Schwag-bag Shades


by Byron on Mar 06, 2008 at 10:12 AM

Got these shades in an IE8 schwag bag and have adopted them temporarily as my “Vegas Look.” Got me thinking, what’s the coolest or in contrast stupidest schwag you’ve ever got? For me, Mavic has the best clothes giveaways in the business.


I gave Pam the schwag-bag shades after realizing that they were women’s – couldn’t argue with that – they have a little IE logo laser-etched on the lens.

Vegas Coffee Run


by Byron on Mar 05, 2008 at 3:11 PM

So I’m at Mix 08, went out for a quick ride, and found the Hottest Coffee in Vegas


A couple notes:

  • I forgot my helmet, back at home
  • Sexxpresso is an “only in Vegas” and probably better that it Stay in Vegas
  • Only a coinkadink that we’ve had back-to-back PG-13 posts

Bikesexuality (Sorta Not Safe for Work)


by Byron on Mar 05, 2008 at 12:08 PM

These cyclists do more than Hug their bikes … the Bike Porn site is sorta not safe for work and the Pornography of the Bicycle Tour is coming soon to a town near you (hide your daughters and your bikes!).

Skins Skins is a new product on the market that’s quietly making a name for itself. You don’t hear much about them in the press - but if you look close at a big race it’s uncanny to see how many top pros are putting them on right after the race. I just got my pair today and the 1 hour result?: Who knows if they increase my recovery, but they feel GREAT! Holy cow - I’d walk around wearing these compression tights 24/7 if it was socially acceptable.

Full review to follow.

Byron wrote about them earlier in Vegas and we’re giving away Skins at the SXSW BBQ.

Traffic Jams explained by Japanese Researchers, cured by Bikehugger


by Dave R. on Mar 04, 2008 at 9:48 PM

Cool video and explanation of why traffic jams occur on otherwise un-obstructed roads, courtesy of New Journal of Physics and the The Lede blog at the New York Times. Apparently the key factor is traffic density. As a multi-modal commuter I see (and participate) in these all the time. The funny thing is that this justifies the smug feeling you’re getting as you blow by the car-muters stuck in traffic – you’re not just going faster, you’re doing your part to reduce vehicle density and pointless traffic jams. Try not to lord it over the trapped-in-traffic though, they’re already frustrated enough.

bike_to_work_book.gif Chelsea Green Publishing sent us a nice little book about Biking to Work. It’s a quick read and perfect to hand to your co-workers or friends that ask about your commute, urban cycling, and how to do it.

Crumpler stands on its own


by Jason Swihart on Mar 04, 2008 at 6:51 PM

What I dig here is that the Crumpler doesn’t flop over when filled. Presumably, it’d sit there just like that all day. We’re giving away a bunch of Crumpler bags at the SXSW BBQ.

Bike Hugger @ Mix 08


by Byron on Mar 04, 2008 at 7:59 AM

mix08.gif Mix 08 is “an intimate opportunity for cutting-edge technical, creative and business strategists to engage Microsoft in a conversation about the future of the web.” Right on and Bike Hugger is attending this year. (I keep trying to avoid Vegas, but it sucks me back in!).

After Mix 08, it’s onto SXSW for the BBQ and Urban Ride.

Any Bike Hugger readers going to Mix?
