Shimano Dura-Ace R9100

The worst-kept secret in the bike business, as it usually is, the new DA has now been released on the eve of the Tour. GCN goes behind the scenes. TL;DR: a power meter, and Dura Ace level hydraulic disc brake.

Nice, my LBS might require that I bring my own mop to clean up the drool.

Brexit for BIkes

Britain's stupidity and the ass-backwardness of the global bike industry means huge bike/kit discounts. Read how to get them.
Thanks to "Brexit," buying cycling gear just got a whole lot cheaper.

RIP Bill Cunningham

When I decided to take and share better photographs on Bike Hugger, Bill Cunningham’s work informed the street style. That work led to publishing mirrorless websites, and freelancing for Digital Photo, Digital Photo Mag, and Shutterbug. Today Bill died at age 87. Quotes from the Times obituary are below and a link to a feature about his life. So many greats have been lost this year….

"Bill Cunningham, the street-style photographer whose photo essays for The New York Times memorialized trends ranging from fanny packs to Birkin bags, gingham shirts and fluorescent biker shorts, died Saturday in New York. He was 87."

"In his nearly 40 years working for The Times, Mr. Cunningham operated both as a dedicated chronicler of fashion and as an unlikely cultural anthropologist, one who used the changing dress habits of the people he photographed to chart the broader shift away from formality and toward something more diffuse and individualistic. In the process, he turned into something of a celebrity himself."

Discarded Bikes

First a wheel, a seat, and then the entire fork disappears until there’s nothing left but a sorry frame and a chain rusting on the sidewalk.
By the numbers, the University of Minnesota remains the epicenter of the Twin Cities’ bike scene. It’s also the place where crappy bicycles are constantly abandoned.

In Tulsa, when Parking Enforcement actually shows up (which...it's really rare, since just three meter maids handling somewhere in the neighborhood of 3000 miles of onstreet parking throughout the entire city), they're tagged with a $25 ticket (which, yeah, basically that's not gonna stick unless you got some ancient ride that still has a Tulsa bike tag from God knows when on it) if parked more than 24 hours on the street or since the last ticket. Once they've ticketed it three times, they send Streets and Expressways out with a tool truck to impound the bike.

Story
Tagline
The joy, fun, and challenges of life on a bike. Bike Hugger® Magazine is available on iTunes and the Web.
Introduction

Bike Hugger® is bike culture blogged. As a group blog, with different voices, we cover diverse topics, but the bike centers us. You won’t find a marketing box to put us in or a label to slap onto what we do. Much of it is in the moment and we try to do interesting, epic stuff.

We also believe the bike is a connector with web designers, developers, and creative professionals. That’s why you’ll find us at events like SXSW with our Mobile Socials 

For the past 8 years we’ve built an audience on our blog and in social channels, like TwitterG+InstagramFlickrFacebook, and Tumblr(s). We publish photos on Flickr, videos on YouTube, and podcasts on iTunes

Magazine

Each month in our magazine we cover diverse topics in longform with the bike centering us. We believe it's a connector and the context for what we write about. We chase interesting, epic stuff and share our opinions about what we've ridden and where. Subscription revenues directly support the writing, editing, and production of our Magazine. It’s ad free and published monthly on iTunes and the Web.

A Big Tip Jar

Tugboat Yards is a platform for publishers to get support directly from readers for ad-free content and we use it like a big tip jar. It helps us pay our mechanics, editors, and photographers, or underwrite a whole issue if you're a big tipper.
