Lux Noctis is a photo series by photographer and director Reuben Wu. He documents some of the Southwest’s most outstanding geological formations by using drones to light these alien forms and shooting them with a 100-megapixel Phase One system. Reuben’s Instagram is one of my favorites and seeing his process, step by step is enlightening. As someone who loves geology and photography, I had to share this with you.
A living legend heads to the wind tunnel to test out his UCI-banned riding positions from the early days of his career.
One of the projects I’ve been urging Mission Workshop to take on, since the brand’s inception I might add, is the same thing all photographers want; a smart, simple, and modular camera carrying system. Mission’s responded with the Capsule, a padded and modular insert that works with most of its current bags and on its own. These bags are designed to carry a number of bodies and lenses, are made in the USA and in stock now at Mission Workshop.
Having just spent the past three days hanging out, camping with, riding bikes alongside and shooting photos of Jeff Kendall-Weed, I can honestly say I have an even greater appreciation for this dude’s hustle and flow. In his latest Youtube edit, he takes off to Bear Mountain in British Columbia with fellow shredder Jordan Boostmaster.

New bikes often launch with a video, and this one’s great! Join Sam Schultz and his pup Pancho as they travel from Missoula to Arizona for a winter escape with the new Rocky Mountain Solo.
The Solo has been a drop bar bike in Rocky Mountain’s lineup for years, and the most recent version is slanted toward dirt roads and getting shreddy with clearance for 700×40 or 27.5×2.2″ tires, dropper post routing, a 1x-specific frame, and a carbon fork with anything cage mounts. Morgan just got one in for review, so you can drop any questions for him in the comments.
Hit the jump for a few more photos, and get all the details on the new Solo at Rocky Mountain.

I’d like to think we’re on top of all things “all road” over here, but clearly we miss things from time to time. The other day, I was talking to someone about Lauf’s designs and they mentioned the new True Grit carbon all road frameset. My interest was piqued because I find Lauf’s designs intriguing in that everything they’ve designed over the years has been truly innovative in a largely copycat world. See more at Lauf.
