Fezzari Abajo Peak Pro Build Up

As you may remember, the Wiki Peak Comp suffered a small fracture to the bottom bracket. The folks from Fezzari were cool enough to send us an upgraded replacement frame. I began the build up about two days ago by removing the old parts, cleaning them and then installing them onto the Abajo Peak.   Here’s…

Fezzari Abajo Peak

As you may already know we’ve been riding the Fezzari Wiki Peak. Well sad to say that I was a bit rough on her and I cracked the bottom bracket. It wasn’t anything serious, just a hairline fracture that started from the outer part of the BB and traveled to the weld. So I emailed…

Fell From The Same Tree

I was just checking out some of the cool pictures Randy posted from City Island. But I don’t know if you guys have noticed, but I just realized Randy and I take some of the same style photos….   Here’s what I’m talking about.   RL’s picture of the Fezzari Wiki Peak   Randy’s picture…

Fend Off the Sugar Plump Fairy

With all the holiday eats and treats that have been bombarding us and the cold weather of winter, its hard not to say no to a few pieces of Cousin Mary’s fudge brownies and candied yams. What about Eggnog? Oh man….only once a year do I get to taste the beverage from heaven…..and when I…

Fezzari Riding in Big Bear

This past weekend, a few of my buddies and I decided to get away from the chaotic life of OC. So I packed up my car with some change of clothes, food and ofcourse, the Fezzari Wiki Peak Comp. After driving for about an hour and a half, we got to our cabin. Later that…

Fezzari First Impression

Just yesterday I had a chance to test out the Fezzari Wiki Peak Comp out on the street and on the local trail. On the street the Wiki Peak is as smooth as a road bike. The front and back suspension makes the ride so much more comfortable than a hybrid or any other commuter…

RPM Cyclery Grand Opening

This past weekend Moe and I packed up his truck and my little SUV full of the products that we’ve been reviewing. Then we drove out to Lake Elsinore where RPM Cyclery was having their Grand Opening. Check out the photos below. Moe, Scott Finch (shop owner) and RL The Commute By Bike Booth The…

The Bike-Friendliest Little Town in America

I’m sitting in Bites on Broadway in Skagway, Alaska, a hundred-year-old saloon-cum-coffee house, watching tourists walk down the wooden boardwalks. For every dozen tourists, there’s a local guide biking past. The guides look lean compared to the typically tubby cruise ship passengers. They ride up to the post office mailbox across Broadway to drop off…

Go Back to the Tricycle: My Own Personal Elf Quest

Call me Cutter. A few days ago I chanced to drive up out of the Chesapeake mudflats to the Carolina foothills, where I found a taste of the future in a cherry red, hot rod hybrid trike. If bicycling is the future of transportation, then the velomobile is the future of bicycling: the epitome of…

DRIVE Act Motors Through the Senate

If you bet against the Senate to pass the DRIVE Act before the federal transportation program ran out of funding on July 31st, it’s time to get your wallet out. Right at the deadline, and right before breaking for its annual August recess, the Senate approved the comprehensive transportation bill that includes at least three…

The Multimodal Cat – Bike, Bus, and Light Rail in Phoenix

I normally have a dream bike commute. My eight mile early morning trip into the office is a mere 200 foot gain in elevation. When I get to work, the showers at my gym are less than a hundred paces from the secure, locked conference room where I park my bike. When I head home…

JSK: 'What's good for Trek is good for America'

Janette Sadik-Khan is the rock star of transportation bureaucrats, not just because she is the current Commissioner of the Department of Transportation in America’s largest city. But that has something to do with it. Embarrassing confession: I’ve passed up the opportunity to see Sadik-Khan two previous times. I mean, how exciting could a transportation bureaucrat…

My Bikey Christmas

I get bike-themed stuff for Christmas. No surprise. I bet you do too. This year, I opened a gift from my wife, which she thought was a small metal sculpture — a wall hanging. I noticed that there is no loop on the back to receive a hanging hook. And I also noticed something strange…

The Mayan Apocalypse and Cycling Irrationality

Today is December 21, 2012. The Mayan Apocalypse has not happened. But it’s early in the day as I write this, and there’s still plenty of time for solar storms, a geomagnetic reversal, a surprise collision by a Ninja planet, or whatever. I’m not counting on it. My attitude is akin to Brent Cohrs, who…

Led Astray by the Google Gal

Over two years ago, Google Maps added bicycling navigation directions to the application for Android smartphones. At first it was pretty buggy, and one of the complaints was it generated more automobile routes than bicycling routes. For that reason, I put off testing it and it just fell off my to-do radar. I used Google…

BluesCat's Totally Credible, Not-Self-Serving Bike Poll

BluesCat is a resident of Phoenix, Arizona, who originally returned to bicycling in 2002 in order to help his son get the Boy Scout Cycling merit badge. His bikes sat idle until the summer of 2008 when gas prices spiked at over $4.00 per gallon. Since then, he has become active cycling, day-touring, commuting by…

The Triumph of Capital Bikeshare

On the last day of my trip to Washington DC, I had a big agenda. Never mind the record-breaking temperature. It may have been the most stupid day ever to ride all over The District of Columbia, but it was the final day of my three-day membership with Capital Bikeshare, and I intended to get…
