about riding in the rain as much as Tom Robbins describes it in his books.

“It was autumn, the springtime of death. Rain spattered the rotting leaves, and a wild wind wailed.”

I was riding the Parlee CX H in Lincoln Park when I took the photo. For this Fall, I’ve got the Modal in fixed mode with race blades and a Hugga Buddy Flap, of course.

Paris Next Week

I arrive in Paris next week, about this time, and expect to see more cyclists like this cellist spotted last month. I’m there to speak to ACTE during their international conference and ride bikes, of course. Before that trip though, it’s more Cyclocross here in Seattle. Also, got to check on Joey and make sure he’s ok.

Joey’s OK! Stickers and Tees

As the Joey’s OK! video gets over 300K hits, stickers are showing up at races, and tees are being made. We’ll take pre-orders soon on the tees and have our version of stickers. We’ll give the stickers away, including the artwork, and encourage you to remix #Joeysok maybe like this

JOEY’S OK OBAMACON

Yo! Dawg! Joey

Barrier Sticker

The barrier sticker was spotted by Raleigh’s Sally in the Pioneer S&M tent at the USGP.

If you’re racing this weekend, remember The New Hotness is “flying over the barriers,” like Joey, cause #joeysok.


Grifo Stretching on a Cole Wheel

Challenge Grifo on a demo set of Cole wheels

This corner of Hugga HQ has become the “Zen Stretch Area” with a Buddha statue observing. I like the calmness before all hell breaks loose on those wheels at the next race. We’re getting ready for the rains and mud in Seattle.

Power through the Mud

You stretch a tubular (a tire with a tube inside of it) to ensure a good glueing on the rim. Tubulars permit low pressures, like 28 psi and are less prone to flatting. They also have cool Euro names like “grifo.” The Coles with the Grifos are going on the Parlee CX H. When you get just a bit more serious about Cross racing, you’ll have a quiver of wheels for different conditions and spares.

See all the wheels and bikes in the pits at the USGP in Portland last year.
