Puking for KASH — a Gold Sprints fundraiser in Durham, NC.

A couple weekends ago, some awesome folks in downtown Durham, NC decided to throw together a Gold Sprints race to help raise money for a K.A.S.H. (Kitchens Against Sexual Harassment). From Carrie, the founder of KASH: “KASH is an initiative that I started putting together last year. After 10+ years of working in restaurants and…

All-City’s new dirt dropper, the Gorilla Monsoon

It’s been interesting to watch All-City progress into the brand they are today. Many of us may remember the “#partybrand” — do they still even use that hashtag? — of the mid 2000s with their urban track, fixed free, and even a polo bikes. These days they are much more focused on dirt, with a…

Eric’s Single Speed Niner MCR

Eric loves single speeds. In fact, he has no geared bikes, because why not? Who needs them? His Niner MCR has so much character and wear. It is very obvious that this thing has been well loved. Sure, it is a little beat up, but it is a single speed! You can do that with…

Throwback Thursday Bicycle – Greg’s ’82 Eddy Merckx

Greg recently walked into the shop with this and quite literally everything stopped for the better part of an hour. That’s how pristine and perfect this bike was. WHY CAN’T I FIND A BIKE LIKE THIS IN MASSIVE GIANT SIZE? WHY?!?!? Anyway, I stole it from him for a few moments and got up close…

Cross Withdrawal

Welp. That’s that. This weekend saw some exciting World Cup action and the new, scratch that, REPEAT champions were crowned after a muddy slog-fest at Valkenburg that I doubt many participants will soon forget. Unfortunately, cross season has already been over for many in the States for some time now. We are knee deep in the withdrawals…

Dave’s Ti Kish Road

  Kish bikes, made in Carrboro, NC, are absolutely beautiful. Jim Kish does phenomenal work. Though I have seen my fair share of them over the past few years, I never get tired of working on nor the pleasure of riding one. Dave’s road bike rides like a dream. There is so much goodness made…

Sisu x Strava

The Surly Pugsley 2.0

Speaking of Surly, they have just announced the return of their classic Pugsley platform. For those who may not know, it was the first production fat bike, and though it isn’t an extremely popular platform for the southeast (though if global warming keeps making winter colder and more snowy, maybe not?), I still love it…

Pantone Color Code: 1815 C? or is it 185 C?

Surly just re-stocked their amazing Krampus, but someone got a little too computer cat on the order and the bikes showed up in a new unexpected color, which they are rolling with and calling “Pickled Beet Red.” Check it out and have yourself a little chuckle HERE.   – Jared
