A Look at the Ultra-Low Visibility Camo Leh Cycling Goods Bar Tape and Saddle Bag

With NAHBS approaching – this weekend! – one of my favorite features to photograph are the unique touches that make the bikes of the show, show bikes. While not everyone can afford a crazy titanium fatbike with bends for days, or a carbon road bike that weighs only 12 lbs, that doesn’t mean we can’t accessorize our bikes to look like a balleur show bike.

Leh Cycling Goods is a leathersmith, based in Texas, that makes custom saddles, bar tape, and other cycling accessories, but what makes Leh different from the others is his ready-made stock, including leather-clad saddles! I’ve been using two of Leh’s products on my Speedvagen OD OG-1 and they really bring this bike’s whole package up a few notches… Check out more below. (more…)

Ponderosa Cyclery + Tour Enamel Mugs

I love a good product with an even better back-story and you can tell the team at Ponderosa really loves Pine Ridge:

“What yer seeing here (the topo) is the Pine Ridge of Nebraska. Real special place. Two-track, big pine forests, grasslands, badlands… most of the good stuff. We like to ride bikes out here. In the grand scheme of things, this is the very northwest corner of the state. Sioux County (number 80 on the plates, 1 in your hearts). Wyomin’ just to the left, South Dakot’r to the north. Elevation is between 4800′ and 5000′. High plains. Lots of Ponderosa (“x” marks the Champion Ponderosa), lots of Yucca. It’s where the Munsons live. Go out there, ride a bike, camp in Gilbert Baker (WMA), sleep among the trees and under the stars. You won’t (can’t) regret it.”

Check out these enamel mugs and other products at the Ponderosa Shop!

Bloody Disc Brakes!

In a freak accident, total bad ass of a cyclocross star Katie Compton was mangled at the start of Saturday’s race – the Ijsboerke Ladies Trophy – in Lille, Belgium by a fellow racer’s disc brake rotor during a crash. This kind of event is exactly what the UCI will use to solidify their disc brake safety laws. You can see the graphic photo at Mr. Katie Compton’s Twitter. On a more positive note, it appears the laceration was clean enough to make dressing the wound easy. Personally, I think it’s one hell of a story and accompanying battle wound.

Congrats on your killer season, Katie. Heal up quick!!

An Afternoon with Paul Component in Chico

Cocora Velo

This takes the whole camp coffee and coffee outside thing to a whole new level!

“All The Places is a travel film series exploring our relationship with food, culture, sport and the environment. Each bikepacking trip maps out a new travel route through a region of global significance – whether it produces coffee, whiskey, music, tea, apparel, world class athletes, palm oil, or centenarians.

Colombia is world class in two things, coffee and cycling. In episode one, CocoraVelo, we look at these two important and very well-acquainted industries and as they converge in a symbiosis unlike anywhere else in the world.

This is the Napa Valley of coffee.”
