Keepin It Real

With singlespeed bikes being mainstream nowadays and about a million companies offering off the rack singlespeed models in all kinds of colors and shapes you would think we’ve reached the anti-climax of trendy urban cycling. But you failed miserably. There’s people out there who just can’t get enough. Enough color, enough uniqueness, enough ‘look at me ...

Add On

Every year round springtime you get a front row seat at the great show of cycling styles even if you choose to not take part. You simply set a foot outside and are almost run over by a fixed gear cause the rider was too busy looking at his new cycling shoes or admiring the ...

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 ...

Easter Trippin

The Easter weekend has unsuspectedly blessed us with blue skies and mild temperature so everyone and their brother is out there riding their bikes. Most of them are quite busy posting their milage and routes on facebook and instagram which is still a mystery to me. Take an epic pic of your bike leaning against ...

Hodgepodge

It’s funny how the simple idea of pedaling to go forward becomes manifest in so many different ways. I’m talking technical aspects, not wearing classy tweed dress pants vs wearing cargo shorts with ridiculous amounts of hip bags on your belt while strolling around on your vintage second hand never ever seen before 80s Koga Miyata ...

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 ...

Leverage

Humans and machines are funny. Humans invent machines to fulfill a purpose first and foremost. Then they start modifying the shit out of them, making them stronger, lighter, faster, better. Whatever. Somewhere in that process they seem to lose their focus though. The machine gets modified in ways that don’t make sense and often times ...

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 ...

Twentysix

The 26″ urban singlespeed machine is a minority within a minority. It’s so rare you’re more likely to spot a panda hangin out at your favorite coffee spot. So every time I see a 26″ conversion I know it’s time to take a closer look. I didn’t get disappointed when I spotted dis ride here: ...

Engineering

Slowly but surely I’m getting kinda used to unattended bikes flooding the city. People just don’t seem to give a fuck about the state their ride is in and the reasons for that are as incomprehensible as they are varied: “I don’t have the time for maintenance”, “I’m broke”, “my bike is less likely to get ...
