From Eddie Merckxy, down to Fausto ROBOCOPpi, John Maniquis’ mash-up of cycling and pop culture figures is so amazing. I wish I could be at his opening tomorrow night, as I’m sure all of you do.

For those of us who won’t be able to make it to SF, John was kind enough to send over the pieces… See the full show list from Hybrids: Illustrations by John Maniquis below!
I’ve been a long fan of Cadence for some time now. Over the years, they’ve been huge supporters of PiNP and The Radavist, so when the new Flow kits dropped, I wanted to do something special to commemorate them. I knew from Cadence’s Instagram that they had just ridden from SF to LA and TCB Courier‘s John Daniel Reiss was trucking along taking photos, so I reached out to them to do a Reportage on the trip… Below you’ll see the ride unfold.
Having had a bike stolen I’d prefer a little more vigilante justice… But I’m glad to see the SFPD doing something about it.
When I first saw the title of this, I thought they were riding their Leader frames from SF to San Diego on track bikes. They’re not, but it’s still a great video.
A little bit of Salem and a lil bit of freestyle (so rad Dylan!) with a whole lotta hill bombing. This is so sick Mash!
A good rigid MTB is a lot of fun, especially when it’s a Serotta. Check out more photos of Victor’s shred sled at Archive Bags and Shitbike.com!
I have always loved the concept of a Flèche, which is the French word for “arrow”. It’s a 24 hour straight rando ending in a city, which in this case, happens to be SF.
For more information on the 2014 Flèche put on by the SF Randonneurs, head over to Boyz on the Hoods.
Related note: I really want to ride Indians Road after watching this!
This Friday, May 2nd, Aaron from Stinner Frameworks will be at Mission Workshop from 7-10pm for a Q&A on frame building. Of course, there will be beer and bourbon.
Head over to Mission Workshop for details. If you do go to this event – you’d be crazy not to – do me a favor and give Stinner a high five. That dude is killing it.
Freight’s got their double leather straps in stock, along with single leather straps. These made in SF toe straps come in brown and black. Head over to Freight for more.
