Photo of the day: Paris Antler Bike

This photo works as the photo of the day on several levels:

  • it’s an antler bike, in Paris
  • the cyclist is wearing a beret with matching uniform that matches the spoke reflectors
  • the cyclist strikes a saucy pose
  • it says I’m French and fun!

Thanks to Pally for the tip and finding the Paris Antler Bike on the Paris Deconstructed blog.

From Japan (Part 1): Grunge Lives at Y’s Bike Shop in Akasaka!

In Akasaka neighborhood of Tokyo.

I am kinda clueless to what this logo signifies on this bike stem. It’s a reasonably nice stem, like a Ritchey but polished. If I spoke better Japanese, I would have asked for an “It’s Techno” stem, or maybe an “It’s Indie Rock” stem.

Wait a minute….there’s profit to made in these ideas.

Carbon Brake Pads!

Ok, the oft-asked, much debated, and a bit confusing question on brake pads came up for me this weekend at a hilly race when a set of Kool Stop carbons squealed like Lindsay Lohan at a Hollywood coke party.

I had run just regular Dura Ace pads on my Hed Stinger 50s with no problem, but understand with the heat and descents they’ll melt with disastrous results. So I switched to the Kool Stop and they were fine for the first hour, then the horrible squeal started.

So what do you do? Live with the squeal, use a different pad, what?
