Let hear it for our boys! Wolfpack Hustle went, they saw, they conquered. East Coast Messenger Stage Race, Boston to DC, open to anyone on a bike, any route you want to take and LA smashed it. Wolfpack Hustle swept the poduim, with Aram Dellalian Grabbing 1st place, Fabian Vazquez and Jon Budinoff took second and third. Fabian got two stage wins,on the first day and the last day. Super proud of Turtle and the cyclist he is becoming. Read more about the race here at Bikeradar. Congrats guys, way to bring the win home!
I have to hear the story behind this photo. The boys fording a river in Maryland… That’s how you pull in the win.
Living and riding in San Francisco, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many great cyclists. Some are fast, others ride with style & there are those who choose to affect the very culture that inspires them. is a group of female cyclists in SF who have come together with a common interest to, “Commemorate the city’s amazing ability to make lasting impressions on its natives, especially its ability to influence people to form & participate in the growth of subcultures and specifically that of track biking” says co-found & rider Kat Tourtelot. As is with many sports, cycling has long been a male-dominated activity, but these ladies are aiming to make a name for themselves & all women alike. For the 2011 Bicycle Film Festival, Fast Co. produced a short film showcasing their speed & talent on the streets of San Francisco.
Over the next year Fast Co. hopes to inspire female cyclists from all over through organized women’s rides, races and with a feature-length film. We love what these ladies are doing for the cycling scene and can’t wait to see what they have in-store for us.
Wheelmen & Co have some good looking bags dropping for Autumn. Italian fabric… Lovely.
Details: Italy is known for great wine, great fashion, and great quality. Wheelmen & Co. releases our superior Italian fabric series that feature a houndstooth and Italian poplin for the Minuteman. These “Minuteman bags” are part of our Harvest / Autumn 2011 collection. These bags are limited and available only in our online store. Wheelmen are also proud sponsors of this Halloween Alleycat.
LDG dropped their Pursuit MK3 frame set. We got to see these up close at Interbike this year. Pretty impressive stuff coming out of LDG this year.
Details: During the time we were developing our Pursuit MK2, we were also working on a variant of the frameset, now dubbed the Pursuit MK3. While the two frames are fairly similar, the primary differences are in the rear brake bridge and seat stay curvatures.
We’ve modeled the geometry after a dual 700C setup and removed the neck-breaking angles that traditional pursuit frames sport. The fork was designed to match this frameset, featuring intricate CNC details and embossed fork caps, to flow with the rest of the frame design.
