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.

Mobile Social Portland Video

Video from the Mobile Social Portland. We Zoobombed and partied at Lucky Labs. Ibex, Crumpler, Kona, Reynolds, Surly, SXSW all represented. The Mobile Socials are an intersection of bikes, technology, and culture. Mostly just a good urban cycling time.

Notes



2009 Dura Ace - Eye Candy

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

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

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?
