Minty B-Type

Minty B-Type

Detroit Bike’s B-Type, a fav city bike of ours, is now available in mint with retro saddle and grips, white wall tires, and chrome fenders. Quite nice and read a post about the vanilla B-Type from earlier this year and what Patrick Brady had to say about them on Medium Bicycles and in our magazine. The models from Detroit are no more than $699.00, well equipped, and made with durable steel.

Motor Doping: Episode 2

Remember when “motor doping” was laughed off as impossible? No one is laughing now—part 2 of the French TV program report on motor doping includes claims that a UCI official colluded with an e-bike maker.

“Hi,” the message reads. “Do you have a phone number I can all [sic] you on straight away, I’m sitting with French police who believe an engineer ‘Hungarian’ is visiting TDF today to sell a bike and visit teams, could this be your guy???”

Indicating the seriousness of the allegations, the UCI has responded with a press statement

The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) has consulted experts from a wide variety of backgrounds – including university academics, mechanical, electronic and software engineers, and bike suppliers – in the process of developing an effective method of detecting technological fraud.

The person interviewed in the Stade 2 report was among those consulted by the UCI in order to fully understand the technologies available and hence how to detect cases of technological fraud.

The UCI has full confidence in its staff employed in this area. It will investigate whether emails sent in 2015 to an external consultant were passed on to a third party and used in a way that no-one intended.

The Trappist Breweries of the Ardennes

The Trappist Breweries of the Ardennes is the latest Rapha film.

For cyclists, the Ardennes is a place more commonly associated with bergs than beers, drawing fans and pros alike to its famous roads each year for three of the sport’s classic races. But for four Rapha riders, it was the idea of connecting three monastic breweries using these historic race routes that drew them to Belgium.

Earlier this year, I reviewed the Classic Jersey on Medium Bicycles and in our magazine.

How The Mountain Bike Evolved


From our friends at Wired, The Roots of Dirt | How The Mountain Bike Evolved

In the 1970’s a group of California hippies built a new technology that changed the world. Computers? Nope. They were building the earliest commercial mountain bikes. Off-road bike pioneers Joe Breeze and Charlie Kelly explain how their “goofy hobby” turned into a global phenomenon and Olympic sport.

That deserves a GIF and the saying then applies even more now, “riding away from the cops, the cars, and the concrete.”
