If you could see the details on the downtube, you'll notice that it's very intricate shapes in different brushes. I'll see if I can't procure a couple photos of it before it's shipped off to Massan...

TCB Party Recap

The TCB party was awesome. Everyone old and new came by and I even got to see some faces I haven't seen in years. Too bad Dear Mom's shut down at 11pm, but thanks to Sean John for opening his spot for the after party. Thanks for another couch pass out!

While everyone recovers and eventually gets photos out (the one of me looking like Spiderman doesn't count), here are John's photos that highlight that TCB isn't just a business, it's a family. Who knows that feel?

Quoc Pham Launch Party

This is not about SF. This is about awesome cycling shoes. Quoc Pham Cycling Shoes are top notch fashionable cycling shoes made for everyday use. They look less like your clipless Sidis and more like a pair of classic Italian lace ups. Nothing beats leather in comfort and wear; try a pair of synethics and leather, and you'll notice the difference.

And if you are out in Taipei, GO!


Anton Bennett rides for All City Cycles

Saturday night, I kept telling Anton in a drunken rage "Talk to All City. Get your bio up and let's get you working." Today, I get to read Anton's profile about his All City's Rider Bio page next to the likes of Austin Horse and Christina Peck. Congrats, bro! I feel swollen with pride right now as this has been a long time comin.


SF2G feels like a bicycle club, but has no real structure. For all commuters, and serious to non serious riders, there is a message board for anyone who wants to commute, but not alone. With 3 different options of skill level, anyone has a chance.

Thank God because it gets hella boring seeing sunshine, and beautiful scenery when you're not sharing it with others. If anyone rides up or down the Peninsula for work, contact this message board!


John Reiss Visits Cadence

John Prolly Got Jokes

This is John Prolly. That recent post about Cannondale reissuing the old track bikes? JOKES. They're hella funny. Commend him for stirring the hell outta the interwebz.

Cannondale Reissues the 92-95 Track Frames

I have to repost this. After their track stable wasn't selling well, Cannondale called Prolly. After some conversation, Prolly convinced Cannondale to go back to 93 and will be reissuing those models. Now here's my gripe:

- They're called Tarck 100.
- They will be made in Taiwan.
- Their complete bikes will come with Sun tubular rims.

For a company who rooted themselves on their aluminum craftsmanship in America, why not go all the way? Rather than listening to Prolly, Cannondales going with options that suit them. Regardless, I got a lot of respect for Prolly and I'm glad to see companies like Cannondale are listening to him.

Spotted at Prolly.
