Neko Mulally’s Bad Luck 13

Neko snapped his chain, right out of the gate and still pulled off one of the best times of the day at the UCI Downhill WC, landing him in 4th place overall. All this kinda makes that bad luck 13 number suddenly seem quite lucky. I can’t stop watching this.

Thanks for sharing this video, Neil!

Manual For Speed does Vegas
manualforspeed_crossvegas_fansies-1

There are some weird, strange places on the internet and Manual for Speed is one of them. Not many media outlets can tackle Las Vegas into submission, but these two put out a damn good effort. See the Las Vegas Red Carpet post and the Cross Vegas coverage at Manual for Speed.

Also, surely you can see the difference between Daniel and I, right?

Made in the USA: SILCA SuperPista Ultimate Floor Pump
SP2_3_qtr_view_Small_1024x1024

Everyone always asks me what’s the one product I liked at Interbike and I never really have a clear answer. This year however, I was most impressed with one accessory.

Silca’s undergone a bit of a domestic production revival.

Their products are now made in the USA. From Co2 chucks to this SuperPista Ultimate Floor Pump.

This one’s not for the bargain seekers, but I will say, it’s a damn fine floor pump. Every single piece is machined and finished. It’s like the Rolex of bike pumps. See more (including the price) at Silca.

Cinelli Winged Store: Neil Bezdek Rider Cap

Man, it’s a Red Hook Crit morning. Here’s a video showcasing Neil Bezdek and his Rider Cap:

“Neil Bezdek is a bike racer, advocate, commuter, and writer based in New York City. Neil grew up mountain biking on singletrack outside of Denver, Colorado before falling in love with road cycling while attending college in scenic Santa Barbara, California.

After a year-long stint as a bike messenger in New York City, Neil took up road racing and competed professionally for three seasons. Now pursuing a “grown up” career in NYC’s Department of Transportation’s Bike Share Program, Neil still finds time to moonlight as a semi-professional at races across the US while also contributing regularly to Bicycling magazine.

Neil is a four-time winner of the Red Hook Criterium, which we considers his all-time favorite cycling event.”

Pick up a cap at the Cinelli Winged Store.
