Wheel Therapy

There is something therapeutic about the rhythm of lacing and truing a wheel. Maybe it’s the beer.

Bakfiets with Theater Seating

Inclement weather doesn’t stop Seattle’s cargo bike crowd. Xtracycles, Big Dummies, Madsens and Bakfietsen are often present on these organized rides. So how does one stand out from the crowd? Here’s one way, haul a rider in a recliner, or better yet, make your own custom trike with a Bimini Top to shield you from the rain. Do you have a crazy custom cargo bike? if so this is the ride for you.

San Diego Custom Bike Show

With the success of NAHBS, regional custom bike shows seem to be popping up all over the place. We had a great time riding the Yahoo Purple Pedals Bike at Oregon Manifest in Portland. So far, this is the craziest/coolest thing I’ve seen pop up on Flickr from the San Diego Bike Show.

Urban Assault Ride Dates Announced

I had a blast at last years UAR when it came through Seattle. What’s the Urban Assault Ride you ask? Basically, two person teams race around the city on an organized bike scavenger hunt. You start the race with a manifest. You plan your own route, and at each check point there is a “Mini-Olympics” style challenge. Once your manifest is complete, you race back the start line, for a massive party hosted by New Belgium Brewing, (makers of Fat Tire Beer.) Last year the challenges included a paper boy toss, mini-keg stilt walk, Bike Joust, and a kid’s sized tricycle race. You don’t have to be in Seattle to participate since the UAR road show might be coming to a town near you. Check out the dates announced below, and learn more about the event after the jump, and if you sign up, tell’em bikehugger sent you!

Tucson: April 19

Sunday Coffee and Schwinn Cruiser

Spring is here, and people are dusting off their bikes and getting outside. I saw this sweet Schwinn this morning outside of Stumptown Coffee.

Mobile Social SXSW Photos

We’re kicking it at the Mellow Johnny’s after party, but we wanted to take moment to throw up a Flickr set of our favorite mobile social photos. Thanks to everyone who came out for the ride and the BBQ, and thanks to our sponsors who made it all possible. See more from the Mobile Social after the jump.

Smallest Don Walker Custom

We’re in Austin for SXSW and the Bike Hugger Mobile Social. I stopped by Mellow Johnny’s today, and ran across this smallest custom bike I’ve ever seen. Apparently this little Don Walker track bike is in the “Custom Bicycles” Coffee Table Book. It is a little stunner. Keep an eye out for more photos from Mellow Johnny’s and the Bike Hugger Mobile Social.

NAHBS Cargo Bike

It was just a matter of time before the longtail concept showed up in the custom bike market. This Blacksheep cargo bike is on exhibit this weekend at the North American Hand Built Bicycle Show in Indianapolis Indiana.

Custom Painted Big Dummy

Here at Bike Hugger, we’re constantly riding and blogging about Barney and Bettie the Bike Hugger Big Dummy’s. If you’ve been on the fence about getting your own Dummy, this might be your opportunity. From now through Friday at midnight Xtracycle is collecting entries for the grand finale of their Month of Love promotion. One lucky winner will have the opportunity to purchase a Big Dummy Frame and Xtracycle will have it powder coated in any color you can dream up! Check it out after the jump.
