Forty-Five

It’s July 2015 and once again the cycling world is about to hit its annual climax. The Tour de France is in full effect, local triathlons draw thousands of pumped up aero-conscious strava junkies, fixed gear global tours are being recorded from all possible angles and street crits are the new superbowl. The urban cycling ...

Pushing It

Ever been to a bicycle trade show? Or better yet a trade show where all sorts of themes are mixed up and lotsa future and science shit is goin on and cycling is represented as part of that? On a hot day? I’m talking 37°C+. No? Well I was and let me tell ya, if ...

Breaking The Cycle

Ever feel like the everyday routine is wearing you down? Feeling exhausted from work and the stress of modern urban life? Asking yourself how to pay for that epic holiday trip you were gonna plan but then life and stuff got in the way? Well here’s a thing you can almost always do: Grab a ...

New Age

Does anyone remember the time when the word ‘fixie’ wasn’t yet invented? It was a time when the cycling world fought out its battles amongst itself and the mainstream didn’t notice cause other things were drawing the lifestyle oriented urban person’s attention much harder than bikes did. The word ‘yuppie’ was all too present, Michael Jordan ...

Bike experts. They’re everywhere. If you’ve ridden your bike for more than 10km and managed to finally exchange that flat front tube you’re an official bike expert. That qualifies you to post your knowledge all over the internet, no matter if asked for or not. If someone asks for the perfect saddle, you have just ...

Carbon Craze

What does cycling mean to you? Wait, before you answer that, think for a minute. Ready for your answer?.. Please, that was a rhetorical question ride dere. And here’s another one: Who’s into heavy bike customizing?! Probably about everybody nowadays so no need to answer that question either. As a matter of fact, I believe ...

Signs Of Scenes

The term ‘voyeurism’ might result in somewhat negative connotations when read since it is solely defined as something sexual. Not like we’re turned on by spying on bikes while hiding in bushes, but still, ‘voyeurism’ as in ‘the pleasure of looking at something’ describes our intentions quite well. Even if sometimes it’s a pretty sadistic pleasure, as we mostly portrait ...

Club Ride

Saturday night, big city lights, everybody’s out havin a good time. What sounds like the hookline of the latest EDM infused, quasi rap meets pop mainstream production is actually tough reality if you’re living in a bigger city. And because everybody is out havin a good time, we gotta get into it, too. So lets see, as ...

Colnagore

You may remember a post concerning classic Italian road bike customizing. We absolutely digged that, honestly. Few things beat the beauty of a well built classic, even without all the effort of browsing ebay for that vintage super record derailleur from exactly 1972, because the brake cables you found in your basement happen to be from ...

Superdad

There are a lot of ‘heroes’ in the world of cycling. Tour de France winners, Elite track champions, Paris-Roubaix survivors and so forth. Then there are the self proclaimed day to day heroes like messengers or critical mass participants, alleycat attendees and the ever so famous fixed gear crews doing whatever scores the highest scene credit ...
