This crew knows how to party!

“During the Easter of 2017 we packed our camping gear on our mountainbikes and went to ride the Roslagsleden hiking trail in Sweden. There are several campsites and lodging is available throughout the trail but anyway we carried our own tents. Trees by the trail are marked with an orange color, so it is virtually impossible to get lost. Roslagsleden starts in Danderyd and finishes in Grisslehamn, and also passes through the town of Norrtälje where we had our finishing pizzas and headed back south.”

What is “Tramontana?”

“…is a journey through human ancestral fears and primordial virtues of the fire, the natural element that, since the dawn of time, allowed it to defeat the dark, the cold, the isolation and the wild beasts. A tribute to the human wild side that gets lost in the origins of our story.”

Red Diamond Rattlesnakes and Dropping Out of Art School in Laguna

Tuesdays are almost as bad as Mondays, so anytime I get the chance to ride, I take it, as long as I’ve done my work for the day. Last week a few of us decided to ride the trails in Laguna, about an hour’s drive south of Los Angeles. Our plan was to leave mid-day, ride until sundown, eat dinner and head back once traffic had subsided. Yesterday, we met up at Golden Saddle, packed the cars with gear, our stomachs with food and drove to what has to be one of the best places for mountain biking in Southern California. (more…)

Just When Disc Brakes Were Beginning to Look Clean

I get it. I understand the necessity to keep the peloton safe from those dangerous, butcher shop-grade, flying death discs in the event of a Nascar pileup on a descent but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. Late last week, Germany parts manufacturer and all around Black Forest component wizards, Tune, unveiled what I will say is the sleekest, most design savvy protective cover for disc brakes yet. Still, though, the fact that the UCI is fighting this issue so hard is mind-blowing. What about chainrings? Or barbed wire fencing lining race courses? Or stupid wheels exploding? Or press motos? If the world is afraid that disc brakes are going to end a race by fatality, perhaps there’s more to this debate. Anyway, I saw Tune’s attempt at solving this problem and felt it needed a share. Carry on with your morning…
