This is a long one, but is worth the listen, so let it play and enjoy!
I can watch videos like this all day… remote roadscapes, nature and bikes. Damn.
It’s hard to beat the Swiss Alps!
“After crossing the French Alps non-stop last summer, Mavic ambassador Mike Cotty prepares to take on his longest and toughest journey to date, a 1000km traverse of the Dolomites, Eastern Alps and Swiss Alps featuring 21 mountains and 23,000 metres of elevation. Watch how Mike and his team get ready as they embark on an adventure of new and unknown limits. The Road to Mont Blanc – coming August 2014.”
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.”
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.
In an age where everyone wants to capture everything on their iPad, iPod, iPhone and GoPro, it’s easy to see why the pro cyclists of this year’s Tour were a bit disgruntled with all the selfie and video-hungry fans. Then again, it’s pretty rad that Kevin Reza actually picked up this Contour Roam and took it for a spin!
One of the world’s most infamous alleycats gets some love from some of Mexico City’s bike messengers in this trailer for a forthcoming full-length feature.
That light grey Harrow build looks great, especially with the SRAM CX-1 group but I want to see more from Foundry‘s mountain lineup.
