SSCXWC Qualifiers: normally, that means a bunch of clipless, singlespeed warriors racing around a closed course in some city park, but this year, it was in Philly and Philly don’t fuck around. More to come, but for now, see the rest of Dylan’s photos here!
I love the vintage Cinelli Laser track bike. The low pros and pursuits are nice, but the lines of the true track model never get old. Hrrundel has been playing with some studio photos of this bike and I found this one in particular worth the share. See more at the Hrrundel Flickr.
These are some screen shots from part 02 of the Ertzui film for AWOL. I can’t wait to see it! Miss part 01? Check it out here. Check out some more teaser shots here.

The pre and post-ride coffee spots of the world deserve as much credit as the rides themselves. I had never even heard of 10 Speed Coffee until Kyle shot these photos for Tracko. Very nice! See the rest here.
Having spent 48 hours with Mike Cherney on a bicycle, during Brovet #03, I can say without a doubt that he is one of the most unique individuals I’ve ever met and I mean that in the best way possible.
Mike is a true craftsman, so much so that Moots recently commissioned him to fabricate eight sterling silver headbadges. Each badge is made from 1 troy ounce of Sterling Silver.
The badges are now for sale at Moots, for $300 USD or you can read up on the process Mike used at the Moots Blog!
Yikes! I should have warned you that this is NSFW on a Friday. Baum’s neon paint jobs are killing it! First that MTB and now this Ristretto track bike. See more of this eye-melting machine at the BAUM Flickr!
Here we go again! It’s the latest #SVENNESS video from CX Hairs! I hope this gets you amped up for a weekend of racing.
These go fast, so you know the drill. This stock will be the last re-up of the year, so swoop at Golden Saddle Cyclery!
This video from Swobo, profiling Igleheart is amazing!
“Christopher Igleheart is probably the nicest guy in the bicycle industry–but don’t hold that against him. He’s been making bikes longer than most folks have been riding them and he does it a deep sense of understanding and a gracious smile.
We got to know him when he relocated to Portland, Oregon about a year ago and started building custom frames in a shared shop space with Joseph Ahearne. His bikes are simple, but they’re beautiful and they’re strong. He should know a thing or two about making tough bikes as he had a big hand in the building of the iconic and coveted Fat Chance mountain bikes in the 80′s.
Sharing a conversation with Chris about bikes is like taking a history lesson from the coolest professor on campus, who also happened to have a hand in the making of the very history they are teaching that semester. He’s wise, he’s insightful, and he’s probably one of the best people to share a post-ride beer with that we’ve ever met.
Igleheart is the inspiration for the entire Movers and Makers Series and we figured it was right to start off Volume 1 with him. Enjoy!”
Still continuing the snowy tradition since 1987, Iditabike has now evolved to a fatbike race. Before fatbikes however, brave souls ventured out on rigid MTBs with touring bits to compete. Here’s a documentary covering the 1988 event.
Personally, I’m sure the fatbike is a better suited machine, but this looks fucking rad!
