Springs A Comin

Alright folks, spring has finally arrived. Everybody pull out your rides and go nuts. Seriously, I feel that spring’s the time of the year when everyone really does freak out and they all pull out their whackiest rides ever. Not a day goes by I don’t see at least half a dozen tragically funny bikes that ...

Diggin

We at DISRIDEHERE love Italian classics. And Japanese but that’s a whole different story. Unfortunately Italian classic road bikes are few and far between around here. You will see a million matt black fixed gears before you spot one decent Italian road or track bike, it’s like hunting a ghost sometimes. So a couple of ...

Right On

Spring is approaching with huge steps so it’s that time of the year when the amount of people on bikes quadruples and we’re confronted with all sorts of old and new cycling trends. The ambitioned roadie is pulling out his carbon wheelset, the everyday commuter gets his bike properly checked after a hard winter, singlespeed ...

Hercules

Sometimes I wonder how my personal bike game is perceived by others. Or if it’s perceived at all, because most of the times I probably look like an average guy, riding a semi-fancy steel frame to get my way around town. No shinyness or glamour included, at least not on an everyday cold season basis. ...

Bike Esteem

A couple of days ago I was reminded of a time in my life when I only had one bycicle. I rode my bike through my years in school and although I only had that one bike, I wasn’t really keen on proper maintenance. I basically wore it down to no longer ridable and beyond ...

Sissy

I consider myself a fan of funny urban bike pimpin. At least most of the time. And I don’t mean the ‘funny colorway fixed gear thing‘ nor the ‘spend a fortune to buy stupid and ugly gimmicks to make me look witty’ thing either. That simply bores the shit out of me. I mean the ...

Cycloboss

Modern day cycling has come a long way. In fact, sometimes it seems to have come so far that people almost seem to forget when and why it all started. As a means of transportation, as in getting from here to there in a fast, uncomplicated and sometimes joyful way. Then again, takin a brief ...

Distractions

Overcoming New Year’s somewhat hungover if not depressing vibes can be quickly and successfully done by simply shopping your ass off and spending all your hardly earned Christmas cash in the first couple of days of the year. I’m not gonna give you a list such as ‘The top 10 things a bike nerd can buy in ...

Hey Ladies

Usually I try to keep away from making gender specific statements, not that I think there wasn’t much to be said about the difference between men and women, in fact I believe this would probably be the longest book ever written, but anyway… A friend of mine who’s a skilled bike mechanic and great observer ...

Hangover

Hangover is a bitch. Especially on New Year’s Day. Having just survived Christmas hangover and struggling through the first couple of days of January, I really don’t pay too much attention to cycling. Sure, somewhere in the far back of my mind a cracking voice tells me: ‘Get your ass up and start your roller ...
