Bikes and Pasta at Il Corvo

cheap bridesmaid dresses

Hampsten Cycles & 333fab are taking advantage of Pioneer Square’s First Thursday Art Scene and will be hanging out with a bunch of bikes and such with Chef Mike Easton at his joint Il Corvo (217 James St).

Mike makes the best pasta I’ve had in Seattle and Max and Steve will oil-wrestle at 8pm to see who has the better Seattle-based bike line. Food, bikes, booze, and wrestling – are we in Portland yet?

Revised numbers

I’m always discovering new features in BikeCAD – this shows the latest – so let’s see your numbers for your next build. (Please let me know what saddle is being used on your bike…)

Cute as a sack of kittens: new brakes!

From Bike Radar:

For 2014, TRP will add a new RG957 long-reach, dual-pivot road rim brake caliper for the growing gravel road market. Claimed weight is 167g per wheel with forged and machined aluminum arms, an integrated barrel adjuster and quick-release cam, angle-adjustable cartridge-type pad holders, and stainless steel hardware. Reach is listed at 47-57mm and suggested retail price is US$180 for a complete front and rear set.

Andy in Sports Illusrated

Nice piece here from Austin Murphy – it focuses on the 1988 Giro but adds a good overview of Andy’s career including some stories I’ve never seen published. The bit on his year at Banesto is slightly eye-opening but not too surprising. Yes, there are one or two inaccuracies…
