Today, the Urban Cycling Hall Of Fame (UCHOF) was launched in conjunction with Echos CommunicationsChrome Industries. The purpose of the UCHOF is to spotlight the rich culture and history of urban riding. How is the UCHOF planning on doing so?
Well, I didn’t really want the gold but these in-store exclusive Golden Saddle Cyclery bottles look great on my Geekhouse. They look even better a bit dirty and dusty. Pick one up now in shop because they’re already getting low on stock.
I’m in Los Angeles today, en route for Santa Barbara and the ATOC tomorrow but before leaving town, I had to do a cross ride with Kyle. Some ups, just as many downs and a few spills made for a great ride. While my film sits in its canister, awaiting being developed, check out these two photos from Kyle’s Instagram. I forget how beautiful Los Angeles is, especially this time of year in the mountains. Nature is so metal.
Today is killing it on the video front. First Massan and now Matt Spencer. Two of my favorite people to watch on a fixed gear. Matt’s newest Wolf Drawn edit is filled with the good shit. Edgers, airs, techy and creative street riding. This one’s a chilled out and smooth ride, a must see!
Cadence is once again having a sale on Huckberry, the discount site that’s always stacked with great deals. You have to sign up to see the items, but it’s free and painless. Head on over to see what’s discounted.
This has got to be one of my favorite cross bikes I’ve photographed since Ty’s Hufnagel. Raffy’s tale is a unique one, just like his Stinner. He works at Euro Asia and is arguably responsible for gumwall tires being distributed in the continental United States. While the specifics of that are still a but fuzzy, this bike is anything but. Clean, sharp lines mixed in with great paint and a pretty rad build list. See for yourself in the Gallery.

Over the next few months, I’ll be spending more time on the road than I will in Austin and it all begins today with Los Angeles for the Amgen Tour of California. Last year, I was in LA and SF almost as much as I was in ATX. This summer, it’ll be even more.
Expect nothing but the best on-the-road coverage for the next week or so…

Prolly is not Probably started in 2006 in Brooklyn, New York. For over 6 years it has thrived as John Watson, the sole author, documents multiple facets of cycling. With the boom of urban cycling, Prolly is Not Probably has grown to be the number one blog for the culture surrounding it. 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. In March of 2011, John moved to Austin, Texas where he continues to cover a cross section of cultural influences.
