OneUp Components EDC Tool Set Fits In Your Steerer Tube

OneUp Components‘ new EDC (short for Everyday Carry) tool set puts a multi-tool, tire lever, chain tool, quick link, spoke keys, and either a CO2 cartridge or a stash capsule inside your steerer tube – or inside their hand pump.

The steerer tube system only works with tapered aluminum mountain bike forks, as it requires the inside of the fork steerer to be threaded in order to use OneUp’s super light hollow stem cap. If you have a steel or carbon fork, you can store the EDC system inside OneUp’s hand pump. Pretty neat!

Watch the video below and check out the EDC system at OneUp Components. (more…)

Lee Craigie’s TEDx Talk is Amazing!

As Lee Craigie nears the end of her journey at this year’s Tour Divide, it’s incredible to think that after 19 consecutive days averaging 131 miles each, she’s still out there considering cooperation, collaboration, mutual care, and remaining connected to each other and the environment. Thanks for the inspiration yet again, Lee!

Blood Road

Rebecca Rusch has accomplished a hell of a lot in her career, and this film just adds to the depth of her story.

“Blood Road follows the journey of ultra-endurance mountain bike athlete Rebecca Rusch and her Vietnamese riding partner, Huyen Nguyen, as they pedal 1,200 miles along the infamous Ho Chi Minh Trail through the dense jungles of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. Their goal: to reach the crash site and final resting place of Rebecca’s father, a U.S. Air Force pilot shot down over Laos some 40 years earlier.

During this poignant voyage of self discovery, the women push their bodies to the limit while learning more about the historic ‘Blood Road’ they’re pedaling and how the Vietnam War shaped their lives in different ways.”

For more info, the digital download, and to find a screening near you, head over to Red Bull.

Recovering a Stolen Bicycle Takes Luck

Perhaps you remember when my Geekhouse touring bike was stolen from my house in Silver Lake? Well, that happened, for those of you who missed that note. It sucked. I wept and I was very, very pissed off. Especially since we had video of the dude and the cops weren’t being any help. Granted, this is Los Angeles and real crimes happen every day. Then, a few people sent me a link to the app Offer Up where a seller had my bike. I went to the police station, showed them the app – which they had never seen before – and told them I wanted to go down there with a few people and get it back. They laughed. Rightfully so, but they were also assuming I had no “street sense” or something, I forget what they said exactly.

The thing that sucked though was when this popped up, I was getting ready for a flight to London, so I had little to no time to do this. I just wrote it off, not wanting to endanger myself or my friends over a bike. Then a miracle of stupidity happened. Kyle met Geoff McFetridge and Nicholas Haig-Arack for a ride on a Saturday, when the thief rode passed on my bike, prompting Kyle to chase him down, knock him off the bike and steal it back. All while the thief was yelling “I just bought this bike for $500.” A lie. The video footage we had as an identical, 100%, match to the dude riding my stolen bicycle.

A victory! But with a lot of luck. Unfortunately, the bike had a few dents in the TT, parts were missing and other things were wrong with it, so I called up Marty at Geekhouse, who said he’d be stoked to repair the frame and make a few key changes to it, which I believe he’s in the process of doing right now. Stories like this are so few and far between when it comes to bike theft and with the latest surge happening across the US, I thought I’d share some positivity to the mix… Thank you, Kyle, Geoff and Nick for being such rad dudes!

Merckx Mondays

Man, I wish I could go to this!

“In 1976 Danish Filmmaker Jorgen Leth made the legendary sports and cycling film, A Sunday in Hell, about the Paris Roubaix cycling race. It defined a genre and helped put the Paris-Roubaix on the global sporting map. Watch some of the greatest cyclists ever compete in the most prestigious single-day event in professional bike racing. The golden era of cycling is in full form here. This is definitely the most important documentary ever made on the sport and argulably one of the best sports documentaries ever filmed. Simone Pace and Amedeo of Blonde Redhead have prepared an incredible adapted score that they will perform live accompanied by a string ensemble.

Live score by Amedeo Pace and Simone Pace (Blonde Redhead) with Jeanann Dara and chamber ensemble.”

Pick up tickets at the Bicycle Film Festival!
