… for bringing three friends even closer together. I didn’t have wifi all week at my hotel, so posting will commence tomorrow morning. Let’s just say, we had a blast!
The newest from Chrome features one of my favorite photographers in cycling, Chris Milliman:
“Chris Milliman has been taking pictures since he was a kid. He’s been riding a bike a little bit longer. Chris is lucky enough to do both for a living. He’s captured some of the most epic cycling moments around the world. From Cyclocross Nationals, to the Tour de France, to the streets of NYC and Chicago, Chris captures the essence of cycling in every shot he takes.
This season’s Limited Edition Artist Series features four of Chris’ iconic photographs: A local cyclocross race around an old castle in Belgium, the iconic industrial bridge structures overlooking the bike lanes of Chicago, a locals only watering hole of the same windy city, and the organized chaos of a bike shop. The inside of each bag includes an exclusive woven patch that references old school photo processing.
The Chrome Artist Series celebrates photographers, graphic designers, screen printers, and painters who inspire us. These collaborations are built in limited quantities and once they’re gone, they’re gone.
The four Milliman Artist Photo Citizens include:
Zonnebeke (brwn/red), Chicago Steel (brnw/yellow), Locals Only (brwn/green), and Shop Rat (brwn/blue)“

Each year, I try to share the wealth of savings of Black Friday sales. As always, support your local bike shop first and foremost. Local businesses thrive on holiday sales. In fact, many businesses make enough money during the holidays to help them stay open year round. SO SHOP LOCAL!
Now to completely contradict all that, here are a few online sales and events happening on Black Friday. If you’re throwing a race, post it up in the comments and I’ll add it to the post. Just make sure the flier is at least 655 pixels wide!
One of the raddest things that Texas Toast brought about were all the team road trips but I don’t think anyone documented their travels as well as the FBM family. Check out part one of their Road Trip to Texas video above and part two below! For more photos, hit up Crandall’s Least Most Blog.
There’s nothing better than drinking from the Earth after a mean Cat 2 climb in 90+ degree weather. Last weekend, a big group of us did the Geyserville loop and after the initial descent, there was a water trough filled with ice cold spring water. I took my Hasselblad out of the videographer’s car and snapped a few shots of my Geekhouse resting on this oasis.
Jakob Santos is has embarked on the Fixed America tour. Over the next few weeks, he’ll be hitting the above cities. Follow him on Instagram for daily updates.
Carrying around the Hasselblad all day is not exactly fun but when I get a few rolls back, from various Shop Visits, it’s all worth while. These photos are from recent spaces and faces, some of which you’ll recognize, others you wont.

I was very, very surprised and saddened to see this on my RSS this morning, first thing. Woof Jakarta has decided to shut down the blog. I’ll still be watching it though, in hopes it will pop back up.
