CrossVegas 2009

LanceUppercut & I enjoyed the CrossVegas race after aimlessly wandering through Interbike this past Wednesday. Good time.


"The bike developed by Hopworks Urban Brewing, has been built on the frame of a cargo bike that carries two kegs of beer and a pizza storage compartment. The bike will be shown off at the upcoming Oregon Manifest handmade bike show."


Pirate Bicycle Head Badge

This aluminum bicycle head badge is self sticking and available to buy for $11.50 at wcfanshop. Thanks to Lance Uppercut for sending me an email link (but being too lazy to post it).


Tandem Robo-Biker Pedals For You

This is an article I found on Geekologie.com. The writer has an unnatural love for Dinosaurs, and is convinced that
Robots will take over the world and do weird and dirty things to him. Hence the article below referring to above Robot. Enjoy.

"Joules is a robot designed to KILL! pedal the back of a tandem bicycle. And I can honestly say I have absolutely no interest in biking down the street getting ****** by a robot names Joules.

'He's the creation of a guy called Chris who, challenged by his son to create an electric tandem that worked via pedal power, more than satisfied the brief.

The nuts-and-bolts robot is powered by a PMG-132 electric motor and, unlike most lazy-assed back-end tandem riders, does all the work himself.'

Yeah but no but no. As much as I do hate pedaling myself, I'd rather walk my bike up a hill than have this jerk do the work for me. You hear that, Lance Failstrong? YOU WILL NEVER PEDAL ME!"


25 hrs in Frog Hollow (Oct.31-Utah)

Anyone interested in a Race?
During Daylight Savings weekend (hence 25 hours). Halloween Night, I can only imagine the outfits. In the desert, weather normally 70s day time, 40s nights during this time of year. Charity for this race is: 50% for local trail building and maintenance and the other 50% to the IMBA. The race is in Hurricane, Utah.

Bike Thieves Caught on CCTV in Bristol

The move towards Socialism invites public surviellance (think 1984). If you have lived or visited the UK you probably know that the CCTV cameras are everywhere. In this case... some wankers are caught on camera nicking a bicycle.
