… for bringing three friends even closer together. I didn’t have wifi all week at my hotel, so posting will commence tomorrow morning. Let’s just say, we had a blast!
I’ve seen some of the photos that Dan Barham shot during the Mission Workshop ACRE photo shoots in the Alps and they are amazing. If you’re going to Interbike, make sure you swing through the photo show party, WANDER:
“In WANDER, Dan Barham captures a few of Europe’s best mountain trails on film. The tour was designed to test the upcoming Acre line of weatherproof trail packs and apparel fit for riding. At Interbike (Booth #4137) we will be launching both Dan’s photo journal and the new Acre line. Stay tuned for all the details on the MW Blog: http://missionworkshop.
The Vegas Drag Race!
All-City is throwing a Bandit Cross in Vegas on Tuesday, before the main show. Check out more details here.
Today, the Urban Cycling Hall Of Fame (UCHOF) was launched in conjunction with Echos CommunicationsChrome Industries. The purpose of the UCHOF is to spotlight the rich culture and history of urban riding. How is the UCHOF planning on doing so?
Check out more information below!
As I was backing up my photos from Interbike, I realized I never posted these. It’s a few photos I shot of Jason Clary’s new LOW track bike. He’s had the frame for a while but it’s good to see it built up. I’ve always liked the crazy custom paint and finishing schemes Andrew comes up with and this bike is no different.

I don’t usually post the same thing twice but Damian’s photo of that Pegoretti Custom Fizik is too good to pass up. Shot with TMY 400 pushed to 1600 ISO, during processing, making this shot actually possible handheld. See two more great shots at his Flickr and if you don’t already follow Damian on Tumblr, do so!
Cross Vegas. One night during Interbike where the industry and UCI come together for a night of boozin’ and racin’. This year’s heats were bigger, faster and more beer’er than ever. How about less talk, more photos?
This year, Mission Workshop opted out of the expense of undertaking Interbike. Instead, they brought their new products with them to the show floor. For Fall / Winter 2012, they’re introducing two new jackets, the Trigger and the Torre. First off, the Trigger is MW’s take on the cycling centric, urban riding jacket. It’s a more dedicated cycling fit than the Orion but is still comfortable as a fashion piece off the bike. It’s Shoeller WB-400 fabric has 4-way stretch, is windproof and highly water resistant. The Trigger ships October 15th and will retail at $285.
Next up is the Torre, or the classic merino hoody. The material is a proprietary 18.9 micron New Zealand Merino Wool with added stretch to increase mobility and flexibility while riding. Thumb holes, added zips, vents and a rear pocket are a few details that make the Torre one of the most practical cycling hoodies. The Torre ships November 1st and will retail at $235.
Expect more information at Mission Workshop shortly.
This year, I had hopes of having three galleries from Interbike’s showcase but alas, two will have to do. Within this gallery, you’ll find everything from balleur track bikes to pretty faces and I even added subtitles to the photos to direct you to the corresponding companies. How’s that for luxury. Beat Monday morning at the office over the head with this…
