World Famous Bike Dude

During the Methow Valley Tour Time Trial, Dave from the DTours bike shop rolled up on his Peugeot and chilled. When I snapped this photo, he told me that, “he was all over the blogosphere with the bike tourists that take his picture and put it on their blogs.”

Word. See more from the Methow Valley in the Bike Hugger Photostream.

Clip-n-Seal Mondo

We’re not sure how exactly Reynolds Composites are using Clip-n-Seals, but building carbon wheels is my favorite industrial use for Clip-n-Seals – well that and flying around in the Space Shuttle. We’ll post more about Reynolds wheels after a few more races on their Attack carbon clinchers – hopefully I’ll learn how our little invention figures in. Until then, we just started selling the Clip-n-Seal Mondo directly to consumers, small business, and hobbyists, and anyone else that has a mondo bag of chips to keep fresh! Purchasers of our love the hugga tees, have received a bonus Clip-n-Seal in their packages …

Clip-n-Seals are a product that Textura Design, the parent of Hugger Industries and Bike Hugger, invented and brought to market with blogs.

Muji Bikes

Wherever Mark V is, during his Japan Tour, I hope he can make it into a Muji Store to check out the bikes, like the one shown in the photo, or any in their bike catalog (pdf).

Raleigh Chopper Bicycle

djkieron.jpg In the 70s, there’s nothing I wanted more than to be like Evel Knievel (profiled earlier this year by USAToday). I practiced daily on my bike, even jumping 7 neighborhood kids once for a neighborhood record and subsequent lifetime ban from the whole jumping kids thing (I nicked one).

Scrolling through Steve Mandich’s Evel Incarnate site and seeing DJ Kieron in a replica EK jumpsuit with matching Raleigh Chopper bicycle, made me realize how far I could’ve taken my Evel Kneivel thing, if not for that flawed 7 kid jump. The Raleigh Chopper was cool.

Lily Allen rides a chopper in the cover art to her Alright, Still single. Raleigh revived the Chopper in 2004, sold them in the USA through 05, and the fan clubs continue today, all over the world.



Flight of the Conchords: Hair Helmet

helmet_hair.jpg In HBO’s new comedy series, Flight of the Conchords, Brett works Tuesday nights on his secret project: a hair helmet.

For trivia buffs, the original hair helmet was sported by Lily Tomlin during an appearance on Laugh In in the 70s, but that was her real hair.

So anyway the Flight of the Conchords have a website but there are some problems with it, because they “update it quite a bit at first and then not as much, and then kind of get into it again and put a few more things on it and then just forget about it for a while and then get into it again.”

They’re all over YouTube and I’m expecting Brett’s hair helmet to make more appearances, as well as his bike.
