Liz Modeling the Machines for Freedom Thrive Jersey

The Thrive print is inspired by the flora of the springtime and is metaphorically used to express our motivation to ride. Liz is one tough woman, taking on various rides like the White Rim trail and shredding Los Angeles’ trails on her mountain bike. She recently modeled the MFF Thrive Jersey and I think these are some of the best studio shots of a kit I’ve seen in some time. Check out more at Machines for Freedom.

tumblr_o6atrxeR4L1rk6u99o1_1280

“We’re heading to the Cub House in Pasadena, Saturday April 30th to check out the local riding and to hang out with the Ringtail and Team Dream Crew! We’ll be converging on theCub House at 8:30 AM and leaving at 9 AM to go for a 35-ish mile ride across mixed terrain along Highway 2 in the Angeles National Forest. Look for about 3,000 feet of climbing. The ride will be doable on a road bike, just bring flat repair! At noon, we’ll be meeting back up at the Cub House to drink beverages, eat food, hang out, talk bikes, and talk Stinner. Come join us for the ride and mingle, just the ride, or just the shop talk afterwards, we’d love to have you!”

I’d suggest a cross bike, but it’s been done on a road bike before. I’ll be there, so come along and join in on the fun!

New Belgium and Detroit Bikes

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that bikes and beer go well together. To celebrate their 25th anniversary, New Belgium teamed up with Detroit Bikes on a limited edition cruiser. Wait, is 2,500 still considered “limited?” Whatever! These bikes look great and they’re all over to non-endemic media, so head over to New Belgium to see more!

Must Thrive Socks
first_edit_flat_must_thrive

I like the looks and the sound of this project from Bonedeth (Dan Chabanov and Krista):

“For anyone who has ever felt like giving up, fought tooth and nail just to keep their head above water, and found themselves stronger because of their struggle. Designed with those suffering from chronic illness in mind, the Must Thrive socks are for the fighter in all of us. All proceeds will be donated to the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation in honor of the Ciminera Family. Please visit www.pkdcure.org for more information.”

Orders will start shipping out Mid May 2016. Head over and pre-order a pair of Must Thrive Socks! Nice one guys!

Strava and Global Bike to Work Day

Strava wants you to commute to work everyday but if that’s asking too much at first, why not try it on May 10th, when the rest of the world is observing Global Bike to Work Day? This isn’t just some marketing ploy either. Strava uses that data for Metro, a pool of user-submitted information that help people, including city planners, understand how humans use their cycling infrastructure. This ultimately results in a better, safer city for you to ride your bike in.

Though, remember, don’t blow up the spot. Turn off your Strava when poaching! I mean, don’t poach! Or something…

Bicycle Crumbs for Franco Bicycles
bicycle-crumbs-grimes-02

Bicycle Crumbs recently collaborated with Franco Bicycles on a custom painted, custom spec’d version of their Grimes all-road bike. Crumbs’ signature style is all over this build: a subtle dazzle pattern takes its color inspiration from a natural turquoise stone, which sits in contrast to orange and red concentric circles meant to mimic a desert sunset.

Check out a few more details below, and see the rest at Franco Bicycles! (more…)
