Audax Alpine Classic

This is phenomenal – it’s like a vignette into a miniature world. I love Australia!

“Earlier this year I worked with cycling club Audax Australia to capture a tilt-shift time-lapse of their event the Alpine Classic. Starting in the town of Bright 2,200 cyclists tackled several different courses of up to 250km which included ascents of Mount Buffalo, Mount Hotham, Falls Creek and Tawonga Gap. In my four days of shooting I covered nearly 2,000km through the Victorian High Country capturing cyclists, landscapes and the local towns.”

Teague x Sizemore Gets my Vote in the Bike Design Contest

Admittingly, I was first drawn to the Teague x Sizemore because of the overall frame design, but after really looking at all the details, I’m sold. While the handlebars might not be the most comfortable (looking), the lockbar combination is brilliant, as are the fenders. Those two details alone sold me on the design, because that’s what the Oregon Manifest has always been about: innovation.

The rest of the bikes have some clever details, like the Pensa + Horse Cycles expanding rack, but the Sizemore developed a few details that I could see catching on in the industry.

Seriously Taylor, you should send a set of those fenders to Bicycle Quarterly… Cast YOUR vote at the Bike Design Contest site and see some more details of the Teague x Sizemore design below.

Geoff McFetridge is the Best!

… and I’m stoked to be getting a bike designed by him this year. I first was introduced to Geoff’s work when I used to skateboard religiously, as I’m sure many of you did at one point. Who else had those McFetridge Vandals?

In the 90′s, when skateboarding and larger names like Nike began to look to artists to revitalize their brands, Geoff’s work inspired me. Even in my 30′s I still love seeing what he’s been up to.

Looking good dude and I love seeing race numbers hanging in studios like this.

K-Edge Garmin Mounts and Chain Catchers are Made in the USA

So, the other day, I’m thinking I need to buy a Garmin mount for my new Argonaut, but I didn’t want a plastic one. After seeing the K-Edge mounts all over, but having never owned one, I thought, what the hell, a balleur mount for a balleur bike.

This is a totally random post, but after spending some time at the K-Edge site, I really admire what they’re doing. Buying made in the USA – or any domestically-produced – accessory like this keeps an industry alive and keeps people employed. I’m ok with that.

Check out K-Edge‘s offerings at their site and ask your local bike shop to carry them!
