Alfred was one of the first bike messengers I saw in action in NYC that made me realize some people were born to ride a track bike. He’s fast and flows two steps ahead of traffic in any situation. Put him in the mix to race Monster Track and he’ll surprise you.
Check out Alfred’s cap at the Winged Store!
Well, I didn’t but the man interviewed in this documentary probably did if you’ve ever had one stolen in DC. I wasn’t going to post this at first, but it’ll be worth the watch!
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.
See more at Acre!
I’ve been wearing a lot of the fall 2013 New Road line recently on both my road and MTB. The favorite being that rad Insulated Vest. Before the launch, earlier this year the Giro team headed to Minneapolis to shoot the product photos and video. If you look closely you might see some Handsome fellas in there.
I love that a wool shearer knows what the peloton is. RADelaid! Check out photos from the RGR Adelaide here.
With the success of last year’s Road Bike Party video, Martyn’s at it again. This time on a ‘Nago with discs.
Nice vibes in the latest video from Chrome:

And to think, here I was stoked on doing a shallow river crossing this morning and finding a dead deer while out on the fatty. I can’t let my Pugsley see this!
“Chapter One of the five-part short film Cold Rolled: Marquette Michigan’s Snow Bike Route, an action documentary from Clear & Cold Cinema, Salsa Cycles and TravelMarquetteMichigan.com that will explore the history and progression of winter cycling culture in the adventure-loving Lake Superior harbor town of Marquette, Michigan.
Marquette’s Noquemanon Trails Network has nearly perfected equipment and techniques used to launch its Snow Bike Route, a 15-mile winter singletrack developed for fat tire bikes. The fast narrow trail features flowy terrain, steep descents and large bermed turns. It’s believed to be the first trail of its kind–but more importantly, it’s pretty fun.
Chapter One features riding along an ungroomed section of trail that is often packed by foot traffic from Marquette’s active population. This section of trail follows the Dead River and passes under a leaky water pipe that forms curtains of ice in the winter months.”
