The Unofficial Cycling Code of Conduct
i went for a ride today on a borrowed bike and gear since I'm away from home. my kit: trashed switchblade helmet from 2002, troy lee pajama pants with flames, wool turtle neck, fleece scarf (it was cold), white sports socks, street style 5.10s, and leather work gloves. i had an awesome ride, and the dog didn't bitch once about my appearance ;)

Opinion: Incremental Steps and Boring Times
forgive me for beating a dead horse, but if you can 3D print a car... http://venturebeat.com/2014/09/08/worlds-first-3d-printed-car-to-be-live-printed-assembled-during-imts-the-international-manufacturing-technology-show-2014-by-local-motors-cincinnati-incorporated-and-oak-ridge-national-laborator/

Opinion: Incremental Steps and Boring Times
what is my bold claim? that this *might* be possible in the future? that costs will come down? people are already 3D printing bicycles. but for now, they're plastic. factories in taiwan 3D print the frames so the companies and designers can see a real life mockup before making the carbon moulds. the frames can be built up with a full set of components, fork, shock, crank, headset etc, but obviously you can't ride them. I'm starting to feel like a leper here, but I don't think any of this is totally outrageous. it's not like i'm suggesting bikes will have mini fusion reactors for power next year... (even better than e-bikes!)

how's this for a giant leap forward: airless tires. maybe not perfect now, but possible for the future? why not? http://www.vitalmtb.com/videos/member/Mission-to-Mars-Britek-Tires-Airless-Unstoppable,27015/iceman2058,94

Opinion: Incremental Steps and Boring Times
predicting the future based on the past is poor protocol, although I agree, what we can foresee does seem like incremental improvements. that said what about being able to 3D print my own frame, and select my own geometry while I'm at it? I think that's in the cards at some point. that wouldn't be a small thing... some of the innovation that's coming may be things many of us don't want - e.g. electric bikes

Red Bull Rampage 2014: Canadian Bacon
Red Bull should let people donate during the webcast, and match whatever people give, with the money being split between all riders... Maybe a few of the other sponsors could match as well, or contribute...

Outdoor Demo 2014: No Boys Allowed
Duncan's a pretty cool guy, but he IS running out of real estate. May have to start coloring...
