Lies the factory that makes amazing tubes. View Larger Map It’s like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, except with steel.
We’re two weeks away from the Roubaix and our plans are coming together. Not the solid kind – hotel, transportation. But the actual comprehension that we’re going to be in France, in Roubaix, witnessing our favorite race with our own eyes. We’re saving all of our actual prep for when we arrive in Rome. From [...]
So the last time I attempted the Ronde I missed some of the markings, partially due to fatigue, partially due to them being faded in some areas. I missed Brynwood, and College, which are the gnarliest climbs of the whole route. This time was different. Stocked with enough water and a better understanding of the [...]
Mongoose Fixed Gear We thought the bars-as-wide-as-grips phenomenon was bad. We thought the Aerospokes we bad. Even the 650c up front seemed like the end. When Walmart starts selling fixed gears for $150 I think it’s finally over. Even though I no longer ride a fixed gear, it’s impossible to throw a stone in this [...]

Cthulhu makes a weekly trip to the mountains (if not more) for some rad getting. At the risk of blowing the lid right off this place(it’s not like anyone reads this but me) I’ll link you to the BLM site itself. Built in conjunction with NWTA/IMBA these trails are state of the art. Sustainable, thoughtful, [...]
Cheech, I think you may be forgiven for that stint on Nash Bridges now. Seriously, what were you thinking?
” /> I have a great idea for a team photo! Except you on the left. You’re gonna have to sit on a barrel.
While I’m not always keen on bike advocacy, I do often join in when the cause is on the right track. Getting more federal money for transportation alternatives sounds like a good idea to me. So sign up already and be counted. Also, the site is really well built, and although it’s got a web [...]
