Love the Hugga

This came in from our contact form

Yesterday I met some wonderful individuals who really made my day. I was out for a bike ride with my girlfriend and I ended up popping a tire at the north end of Mercer Island. I was about to call my husband to pick me up when members of the Bike Hugger team kindly stopped and helped me out. Not only did they patch and pump my tire for me, they took the time to teach me how to do it in case it happens again in the future. It was so nice of them to stop their ride to help me out! THANK YOU!

It was our pleasure.



M-gineering SRS

srs02-01.jpg I discovered this interesting bike while researching the Bike Hugger Modal – here’s the translation from Dutch to English.

It’s a randonneur with enclosed Rohloff drivetrain and S&S Couplings.



BlackBottoms Argento shorts

W606_1.jpg Pam recently tested the BlackBottoms Argento shorts. The Argento is a women-specific short with a reflective panel for maximum visibility. Pam wore the Argentos during her commute and thought the reflective design is a great concept, especially when working late and leaving after the sun has gone down.

She thought the 4-way stretch-pad was comfortable and the short-cut leg fit her thighs just right.

Her only criticism was the material used for the shorts. For lack of better words, it was slick and plasticky. I noticed the blend BlackBottoms sent us (86% nylon/14%s pandex) is different than the blend they’re selling now (79% nylon 21%spandex) and that may account for the shininess.

If you’re riding at night, on dim-lit streets, the Argentos are a good choice.



Bike Hugger Shirts back in stock

While the socks and jerseys are being made, we’ve got another order of shirts in and are well stocked. The Amazon inventory will update in a few days and they’re shipping now directly from us via PayPal.

Team Bike Hugger has got the shirts as well and selling them at races and their get togethers to raise money. Their next race is Mt Hood. Check the shirt action shot in this post.



Bike Hugger Travel Bike

As per usual somebody’s nose was out of joint about the boy that had the bicycle off the London bridge road always riding up and down in front of her window. (James Joyce, Ulysess, Nausicaa, 16925)

Later this Fall, we’ll build up Bettie 2.0 and looking forward to it. This summer, in time for more travel, Mark V, Bill Davidson and bicycle experts at Elliott Bay Bicycles are working with us on the Bike Hugger Modal™, a travel bike.

Mark has traveled extensively on an S&S frame and is about to embark on a tour of Japan with one sweet set up. Bill has been building bikes for like a hundred years and I gave them some creative direction, the parameters I had in mind, and they’re going to design and build it.

Credit goes to Mark for conceptualizing a bike that’s at home in the city and out in the country on farm roads. The Modal is being built out a titanium with S&S couplings and the ability to quickly switch between gears and a single speed. More details, photos, videos, and of course travel to follow.
