LOOK’s Geo-Trekking Pedals Offer More Visibility While Riding at Night

Visibility is crucial when undertaking ultra-endurance racing, or just riding at night and commuting through urban environments. With winter on the way and shorter days to follow, many riders will be taking on their favorite routes under the veil of darkness. LOOK‘s new Geo-Trekking pedals look to make visible waves, providing unprecedented visibility with a revolutionary new lighting system.

The Geo-Trekking pedals use LED Vision lights, similar to pedals that use reflectors. These LEDs have 15 lumens each, making the rider visible at a distance of more than 400 meters as well as at a 180° angle, adding sidewards visibility at road junctions. If you run them in Flash Eco mode, the lights boast an operational run time of 30 hours, and feature an indicator light that warns when battery life falls to critical levels. They are USB-rechargeable via a supplied micro-USB cable, with a fast 50-minute recharge time.

Could these pedals make vehicular incidents less frequent? Who knows, but every little bit helps. Check out more information below.

Zipp Speed Weaponry: Chris’ Mondrian LOOK


Photos by Joe Vondersaar

Look, ok, I didn’t mean to use a pun here, but seriously, look at that bike. I’ve known Chris for years. Probably close to ten if my math is right and in that time, his interest in cycling has grown from track bikes on the street, to road bikes, mountain bikes (which didn’t go so well for him), cross bikes and eventually back to track bikes. This time on the velodrome. The last time I saw Chris, he was working for Mellow Johnny’s in Austin before moving to Indy after accepting a job at SRAM / Zipp. That was almost two years ago, so I was stoked to see this bike pop up on Zipp’s website. Mondrian fans will be equally as stoked!

Have a look (dammit) at more of Joe’s photos of Chris’ bike below, or mosey on over to Zipp’s blog for the full breakdown.

Garrett’s Cinelli XCR Road with Campy Record 11

The Cinelli XCR embodies the ideologies representing the brand’s history of making performance steel racing bicycles. Much like the modern big brother to the Supercorsa, the XCR is made in Italy, individually, by hand.

It just so happens that every one of these frames is made to order. Custom if you will, because each frame is welded after an order is placed, which, to me, is pretty rad.

For people like Garrett Chow, the man responsible for many of MASH’s designs, the XCR was exactly what he was looking for after riding strictly carbon for years. He wanted some compliance with a livelier stride…

When the crew at Cinelli / Columbus offered to build him a bike, he gladly obliged and requested a white paint job with Mash insignia added in. Garrett spared no expense on the bike, building with with Campagnolo Record 11, 3T and Fulcrum Racing Lite XLR race wheels. Basically, everything on this bike is made in Italy, minus the Chris King headset and LOOK pedals.

I shoot a lot of nice bicycles, but this one made me nervous as we propped it up on the side of Diablo… See more in the Gallery and thanks to Garrett for thinking of me when it came to shooting this bike!
