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…)

Santa Cruz Bicycles Updates the Tallboy
tallboyherotry3_1

I love, love, love my Tallboy and yet, I do wish it were a bit slacker and longer. Clearly, the team at Santa Cruz Bicycles felt the same and decided to smoke the Tallboy out… The head angle dropped to 68º and updated the rear to 110mm of VPP travel. The reach got longer and the chainstays shorter, bringing this 29r platform up to date with the rest of the SCB line. Best of all, a flip chip on the upper link, combined with a 130mm fork allows you to run 27.5+ wheels. Now we’re talking! Head over to Santa Cruz for more!

A Carbon Rack for Your Road Bike

Hanging out at bike shops for a large part of my life has taught me many things, one of which being: people want to put racks on their road bikes. Even their race bikes. Check out Tailfin, a new ultra-light carbon rack for your road bike.

Rapha: Merino Rivals Jersey
Screen Shot 2016-04-25 at 5.23.48 PM

I love it when Rapha does Rapha. Don’t get me wrong, there are many facets to the brand yet the designs that also resonate with me are their themed merino jerseys. Take the newest to their collection: the Merino Rivals Jersey. Inspired by the intense rivalry between two Italians of note: Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi. This jersey is colored in Neapolitan hues and accented with classic details. Read more at Rapha!

Road to Red Hook Video

We posted the trailer for this a bit back, now here’s the full-length video, Road to Red Hook.

“Road to RedHook tags along with 4 talented women as they gear up for the 2nd year of the Women’s RedHook crit–a fast, competitive bike race in Brooklyn, New York.
Anyone can look pro with some good glasses and fancy spandex, but the interviews uncover these girls to be sweet, funny, hopeful, and above all– totally human. The participants involved with this video want to remind all those hopefuls out there that sometimes the hardest part of racing is just getting to the starting line.

Featuring:
Erica Schwanke
Christina Peck
Ayesha McGowan

Machines for Freedom in Death Valley

Photos by Tracy Chandler

Death Valley is one of my favorite National Parks and while its conditions in the summer are far from inviting for even the most experienced cyclists, the spring and late fall can make for exceptional riding weather. Machines for Freedom used this pastel backdrop for their latest photoshoot. Head on over to MFF to check it out!

The Weekend Ended Like This
LeicaM-338

… outriding storm clouds at the highest point in the City of Los Angeles and then finding myself on a MTB trail on my ‘cross bike, completely covered in flowering Spanish Broom. Hope yours was filled with lots of riding and your steeds are sated.

King Cage Universal Support Bolt
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So… I’ve seen these before, but never had a chance to pick up a set, or photograph them in action. Luckily, Ocean Air Cycles did both of those for us. Ron at King Cage makes these. They’re essentially a hose clamp with a bottle boss welded onto it, allowing you to ad bottle cages to virtually any area of your bike. Just make sure you wrap your frame or fork with a protective tape as shown. Head to your local King Cage dealer to scoop up a set!

This sounds incredible!

The Hack Bike Derby is an annual event held over 2 days with a different type of bike and series of races proposed for each year. This year, the first year, the theme is klunkers; the original Mountain Bikes as raced from around 1976 in California, USA.”

See more details below. Anyone have photos of the bikes?
