In what’s been described as an odd, strange year for the industry, the first bike I see is the Yendra Bootlegger…well, let’s get this party started, right! The Bootlegger was featured in Logan’s free cover story from Issue 26 and there it is, up on two of its three wheels. Read more about the Bootlegger on iTunes or the Web, and I’m sure I’ll see it again, doing tricks and stuff.
Phil getting after it
Drifting with the tide, then close to shore, Sage Cycles and Lucky Envelope Brewing reached the beach at the first MFG Cross race of the 15/16 season.
Ti, disc, spec’d to race
Lance is the villain and Walsh the hero, The Program plays like a gangster movie, and just premiered in Toronto with a release in theaters next month. Variety has the story, and the new trailer is above.
The movie, which uses Walsh’s book “Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong” as its source, follows Walsh’s pursuit of Armstrong (played by Ben Foster). Walsh (played by Chris O’Dowd) was for many years a lone voice in suggesting Armstrong was doping, and it became a battle of wills between the two. “It did become quite personal because we went back so far,” Walsh told Variety. “I’d interviewed him when he was a kid and I liked him.”
…the wheel is rad for CX. It’s superlight, but built for offroad use. The other mega benefit is that although the original design was for use with MTB tires, as the trend towards wider rims/tire beds arrived, we ended up with a rim that was somewhat obsolete for MTB use, but ideal for CX tires. It’s a sweet combo.
Really is and that’s for Cross Country or Cyclocross.
