Pedal to Peaks

The bicycle is an exceptional vehicle to take you where you wanna go, even if it’s to ski mountains along the length of the Lofoten archipelago in Norway.

North Coast Watchman

Duluth’s trails are something I’ve yet to experience and while they’re ripping all summer, as Advocate Cycles proves in this video, their Watchman fatbike is more than capable of making even a winter trail session lots of fun.

Whisky Parts Co: No. 7 Road Fork
WhiskyNo7

As we’ve seen on the new All-City Mr. Pink road bike, Whisky Parts Co have developed a carbon road fork for 1 1/8″ head tubes with integrated and hidden fender mounts, allowing you to either lighten up your existing road bike, or finally put that lonely frame in your garage to use. Best of all, in my opinion is the fork will clear 35mm tire on a 700c rim or 47mm tire on a 650b rim through utilizing a long reach caliper. The No7 fork has no rider weight limit, a 5 year Whisky warranty and is rated for ASTM Condition 2. Which translates to off-road riding and jumps less than 12″. The No7 retails for $399.99. See more details at Whisky and holler at your local bike shop for ordering.

Compass UD-1 Rack for Disc Brakes
ud_rack_above

Got a bike with rack mounts but having a hard time finding a rack that will work? Maybe it’s a disc brake bike and the caliper is in the way? Whatever the reason, the gents at Compass have designed a rack, dubbed the UD-1, that will work with *most* bikes. Head over to Compass to read up on it.

The San Gabriel Mountains: Above the Clouds

I love seeing videos like this from my favorite place to ride…

“In 2014, President Obama designated a portion of the San Gabriel Mountains as a National Monument. Located northeast of Los Angeles, California, these mountains often experience a weather phenomenon of inversion clouds called “marine layer” due to their proximity to the cold Pacific Ocean. From 2012 to 2017, I frequented the San Gabriel Mountains recording time-lapse footage in a variety of weather conditions and seasons to showcase the natural beauty of these mountains. To learn more about marine layer, visit the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration site. To learn more about the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument visit this website
