Artist Sollars created a waterfront studio in the Bayview and repurposed a series of barnacle-encrusted objects pulled in from the bay for use back in town, including this bike. A bike from Davey Jones locker with a crusty, patinaed finish has us wondering what bikes are at the bottom of Elliott Bay in Seattle or the canals in Amsterdam.
What steel survives the bay?
In 2010, FITC commissioned art bikes we rode them around Amsterdam, and left them behind in a bike rack.
Art bikes in a rack
Wonder where those are now?
The Transition is available later this month for $599.00
First saw this new travel case from Thule at Interbike and was very impressed then. This is the second unit to ship out of Thule’s Chicago factory and I’ll leave it in the dining room as long as the family allows. It’s a travel case sculpted so well, it looks like art. It also combines, style, protection, and convenience with its integrated work stand. So what the industrial designers at Thule did is take their roof rack tech, put it into a bike case, and then attached a bike stand to it.
Brilliant and we’ll try it next month on our next trip. We normally travel with S&S bikes, but for this case, we’re making an exception.
With some exotic thermo engineering, using hydrogen peroxide as fuel, a new world speed record was set for a rocket-propelled bicycle. Watchmaker Hublot sponsored the effort. While not as dramatic as Van Damme’s epic split, the rocket bicycle does spew out a massive plume like a dungeon dragon AND, as the exotic thermo engineer tells us,
If you were to pour it (the fuel) on your hair, it’d catch fire.

Lance is spending the only currency he has left and that’s to tell all. The bomb he dropped in the Daily Mail isn’t surprising for those that follow doping in the sport. What the explosiveness also reveals is how bike industry media still doesn’t tell the story. 2 weeks ago, and what prompted an editorial in our Magazine and a post on Medium, is Lance’s interview with Bike Radar. In a 2 part exclusive, he said he was ready to talk and didn’t say anything substantially more than what he told Oprah.
As the conspiracy blows apart, it’s time for a what did you know and when did you know it moment in the sport and to follow the money. Meanwhile, the old-schoolers in the sport still marvel and sell Horner’s “amazing win.” We hope he’s present too at the UCI’s impending Truth and Reconciliation committee meetings.
Those meetings may play out with the same irony as this interview being done in Celebration, Florida, developed by Disney and where The Truman Show was filmed.
