The Weekend Ended Like This
LeicaM-338

… outriding storm clouds at the highest point in the City of Los Angeles and then finding myself on a MTB trail on my ‘cross bike, completely covered in flowering Spanish Broom. Hope yours was filled with lots of riding and your steeds are sated.

King Cage Universal Support Bolt
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So… I’ve seen these before, but never had a chance to pick up a set, or photograph them in action. Luckily, Ocean Air Cycles did both of those for us. Ron at King Cage makes these. They’re essentially a hose clamp with a bottle boss welded onto it, allowing you to ad bottle cages to virtually any area of your bike. Just make sure you wrap your frame or fork with a protective tape as shown. Head to your local King Cage dealer to scoop up a set!

Hack Bike Derby

This sounds incredible!

“17 frame builders racing home hacked Klunkers over a rain & fire filled weekend in Somerset. The Hack Bike Derby is an annual event held over 2 days with a different type of bike and series of races proposed for each year. This year, the first year, the theme is klunkers; the original Mountain Bikes as raced from around 1976 in California, USA.”

See more details below. Anyone have photos of the bikes?

Gian Lucagimini’s Velocipedia Renderings of Drawings
Gianluca_Gimini-Velocipedia-7

People, of all ages are masters of the sketch or doodle. Their interpretations of everyday objects can sometimes provide inspiration to artists like Gian Lucagimini to render these sketches in 3D. Honestly, these look way better than most of the concept bikes we see. Check out more at Velocipedia!

Breadwinner’s Goodwater 27.5+ Hardtail Has Landed
Goodwater_Green_XTDi2_Pro_Post

One of my favorite bikes from NAHBS is now available as a custom model within Breadwinner’s extensive bicycle lineup. The Goodwater is a 27.5+ hardtail that can also take a 29’r wheelset. It’s got internal routing, Di2-ready integration and thru-axles. This bike is high on my list of hardtails and honestly, I’m really pumped for Tony and Ira. Check out the Goodwater at Breadwinner!
