First Ride: Raleigh Roker


First ride impressions: it’s like a long Cross bike with big tires and from the first ride, feels more at home on the dirt than road. I’ll spend more time on all roads with the Roker, and write about it in an upcoming issue of our magazine.

Built: Make and Tell at DKCB

Built is a series of talks by people who create, and after a hiatus since SXSW, we’ve bringing the event back this Summer to DKCB in Fremont for Malts and Machinery.

Max Kullaway and Mark V will reveal their bike design and build process while Westland Distillery shares a tasting of their thoughtfully-made whiskey. We’ll have appetizers and craft beer during the evening too. If the mood is ride, maybe a song and dance…

Retro steel: because it’s funny to slip by riders on bikes that weigh less and have twice as many gears. But is friction shifting better than the latest 11sp systems on the market? No; it SUCKS.

Slipped on a 25-year old jersey and rode a 30-year old bike on a fine Sunday. No power meter, no Garmin…just my iPod shuffle. Coming back in from the Mercer loop, The Fixx came on, and one thing led to another.

Tour 16: Dangling Gold Chains


In this edition of the the Tour, we see dangling gold chains early, during the TTT. They usually come out in the mountains, when the racers are climbing.

After a long week and getting Issue 26 out, taking today off, and riding this afternoon. For more on the Tour, besides the jewelry, see these tech articles

The audio sample in the Vine, is from Kraftwerk’s Tour de France soundtracks.

The struggle of a climb. A beautifully crafted bike. Going on a diet. The dedication required to bike to work, complete a century, or race.

On iTunes and the Web for $16.00 a year or $4.00 an issue. The free cover story is about a baby-blue cargo bike and the dedication it took to release it to market.
