Cuppow’s New Pfelt Jar Coozie
Cuppow-1

Our friends at Cuppow just released these Pfelt jar coozies to accompany 16oz widemouth jars. Made in the USA, from recycled plastic bottles, Pfelt is a durable material that is a perfect insulator for a hot glass jar. Drink coffee, tea, or just protect your jar from damage. The Cuppow lids are a personal favorite and these coozies make the setup even better.

These new Pfelt Jar Coozies are in stock now or you can buy a starter kit at Cuppow!

Breathe, Just

This video is about a man, his bike, a challenging climb and the struggle against an illness. A story about Andrea and the Passo Fittanze, during both the warm summer and the frigid winter.

SRAM: GX in Austin Texas – Far and Wide

Back during cross nats, the guys from SRAM were in Austin, filming a video spot for their new GX mountain group. I pointed them to a bunch of my favorite trails to ride, with the caveat that it’s all pretty unnavigable. They took off, scouring the Barton Creek Greenbelt, Pace Bend and other trails for a ripping good time and here’s the final product. Locals will recognize a lot in here (like the top of Quarry) and it’s rad to see my favorite spots gets shredded.

Morgan, let’s go skid leaves, baby…

Also, as a bonus, read on below for some words by Morgan Meredith and photos by Adrin Marcoux from the trip.

Firefly Goes Fat for Vittoria’s Bomboloni Tires
FireflyFatty4

Apologies for double dipping Firefly this week, but their latest bike is too good to not share. Immediately.

Firefly has appeared to have hooked up with Vittoria to make a custom titanium fatbike, modeled after their new 26″ fat tires, the Bomboloni (named after an Italian donut). All this is merely speculation, but I’m guessing the frosty branding and “bomboloni” on the top tube is enough evidence to deduce that.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a slicker, meaner bike from Firefly. Check out the segmented stays, slightly bent top tube, gussets and thru-axles! Nice work fellas. See the rest at the Firefly Flickr.

Sub 24 Sunset Chasing
Sub24_McKinney-post-16

Lauren and I have done plenty of camping and she’s done her share of cycling around town, but we’ve never gone on a bicycle camping trip together. Yesterday morning, I was surprised to hear her ask if I wanted to get in some tent time before I headed out on the road again on Friday.

So last night, I packed up some bags, a tent, my trusty Lodge cast iron skillet and food for two meals. We headed out to the closest state park in the area: McKinney Falls. The route there is pretty easy, even loaded down with a bunch of gourmet food, wine, a hatchet and a skillet. I took it slow and coached Lauren through the climbs, we stopped for photos and tried our best to ignore the impatient rush-hour traffic zipping past. The weather looked nice, with bright blue sunny skies. It didn’t rain this go-round, but it was still quite enjoyable…

I didn’t think this mandated a whole gallery, so check out a scrolling story below.

KERR- AAAAANG

With all this New Zealand fever happening on the site it is only fitting to feature Bernard Kerr absolutely devastating the trails around Queenstown. Bernard is quick enough to challenge for the podium at any World Cup race and he has the steeze to make this edit utterly enjoyable and with speed and grace that is obviously unattainable by us mortal men and women. While the riding is stunning, Bernard may want to check in with the Masters and Masters school of off-bike hijinks to tune up his delivery, its not that the lad doesn’t have it in him, its just the Wyn and Eddie might be able to help him punch up his gags a bit. No doubt though, Bernard has whimsy and good humor in his soul.

Twin Six: Standard Rando Framesets in Stock Now
TwinSix-Rando-BLACK

Twin Six’s affordable “do anything” frameset, the Standard Rando is now in stock at their site in gloss black or green. These frames tout a comfortable, yet non-sluggish wheelbase, a 45mm offset and come in sizing from 51cm to 59cm. Build them up as a cyclocross bike, or a light tourer / commuter with fenders and take your pick of 2x or 1x cable bosses.

Personally, I’m impressed with Twin Six’s bike lineup and for anyone looking for a $600 frame, the Standard Rando is a contender. Head over to see more information.
