Pacific Blue Bike Chase

Bike Hugger - Fri, 06/17/2016 - 03:35


Power-sliding Spinergy RevX’s are awesome. So are chase scenes that includes trials moves. Also see this scene that’s less awesome, but has more power sliding.

I have a 1997 Giant Ferrago.  Great bike, bulletproof.  I was changing the rear tube, and doing a bit of lube to both wheels.  When all was said and done, I had a left over spring that I think came...

Bike Hugger - Thu, 06/16/2016 - 09:02

Detroit Bike’s B-Type, a fav city bike of ours, is now available in mint with retro saddle and grips, white wall tires, and chrome fenders. Quite nice and read a post about the vanilla B-Type from earlier this year and what Patrick Brady had to say about them on Medium Bicycles and in our magazine. The models from Detroit are no more than $699.00, well equipped, and made with durable steel.

Motor Doping: Episode 2

Bike Hugger - Mon, 06/13/2016 - 05:23

Remember when “motor doping” was laughed off as impossible? No one is laughing now—part 2 of the French TV program report on motor doping includes claims that a UCI official colluded with an e-bike maker.

“Hi,” the message reads. “Do you have a phone number I can all [sic] you on straight away, I’m sitting with French police who believe an engineer ‘Hungarian’ is visiting TDF today to sell a bike and visit teams, could this be your guy???”

Indicating the seriousness of the allegations, the UCI has responded with a press statement

The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) has consulted experts from a wide variety of backgrounds – including university academics, mechanical, electronic and software engineers, and bike suppliers – in the process of developing an effective method of detecting technological fraud.

The person interviewed in the Stade 2 report was among those consulted by the UCI in order to fully understand the technologies available and hence how to detect cases of technological fraud.

The UCI has full confidence in its staff employed in this area. It will investigate whether emails sent in 2015 to an external consultant were passed on to a third party and used in a way that no-one intended.

How to reduce bicycle thefts? More cowboys

Biking Bis - Sun, 06/12/2016 - 10:23

Hollywood cowboy legends Tom Mix and Gene Autry came to the aid of many damsels in distress, but those days are over, right?

Not so fast pardner.

On Friday, a cowboy shopping at a Wal-Mart in Eagle Point, Oregon, aided a woman whose bicycle had just been stolen.

Hearing her screams, Robert Borda pulled his horse “Long …

The Trappist Breweries of the Ardennes

Bike Hugger - Sat, 06/11/2016 - 06:05

The Trappist Breweries of the Ardennes is the latest Rapha film.

For cyclists, the Ardennes is a place more commonly associated with bergs than beers, drawing fans and pros alike to its famous roads each year for three of the sport’s classic races. But for four Rapha riders, it was the idea of connecting three monastic breweries using these historic race routes that drew them to Belgium.

Earlier this year, I reviewed the Classic Jersey on Medium Bicycles and in our magazine.
