by editors on October 28, 2013

Thanks to living in Sunny Southern California we don’t need any of this new Rapha autumn and winter gear, not that we could afford it anyway. But is sure is fun to watch other cyclists suffer the weather, isn’t it?

by editors on October 28, 2013

A film by Fredrik Gertten.

Climate change and the daily stress of being locked up in a car frustrate people more than ever. People in cities around the world take on the bicycle as a Do It Yourself tool for change.

This should be good.

The “Sex Selling” Trail Rider

by editors on October 28, 2013

Say what you will, this girl rips. At least we think it’s one girl. Is there a body double involved? We’ll never know because we never really see her face. . . maybe we’ll have to watch it again to be sure.

WTB Goes Tubeless For Cyclocross

by editors on October 17, 2013

Chris Cross Wtb

Sometimes it seems those slow-to-change cyclocross traditionalists are being dragged into the future kicking and screaming. First it was disc brakes (oh, the horror) and now it is tubeless tires. You know, like the ones mountain bikes have been running for years and cars have been rolling for decades. WTB is backing this latest development pretty hard with their new ChrisCross i19 700c TCS rim and Cross Wolf 700 x 32c TCS tire.

“The ChrisCross is named after me because I wanted it on my bike,” stated WTB’s Product Manager Chris Feucht, matter-of-factly. “Cyclocross needs tubeless, so I walked this rim from concept all the way to production, hence ChrisCross. Plus, it pays homage to one of my heroes, Chris Chance, who had a bike called the Chris Cross back in the day.” When combined with the Cross Wolf 700 x 32c TCS tire, also UST standards-driven, riders now have a tubeless cyclocross system available from WTB.

It’s about time. For the official word from WTB follow the jump. [click to continue…]

Pure Fix Pours A Stiff Bourbon

by editors on October 7, 2013

Web-City 0001 Bourbon 1024X1024

We see no real purpose for the city bike. But even hardened as we are, we do admit to enjoying the smooth urban lines of the Pure Fix Cycles Bourbon. Like they say:

Our Bourbon is one smooth glass of class. Designed to effortlessly take you from Point A to Point B(ar), it’s ready to quench your thirst for riding, and give you a nice little buzzy feeling at the same time.

If we weren’t so dedicated to the segment, we might even take one of these little cruisers for a sip.

The BLOAT Lie Official Trailer

by editors on October 7, 2013

As maybe one of you may know we have stricken the name of the BLOAT (Biggest Liar Of All Time) from our site because we don’t want to give or get any Google juice from the juicer, but here is a little clip that everyone will find compelling. And yes, we’re looking forward to seeing the BLOAT movie even though he has that ability to turn even the most awful crimes into building his now infamous legend. Guess there’s no way to get around it.
