The Jungle

Allright folks, it’s Friday, it’s winter, it’s raining all day, every day. Not the best time of the year for us day to day bike freaks. It’s a steady routine of getting wet, having the wind freeze your cheeks, fixing flats with icy hands and getting wet over and over and over again. In fact, ...

The Tie That Binds

January has already passed and like every year, it takes me a good month of adjusting to the new years vibe. Basically it’s same shit, different day mode except everyone is going bananas over this year being the hottest shit. Like, ever. Whether it’s announcing the drop of your new record you spent 2 years ...

Obsolete

Does anyone remember the Futurama episode where Bender gets a downgrade? There’s a new robot on the market and the old models are supposed to get an upgrade to be compatible with the latest robo shit but Bender gets scared and flees to an island where he meets a bunch of old, obsolete robots that ...

Critical Hit

Competitive comparison seems to be a worldwide phenomenon amongst people in general. No matter what age, surroundings, financial circumstances. Who’s got the freshest kicks? Whose smartphone cam can record more fps? Who can down his beer the fastest? Who’s getting the pole position on the next red light when commuting to work? Who is the ...

Purity

We’re living in a time where people are searching for something ‘real’, something natural, something ‘pure’ because from our clothes to¬†our food, our relationships, our jobs, our news and our communication, a hell of a lot of things are watered down and packed up in so much plastic it’s hard to breathe freely sometimes. But ...

D.I.Why

Thanks to seasonal circumstances like falling leaves and a buttload of rain we’re forced to either switch from ‘lightweight slim tires summertime ride’ to something sturdy and reliable or face the fact that quite some time will be spent on cleaning, maintaining and fixing our beloved bikes. Or not. But you know where that ends. ...

Attitude

Monday. A day like any other basically but if you’re caught in modern day living Monday can be a drag. You might still be recovering from the weekend, the rest of the world is in grumpy Monday mood and most of us attend work rather unwillingly. Forcing your body outside while your brain is still ...

Oldschool And Then Some

Let’s step into some vintage rambling. As in vintage bikes. Vintage Italian or Japanese steel frames for example. They trigger a whole bunch of nasty feelings in the vintage aficionado. Drooling over lug details, chromed chain and seat stays or the perfection of japanese rainbow flake paint jobs is something that might seem strange and ...

Lightspeed

Traveling rules. Exploring new places or revisiting old spots you haven’t been to for years, meeting new people and catching up with old friends, all garnished by sunny weather and hopefully a bike – I believe we can all agree on the dopeness of that. There’s an external and internal voyage so to speak, especially ...

Sea

Holiday season is in full effect and while one of the best ways to spend the summer is to cycle the world, there are about a million other things worth doing that barely involve bikes. Like hiking or climbing hills or exploring hard to reach countrysides which could not be reached by bike, even them ...
