Pat Cummins is a big sweetheart. The ex-MMA fighter is a lover of singlespeeds and mountains. I shot some photos for Outside Magazine of him a few years back on his rigid Niner.

Readers’ Rides aren’t meant to be all 26″ wheeled basket bikes and there’s nothing wrong with that. Part of the joy we get from running this segment is the home-made, garage-cooked creations. Take this submission for example. Nick couldn’t fit on any production frames so he built his own frame.

Wow. We’ve featured the work of the cycling industry’s crystal ball-gazing, doodle extraordinaire before but oddly enough, none of his other cycle-inventions felt as practical as this project does… Read on below for the full scoop on this creation from the mind of Bicycle Pubes with words by Dr. Pubey himself.

During the pandemic, bike shops have seen a surge in business, and with this growing popularity of two-wheeled machines, we’re stoked to see non-profits benefiting from the bicycle boom. Mitchell and Matt recently opened Two Bikes, a non-profit in Knoxville, TN. For this week’s Readers’ Rides, we take a look at Mitchell’s Rivendell Hunqapillar, with an interesting backstory…
