Hugga Freerides

Comments

Our friends at Kona invited us to Whistler BC’s Kokanee Crankworx

The most ground-breaking gravity fueled mountain bike festival in the history of all things badass.

That means the Huggas are gonna put on some baggy shorts, full-face helmets, some crusty ‘tude, and blast down a hill on a freakin’ Freeride bike – hooah!

Ya know, slopestyle is new for us, but when in Rome. Shit I may even do some huckin’.

Kona will also have their asphalt and utility bikes onsite. I’m hoping to ride one of these to a store and back …

Camel Back Bottle

Comments

I’d like a bottle that didn’t harm me with nasty chemicals and one that let the water taste like water – too bad the Camel Back Bottle is bulky, doesn’t fit in the hand well, and I know I’m gonna drop it. The nipple action is very good though.

Dug how the video is a reverse perspective. When we shoot video, we’ve got the camera pointed in the opposite direction.

Tweed and Bikes

Just as we were talking about the dapperness in Portland, we spotted Dashing Tweeds in the UK

Not only stylish, but that cape is woven with high visibility Lumatwill. Commute in style and make sure you’re seen. Pair that cap with the Beret Helmet and a baguette in a basket. How could BSNYC refuse to wave hello when your rode by looking that good?

Instant Gratification

Comments

by Andrew Martin on May 29, 2008 at 6:34 AM

Bettini! A friend sent me a link to a riding-buddy’s pictures from the Giro - instant gratification. When I first started following cycling, you had to wait for Cycle Sport magazine to show up to see the first shots of the race. CyclingNews (then Bill’s CyclingNews with the teal background) usually had the results posted within a couple of days.

Now we get live, streaming video, photos as they happen, and detailed same-day coverage. Add to the standard media sources all the user-driven sites like Flickr, Blogspot, and Twitter and you are surrounded by our sport. Gotta love those interwebs.

Big thanks to the folks at Glacier Bikes for keeping me in their loop.

How to Hypnotize Cyclists

Comments

by Byron on May 28, 2008 at 10:07 PM

We’ve got a set of Monkey Electric lights going on Bettie 2.0. It’s likely you could induce a shared trance state at a party with these lights and we may do just that during the Bizjam Seattle Party. Get them wheels a spinning, round and round with some House music and that’s a whole new hypnotic use for Bettie. Or flip them on during a commuter challenge as a defensive measure!

A Four for Two Deal

Comments

During the Tour de Fat, New Belgium is offering to swap cars for bikes. Four wheels for two:

Through the program, one volunteer in each Tour de Fat stop will commit to live car-free for one full year. The dedicated individual will sign over their car title and receive a custom New Belgium commuter bike in exchange. The selected candidate will chronicle the trials and triumphs along their car-free journey. The volunteer is chosen after submitting a video or essay describing their desire to live without a vehicle.

Obama Spoke Cards

We don’t get into politics here, but as a bike culture item, the Obama Spoke Cards are making a statement. For equal spoke time, someone should offer Hillary Spoke Cards … .
