Record Shops Supporting Bike Shops in Los Angeles
GSRATracko

Here’s some more of that community building the dudes at Golden Saddle were talking about in that last video. Amoeba Hollywood will have two new GSC shirts for sale tomorrow.

“Bike riding is awesome: no released pollutants, one less car on the road, it’s good for your community and good for YOU. Amoeba Hollywood and Amoeba San Francisco are celebrating bike culture in partnership with the Bicycle Coalitions of L.A. & S.F. and want you to join us Sunday, August 17 12-5pm. Free treats, DJs, and a chance to win cool bike gear and prizes—all while raising funds for the Coalitions!”

Check out more at Amoeba and thanks for the heads, Tracko!

Seriously, support your local record shop, buy vinyl, not MP3s!

Speedplay Zero Pavé Pedals Enjoy Playing Dirty
Speedplay_Pave_Zero-1

I’ve always wanted to ride Speedplay pedals, but with all the hike-a-bike rides I do, it would wreak havoc on their cleats. I’m sure this isn’t the first time Speedplay’s had that criticism and maybe that’s the motivation behind their new Zero Pavé pedals.

Here’s their selection criteria:

-You enjoy riding in mixed terrain environments, road, gravel, or cobbles
-You demand a high performance pedal in wet and dirty conditions
-You expect to walk on un-paved surfaces

Basically, if you enjoy riding your road bike off-road, these might be your new best friend. Head to your local shop for ordering and if you have tried these out yourself, let us know your thoughts!

Made in the USA
