bicycle culture ephemera blogged from the salt city

i still have such a boner for this bike. granted, the rider is a sponsored DH racer, but he’s taking bigger jumps than i would ever attempt on a 5” travel bike… so yeah, most people don’t need a 6” bike in CNY.

the Windham World Cup DH track from two POV cameras. yeeeiiikes!

useful tips, but the production quality and anal-retentiveness are truly lulz-worthy :-) none of my bikes have ever been this clean.

Stan's NoTubes Recommended Tires

'cuz sharing is caring: Stan's provides this handy recommendation list for selecting tires to use tubelessly (not a word it is now) with their rims.

primary takeaways:

  1. WTB TCS tires ≠ Stan’s rims
  2. almost every other tubeless-ready or non-tubeless-reday tire should* work okay

this has been a friendly PSA from your pal cyclecuse. go forth, ride fun!

*YMMV; when in doubt, look it up on the MTBR forums.

is this not so perfect? i will always think of these folks when i hear reggae music. View high resolution

there’s a lot of kits where i’m like I NEED THIS, when in reality, of course i don’t. better reason usually prevails. unless it’s from twin six.

i’d seen this floating around various bike blogs, but only just watched and goddamn it’s funny!

Hey @breadwinnercycles and @raylasol remember that time we realized riding Whistler on hard tails was like eating soup with a fork? Can’t believe that was a year ago already!? #tbt #communicationbreakdown

a personal update

in the last week & a couple days, i 1) got married to my best friend & love of my life, 2) landed a great job in my field, and 3) saw the top-level pro cross-country mountain bikers in the world duke it out in the beautiful foothills of the Catskills. oh and 4) i rode two laps on said pro xc course. it was rad.

so… apologies for the lack of updates, i’ve just been busy. might get busier. either way, life’s good, ride bikes.

big love,

-doug of cyclecuse
