Photo of the Day: Adventure Travel Bike

Built for a tour of Denali National park, this Adventure Travel Bike features S&S couplings, the biggest knobbies ever made, lots of room for fenders, campy shifters, and an XT drivetrain. Bonus is the retro paint. More photos in the Hugga photostream

Tripping the Bike Fantastic

Resurrected from the dregs of someone’s basement, is this early 90s Davidson Impulse – that’s just one of the frame models that gave Bill his frame-building cred and he’s been at it for 38 years. Bike trivia: “Davidson Impulse” can be re-arranged to “Damn Livid Spouse!” and Impulses are still trading today amongst collectors, on eBay, and that’s damn lucky to find one in a basement.

Check this Bicycling magazine review of Custom Bicycles for Specific Needs, written by Gary Fisher, in March 1978.

Sadiq Gill built the frame up with older Mavic SSC stuff, Phil Tubular wheels, and wrote that she “rides fantastic” … tripping the bike fantastic.

Cycle Fashion: Vital

It’s no Bike Hugger T, but I just picked up this Blue and Hot Pink shirt from Denver-based Vital and am loving it. The lightweight cotton Alternative Apparel t-shirt is comfy and runs fitted. Check out their assortment of other cycle-themed t-shirts.

Interbike 2007 Registration Open

redrock_resort.jpg Bike Hugger is already planning our Interbike trip this year, where we’ll cover even more of the show, cycling in Vegas (you’d be surprised), and announce product from some supa-secret projects we’re working on.

Bonus this year is the Las Vegas World Criterium Championship with it’s Industry Cup division, the Red Rock Casino Resort Spa, and check this out: At the Red Rock, you can test ride Cannondale’s System Six or Synapse Carbon SL 1 with a set of Lew Racing’s PRO VT-1!

Where Interbike is usually criticized for being in Vegas, including by us, they’re working with the city and responding with more bike events, new bike paths, and encouraging visitors to ride.

Before Bike Hugger, way back, in 04, Pam and I rode Vegas and I had this to say

“You don’t know a town ‘till you ride through it. Vegas was a miserable ride of strip malls, side streets, heavy traffic, horrible tasting water and urban decay until we got out of the city and into Red Rock Canyon. “

The Hottest Stingray of them All

When writing the post on Coudal’s Swap Meat, I googled Orange Krate and from various forums, fan sites, and collectors arrived at this ad from 1968 posted to the Schwinn collector forums.

And it don’t stop there … check the Krate-designed rooms, the 32 Ford Sedan that inspired the Krate, and the chopper controversy about the Raleigh design on the back of an envelope.
