Rubber Side Up 11
RubberSideUP-11-03

Dylan Buffington from Mash took a bit of a spill during this year’s Red Hook Crit Brooklyn after a racer went down in front of him. Luckily for Dylan, the metal barricades cushioned the blow and his hand took a majority of the damage. He was rushed to the ER and stitched up before being sent home.

This was Dylan’s first ever Red Hook Crit and it left him eager to get back out there again. Racing brakeless track bikes in a criterium-format race is a true testament to bike control, race tactics and straight up luck. Sometimes you have the latter on your side, sometimes you don’t.

Glad you’re back on the bike and already ripping brother. See ya soon!

The Radavist 2015 Calendar: May
RAD_MAY2015_1000

EDIT: Just re-upped the photo to high res, sorry for the initial low res download.

This is the fifth layout of the Radavist 2015 Calendar, entitled “Marin’”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.

Those SF locals will recognize this coastal road in Marin County with its swooping descent and gigantic switch back. I’m not sure what’s more beautiful, the scenery or the number of people cycling!

For a high-res JPG, suitable for print and desktop wallpaper*, right click and save link as – The Radavist 2015 Calendar – May. Please, this photo is for personal use only!

Meet Your Maker with Above Category and Aaron Barchek of Mosaic
IMG_4230-copy

People have a lot of misconceptions about the frame building process and even the builders themselves, which is why I value a good interview. Above Category conducted one such interview with Aaron Barchek of Mosaic Cycles on their blog and it’s worth the read.

If you’d like to meet Aaron yourself, he will be visiting Above Category in early May. There will be a group ride on the 9th of May at 8.15am. More information to follow on AC in ‘The Broomwagon’ and their Facebook.

Camo shorts, check. Disma shirt, check. Neon enduro MTB, check. Thanks for the throwback thursday, Tracko! It’s my birthday today, so I went on a bike ride and took a nap.

Sorry for the slow afternoon on the site…

Mash SF: Dylan on California Street

Photo by Mike Martin

Mash has been working on a few new projects and part of that is documenting track bikes being thrashed on the streets of SF. This shot of Dylan on California street is amazing. The lean, the composition and those tracks. If you’ve ever ridden down this particular strip of road in SF, you know how rad this is… Keep ripping, Dylan.

Stay tuned for more at Mash!

SRAM: GX in Austin Texas – Far and Wide

Back during cross nats, the guys from SRAM were in Austin, filming a video spot for their new GX mountain group. I pointed them to a bunch of my favorite trails to ride, with the caveat that it’s all pretty unnavigable. They took off, scouring the Barton Creek Greenbelt, Pace Bend and other trails for a ripping good time and here’s the final product. Locals will recognize a lot in here (like the top of Quarry) and it’s rad to see my favorite spots gets shredded.

Morgan, let’s go skid leaves, baby…

Also, as a bonus, read on below for some words by Morgan Meredith and photos by Adrin Marcoux from the trip.
