Apologies for the lack of updates today, I was unable to spend any time online and spent the afternoon working on the story and photos from the weekend. All I’ll say right now is that I had a blast, even though our original plans got shortened a bit.
More to come, including a bunch of rad photos, a review of the AWOL and photos of Erik’s mad-peacock AWOL.
Leave it to Mash to put out a minute-long video that packs the stoke. Rainier is an exceptionally-strong rider and seeing him climb Fillmore Street like that is impressive!
This morning, the AWOL team and myself left San Francisco for a three day ride through Henry W. Coe state park down to Morgan Hill. While we have a general idea of how we’ll get down there (i.e. excessive speculation), we’re leaving a lot of room for error. Because, let’s face it, no big ride can go down without something going wrong. At least that’s my track record as of late.
I’ll be riding one of the new hydraulic disc, belt drive AWOL Transcontinental limited edition bikes and shooting photos of the ride for a few features on PiNP.
Come Monday, we’ll be showing my photos from the ride at the premier of the Transcontinental AWOL video at Specialized HQ.
Follow Hellhommus and me on Instagram this weekend for updates!
I’m so stoked for TCB Courier. They’ve landed some solid digs and business is good. Check out this video showcasing their new office!
Check it out as Chas from TCB Courier and Mash talks about his relationship with Giro and the $150 Republic Shoe.
California-based cycle wear company Ornot was recently at one of the Bay Area Super Prestige races and shot a great video recap. I love how orderly races like this appear, it’s like everyone has a place in queue as they race. Check out some photos from the event here.
One of my favorite bike dudes to hang with (and photograph) was recently interviewed over at Optimus Fixed.
“OF: I remember you as a relaxed and interested person with a modest atitude. So do you have any special philosophy in live?
My philosophy in life at its most simple is to do what makes you happy. Take whatever opportunity you have to travel, and further yourself as a human. I’m lucky enough to be able to go all over the world, with people that I love, and get together on a level that pushes us all to our physical limits.”
Check the rest out here!
Yes, just 20 km from their new digs in San Francisco, Erik and Sofia have found new stomping grounds for the Great Escape. Of course, you know, Erik’s got other things up his sleeve as well….

Man, I wish Maca would put out another video already! Seeing shots like this on their Tumblr makes me miss riding a track bike in SF.
Here’s a new video from Nabiis and Macaframa, featuring Fergus Liam!
