CrossVegas and Pro Bike Express!


After the Tour ends and before football starts is when cyclists start talking about Cross and this year the season opener in Vegas is a UCI WorldCup. As per the usual, we’ll be there shooting CrossVegas, blogging, and I’ll pin a number on and race again in the Wheelers and Dealers race. I’ll also not worry about getting my bike there, setting it up, or sending it home because Pro Bike Express is taking care of all that. A few season ago, they took care of me during CX Worlds in Louisville. I wrote about my race here and the pros for Wired. While my bike is being tended to, I’ll focus on my race, and photos of the pros, like last year….

If you’re interested in having the Pro Bike experience, their services and pricing are explained on their site.

See you there.

A Collapsible Helmet

A Collapsible cup … uhm helmet is available now and props for passing CPSC standards, because the previous folding helmets did not; including the Pango I wore and traveled with from Dahon (now Biologic). If the designers can figure out how to vent it in the next rev, then it’s looks more viable. As anyone who travels with a bike knows, a helmet takes up lots of unusable space in a case. I don’t wear a helmet as a fashion statement, so not sure who they’re targeting as a user, and there seems to be as many crowdfunded helmets as bike lights…

The Closca Fuga costs $99.00 from Indiegogo and ships this fall.

High Desert, Flow Trails

A scene from Phil’s Trail in Bend. High desert, flow trails, and where we cleared our heads before heading back to Seattle. The singletrack complimented the road riding we did perfectly and Sun River resort is where that planned bike-path centric community, U.S. transportation advocates yearn for exits. For another look at riding in Central Oregon, see this tourism video.

Hirose Crafts a Fork End


Don’t know if craft builders compete for who has the strongest craft game, but if they did, Hirose would win. Read a story about Hirose in issue 24 of our magazine, and next week in Seattle learn from Mark V and Max how bikes get made while tasting whiskey.

Vacation Dad of the Year

Vacation Dad of the year riding the Sunriver bike paths. As we rolled up, he says, “Too many people watching the Republican debate and not out here riding.” Then sips his PBR, while his kids in the attached trailer are reading a book. His wife is just ahead laughing.

Last year in Sunriver, got lost on the extensive bike paths a few times, and shared my Mt. Bachelor playlist in Issue 15 of our magazine.
