It’s gotta feel great to work your ass off on a project and have it end splendidly. Or rather, begin splendidly upon completion. The guys at Signal have been in a production crunch zone for the past few weeks, preparing their new Crusade cross frames for a trip to Japan.
There’s a rad write-up on their site, as well as a few production photos and a race report from Osaka. Head over to the Signal blog and see the first and second post for yourself!
Something tells me this is only the beginning for the Signal Crusade…
This weekend is Spookycross here in Melbourne, thrown by none other than Dirty Deeds, the local ‘cross organization. Come out, bring beer, costumes, cross bikes and your heckling A game. I’ll be out shooting photos, so say hello.
Pre-registration is open, so get on that!
Here’s a video from last weekend’s Bubblecross, a cross race in New Jersey… Congrats to Dan Chabanov for winning the pro division (with a guitar solo). Also, make sure you check out Dan’s column on Peloton’s blog!

It’s not often that I come across bicycle photography that piques my interest. Hey, I’m critical! You kind of have to be these days, right? At any rate, when I came across Twenty Tree’s photo of what I’m assuming is his new Stoemper cross bike, I had to share it. Those macro photos are too fucking good!
See the full Flickr photoset here!

It’s not everyday that PiNP does a Reader’s Rides post. In fact, it’s been months! When I received this email from Fredrik however, I had to share. The world of the fat tire road bike has expanded rapidly with the growing popularity of ‘gravel grinder’ rides. While I’ll say that cross bikes are the best all-rounders, some people want to tune their ride with a slightly different characteristics.
That’s what Fredrik achieved with his his new ride. Check out more below!
Here’s a rad, feel good video from Portland Design Works and Breadwinner Cycles. Featuring members of the team racing, hanging out and Tony’s cute kid. Such a great video and the Holeshot SS disc looks so good guys!
Geekhouse has really nails the brightly-colored bicycle and while I prefer my Mudville as black as they come, some people love the neon. Take NB from Blue Lug‘s new Team Mudville… Now getting dirty in Japan during this year’s season. See more photos of this bright beast at the Blue Lug Flickr!

I’ve really enjoyed these past few #SVENNESS videos from CX Hairs, especially this one from the first UCI World Cup of the season. That descent looks like so much fun!
