Golden Saddle Rides: Jack Brown-Equipped ANT Townie
Golden Saddle Rides: Jack Brown-Equipped ANT Townie

Photos and words by Kyle Kelley

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…

Putting That Yonder Journal Corndoggin’ Shirt to Use
Falls_Kauai-1

Look, I know you signed up for a “bike blog” when you clicked on this link today, but the truth is, everyone needs a break from the constant rotation of crank arms, even me.

Yesterday, Lauren and I descended a web of slippery, muddy, roots to a waterfall in Kauai and then the sun broke out. Back track a bit…

After sleeping in a tent on the beach during the pouring rain and spotty rain all day, I knew it’d be a wash today at the falls, so when the sun broke out, I grabbed whatever I had laying around and ran out the door.

Afterwards, I realized the sunblock-scented shirt I picked off the bathroom floor was the Yonder Journal Corndoggin’ shirt and I couldn’t think of a better tee to be wearing.

Anyway, thanks for the patience, I’m a week from being home, with my bikes and my other camera equipment. Now, get out and enjoy the summer!

Manual for Speed: Chillering – the Art and Science of Napping & Reading
manualforspeed_mfsm_chillerism-1

Manual for Speed is at the US Pro Challenge in Colorado and they’re already making a splash with Team Garmin-Sharp’s Alex Howes and Phil Gaimon, as they invent yet another word: “Chillering”.

Find out what chillering is at Manual for Speed.

For the record, I am not at the US Pro Challenge. If you see someone that looks like me, with a camera, it is Manual for Speed, not me. Don’t be the 60th person who mistakes Daniel for me!

Having someone like Josh Hayes around your office is a valuable asset. With all the logistics, red tape, and TPS reports that can seem to work against getting shit done, sometimes you just need someone to call a situation out for what it is, and then promptly return to their computer to blast Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”.

The Misery of the Hardcore 24
Photos and words by Dan Chabanov

It’s rare that I get a boring text from Dan Timmerman. When he asked me if I would be interested in a 24 hour mountain bike race I figured he was mostly joking and not really expecting me to be interested in that sort of thing. He later admitted this to be true. Although I have to admit that Dan’s assessment of my level of interest was probably correct normally. I guess he just caught me on a weird day and so we started working out the details…

Team Dream Sunset-Chasing Team
Crew!

These are totally random, but too good to just let sit on my hoard drive…

Sean from Team Dream Team has a really rad VW bus that has been in his possession since he was just a bobcat cub. Well, truthfully, he’s shared this bus with a buddy of his since the early 90′s. On our last night in Los Angeles – adios! – Sean took Lauren, Kyle, Liz and myself on a ride up one of the many canyons in Malibu where he lives.

It was awesome and the perfect way to end a road trip. Now, for some much-needed time on the bike!

I’m not gonna lie, I’m not very well versed or informed about the mountain bike racing circuit. But I do know about the MTB World Cup and when the announcement that it was going to be making a stop in Windham again, I knew I had to make the trip up…

FYXO: Inside Pelizolli’s World
pelizolli-5

Photo by Andy White

Back in 2011, Andy from FYXO got to visit the workshop of Giovanni Pelizzoli, founder of Ciöcc and torch-bearer of the Pelizzoli brand. In an era when Ciöcc has forgotten its steel days, Giovanni continues to craft beautiful steel frames in the spirit of Italy’s golden era.

Andy did a great job documenting the space and faces inside Pelizzoli, so head over to FYXO for the full photoset.
