The Wolf Tooth ReMote has changed my experience with dropper posts on my mountain bikes. Don’t look at it as a “his” and “hers” ReMote, but rather two limited edition colors that would match your bike’s build with brands like Industry Nine, Chris King, Hope, White Industries, Paul and others. Check these two limited edition colors out at Wolf Tooth.

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…)
… and I’m not trying to make a rhyme about it! Please, if you can head to Erik’s Instagram posts and keep an eye out for these unique bicycles. He is offering a healthy reward for their return. See each of these bikes in detail below. (more…)
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.”

For their latest product collaboration, All-City teamed up with Morgantown, West Virginia-based artist Deer Jerk on a capsule collection, featuring a cap, bottle and shirt. Head to All-City to read the full interview, go to your local shop to order and see the products below.
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!!
If you bid on this bike, thank you! If you read the post, thank you! If you took the time to send Edie positive energy, THANK YOU! All companies involved would like to thank you for helping us raise $5,600 for our friend Edie Perkins. Thanks to SRAM, Zipp, Brooks, Industry Nine and Chris King for donating everything needed to build the bike at Golden Saddle Cyclery, and to top it off, thanks to Stinner Frameworks for color-matching components!

Kirt Voreis takes to the desert for some pastel freeriding and a few tips from a lost prospector…
As noted last year, we lost our 2015 Image bucket do a server swap error. It was a huge bummer when I found this out and have been slowing re-uploading the files. Since NAHBS is right around the corner, I wanted to re-up a few from my favorite frame builders and makers. Included in this re-up are:
An Afternoon with Paul Component in Chico
Inside / Out at the Vanilla Workshop
Inside / Out at Black Cat Bicycles
Todd’s Black Cat Steel and Carbon Road Has 8 Lives Left
Inside / Out at Hunter Cycles
Watch out for the Hunter Cycles Bushmaster!
Inside / Out at Strawfoot Handmade
Sending sunny love from Southern California to all y’all. Next week, we’re heading to colder weather in the Northeast for some pre-NAHBS fun.
See more below…
… and I can’t stop eyeing it on their Flickr. Seriously, this is amazing. Everything about this build is wild. Discuss…
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.”
As far as innovative randonneuring bag designs without the need for a decalleur, I’d say Restrap is onto something here with their Rando Bag.
