After testing out the new bottom bracket today, I have a new appreciation for bottom brackets in general. It feels a million times better than the old one - much stiffer and more responsive.
To share some of the cool bike related things I found this week...
Trek is doing a fundraiser for the World Bicycle Relief where they'll match any amount that you donate. To make things even better, Fat Cyclist is having a contest where you get entered when you donate, and can win some awesome bike gear.
If you're into trying out new gear for riding, check out Bike Loot. For about ten bucks each month, you get a box full of goodies containing everything from "gels, bars, hydration, and maintenance." Seems like a cool way to get exposed to a lot of products.
Bike Tinker is a great blog about, well, tinkering with bikes. There are a lot of cool fixes and some really clever ideas to be found here.
Combining two of my favorite things, Cupcake Ride is a blog dedicated to bicycles and cupcakes. Lots of great photos about bicycle adventuring in Toronto, and of course organized rides that visit lots of cupcakeries.
New Kit Day is making cycling kits right here in the Bay Area, and I dig the designs they have. Also, much of the promotional material was shot at Hellyer!
And finally, Hipster Sled might be one of my new favorite terms.
That's all I got!
