Yeah yeah, I scoffed too. Scattante? Performance Bike? But if you’re like me and not being paid to ride….. I’d been getting in shape and didn’t think my 25yr old PUCH steel SLX frame with components from anywhere and everywhere was properly motivating me. I could have resurrected my awesome Steelman frame from my last […]
I think compact gearing exist’s so recreational riders aren’t running mid to low gears leaving them forever feeling inferior. Look over hear ma, I’m crunching the big stuff! Either that or a compact crank and compact gearing are more efficient and you can move up to bigger gears when your power or the terrain calls […]
Broke my 4th Cannondale frame last spring. Sudden tire rub indicated I had broken spokes or a bent rim. I tried truing the wheel but suddenly noticed a gaping whole in the drive side chain stay. Hmmm I don’t think that’s supposed to be there! So naturally I went online looking for another Cannondale to […]
Paris Roubaix is arguably the greatest one day cycling race in the world. Jørgen Leth captured the race, the riders and professional cycling itself in his 1976 classic A Sunday in Hell. The movie is hard to come by these days but DA Films has it available in three formats – streaming, AVI download and […]

Similar to an epic ride in San Francisco I followed the strict regime of staying up late for intensive liquid carbo loading, getting up early and hitting the most local looking hip bike rental shop. That would be Neill’s Wheels in […]

After 23 years the US Pro Criterium Championships moved from Downers Grove Illinois to Glencoe. Sorry to see Downers Grove go as it was one of the longest running races in the nation and probably the closest to a cycling tradition the US has. I love the Downers Grove course, both as a fan/photographer and […]

The Church of the Big Ring is back in session, hopefully I will be faithful in attending weekly. The pastor welcomed me back with open arms and then promptly reminded me of my sins. Yes I was back on the bike for the second weekend in a row. Thankfully with age I’ve learned not to […]
