Jumbo's Omnium Cargo Bike Prototype


Damn this looks nice and fast. "This" as in Copenhagen messenger legend Jumbo's prototype cargobike called 'Omnium'. Gears 'cos you really need 'em for hauling 'ish. I really do want one of these.

From here.

Cinelli MASH SSCX


Here it is finally: the Cinelli X MASH SF collabo Cinelli MASH SSCX 2013 frameset. Prolly got the scoop first so head to his place to read more about it.

All I'm saying is: since we're all living in 2012, the frame really should take disc brakes instead of cantis since even UCI accepts them nowadays. Yes, then the rear spacing would have to be 135mm spaced and there aren't that many manufacturers making 135mm fixed hubs but the option of being able to run disc brakes would be awesome.

Such Nice BJ

Wednesday Ride


Ten brave men, eight track bikes, two road bikes, 70+ kilometers, evening sun, plenty of headwind, ice cream, cold beers. Good times.

Joha's Pelago Cycles San Sebastian


Joha's Pelago Cycles San Sebastian is the first properly built up San Sebastian with photos online and it looks pretty cool, fat tires and all. Basically like Surly's Steamroller but nicer.

Rossin Pista


My 'best bike' and summertime daily ride, Rossin Record Pista in its different guises since I got it in 2008. Evolution or compulsive upgrading of parts for no reason at all? Not sure, probably both.

What's more interesting is that initially I thought it might be bit too big for me but I've since swapped the stem for 2cm longer one and set the saddle a notch further back. Also, during the time I've had the Rossin, I've bought and sold bunch of track frames because they all turned out to be way too small for me. Live and learn.

GLOBAL GUTZ 2012


Don't let your city miss out on this, it is the original Worldwide Bicycle Courier Race!

Be Careful Out There


Re-Up from couple of days ago (took the original post down due to some stupid commentary elsewhere while the situation was still bit unclear).

Anyway, Super-Judda's #fixiefamous Affinity Kissena totaled after a freak-accident caused by confused elderly driver. Judda himself is fine and a new bike is already in the works.

Anyhow, everybody be careful out there, ok?


CHROME X New Era Snapbacks



"Chrome brings city flavor to the New Era Snapbacks and pops-out with color ways for each Chrome HUB store. The Chrome x New Era HUB Collection pays tribute to the local baseball team for each Chrome HUB location, the San Francisco Giants, New York Mets and Chicago White Sox."

I can dig. And my Friday Fashion tip: like Ruudolf & Karri-Koira, always rock sa snapback. You hear me? No fitted caps allowed. Ever.

Rossin Track Fork


I recently posted about a NOS Rossin Pista frame which was dug up from the Velosport shop's legendary warehouse, now couple of weeks later the shop owner discovered also the original fork which he gave to the guy who bought the frame. Free of charge. Simply awesome.

Even if there's nothing really happening in it, this might well be the awesomest clip I've posted within last two years. Looking forward to the actual movie or episodes or whatever.
