Off the Grid with the Cinelli Hobo

This is so rad!

“A new chapter begins with GEO, the ultimate adventure-bike for the offroad travel, which will take you where no one has before. Tested and refined crossing the incredible Darien Gap, the most secluded jungle on the earth, between Columbia and Panama, where the Pan-American road stops.”

Today, Sean, Spencer and I rode mountain bikes at some of our favorite local trails but more importantly, we went swimming afterwards. I can’t get enough of this kind of stuff. Swimming holes are the perfect way to end a ride.

Giro’s Empire VR90 MTB Shoe Blends Comfort and Style
Giro's Empire VR90 MTB Shoe

I really love my limited edition Giro Empire MTB shoes, but like all of my current shoes, when compared to the Vibram Terraduros, I wish they had more grip for walking over slippery rocks and loose roots.

Giro’s really going for it with the Vibram soles on their forthcoming shoe line and included in the bunch are the new Empire VR90 shoes. Shown here in a limited edition blaze orange.

I’ve been putting in some trail time with these and all I can really say is so far, so good. See a few more photos and more words below.

Yonder Journal: Trail of Tears Permanent
yonderjournal_totpermanent_radavist-4

Man, the latest from Yonder Journal is amazing. Earlier this year, the gang – sorry, I wasn’t able to make this one – headed to the Southern US to embark on an infamous journey: along the trail of tears.

While civilization has sept and crept in since settlement era, a majority of this landscape is still very much alive as it was in the early 1800′s. It was a dark time in our Nation’s history, yet it served as a fantastic stage for a Brovet.

See more at Yonder Journal as the gang traverses the mountains in North Carolina and Tennessee. Also check out more behind the scenes selects below!

The Athletic: Brian Vernor and Chris McNally Cyclocross Shirts
DSCF9775_SQ

Man, I feel like this collaboration has been in the works for ages. Two of my favorite artists, working together for one rad brand, the Athletic.

“Brian Vernor and Chris McNally teamed up to make these fantastic t-shirts. This isn’t the first time that these two have teamed up together, but it is something that they have been talking about for a while.

Aaron Bradford and Vernor set out to make this one at Wilder Ranch in Santa Cruz. Just as Brian and McNally did with their other shirt at Townsley Tunnel.

These are the spaces we ride all year round on cross bikes. In the North Cal. it is always cyclocross season, the terrain dictates it.”

This video’s so good.

“Meet Joe:
18 years old,
bike thief,
West Ham supporter and would-be charmer.
He owes money around town and must pay it back.
He tries to make good by selling some stolen bikes.
But his past catches up with him. Joe must pay for his misdemeanours.
Tooth for painful tooth.”

Nicely done fellas!

Perspective on Cross Vegas
2014 Cross Vegas

Let me begin this by saying this is by no means a pitty party post (PPP), it’s more of an open letter, or apology – the latter of which I’m still not sure I owe to anyone, but it’s easier to make mends than it is to carve a soap box from stone. And I suck at using a chisel.

QBP’s History of Fat and the Remolino Fat
fatbike-03

Remolino was the first company to go to market with all the crucial pieces that make a fat bike. Including 3.5” tires, 80mm rims, and a frame to accept the wide, plump tires. Ray Molina, the guy behind Remolino, donated a production model to help kick off QBP’s History of Fat exhibit at last week’s Interbike.

I had planned on shooting the exhibit, but every time I went by to check it out, the booth was swarmed.

Andy from QBP sent over a few studio shots of this bike, which you can check out below.
