Rivendell: A. Homer Hilsen Frames are in Stock

While the rest of the industry calls them gravel bikes, Rivendell likes to call their bridge between road and mountain bikes, “country bikes.” That’s the realm where the A. Homer Hilsen resides. They can fit a 44mm tire, although the chaps at Rivendell usually ride a 40mm tire with theirs, and can be used for anything from a sub-24-hour overnighter, to a brevet, or just dirt road riding. They’re $1,500 for a frameset and in stock now. Check out more details at Rivendell.

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. ”

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.
