Rapha‘s Strava challenges are always a lot of fun. Ever look to see what the competitors are riding? Personally, I always enjoy clicking on the leader’s stats and seeing where they rode and what kind of elevation they can hit on their home turf. For the Rapha Rising 2013, people came out of the woodwork:
“30,841 riders worldwide took to the hills and mountain roads as part of the eight-day Rapha Rising Challenge. The challenge, in conjunction with Strava, was to climb the combined height of the Alpe d’Huez, Peyresourde, Ventoux and Col de Sarenne. A total of 7, 235m was the target but, of course, many went above and beyond that figure.”
The Campagnolo C-Record Delta brake is one of the most beautiful components to ever grace the history of cycling. While some wrenches claim they’re shit, other, more pedigreed mechanics love their unique center pull braking mechanism. Which brings me to the Dodelta. Commentary on the brake, or the user? You decide…

I absolutely love Chris McNally‘s work. His watercolor illustrations really capture the spirit of getting out and riding your bike. Ok, ok, whatever, but he’s damn good at what he does! Check out his latest “creation”… Thanks for the heads up Pearl Velo!
One of Woof‘s classic designs got a little remix recently. I’ve always loved this piece!
With the Tour right around the corner, the cycling posters come out of the woodwork. I’ve seen a lot of work over the years but Bruce Doscher’s are very unique. See his work from last year’s Tour at his portfolio site.
100 Copies’ newest work, entitled Together We Ride is now available for online purchase. As with all 100 Copies work, each run is limited to 100 prints and each will be watermarked, labeled with the title and edition number.
To celebrate Muhammad’s birthday, Gibranos made this illustration for his site, Woof Jakarta.
I always love Woof’s artwork. Here’s his newest piece, entitled “Get a Grip“.
Each year, tour designs come and go but I can say with certainty that this piece by Dave Foster is one of the best I’ve ever seen. Pick up this design on a number of different products here.
I may not be a BMX lifer but the Dig BMX Logo has always been visually engaging to me. Growing up in the metal, punk and hardcore scenes, I always found it relevant. Four fists and a chainring (sorry, sprocket), how simple. But what’s the meaning behind it?
Head over to Defgrip to see what Dig’s editor-in-chief, Will Smyth has to say…
