I’ve been waiting to post this graphic, designed by Poler’s CX team, who races on flat bar ‘cross bikes each season. It’s an obvious troll, but damn, that’s a great graphic but with all the flat bar ‘cross and all-road bikes, decked out with Eagle, it does make you wonder.

The Kora: A Two-Wheeled Pilgrimage of Purification

Joey Schusler’s latest film for Bike Mag is not to be missed!

“High in the Himalayan hinterlands of southwest China, three majestic mountains soar above sprawling floodplains that spill into the country’s sweltering lowlands. Over the centuries, various Dalai Lamas have ordained these towering peaks as sacred, and the Tibetan people who inhabit this isolated region revere them as granite gods. A pilgrimage around the base of these 19,000-foot-high giants is considered a holy undertaking, and those lucky enough to finish this arduous circuit—known as the ‘Yading Kora’—hope the effort will purify a lifetime of negative karma. Inspired by this time-honored rite of passage, three adventurers set out to complete this kora on mountain bikes, carrying everything they need to survive the 10-day mission themselves. ”

It’s great seeing the cycling community come together in time of need:

Now is your chance to own an amazing hand-built bike from well-renowned builder Bruce Gordon, and help fund fire relief at the same time. If you can’t bid, please consider donating, www.nvcf.org

This is being sold by Mark Norstad, owner of Paragon Machine Works. We’ve been building bike components for 35 years, and I’m now selling some of my personal bikes acquired over this time.”

Help Out Mitch from MAP Bicycles

MAP Bicycles is located in Paradise, California, a place that was decimated by the Camp Fire recently. Mitch builds MAP out of his home and in all likelihood lost it in the fire. As he was evacuating, embers were landing on his roof and his trees were ablaze. A lot of people have lost their homes in California this year from fires and this is a chance to help out a framebuilder and a cyclist. Head to GoFundMe to help out.

If you’d like to help more people, you can do so at the California Wildfire Relief Fund.

Bombtrack at the Navad 1000

“After traveling around the world by bicycle for almost four years, Jona from “Tales on Tyres” decided to take his passion to another level by signing up to his first self-supported bikepacking race across Switzerland, the Navad 1000. Although confident to be experienced enough to deal with the challenges of such a race, he soon finds himself tested beyond his own expectations and confronted with a question, he never had to ask himself before.”

Don’t miss our story from Lael Wilcox at the Navad 1000!

RuthWorks SF’s Ultralight Bags

RuthWorks is based in SF and the brand offers two product lines, classic and modern, with an ultralight and storm series line in the modern catalog. While the classic bags offer a timeless aesthetic with modern construction techniques for touring and randonneuring bikes, the rack-less functionality of these two ultralight bags look even more appealing. The Brevet bar bag and the Wedge saddle pack will fit on any drop bar or flat bar bike and offer just a bit more room for cramming fall riding apparel into.

If you like these designs, there is a pre-order for the new Storm Series editions featuring Xpac VX25 fabrics as well. Save over $20 per model! See all the full catalog at RuthWorks SF!
