Crown Jewel Stolen

Just yesterday I was talking to Lindsay at Crumpler about his Independent Fabrication bike and today a sad email comes in about a stolen IF Crown Jewel. Any bike stolen is a loss, but it’s much worse when it’s a custom, a prized possession, and you’re a college student with no money.


If you see some crackhead or other thief riding this bike, let us know here and we’ll tip Meghan and send her Valentine’s day wishes.

BBQ @ SXSW Update

We’re gathering schwag for the BBQ, getting everything ready, and planning product giveways. New sponsors include Crumpler USA, Reynolds Cycling, REI Austin, and Sock Guy.

Considering the road ride, we may just race the Tunis-Roubaix X, ride the Spokes ‘n Spurs, or the Jesuit Ranger Roundup and focus on the Urban Ride.

We’ll update the rides and BBQ details, including the giveaways, here and on the BBQ page.

That Naked Bike

Reports are the Naked Bike is en route to a new bike shop in Austin. I’ve looked and couldn’t find anything about Naked online … the bike is also in this Huggacast video.

Monday Night Spinervals with Matthew McConaughey

Hearing that Lance was planning to open a bike shop in Austin, I was all, “nice.” I imagined Monday night spinervals with Matthew McConaughey could happen there and it’s pretty much guaranteed that the Lance Shop Saturday morning ride would drop all that showed up!


One of the most impressive shops I’ve visited is in Austin – well-lit, shiny floors, and lots of bikes. A shop on the list to visit in Shanghai is LaBici.

From the high end to the hippie, what’s your fav bike shop?


Mellow Johnny’s is announced and it’s commuter-focused.

Monkey See, Monkey Do

My girlfriend spotted this on Boingboing. It’s 1967 bicycle safety film called One Got FatĀ.

It has that weirdness that every Sixties-era public service film had and then some. You see, the kids who demonstrate every thing not to do on a bike are all wearing the freakiest monkey masks I have ever seen. It’s kinda effed up. I mean, I don’t like monkeys to begin with, and now they’re riding bikes on public streets. After watching this, I had this twisted dream involving Planet of the Apes and getting scolded by my elementary school principal.
