Mash just posted up Ranier’s Red Hook Crit race report. It’s a great read and considering that he beasted it the whole race, bringing in a very respectible 2nd place. Check out the report here at the Mash SF Blog.
Since PiNP is a one-man show, it’s tough to make it out to every single event. Over the years, I’ve gotten to know a lot of inspiring and talented individuals through the bike scene. Many of which are photographers who’ve inspired me to continue pressing forward with the site. So when I relaunched PiNP with new galleries and photosets, I wanted to reach out to my peers and ask them to contribute content. While I’m not ready to start handing over guest accounts, one of the ways I’m implementing this material is through Recent Roll posts: looking through their lenses.

In SF, there’s a way to avoid all the major hills in various neighborhoods. It’s a winding route through the streets that bypasses steep climbs and rides the range. It’s called the Wiggle. Bay Nature wrote a piece on the history of the Wiggle, explaining its origins. Check it out here.

You can’t work on bikes in a messy shop. My goal in the next few weeks is to build a legit workshop. It just makes life easier, as the Tokyo Fixed Gear team has found out. They’ve got a new shop and that means, new pricing and specials. Head to their site to see how they could become your LBS if they aren’t already (in London).
Personal obligations sometimes get in the way of hanging out with friends but even if I only get to say hi for a few minutes, it’s worth it. During the Mash TT on Saturday, Kelli rode Marc’s LOW track bike and finished only 15 minutes behind the leading guy group. Unfortunately, she dropped her team in the process. Here she is, smiling ear to ear after a quick change out of the kit and into street clothes. Marc, when are you giving her your bike dude?
