Ride Along: Hans and His Rock Lobster Cross
Ride Along: Hans and His Rock Lobster

Hans lives in Los Angeles and last year his wife bought him a Rock Lobster cross bike with a few added braze-ons. Hans and I spoke a lot about brake and tire options and it seems like he’s finally got his setup dialed in. One morning, as we were finishing up a MTB ride on Brown in LA, Hans went rolling by on his bike. I yelled “HANSSSSSSSS!” and he came scooting by, so I shot some photos with my Mamiya 7ii and earlier this week, I finally got them developed, prompting me to interview him with a few simple questions. Check them out below!

Things Fall Apart
Things Fall Apart-2

Sometimes, your wheels get dented or damaged beyond repair. That happened to Kyle while we were riding in Los Angeles back in January on his Stinner Mudfoot cross bike. I liked the way these three photos turned out from the aftermath.

Team Dream Rizzle Dizzle Men’s and Women’s Kits
Team Dream Rizzle Dizzle Women's Kit

As a consumer, I like to know the ways and means a company (especially in the cycling industry) came out. Regardless as to what my relationship is to Sean Talkington of Team Dream Bicycling Team, there was something about what he started doing last year that piqued my interest.

So, it’s a team, but it’s not a team. It’s a team for people who aren’t on teams, which makes it arguably one of the biggest teams in the world. That’s kind of like a dream team, right? Something like that.

When Sean began working on his Rizzle Dizzle kits, and his Mondrian Homage vest, we wanted to do a little something more than just post photos and send people over to his store. Below is a backstory, or a history as to what inspires Sean to continuously push Team Dream’s product line.

Rubber Side Up 01
RubberSideUp!

Photo by Sean Talkington

People ask me, “what does rubber side up mean?” – it means, you’ve gotta fall, or at least come close to it, to learn how to control your bike. Sometimes, that means looping out from a wheelie, or cooking a corner well done…

Such a good photo Sean!

Dirty Hundo Video

When I found out that I couldn’t make it to the Mudfoot Dirty Hundo, I asked Kyle and Ace if they’d be willing to document the event. Sure enough, they pulled through in a big way. Both with a video and with a killer ride report which I’ll be posting later today.

For now, check out this awesome video Ace edited of he and Kyle’s footage from the ride.
