While I was on the road for the ATOC, I hung out with Garrett and Ranier, two rad guys who are serious about the Earth, just like good ol’ Bronner. To raise money for plane tickets to the 2013 Tour de France, they’re selling a run of these bottles. If you don’t get the reference, these bottles aren’t for you but if you’ve ever used the peppermint castile soap, you know how great it feels after a long ride. Scoop up two of these 22oz Purist bottles (sorry, USA only!) with MoFlo caps at Bronner Bottle.
It’s almost the weekend and I shouldn’t even have to tell you to get out and ride. I haven’t shown any of my film photos from China but I can let these two slip through. It’s Jeff, MMC and Tyler from Factory 5 ripping out of the bamboo forest…
Before my duffle bag with all my clothing and cycling apparel was stolen in SF (die, bastards!), my Team Dream Team Bicycle Team Bobcat shirt was going to be a summer staple. Bobcats are cool because nature is metal and I love pocket tees. Or, if front-graphic tees are more your style, why not pick up a “Woody” edition:
“Meet Thomas “Woody” Wood, proprietor of Golden Saddle Cyclery, cycling coach, former messenger, US Olympic mechanic, Master Track National Champion, new dad, and all around good dude. This tall tree took a spill mountain biking and now has a rather large accumulation of medical bills that need to be paid.”
It’s great to see two Boston brands representing American production and fabrication: New Balance and Firefly Bicycles. Although, it’s a little weird to go through that whole speech and end with “1 out of every 4 pairs of shoes we sell in the USA is made or assembled here”.
Tak is one of the OG bike messenger photographers in NYC and so seeing him shooting something like the Red Hook Crit is even that much more significant. Who would have thought that alleycats would eventually turn into track bike criteriums? See more at New York Bike Dreams.
I had to swing by Icarus Frames ( @IcarusFrames ) today to pick up a few things and while I was there, I got to see some of his latest handywork. This 1×10 commuter cross frame is heading up to Boston and while the customer didn’t want anything too fancy, Ian added some clean detailing. The fork will be an ENVE cross and it’ll be heading out to paint shortly. Part of me really loves seeing a frame in this state but a good coat of paint always brings out the details.
In addition to all the new track frame offerings Dosnoventa has been serving up recently, today they released the Helsinki SSCX. Tapered fork, oversized aluminum tubing and those fat stays outta make for one stiff ride. Check out more details at Dosnoventa.

In recent years, a large push for original content has spawned a steady flow of photosets, profiles and portraits.
Known for his A Day in 10 Photos, Merckx Mondays, Recent Roll, Shop Visits, and Beautiful Bicycles features, John continues to document bicycles of all kinds and his daily life through photos. Over the years, Prolly is Not Probably has been cited in the New York Times, COG Magazine, Urban Velo and other notable publications.
