Ren Cycles GX1 Carbon fork with Titanium Rando Rack

These 1.5″ tapered forks from Ren Cycles have a 400mm axle-to-crown, a 12mm thru axle, 50mm offset and will fit a 45mm tire. Best of all though, these forks are designed to work with racks, including the new Ren titanium randonneur rack. These racks will hold a bag like the Swift Ozette, or a Wald basket. Check out more information and Ren Cycles.

Ride in Peace, Mike Hall


Photo via Indian Pacific Wheel Race

We lost a legend today, yet in doing so, forever solidified his legacy. Mike Hall was a machine, a passionate human being, dedicated to pushing himself and the sport to its limits. I cried when I read about his death in Australia. Read about it at ABC. What an inspiration. Be safe out there.

You can donate to Mike’s family at Just Giving.

Byways Bottles Have Shipped

First, thank you so much for the overwhelming support of the products we sell here on the site. Second, I’m sorry our products like these bottles are so hard to get ahold of. There’s an economy of scale issue that needs addressing for products over here and we’re working on it. That said, we’ll be opening a jersey pre-order up in the next few weeks and there will be a big water bottle order going in around the same time.

My question to you is, which bottle design do you like? and in what size? Big bottle, or small?

Give Your Spurcycle Bell a Boost with the Belltower

If you’ve ever used a Spurcycle bell on a MTB, then you know how difficult it can be to properly locate it between you grips, brakes, dropper and shifter modules. The Belltower alleviates that. Acting like a spacer lift, the Belltower puts the Spurcycle bell a bit higher up… They’re $6.95, made in the USA and in stock now at Lindarets.

Overnighter in Porkkala

Sending high fives to the cyclists in Finland for this one!

“YV-leiri is a bike touring and camping concept ideated last year on Finnish online cycling community Yksivaihde.net. Since then people have packed their bikes and gathered around campfires almost every other month and the next camp is already being planned. The idea is not a group ride but just agreeing on the location and people keep popping up there with their tents, hammocks, sausages and beers all from their own directions.

A slingshot competition has been held many times but otherwise there are no has-to-do’s, agendas or anything forced. Just breathing the fresh air and doing anything you want in the wild.

Last weekend a group of eight guys spent a spring night in Porkkala. Ice and snow were almost totally gone and sea was open. Check the awesome sunset on the video “Overnighter in Porkkala”‘
