Rivendell: Hubbuhubbuh MTB Tandem Pre-order
Hubbu

Designed with Clem Smith Jr, the new Rivendell Hubbuhubbuh is a tandem unlike any other modern steel bicycle. Well, maybe there’s something similar floating around, but this one’s made by Rivendell! These frames come in three sizes, are tig-welded, fit 650B wheels, come with two seat posts (29.8mm), a elegant fork and a special Nitto stoker stem for $1,600 at the time of pre-order. Head to the Hubbuhubbuh (did I spell that right?) website for ordering information.

Search and State: S2R Performance Bib Short
s2-r-performance-bib-short-gray_front

I’ll still stand by my earlier claims that the Search and State S2R is the most comfortable pair of bibs I’ve ever worn. Now, for those of you who want something a little lighter in color for the summer months, they’ve just released them in grey. Expect the same fit and comfort as the black bibs, in a lighter tone. In stock now at Search and State.

Do Not Miss: Magnum Cycling – A Book About the Thrilling Sport of Cycling
MagnumCycling-1

As someone who is always looking for visual references or inspiration for cycling photography, when I think I’ve hit a creative block, picking up a photo book inspires me to not only pick the camera back up, but refresh my perspective on the world. In an age when digital media has taken over print, finds like this bring back the desire to make and create meaningful, timeless photography. Even if you’re not a photographer, a good photo book on cycling really makes you appreciate the sport, especially during the Tour de France! I can say without a doubt that the latest publication from Magnum has piqued my interest.

Look, I’m not selling you on this book, I’m only saying the next time you’re in the mood to buy a hardcover photo book, do not miss Magnum Cycling. Even if you just flip through the digital files at their site. But if you do wish to purchase it, your local book store can order these quite easily. Mine did!

Cherrapunji

I love this video so much!

“Cherrapunji is a region of Meghalaya, India. It is a hilltop plain where the sun shines brightly and storms rumble deeply. It was where I went to wrap myself in a blanket while I dealt with the split of Dan and I’s journey. Believing that it was also the splitting of our relationship and coming to terms with what looked very much like failure.

Once I had started cycling I felt comfortable but also very much alone, like a phantom limb I missed a partner. But as I climbed up more mountaintops and became more confident in my own ability I found the positives of being alone. Cherrapunji is a short about finding enough courage to set out alone on a bike tour. In a broader sense it is about women who do something courageous!”

A Chance Encounter
Horned_Lizard-1

Going slow during rides sometimes has its benefits. You’ll find new lines on a trail, or discover a new lookout point on a climb. Yesterday, during the heat of the day, Cari and I went to ride in the Verdugo mountains, my go-to ride spot in Los Angeles. Now, I’ve spent many hours climbing these steep beasts since moving to LA and in that time, have witnessed a broad selection of wildlife ranging from gray foxes, bobcats, rattle snakes, king snakes, red tailed hawks and even a weasel scurrying through the brush. Most of these animals I came upon while descending and spooked them on the trail but I rarely see anything other than the occasional gopher snake while climbing. (more…)
