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!
Tecolote Canyon Cross Camp “TCCC”
Photos and words by Matt Lingo
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…

Damn, Kyle, that is a great photo. See more of this stunning track bike at Trackosaurus Rex!
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!
The idea of “free” these days usually comes with a catch, yet when the Levi’s Commuter Workshops popped up in Brooklyn, LA and London, free really does mean free. A free desk to work at, free bike repair / wash areas, free coffee, free wifi and yes, free tailoring. So what’s the catch? No, really, there isn’t one.
The 2014 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup
Words and photos by Chris Lee
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…

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.
Well, we’re here in Los Angeles, after four days of pedal to the metal driving down Highway 1 from Portland to Los Angeles. The Pacific Coast Highway is one of the nation’s most popular bicycle touring routes and unfortunately, that also means it’s one of the most popular RV / Camper / no-clue how to drive windy road tourist destinations.
Ok. Seriously. Now it’s a vacation. Nothing against hanging in cities but it’s damn stressful trying to get around and see all your best buddies. Well, a different kind of stress, especially when compared to driving with the windows down and music blasting down some rad gravel road with no one in sight. That’s stressful.
Lauren and I spent the day on a route I planned out to take us from Portland to the 101, without getting on any major highways. It ruled. Then, a wreck happened on the 101 and we had to take a 50 mile detour. That didn’t rule. Getting to eat at the Local Ocean in Newport, Oregon made up for it though.
I didn’t shoot a lot of digital today, because I’m shooting medium format, but I did get a little trigger happy at a nice little beach spot before we called it a night.
