Cadence and JDR: Dirty Hundo Zine
Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 9.14.45 AM

I know what I’m spending $10 on this morning! JDR documented the Dirty Hundo for Cadence and put together a zine. Races / rides like this are giving cycling the much-needed sense of fun in communities all over. Makes me wanna do something like this in Austin!

Scoop up a Dirty Hundo Zine at Cadence or get one free with $100 purchase.

I’ve Got the Jack Brown Blues
Still_Rolling

… continuing with the Fuji X-T1 test shots, I wanted to sing praises of these tires. Made in Japan by Panaracer, the Jack Brown “Blue” label 33.3 tires have been very good to me. I’ve yet to flat on them and even examining the tread as I was shooting this photo, I found a number of thorns and copper wire pieces stuck in its hardy casing.

If I had to guess how many miles I’ve put on them, it’d be over 1000. Most of which are from around town trips.

Sure, the rolling resistance is higher than other comparable offerings – including the Jack Brown “Green” – but for an around town / touring machine, I’d rather have a reliable tire than one that flats on thorns or road debris.

Pick up the Jack Brown Blue tires at Rivendell for $63 /each or $126 for a pair.

For those wondering about the camera and lens, this is my Zeiss 28mm f2.8 on the X-T1 shot wide open.

Leh Seats

It’s rad that Carson lives in Austin. I need to get over to his shop!

“Carson Leh has been making custom leather bicycle seats and cycling accessories for 4 years. He started in 2010 recovering torn BMX saddles and in 2013 he founded Leh Seats. He not only manufactures leather bike saddles and handle bar tape, but has recently branched out with new leather goods such as Macbook cases.

He produces small production run leather goods for contract in the USA. Filmer Brian Chace of www.chaceproductions.com visited his Austin based workshop this winter to speak with him about his work and inspiration from brogue wingtip dress shoe and boot making. This short film shows the process of one of his custom made BMX seats. Each BMX seat is guaranteed for life against tears. You can find him at www.lehseats.com or on Instagram @lehseats.”

No matter what MTB I’m currently reviewing, I love getting out on my IF. Sure, I’ve gotta be mindful with my lines, but it’s a no-nonsense shred sled!

I’ve been shooting a lot with the Fuji X-T1 these days, so there will be a lot of little posts like this.

A Bottle of Bourbon and A Bicycle
Fuji_Tests-1

A few of my favorite things: Colonel EH Taylor Bourbon and my Geekhouse on a sunny Friday… After seven weeks of sobriety I’ve been taking it easy with bourbon. I’ve had a few glasses over the past week, but I’ve learned to enjoy it.

I don’t know why I’m posting this, all I know is I dropped a lot of weight not drinking for a month. Like down from 200lbs to 180lbs. It’s insane…
