Bicycle Bridge In Bruges 07/06/2014


Bicycle_bridgeSome countries just take riding their bikes way more seriously than us. To the point where they will adopt proper infrastructure purely dedicated to the safety and pleasure of riding your bike – separate from cars and trucks.

L’Estérelle 07/04/2014


Esterelle_PostThanks to a nice ride recommendation from Café Du Cycliste I was able to escape the Cannes festival and head up the coast to steal a few miles. A new journal post from the ride is up. If you are in the region and looking for rides in and around the Alpes Maritimes check out their site here. They have a great selection close to Nice that will take you up on some great climbs like the Col d’Ezé and The Turini.

Saffron For Cyclefit 05/19/2014


saffron_01It takes a lot to make a bike stand out these days, and when you stare at them as much as I do even more to make you stop in your tracks. On a recent trip to London I walked by the Cyclefit shop every morning on the way to our office. And every morning that is exactly what this Saffron frame did, stop me in my tracks. The color and the finish in the “flesh” are absolutely stunning. Then you look a little closer and you notice the details in the frame construction as well. Like the really neat seat clamp nicely embedded into the rear stays. The beautiful polished head tube that matches the fork, giving the impression of a continuous single piece of tubing. The color inspired by a classic 1936 Buick with the brand decal showing through with a beautiful polish. A stunning frame and finish. More shots after the break.

A custom project by Vintage Luxury Cycles of Spain, they have taken a timeless Colnago Master and finished it with the ultimate classic spec. The paint is a white pearl with BMW “Marrakech” brown detailing. The group set is Campagnolo Record first generation with 24 karat gold plating. Incredible.
