Little Hugger

Bike Hugger Socks

My son is a bike hugger…at 18 months. The kid gets all excited and looks for approval whenever he spots a bike. “Daddy nGike!”. I’ve been getting killed at work of late, but on those nights where I have gotten home early enough to catch him awake, he runs up to me yelling “nGike!” while pointing at the logo on my BikeHugger kit. It’s pretty darn cute. This last week he got into the laundry and found his favorite pair of daddy’s socks and put them on himself, and proudly wore them around his room. Thanks to my wife for capturing that moment.



Do the Test

A friend of mine sent this link to me. Great British humour, clever advertising campaign.

A little Friday afternoon bike music

I noticed a couple of bike-related tracks in the music blogosphere this week.

First, among the 763 South by Southwest sampler tracks was Be Your Own Pet’s Bicycle Bicycle You Are My Bicycle (Video - œTheir bloodlust knew no equal!). Stereogum made it a featured download on Wednesday. My take: Imagine Lisa Loeb singing lead for White Stripes. The refrain (œWe’re on two wheels baby…) rocks. Paul Ford at The Morning News reviewed all 763 tracks in 6 words: His take on BBYAMB: œPunky ladies sing goofy bicycle ditty.

Speaking of ditties, former band on the roll the Ditty Bops, were Thursday’s Top Tune at Santa Monica’s KCRW with the title song from their album Summer Rains (Video). This one feels like it came straight off a 78-rpm wax cylinder – very laidback.



Your 29er Is Now Hopelessly Inadequate

blonde36.jpg I was surfin’ around and I found this image from Blonde Fabrications. A 36-inch-wheeled mtb. Appropriately named the Amazon Blonde 36er, the builder apparently races it too. I’m sure it handles like a tank, but I love it when people are willing to push a concept (in this case, 29er wheels vs the standard 26 mtb wheels) to the extreme.

When you look at this picture, keep in mind that the my whole bike could pass thru the rim if it were not for the spokes.



Old School Betties!

Uploaded by photo_history, back in the day of the Safety Bike, that was some hotness. Also see this photo and the lyrics, “She had the sightless eyes, Telling me no lies Knockin’ me out with those American thighs,” came to mind.
