    for now there are some great options for cable actuated disc brakes If you really want to go next level TRP has an option I ve been riding TRP CX 9 mini V brakes for two years now on my Raleigh carbon SSCX bike and Paul mini motos on the Traitor Crusade I prefer mini V s over cantilever for stopping power any day of the week An issue I have with rim brakes is the small inconsistencies in the rim At 225lbs I can do some damage to a rim if I hit a root or rock or curb on the trail or course Riding tubulars on the Raleigh I recently put a hop in the rim It s pretty true now but I can feel it when I m applying the brakes it comes to the hop and pulses especially on corners it has a tendency to grab the rim locking the wheel Since the UCI started allowing the use of disc brakes there have been a number of offerings out there Sure you see CX bikes out there with cantilever brakes You will for a long time probably forever But they don t work as well as disc brakes and that s a fact You still see road bikes with single pivot sidepulls as well but once you use a dual pivot it s hard to go back It ll happen and though it may be fought by the traditionalists of cross disc brakes will prevail I don t often trust myself with derailleurs in muddy conditions which is one of the big reasons I race SSCX I am in love with riding fire roads and a gravel road racer bike with fender capability looks to be one thing this bike will excel at If you are looking for something new for the stable consider this an option No it s not cheap but you can t put a price on fun can you Frame 1450 00 Complete with Rival build 3580 00 Complete with Ultegra build 3700 00 And because ride videos keep me happy Here is theirs from Scotland Happy Humpday Local trails ala cx from Andy Wardman on Vimeo PS Santa I ride a 55cm Continue Reading This weekend in NW cyclocross Written by Ryan on September 27 2012 Posted in Bicycle Cyclocross Events No Comments There is lots going on in NW cyclocross this weekend You ve got some options Cascade Cross on Saturday in Bellingham Seattle Cyclocross in Arlington on Sunday And if you want to make grab your passport and head up to Vancouver for this Whatever you do enjoy life Like these guys from Bremerton Continue Reading Hatcher Pass Road Race Written by Ryan on July 30 2012 Posted in Alaska Alley Cat Racing Bicycle Cyclocross Events Races Rides Road Travel 1 Comment If you re looking for a bad ass race in the Great North this one is looking brutal Crazy ascent and gravel roads 7500 of climbing FACEBOOK

    me fairly fit though not by a cyclists definition I went back to commercial fishing this year after a couple years on land Oddly enough 4 months on a boat does not prepare your body for cyclocross racing Not to say that I ve ever been in race shape this year was as hard as the year I moved to Seattle fresh off the boat Much like putting Craig Etheridge on a crab boat after a race season throwing my ass on a bike after fishing season has me feeling like well a fish out of water People say it s fun Yeah I guess so Every race my lungs are on fire while my feet are frozen I can taste the acidic mixture of blood and vomit in my throat and my body fights every step that I have to get off the bike and run Though I didn t make every race last year or this year I still keep coming back I race with a team and wear a spandex kit I never thought I d see the day To tell you the truth I still don t know why I race I don t know why I try and convince other alleycat racers to come out to race cyclocross Perhaps there is a broken part of me that loves the abuse that cross gives me I don t ever see myself standing on the podium and I m ok with that I ll be slogging along trying to stay upright and hopefully not getting lapped more than once Winning for me consists of keeping the 3 simple goals Finish the race don t come in last and keep the rubber side down I do all three and I m feeling pretty damn good about myself This goes out to all the lost souls of Cyclocross To the wanderers and to those that are trying to figure it out To the wives girlfriends husbands boyfriends friends and family members that don t understand why their loved ones would prefer to suffer in the cold and rain than to spend a comfortable day at home eating brunch and drinking mimosas Honestly I don t know why we do it but I ll see you out there And for the assholes that are vying for a spot on the podium remember SECOND PLACE IS THE FIRST LOSER NO FEAR Continue Reading Bilenky Junkyard Cross Written by Ryan on December 10 2011 Posted in Bicycle Cyclocross Film video Races No Comments More outside the box thinking for a cross course This edit toured with the Bicycle Film Festival in 2011 Bilenky Junkyard Cross from In The Crosshairs on Vimeo Continue Reading The results are in from SSCXWC 2011 Written by Ryan on December 8 2011 Posted in Bicycle Cyclocross Events 8 Comments The SSCXWC organizers have come to a decision In an announcement from the Single Speed Cyclocross World Championship promoters the organizers have decided to allow Chris Jones and

  • Go Means Go! The Berliner Fahrradschau | GO MEANS GO
    and is supplied locally in Berlin Knowing this however it was interesting to observe that the most common assumption from people stopping by their booth was that their bikes were just painted metal Nope Ozon also provides an interesting option for building your bike You can either pay a bit more to have them build you a custom frame or you can attend one of their workshops and make your own handbuilt frame in just a few days for a seriously reasonable price The Berliner Fahrradshau exemplified what the bicycle has become since its invention over a century ago not just it s technical and mechanical development but its conceptual metamorphoses from a mere means of transportation to a part of life In the States riding a bicycle can sometimes feel like a one man PSA campaign spreading awareness that bikes do in fact exist are cool and can actually be used on a daily basis other than just exercise In the EU almost everyone has a bike and and they typically use it often The Berliner Fahrradshau took the bike a step further More than just a trade show it was a festival celebrating the assimilation of the bicycle into all facets of life Yes riding a bicycle will get and keep you in shape Yes a bicycle is a more than viable means of transportation But the bicycle has become more than just something you use to get around or keep healthy It has become a culture and community generator Having firmly established roots in Europe it s no surprise that the concept of the bicycle extends beyond any one category It is an object around which people gather not just to move bodies but to make memories forge friendships and create communities It is itself a source of energy and inspiration and as long as the wheels keep spinning the people and communities around bicycles will keep growing transforming and pedaling into new territories escaping the void We put together a list of other companies that peaked our interest and that you may be interested in Check em out Big Forest Frameworks http bigforestframeworks com is making beautiful handbuilt steel frames in Potsdam He also offers workshops to build your own custom bike Bike Punk Berlin http www bike punk com is one of the shops in Berlin dedicated to the fixed scene Blind Chic http blind chic com makes some pretty rad gear all handmade in a former brewery turned art collective in Budapest Cicli Berlinetta http cicli berlinetta de A pretty rad bike shop in Berlin with custom frames as well some vintage steeds cloting and componentry Exzentriker http ex zentriker de Eccentric bottom brackets for standard bottom bracket shells and headsets Felvarrom http felvarrom com Tired of boring plastic trophies This Hungarian trio creates unique handmade cycling apparel and trophies from upcycled bicycle parts Goldsprint http www goldsprint de Focused on the fixed gear and mesenger scene in Berlin Goldsprint has a store front
