Cyclists.... Please use your better judgement.

Most of the cyclist out there typically have to deal with the woes of idiotic and/or jerk drivers. We do our best to use our best judgement when we're out riding to stay protected.


....obviously these cyclists in this video think they can get past the waves (although one rider did make it without getting caught too badly in the waves).

"It's your ride"

Great video for those that want to just have their own identity with their bikes and not feel the pressure of others trying to steer you towards their way.

TIME RXRS Ulteam Tour de France edition

Although Tour de France has ended for this year, that does not mean the spirit has gone with it. Here we have a limited edition Time RXRS Ulteam Tour de France Module built to perfection.

Built with complete Sram Red black as you can see from the cranks and rear derailleur, Mavic Ksyrium SLR wheelset was chosen to propel this beast up any hill and glide down any descent. Check out the awesome detailed pics of this build.

fi'zi:k Kurve saddles

All new for 2012 from fi'zi:k is their Kurve saddles, offered in 3 different fits. The Arione (the snake), Antares (the chameleon), and Aliante (the bull).

3 main features that are on the Kurve:
  • Wing Flex - flexible wings that allows for more efficient pedal strokes by working with the rider, not against it.
  • Mobius Rail - Complete one-piece circular rail construction eliminating pressure points while improving flex
  • Tunable Nose - fi'zi:k's newest innovation. This is an interchangeable tension system at the nose of the saddle, allowing the rider to choose between a softer or a stiffer nose feel to the saddle.
We have SIX of these coming in next week, 2 Arione, 2 Antares, and 2 Aliante. These will be the ONLY KURVES available till end of December 2011 or January 2012.

Connecting the City - Biking through SF has just gotten better!

Biking in the city of San Francisco can be dangerous sometimes. We're often worried about cars, motorcycles, even pedestrians not paying attention to cyclists. This is a cool little clip that was shown to me through a friend who's thesis is "urban renewal" and I gotta say, this is definitely a way to gain more cycling awareness.

Time to save some gas money and get that dream bike you've always wanted. If you can't think of a place to purchase a bike, leave a comment. I think I may know a place that can help =)

2011 Interbike - Through the eyes of Wrench Science

So as a bicycle enthusiast, Interbike is always a great time of online enjoyment, drooling, or dreaming of new bikes, parts, or apparels. This year, it was no different. There were TONS of new items being displayed, and it definitely brings the phrase "a little kid in a big candy shop" into full effect.

With that said... LET'S GET STARTED!!

BMC-Racing Impec with Shimano Di2. Worth every penny!
First day: Outdoor Demo! More after the break.

Happy Monday everyone!

Before we get into the bike goodies we saw this past week at Interbike, lets keep our Monday spirits up with this cool short video!

Who would've thought that 4" between you legs would look this good?!

Get your mind out of the gutter and take in what this phenomenal bike has to offer!

This is a great example of how 4" travel 26" XC bike can look: fast, nimble, lightweight and quite beautiful!

East meets West.

The way to enlightenment is a path of simplicity.

Vamoots Di2 .....Breathe in through your nose...and out through your mouth.

ContourROAM, new wave of sport cameras!

Hmm.... time for a new camera?

We'll get more hands-on at Interbike, but for now... here's a little taste of what it can do.

For a camera that can do all this and priced at $199 MSRP? Who's ready for some pre-orders??
