“Chris Chance is bringing back Fat Chance Bicycles. Making a killer bike back in the day wasn’t easy and bringing it back to life 15 years after closing down shop can’t be either. Chris will be speaking at Mission Workshop San Francisco Saturday August 15th. John Watson will be leading the questions, but attendees are welcome to ask Chris what’s on their mind. The talk will be live streamed on TheRadavist.com so you can follow along from your garage, but if you’re local, email [email protected] to grab a seat. Beers start at 5pm, doors close at 6:30pm. Talk starts at 7pm.”
We hope to see you there!

The Rapha Prestige Midwest: Humidity Reigns
Words and photos by Kevin Scott Batchelor
The last time I got the call to cover a Rapha Prestige event, I found myself wondering how any of the teams were going to handle the brutal course that had awaited them. More than 130 miles with 14,000 feet of climbing, on mixed terrain, with dizzying temperatures, sounded much more like a stage in the Vuelta than something my friends might ride. LA was a monster, complete with jagged teeth and scorching breath. With only a fraction of the teams finishing what was surely the hardest ride of their riding lives, this would be the last of the pro tour level parcours, right? (more…)
If you’re going to be in Portland this weekend, make sure you swing through the Bike Industry Insider Sale going on at the Vanilla Workshop this Sunday from 12-6pm.
