Lemolo Bags Portland

Comments

by Galen Maynard on Jun 02, 2008 at 10:47 PM

These bags are designed and fabricated in Portland to meet the needs of urban cyclists. Eli, a one man operation, has focused on spacious, practical, backpacks. He’s been providing city dwelling bikers an alternative to the standard messenger bag. When he’s not stitching, you might catch Eli about town on his fixed Kogswell Porteur.

Have you experimented with backpacks or other alternatives for lugging your daily haul? What works best for you?

First, I’ll officially retract my Trek Lime snark and Playah Hatin’. Second, I had no idea that anyone was modding Limes and after seeing Matt’s, I hope more cyclists do!

That’s one Pimp Grocery Getter.

Bike Boom

More reports of a gas-price-related bike boom from NYC

The owner of Dixon’s Bicycle Shop in Park Slope, Brooklyn, David Dixon, said that over Memorial Day weekend, his store sold all 25 of its Jamis hybrid bikes.

Last night the Seattle ABC affiliate, KOMO ran a story about busy bike shops in the Seattle area. This is just great news.

Also noted on Salon.com. Hat tip to our reader Scott.

2009 Dura Ace - Eye Candy

Comments

DA 2009

It looks mostly like an aesthetic upgrade to me. It’s still over 2000g for the group and there’s nothing really “new” about it if you ask me. I do like the cranks/chainring integrated look. Very sharp.

Gotta have it? Taking a pass?

Muy Borracho! Cargo Bike

Comments

Everyone knows you can’t travel with a cargo bike… Right?

This bakfiet’esque cargo bike made by David Wilson Industries, is not only significantly lighter than a dutch cargo bike, it has an S&S Coupler. This enables you to stuff it in a standard bike travel case. The owner of this bike has peddled Washington, Florida and many points in between. The best part? He’s never at a loss, for a place to stow his half rack of beer. Sounds like bike Nirvana to me.

Bike Magazines v. Bike Blogs

Comments

by Byron on Jun 01, 2008 at 8:31 AM

Fixedgear posted a photo of a tired Bicycling Mag cover and that started an impromptu conversation about bike magazines v. bike blogs

“the formula of trotting out the same tired articles over and over again.”

“Compare Bicycling to Cycling Plus or Cycle Sport (both UK products), and you realize how pathetic the grand dame of US cycling mags is.”

What do you think? Are blogs offering more value than mags? Has Cyclingnews ever wrote a critical review?

Seattle Green Lanes

Comments

Interestingly the green lanes look like astroturf – expect some street artists to set up lawn chairs, beach balls, and a picnic blanket. There’s a Critical Mass suggestion. Next one, go and occupy all the Green Lanes and just chill there.

Note: to Portland, "we got Green Lanes too!"

And I sorta feel like a Bear at the Zoo, where they drop new toys into an enclosure to reduce boredom. This Summer in Seattle, the City has added new wayfinding signage, green lanes, new bike lanes; it’s all very exciting!

Tulips are the new bike accessory

Comments

It’s spring in Seattle… Critical Mass’ers came out in full force to celebrate the return of long days, and favorable biking weather. The best way to confound an angry motorist stopped by a mob of cyclists? Hand them a Tulip.

Another Girlfriend’s Bike

Comments

A reader wrote to say he designed his girlfriend’s bike and sent photos

piabike1.jpg Nice. Mark’s shared his girlfriend’s bike earlier in the year. I like how the bunny horn matches the reflectors.
