Living the #RadGoldenDream en Route to Interbike
RadGoldenDream-1

For the next few days leading up to Interbike, I’ll be on the road. Kyle and Ty from Golden Saddle, Sean from Team Dream and myself will be trekking out to Vegas via a few choice trail systems. While we’re on the road, we’ll be documenting the shenanigans thanks to Impossible Project‘s instant film and Mission Workshop / Acre‘s kick-ass gear!

If I get ahold of WiFi, I’ll be updating the site, if not, expect everything to resume with Interbike coverage on Tuesday.

Follow us on Instagram.

This is what happens when you have the Jack Brown Blues…

These particular tires were bought by one of our customers for the Dirty Hundo earlier in the year. After the ride this customer decided he would never ride a bicycle on the dirt again. He sold his Cyclocross bike, but couldn’t let go of these magnificent tires. Next thing you know, he’s bought this ANT just to have a bicycle to put the tires on…

Record Shops Supporting Bike Shops in Los Angeles

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!

This bike is rare, probably one of the rarest bikes to ever grace Golden Saddle Cyclery. It’s owner is one of our favorite customers to work with(a true lover of vintage mountain bikes), because of him we build some of the coolest bikes on the planet and this one is no exception.

This is 1 of 3 DIRT Research cyclocross bikes, these three bikes were built by the late Tom Teesdale, and when this frame/fork was brought to us it was NOS.

The pictures tell the story of the build, so I don’t need to talk about that really. The bike is a very period correct, fire-road crushing machine. But what really matters, is who it was built by. Mr. Teesdale was the ghost writer for a whole generation of American made mountain bikes. Tom recently passed away while doing the thing he loved, riding bikes.

T.E.T you’ll be missed.
