Exclusive: The Rooster Of Marcelo

09.24.2013

The thousands of bunkers that contained the internet’s servers fell silent, the whir of the digital processing stopped forever. Laptops, home computers, network hard drives and cell phones all became obsolete. All just empty plastic boxes that did nothing, contained nothing, provided nothing. The glass screens that had been caressed, stroked and fawned over no longer reflected back the hopes and desires of the bearers. Instead, nothing.

Review: Truvativ BlackBox Athlete Series Bars

09.23.2013

Handlebars are extremely personal--everyone has a different take on the perfect width, amount of rise and backsweep, so what I like might not be what you need or want. What Truvativ's Athlete Series has going for it, is that it offers you some more choices to find the bar that offers the best fit and feel for you.

Interbike Gallery: From the Tradeshow Floor–Day 3

09.21.2013

Sometimes to understand what something is, you have to see what it isn’t. This year Interbike is lacking the depth of weird inventions and pneumatic blonde booth babes that it has in the past. Is this a sign of the recession hitting entrepreneurial trailblazers, financial imperatives serving to separate the wheat from the chaff, or is it just that now every hopeful, desperate mastermind has focused their talents on e-bikes?
