Le Tour Recap Stage 7: We’ve Reached Peak Crash

Stage 7 Recap: Andrew Crashlansky and T.J. Van Crasheren can’t keep the rubber side down in Crash Town. A Facebook fan of ours did it a haiku version

CRASH! A rider goes down.
CRASH! Another rider goes down.
CRASH! Photo finish.



Issue 14 Another Adventure

Issue 14

Issue 14 cover

It’s summer time, the Tour is on, days are long, and we’re riding our bikes everywhere. Issue 14 just dropped on the Web and iTunes. The free cover story on the Web edition is about a ride I did with the GT Grade and the industry trend towards adventure and gravel.

The road scene is so broken, roadies are riding off road, that’s what gravel is about.

PressCamp 14: Niner BSB 9 RDO

Niner BSB 9 RDO

Mentioned yesterday that after the cobbles in the Tour, we’re thinking of Cross and another bike like the BSB 9 RDO from Niner. The story from them at PressCamp 14 is they’ve put on their big boy pants and are focused on quality, engineering, and design. With time cut short after the Summer snow storm, I didn’t get to ride this bike, but heard good things and it’s very well spec’d.

Also noted how clean the inside of their tubes are and their product engineer assured me, the BB junction and cable routing was just as tidy.

Le Tour Recap Stage 6: Sleepy, Crashy, then Greipel

Griepel wins

Greipel Stage 6

After yesterday’s awesome, anything short of cobble carnage would be boring. Stage 6 was sleepy, and crashy, until the sprint won by Greipel…



CX Can’t Get Here Soon Enough

Cdale CX

After the Boom Tour stage today, we’re thinking of CX! That’s a few weeks earlier than normal and bikes like this one from Cannondale are on our minds, as seen PressCamp in Deer Valley last month.

See the rest of the photos on G+ and our CX coverage will start in a few weeks.
