Floyd’s of Leadville CBD Hemp Oil Suppliment

Yes! Floyd’s of Leadville, owned by Floyd Landis, has been making CBD supplements at his Colorado-based facility and now they’re ready for public consumption. These soft gel capsules will help ease joint and muscle pain, in a natural, addiction-free way. On a personal note, I give my dog, Max, CBD oil in his food to help his arthritis and I love to smoke high CBD weed on bike rides. Check out more at Flyod’s of Leadville and good luck to everyone racing Leadville! I’m lookin’ at you, Mike!

Paul’s Blue Balls

Whoa! Talk about a barn find!

“So…..here’s a funny story! We were about to demolish the downstairs bathroom and there were a bunch of old Sierra Nevada beer boxes above it with an inch of machine-oil soaked dust on them. Most of them were full of old paperwork, but upon peeking inside one of them, we were surprised to discover all the components and packaging to build up a bunch of this long discontinued product: “Blue Balls”. This was a seatbinder bolt we manufactured from 1992 to 1994. If you order one of these, you’re getting the original “New Old Stock” part, in its original packaging card with the peace sign on the back that Paul drew by hand. So all you people who’ve been commenting “Bring back Blue Balls!” on our Instagram….. There, we did it, who loves ya?!

These only fit frames designed for an external seatbinder bolt or quick-release, like your dad’s 80’s mountain bike. The minimum distance between the balls is 26mm, and the maximum distance is 40mm. If you don’t know if this will fit your bike, go to a bike shop and ask an expert.”

See more at Paul!

In Case You Missed It: Dynaplug’s New Handlebar Mount Prototype

Dynaplug has saved my ass on more than one occasion, especially on our sharp, rocky trails here in Los Angeles and literally a half mile in on our shuttle in Downieville last weekend. Unfortunately, the Dynaplugs are only efficient when you can access them quickly and mine are usually at the bottom of my camera bag, which forces me to plug the hole with my finger while I dig through my bag with one hand. Luckily, Dynaplug has been working on a solution to that problem with a new handlebar mount clamp that will hold their tire repair capsules. The nicest part about this system is it’ll save you precious seconds when it comes to rescuing your ride.

Once they release these, I’ll post again. If you haven’t checked out Dynaplug, do so at their site, or holler at your local shop to get them signed up as a dealer! Dynaplug is made in Chico by a group of rad people!

Leave it on the Road and the Big Lap

To honor Bill Brady and to fight cancer, Leave it on the Road gets ready for this year’s big trip:

Leave It On The Road is proud to present another epic cancer-fighting ride. Beginning Sunday August 6, 2017 six riders will ride 1000 miles in 10 days around Ireland in honor of Conor Brady’s father Bill, who lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in 2013. Bill’s racing career evolved into a love for multi-day rides, the most ambitious of which he called The Big Lap. We are honored to recreate this ride with Conor and share the story with you on Instagram. ”

And of course, they get to ride these sweet Speedvagens. Check out more photos below. (more…)

Not a Bad Way to End the Trip

All good things must come to an end, including a week-long High Sierra shred fest like this one. We’ve got lots to come this week from some of Northern California’s best trails and even better people, so stay tuned! For now, here are a few shots from our trip back to Los Angeles.

A Photo is Worth 140 Characters

This week at Saddle Drive at Northstar has been interesting, filled with everything from too much partying, to great conversations with friends, both new and old, as well as plenty of mountain time. The downhillers here have been overwhelmed with “kooks who can’t ride,” yet this photo says it all!
