Beat the Main Race

Never mess with Sunday (Beat the Main Race) from La Vidéothèque on Vimeo.

Here is a video sent to us by our fans from Montreal. Beat the Main is 11,5 km time trial race that starts at De la Commune street and finish at Boulevard Gouin (lot of climbing to do!). No doubt it is one of the hardest ”underground” races in Canada.

Custom New Balance

Must be nice to have friends in high places. Well… here is the result of having some friends that can get you a custom New Balance pair of M498 made to match IF custom frameset. Check out Independent Fabrication site for more info on these bad boys.. I think it is about time we should get Urban1Cycle shoes.

Krop pedal straps

With fixed gear and cycling in general being more and more popular every day, we see more and more small independent companies popping up all over the world with some cool looking products. Here is one such example. Small Korean company Krop makes some cool looking handmade pedal straps out of recycled materials. So many stiles and so many colors to choose from… I think I will go for leopard white.

Review: FEEDBACK Sports Mechanic Repair Stand..

Photobucket
A few months ago.. We were packing up the  Nakanari / Urban1cycle bike to head to Reign in Orlando for a exhibit.. Around two weeks before the show, we were in a pickle not knowing how we would mount and show the bike at the exhibit.. Then a magical box appeared at our door step, from the awesome guys at FeedBack Sports..  I’ll be honest, I never heard of FeedBack before receiving this stand, but I have to admit I was soooo impressed with there product.

We got our grubby hands on the Sports Mechanic Repair stand by FeedBack, we loved the matte black look to the stand. FeedBack’s signature color is red on there stand’s, but we needed a matte black so it wouldn’t take away from the bike, yet do the job..  The mechanic repair stand is super light weight, only weighing in at 12.6lbs. It can hold up to 65lbs , which would be a tank of a bike. The stand can adjust it’s height from 42″-65″… so no more back breaking leaning over to the ground to work on your bike..

The Bullet

Here is a simple but handy invention by Stephen Davis Phillips, a simple keychain attachment for pump adapters. I know I lost probably about 20 of the pump adapters. I tried keeping them on my valves, I tried putting them in my wallet and still somehow I manage to loose every one of them. I really should’ve just bought  another air pump but instead I was being  cheap and lazy. Well… no more digging for valve adapters in my garage. This simple invention keeps your adapter on your keychain. It has a solid brass feel to it and so far I haven’t lost even one pump adapter since it is attached to my keys. You can purchase it directly for about $7.00 from bulletkeychain.com
