Acre, a subdivision of Mission Workshop, went on a maiden journey earlier this year. This journey took photographer Dan Barham along, to shoot the Swiss and French Alps, test out the gear as well as his own abilities as a rider and a photographer. In short, to Wander. You can read, view and watch the journey unfold as part of the Acre journal now.

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!
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.
Today I took Brian Vernor over to Ian of Icarus Frames‘ shop. Those two individuals have inspired me to continue to support small, local frame builders consistently over the years. Their work embodies the craftsmanship and creativity that I look to for inspiration during the daily grind, so I was stoked to introduce them.
While Brian was getting to know Ian, I took a few photos of this unique track frameset that just so happens to be for sale. This is no “street fixie”, it’s a tough-as-nails, stiff, true track sprint machine, complete with inverted 29r chainstays, a 44mm head tube and all oversized tubing. It’s a sprinter’s dream machine!
Check out the frame details and pricing below!

Look, I hate Las Vegas and I’m not too stoked on Interbike, but being able to hang out with friends the whole time is certainly a high point. Especially these dudes. Magic just happens, like the moment I realized the vuvuzela makes an exceptional beer bong!

The King Kog team is killing it this year up in NY, most recently at Supercross. Check out more of Chris Lee’s photos here!
One of my favorite bike dudes to hang with (and photograph) was recently interviewed over at Optimus Fixed.
“OF: I remember you as a relaxed and interested person with a modest atitude. So do you have any special philosophy in live?
My philosophy in life at its most simple is to do what makes you happy. Take whatever opportunity you have to travel, and further yourself as a human. I’m lucky enough to be able to go all over the world, with people that I love, and get together on a level that pushes us all to our physical limits.”

This is the twelfth layout of the 2013 PiNP Calendar, entitled “The Constant Climb”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.
We’ve all read the metaphors eluding to the inherent connection of the bicycle and life’s struggles. You’ll find none of that here. This is the last month of the 2013 PiNP Calendar and I think this photo best represents the goal of the site, without even stating anything. Next year, I’ll be making a rather large change and I hope you’ll stick around for the ride!

This whole ‘cross thing is getting seriouser and seriouser each year, which is bad! Cross is really fun and that funness should be treated with kid gloves. That said, just because it’s fun, doesn’t mean it isn’t painful and majestic when in the right venue. Like say, the Northwest…. Check out some recent photos shot by Andy Bokanev here!
