More On those FBM Ride Endpoint Hunter / Gatherer Frames

“I love all kinds of bikes and different types of riding, but I am never quite sure where any of them will take me. Our latest adventure on wheels at FBM, a bad ass touring frame and fork call the Hunter / Gatherer, was designed in collaboration with our friends at Ride Endpoint and will be built in the FBM Machine Shop. Creating the Hunter / Gatherer was a combined effort of some great people, stoked on bikes, looking to have some fun! We hope you will join us…” — Steve Crandall

I think that’s something we can all get behind. Check out the latest on the Hunter / Gatherer frames at FBM’s blog and yes, you can still pre-order one of these killer bikes at FBM.

Bicycle Quarterly on Rivendell

“When Bridgestone USA closed in 1994, many mourned the loss of what they saw as the last bastion of sensible design in the quickly changing world of bicycles. They rejoiced when later that year, Bridgestone’s marketing manager Grant Petersen started Rivendell Bicycle Works. The new company’s first project were three hand-built frames, the Road, Mountain and All-Rounder.”

Touring Bike vs. Grizzly

I’ll admit it, I’ve had similar thoughts while touring in areas with Grizzlies. Glad to see this one worked itself out thanks to some witnesses.

I’m so stoked for Gabe and the rest of the Oregon Timber Trail team!

The Oregon Timber Trail is an iconic 668-mile backcountry mountain bike route spanning Oregon’s diverse landscapes from the California border to the Columbia River Gorge. Work developing the trail and route resources has been underway for eighteen months and this week the world gets to see the fruits of that labor. Today we have launched the official route and you can download it all at the Oregon Timber Trail. (more…)

FREE by Machines for Freedom

This is one of the most beautifully-shot and visually compelling cycling videos I’ve seen. There are so many wonderful shots including Tracy‘s Leica M240 selfie and that amazing Starling Flock as the riders descend at sunset. Here’s the description from Machines for Freedom:

None of this is free. But that’s what makes the payoff so sweet.

Anyone who has ever stuck with a training plan to prepare for a new challenge knows this. Anyone who has pedaled through a cold winter to reach new distances come spring knows this. Chances are if you’ve ever ridden a trainer indoors, you might have felt yourself banging up against that wall and asking yourself, why?

“Free,” the new film from Machines sets out to capture the inner dialogue of the rider who has found themselves at this crossroads and come out the other side with a reason… something to hold on to when those questions start to bubble up within.(more…)
