Distance Over Time

I’m stoked to see this as a Vimeo pick!

“Distance Over Time follows the truly inspirational story of James Golding, a man who has beaten incredible odds to achieve extraordinary things. From weighing 6 stone and being too weak to walk 5 years ago to taking on one of the most savage cycling records ever undertaken, Spindle Productions followed James’ remarkable journey.”

Deux North Hunt 4 Video

Here’s the full length to Deux North’s latest Hunt video:

“Riding up the coast of California from Santa Cruz, Deux North’s 8 riders test a new bike built for every kind of road. After 2 days and 200 miles, the group meets the story’s narrator, El Chapulin (The Grasshopper) to listen to his story, tell their own, and compete in an event that he created over 15 years ago. On the final day. the 100-mile Grasshopper Adventure Series race serves as the finish line for Deux North’s Hunt 4. #SeekandDiverge”

Don’t miss Andy Bokanev’s photos from this fun looking ride.

This is, without a doubt, the best Eddy Merckx Professional restoration I’ve ever seen. Andy really took this job above and beyond, both in final build and historical documentation. Head over to FYXO for this insane Professional photoset!

For reference, see the catalog photo below.

Andy’s Concorde Squadra PDM Road with Campagnolo
Andy's Concorde Squadra Road with Campagnolo

Andy White of FYXO has a pretty decent bicycle collection, ranging from some Australian pedigree, to classic Italian, carbon madness and bikes like this immaculate Concorde Squadra with a mix of Campagnolo.

Most of Andy’s bikes are obvious choices but this one stood out as being a bit different…

So I asked him why, out of all the bikes on this Earth, did he spend so much time building up a Concorde Squadra PDM? Nothing against these frames, they’re immaculate! His answer “Because I wanted to do Concorde PDM FYXO bidons.”

That’s dedication to the cause…

Dayne’s Llewellyn 531 Road with Suntour Superbe Pro
Dayne's Llewellyn 531 Road with Suntour

Llewellyn is one of Australia’s best kept, not-so secrets. Those who know, know, leaving the rest of the world coveting frames from Eisentraut (1959), Moulton (1957), Weigle (1977), Sachs (1975), etc.

Granted, Llewellyn has only been building since 1979, and the others, as stated above, have been around only slightly longer. Darrell Llewellyn makes steel bikes and steel bikes alone. He’s built for numerous Australian national athletes, was an Olympic mechanic and had a hand in the early days of NAHBS.
