Jan and crew at Rene Herse are raising money for Turkey and Syria with a fundraiser:
“Today and tomorrow (Thursday and Friday, Feb. 9-10, 2023), we are donating the entire cost of Bicycle Quarterly subscriptions and renewals to help victims of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria. We’ve all been shocked and saddened by the terrible news and the incredible suffering.”
Roll on over to Rene Herse to see more and to read about why Jan is so drawn to the region.
Juno was originally designed as a race bike before it evolved into a rig capable of taking on gravel, double track, and paved roads. Juno is capable of 40c tires with 50mm mudguards. The geometry of the Juno is more upright than a traditional road bike, which enables you to spend long days in the saddle.
The Hubble hits the sweet spot of modern trail geometry early on, making it capable of everything from shredding downhill to touring in the backcountry. It is optimized for either 27.5″ wheels with 2.8″ tires or a 29″ with up to 2.4″ wide rubber – both options with the proper clearance for knobs or mud. Run the Hubble with a 120mm suspension to hit a 66.6º head angle. You can also run it with a rigid fork or overfork it with a 150mm fork.
See the two models in detail at Stribe.
Throw your leg around a 90s mountain bike and you’ll quickly be dropped into an aggressive racing riding position. Magic Components has an option to overcome that with its Worm Bars, available in black or silver, in a popular 25.4mm clamp spec, and a lot of rise. These bars will get you in a more upright riding position, the way a commuter-converted vintage mountain bike should be ridden.

While we love the Forager Cycles Cable Cherries, it’s nice to see more companies be mindful of unnecessary waste. Yokozuna just announced a new, non-crimp cable end that slides over a bare cable and then a threaded end twists over, locking the cable ends in place and creating a secure union. These are cheap, at $7.95 each, and come in a variety of colors for brake or shifter cables. Order from your local dealers and see more at Yokozuna.
