Velo Orange Polyvalent – Freewheel Style

Ahhhhh. Bike riding is back on us.   We’ve been quiet over the past few months – skiing and work were getting in the way.  But, we’re back and ready to pedal.   One of the cool things we were working on over the winter is this new Velo Orange Polyvalent. There have been a […]

Better Late than Never – Sometimes

Happy New Year! Shoot, it’s the 8th, already (it was last night when I finished this)!  Well, it’s a new year and a new season.  The bike racks are off the car and in the basement, and the ski racks have taken their place atop the roof.  It was only a week and a half […]

Riding with a Friend

Well, Sunday was another amazing day for riding.  I was doing yard work, and kept watching people whip by on their road bikes.  The temps got to the cool side of perfect around 10:30/11:00, and I couldn’t stand being indoors.  I wanted to watch the Patriot’s game, but, there are so few days with weather […]

Indian Summer

No doubt we live in the strangest, and most likely, worst weather area of the country.  It’s not a complaint.  It’s a fact.  Jesus, we even have developed new names for weather events. Let’s face it, two weeks ago we had moderately warm days, cool nights – ideal Fall days in New Hampshire.  Then, work […]

Hunter Safety

Well, I guess it’s fall in New Hampshire.  That means hours of yard work, cooler temps, KILLER riding, and hunting season. I think about it all the time when I’m out riding this time of year.  But today, more than ever, it rang true.  Changing a flat out in the woods, we were listening to […]

​They’re not really orange at all.

But, these are some of the coolest damn bikes we’ve come across. Velo-Orange makes these incredible bikes in the tradition of the old European touring bikes.  The geometry is comfy, and made to be ridden for long hauls and big trips, or just for cruising around town and commuting to work or the store. One […]

A New Spin on the Way You Roll

“We made the shop lean, kept the work in proximity, and decreased human transportation in a big way, with very small changes”, says Garabed, “When I’m working at the repair station with a bicycle on the stand it’s very simple to put down the wrench and pick up the air mouse to page through the repair […]

Endurance Mountain Bike Rides – Heat be Damned!

Who enters these things? Now is the time of year when more and more endurance races are coming around.  Before this morning’s “training” ride at 7:00 because that’s when it’s cooler and less humid, I checked the weather reports – 77 degrees and 99% humidity.  No joke – 99% humidity.  I took this picture after […]
