Tim and Sean are back for Episode two of Mavic’s Tour de France coverage…
This is one of the most beautifully-shot and visually compelling cycling videos I’ve seen. There are so many wonderful shots including Tracy‘s Leica M240 selfie and that amazing Starling Flock as the riders descend at sunset. Here’s the description from Machines for Freedom:
“None of this is free. But that’s what makes the payoff so sweet.
Anyone who has ever stuck with a training plan to prepare for a new challenge knows this. Anyone who has pedaled through a cold winter to reach new distances come spring knows this. Chances are if you’ve ever ridden a trainer indoors, you might have felt yourself banging up against that wall and asking yourself, why?
“Free,” the new film from Machines sets out to capture the inner dialogue of the rider who has found themselves at this crossroads and come out the other side with a reason… something to hold on to when those questions start to bubble up within.” (more…)
Here’s to all the #DadBike families out there. Hopefully more households hold true to the values in this video.
… and we’ve got an exclusive look at it, coming August 2nd.
Check out this video for a good intro to Push Industries’ latest product, the ACS-3, a drop-in hybrid coil/air spring kit for Fox 36s and RockShox Pikes. The kit will allow riders to remove their existing air shock and replace it with PUSH’s ACS-3 system. The ACS-3 (fancy marketing name for “advanced coil system”) mates a proprietary coil spring with a pneumatic bump-stop that allows riders to fine-tune the lower third of travel. So, while it’s hyper-sensitive for small bumps, it still ramps up the way it should at the end of its travel, rather than harshly bottoming out. Interested in this? Check out more at Push Industries.
Girona is a veritable pro cyclist playground. Mike Cotty from the Col Collective takes on the iconic climbs of of Els Angles and Santa Pellaia alongside Dan Craven.
Brandon Semenuk is a master at slopestyle and to anyone who disagrees, just watch this!
I just love these videos from Paul, but I want to see Travis do one on his Paul Component Hite Rite!
Just wait for what we’ve got in store for you next week. In the meantime, check out this profile on Squid that SRAM pulled together.
