Lance Fixing a Flat and Reviewed

Well, if he's back in the news cycle from a video with +Outside Magazine 

Then please do read +Matthew Haughey's review of the Armstrong Lie in Issue 11 of our magazine and let us know if you think it's creepy or what.

he's never been my favorite but his existence paved the way for millions of people to have hope fighting cancer -- he made cycling big in the US again .....his name has resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars for research.....should he get a free pass -----hell no BUT he hopefully will one day stop being treated like he's the only one to do this....the list of pros in every sport who were busted AND admitted it ----olympions etc.  and many to this day still refuse to admit it....I give him credit for finally admitting it!

Tune Your Bike with a Phone

We're just gonna have to see if this actually works. It's uses an iPhone app and camera with targets.

The multidimensional shape of each target along with the paw dots allow the targets to be identified and located in 3-dimensional space with a precision better than 0.001 inches from a single image. The distance and angles between components in the same image can be measured precisely with this method. Comparing positions of the bicycle components over multiple images provides distance traveled and the system records the positions of all major derailleur components at necessary shift points.

And sounds like lots of math and engineering going into aligning the derailer pulley to the cog.

Hmm,  Lemme count.  Buy IPhone ,  buy Otto, install all the funny stuff  and get your deraileur adjusted in 15 minutes.  Cool ;)  Somehow I manage it with just 5 mm inbus wrench, philips screw driver and pliers in just about 10 minutes.   Yet another useless IPhone app for hipsters.  But wait, they all ride fixies ;)

Sea Otter 14 Gallery

As I said to +Patrick Brady , "It’s like a constant stream of bike consciousness. "Oh look a hot bike then a world champion, and a race, and beer. Then there's Ned, who when asked about the scene, observed, "Fat Bike Action!" And hey, some kids doing BMX tricks while women raced road. So how do you capture that? By bouncing around, like a kid in a bike bouncy house and taking photos.

Of the 406 shots, here are the 21 best and products that interested us the most. Like, XTR, CX1, and the Ergon seatpost.

This bag is so huge, it’s like a monolith to gear and travel being discovered in our backyard.

Terpstra's Winning Roubaix Details

Difference between Terpstra's bike and the +Specialized Bicycles  Roubaix SL4, +DL Byron our Publisher, has been riding since the Fall, is Force 22 instead of the Red 22 spec. When raced locally, the fenders are removed and the fast, Zipp Firecrests replace the 30s. Force is SRAM's value group, with all the features of Red , at a more affordable price.

Between the two, there's a $3K price difference. Terpstra's race-winning Roubaix is about $9K and our parking-lot crit version is $6K.

Groupset: SRAM RED 22
Shifters: SRAM RED 22 DoubleTap with Reach adjust
Crankset: Specialized (175mm crank arm length) with SRAM RED 22 chainrings – 53×46*
Front derailleur: SRAM RED 22 Yaw with chain spotter
Rear derailleur: SRAM RED 22 – Short cage
Cassette: SRAM PG1170 11-26
Brakes: SRAM RED Aerolink
Chain: SRAM RED 22

Bike Culture Blogged
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.
