Jeremy Sycip emailed me today to say that his brother and co-founder of Sycip Design, Jay Sycip, has joined Chris King. Word has it that he will assist in bringing King’s Cielo frames to market. Bike Hugger wishes him the best of luck in his new adventures in Portland, Oregon. Hopefully, Bike Hugger can make it down to Portland to see the operation soon.
To date, one of the most intense, extreme, Mtn-dew-drinking things I’ve done is ride in the Mavic Service Course car. Barking tires around corners, whipping around other cars in the caravan, and following a breakaway down an S-turning mountain road is right up there with white-knuckle, 55-mph, Mtn pass descents on my road bike.
