Well, he’s not selling it himself and it’s not your everyday bike. This one’s dripping with Campagnolo Pista. The price is $1,100 complete, as shown on Tracko’s Flickr. Head over to Tracko to see more details.
This past weekend, some buddies and I went on a little camping trip. Some of us had to be back in town the following day, while others went on through Monday. The lucky bastards… One of the early returnees, along with me, was Jonathan. It was his first camping trip here in Austin, since recently relocating from Omaha, so we wanted it to be a good one.
There’s more to come on the ride itself (oh and it was a good one), but I thought I’d take a minute to feature his rather unique Surly Disc Trucker…
Golden Saddle Rides: Haunted Hollows Stinner Off-Roadie
Photos and words by Kyle Kelley
I guess this bike would be a little more Halloweeny if it was black and orange, but what the HELL, it’s not!
Stinner Frameworks provided the skeleton, and we installed the costume.
Matt, the owner of this bike knew exactly what he wanted. A no nonsense road bike that could take large enough tires to really get dirty. The Velo Orange Grand Cru brakes are what made his decision to go standard caliber, over a cantilever or Mini-Moto style brake. Besides the Chris King bits, the bike is outfitted with a full Ultegra kit. The ENVE bar and seatpost are keeping Matt comfy on long dirty rides. Be it road or dirt the bike is always outfitted with some skin walls, duh.
Mash has one of the most comprehensive photo galleries I’ve seen from this year’s Red Hook Crit Milano. The photos are spectacular. Head over to Mash to catch them all…
… doesn’t contain this photo – at least I don’t think it does – but it does offer an intimate and eery look at the streets of Portland. He’s got a Kickstarter going right now for Smell the [City of] Roses book. I always love a good photography book, especially from someone as talented as Damian. Even if you don’t want to contribute to the Kickstarter, have a look through his Flickr. I suppose you could flip through those like a book…
Santa Cruz to Big Basin Overnighter
Words and photos by Brian Barnhart
I agreed to this trip before I knew where we were going or what we were doing. I recently moved to Santa Cruz from the east coast and take any chance I get to explore the area with friends. I’m primarily a BMX rider / commuter who does the occasional tour, as is my friend Mike who invited me on the trip. Our friend Chris, on the other hand, rides trails every morning and gets a kick out climbing a long steep hill. Finding out on Friday night that we were about to climb 6000 plus feet was a bit painful sounding, but we were up for the adventure.
KVLT in Göteborg: the 2014 Svart Katt
Words and photos by Johan Björklund
Svart Katt is an alley cat race through the darkest corners of Göteborg where the riders look for as many checkpoints and solve questions scavenger hunt style with the help of a map and a manifest during the cold and dark night. You could say it’s a sightseeing tour in the twilight zone.
There’s been big changes going on at Stinner Frameworks HQ. For one, Aaron moved shop out of his garage and into a brand new workshop and yesterday, Stinner Frameworks welcomed their newest shop hand to the family, Chris Ellefson aka Mini Bear.
Read all about it at the Stinner blog. As eluded to previously, I can’t wait for my new Stinner cross!
This Wednesday, the guys from Limberlost are doing an old fashioned slideshow from their Idaho trip at Velo Cult in Portland. If you can’t make that, you can always turn off the lights, crack a beer and flip through Gabe’s gallery here on the Radavist, but that won’t be nearly as fun!

I can’t begin to fathom weather like this, as it’s still 90 degrees here in Austin, but then again, we don’t have giants like Mt. Baker in our backyard and we’re pretty damn far south. Photos like these, taken just this weekend, serve as reminders of how truly powerful mother nature is.
Andy and Kelly decided to try to make it as far up Highway 542 as they could, not realizing it’d be literally under feet of snow. Even that couldn’t keep them from the Mountains of Madness…
