Last Sunday, Dillen’s wife Jenn reached out to John with some unfortunate news. A UTV had hit Dillen near their home in Valdez, NM. Shortly after, the Sheriff’s department got involved and quickly ruled out the hit and run, stating Dillen had chopped his foot off with a chainsaw… Yet a lot didn’t add up. While Dillen and Jenn grapple with the new reality of Dillen losing his foot, they’re coping with horrible debt from Dillen’s Medivac helicopter trip to UNM’s hospital on Sunday. He has insurance, but we all know that doesn’t mean you’ll leave incidents like this sans debt.
Jenn is doing a wonderful job updating everyone on their status while addressing the apparent police corruption of both the Taos News and the Taos Sheriffs Dept, so even if you don’t want to donate, we highly suggest you read what’s going on at their GoFundMe.
Sending our love to Dillen.

No 22 Couplers $1,250 including the hydraulic Brake Break
If you do a lot of traveling with your bike, chances are you’ve dreamed of a bike with couplers. The appeal of taking your full-size bike and packing it safely into a standard checked luggage bag is obvious: no more eye-watering airline fees, easier travel to and from the airport, and no need to store a huge bike case at home when not traveling. However, existing coupler systems have some key shortcomings. They’re bulky, heavy, and some require special tools when packing and unpacking the bikes. Some weren’t designed with internal ports large enough to accommodate internal cable routing. Finally, for bikes with hydraulic brakes, there was no easy way to separate the rear brake from the front of the bike for travel.
Over at No 22, they’ve always dreamed of a better coupler solution, and after an extended development period, they’re excited to finally have one. The No22 Coupler bikes rely on two key innovations: our bespoke low-profile frame couplers, and our “Brake Break” hydraulic coupler for brake hoses.

If you live in a city with easy-to-access singletrack or bike paths, a bike like the Hudski Doggler could very well be the ultimate commuter bike. These bikes are essentially rigid mountain bikes, designed to be an ideal all-rounder. Be it S24O, full on tours, or just jammin’ trails en route to the office, the Doggler has many tricks up its sleeve like big tires, a dropper post, and a killer coat of paint. See more at The Pro’s Closet. At this price, it won’t last long!

With the heat wave enveloping the Western US, many people are hanging out indoors, rather than riding. Josh’s work in Idaho inspired Lindsay to draw this image while he was holed up in his home…
