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.

Greg Lemond: How ya like me now!

I imagine Lemond is somewhere saying, “how ya like me now!” Portrayed as the bitter old champion, not given his due props, and the dude has been out saying all along that there were two speeds in the peloton: that he lost and left because he couldn’t keep up with the dopers. And this week, Zabel, Bolts admit doping. Today, Riis is expected to admit it – Musueew busted, who else? Don’t forget Lance’s contemporaries as well.

All this reminds me of the el dope penis graffiti you can catch a glimpse of during the mountain Stages of the Tour on OLN.

The sport is farcical now and it seems that bitter old man Lemond was right. He should be saying how ya like me now!
