Tour 15: Trust the Data


by Byron on Jul 18, 2015 at 8:04 AM

What Alex said and it feels like we’re watching another sequel in a bad movie franchise, but you can trust that data at least, and Dimension is parsing it in ways we’ve haven’t seen before.

First Ride: Raleigh Roker


by Byron on Jul 17, 2015 at 10:48 AM

First ride impressions: it’s like a long Cross bike with big tires and from the first ride, feels more at home on the dirt than road. I’ll spend more time on all roads with the Roker, and write about it in an upcoming issue of our magazine.

Built: Make and Tell at DKCB


by Byron on Jul 15, 2015 at 10:06 AM


Due to a scheduling conflict, this event has been cancelled.

Built is a series of talks by people who create, and after a hiatus since SXSW, we’ve bringing the event back this Summer to DKCB in Fremont for Malts and Machinery.

Max Kullaway and Mark V will reveal their bike design and build process while Westland Distillery shares a tasting of their thoughtfully-made whiskey. We’ll have appetizers and craft beer during the evening too. If the mood is ride, maybe a song and dance…

Meet Mark V

Sannino: One Thing Led to Another


by Mark V on Jul 13, 2015 at 10:59 AM


Retro steel: because it’s funny to slip by riders on bikes that weigh less and have twice as many gears. But is friction shifting better than the latest 11sp systems on the market? No; it SUCKS.

Slipped on a 25-year old jersey and rode a 30-year old bike on a fine Sunday. No power meter, no Garmin…just my iPod shuffle. Coming back in from the Mercer loop, The Fixx came on, and one thing led to another.

Tour 15: Dangling Gold Chains


by Byron on Jul 12, 2015 at 8:48 AM

In this edition of the the Tour, we see dangling gold chains early, during the TTT. They usually come out in the mountains, when the racers are climbing.

After a long week and getting Issue 26 out, taking today off, and riding this afternoon. For more on the Tour, besides the jewelry, see these tech articles

The audio sample in the Vine, is from Kraftwerk’s Tour de France soundtracks.

Issue 26 Dedication


by Byron on Jul 10, 2015 at 8:39 PM


The struggle of a climb. A beautifully crafted bike. Going on a diet. The dedication required to bike to work, complete a century, or race.

On iTunes and the Web for $16.00 a year or $4.00 an issue. The free cover story is about a baby-blue cargo bike and the dedication it took to release it to market.

While the industry and fan focus is on the Tour, details are still getting worked out on bikes like this from Marin Gestalt and designed by Pfalzgraff, who also makes our magazine covers.

For our take on the Tour, as it happens, see this collection of tweets. Today while running an errand it was chaos with Stybar winning after a crash involving Tony Martin and Nibali. Such is the roulette wheel of a race and who’s got good luck that day. For a human interest story, Daniel Teklehaimanot made history being the first African to hold a jersey.

Tour 15 Stage 4: Tony Wins in Yellow


by Byron on Jul 07, 2015 at 10:08 AM


I have such complicated feels for this sport, but that was an impressive win…riding away from the pack. In his own words

I was so nervous. I don’t know how many watts I pulled. More than I ever did. Now I am so happy and a thousand thanks to my team. They supported me the whole week. Now I gave it back so I’m super happy.

And from David Millar

Also noteworthy from the stage, Runkels!.

Tour 15 Stage 3: Recap


by Byron on Jul 06, 2015 at 6:16 PM

Chris Froome finished second to take the yellow jersey as Joaquim Rodríguez won the stage while two serious crashes caused the race to be temporarily stopped. The Tour video shows a high-velocity crash that took out a Cancellara, as well as Simon Gerrans, Dmitrii Kozonchuk, Tom Dumoulin, and William Bonnet. That’s many great riders out or hurt due to something as mundane as a touched wheel, something that happens could happen at Saturday shop ride. Two broken backs, broken collarbones, broken shoulders, broken wrists. The crash happens at 0.13. So what caused it? High winds, speed, and a touch of wheels.

on Twitter, I’m curating a collection of tweets, as the race happens and on this page for our mobile users.
