multi-discipline badass rider, carbon repair/fabrication dude, & all-around nice guy Hern has been making waves in the bike internets lately. video above via The Radish, event flyer below via AHTBM, and group pic with Randy H from SSCXWC13 in Philly last December (look at my hair! i miss it sometimes…). keep hustlin’ Hern!
so many new fatbikes have been announced this week that even if i wanted to post a product photo of each one, tumblr wouldn’t let me (limited to 10 photos at a time). so i’ll have to break it up by manufacturer. first, out of respect for the origins, etc., we have surly.
Pilar’s new bike! it’s here it’s here! and not just any bike, but a Bionix-equipped electric-assist cargo haulin’ Kona Ute!
thanks so much to Steve, Sara, Neil, Neil’s uncle and everyone at Mello Velo Bicycles and Mack Bros. Boiler Works for making this happen! Pilar has already ridden her (tentative name is Sugar Magnolia) to work & back & is in love <3
and there’s a 650b version of the straggler! which means a 650b version of the 41mm knard tire! check the geosheets; these new frames are actually a little different than their 700c counterparts. slacker head tube angles & steeper seat tube angles for tiny sizes, shorter chainstays for all. neat!
