PinkBike: Monkey Likes Shiny and the Rampage Trophies
MLS

“People like to use ADD as a crutch, I think it’s a blessing.” -Jeff Tiedeken

This year, at the Red Bull Rampage, Jeff from Monkey Likes Shiny supplied the trophies. If you recall, Jeff made that super slick gravity bike a few years back. PinkBike has a nice story up of Jeff that you should check out for some insight into how Jeff’s hyper creative mind works.

FOMO and the Blast Zone – Kyle Von Hoetzendorff
FOMO and the Blast Zone

FOMO and the Blast Zone
Photos by Ethan Furniss and words by Kyle Von Hoetzendorff

Ours is a world ripe with opportunity, one in which we have been blessed with the time and resources to pursue activities of leisure. I have spent a significant amount of time planning and accumulating a trove of memories that are anchored in recreational pursuits; time I mostly cherish, time like it or not I can never get back, because time is never in my corner. It races forward, thoughtlessly giving away it’s infinite increments, while I am left to selfishly consider how best to squander my finite tokens. We’re the singular results of our choices, moving from consequence to consequence with such persuasive and pervasive insistence as to appear pre-determined. Actionable or not, the appearance of choice haunts our rationale like a plague, at every turn a cross roads, at every stop a trailhead, skeins of choices beget skeins of choices towards a knotted and unpredictable future.

Those TCB Cyclocross Kits Look Awesome!
TCB_CX

Photos by John Daniel Reiss

In the world of cyclocross team kits, you can go a few directions. First of which being the standard issue (and most common), three or four colored panels and a bunch of sponsor logos with a pixelated team graphic. Second, you can go just plain crazy. All-over animals, cupcakes, donuts, cats, pandas, whatever. The brighter the better, more is more, instead of less is more.

From the looks of the new TCB Cyclocross kit, they went the third route: classy, with just the right amount of logos and clearly inspired by Cali surf style of the 1980’s. Now, if they only all piled into a Datsun to get to the races. Ok, or a YOTA.

The Radavist 2014 Calendar: November
RAD_NOV2014-800

This is the eleventh layout of the Radavist 2014 Calendar, entitled “Take the High Road”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.

After all the manure, cattle grates, and potential stampeding you on your ride, cows are good for at least one thing: making ribbon-like singletrack along the sides of country roads. Fun to ride on any bike. Apologies for this one being late!

Shawn from King Kog was over in Japan, visiting the home of Kinfolk frames. After visiting Kusaka San, the builder of Kinfolk, he was joined by the Kinfolk Japan team to partake in a cross race. Bob Woods shot some photos of this race, which you can see at his Flickr.

Looks like a fun race!
