Oh hell yeah, this looks good.
Here’s the SVENNESS 4.2 Teaser from Koksijde.
This is rad! Two of my favorite brands have come together and recruited a cream of the crop fixed crit racing team. See way more over at Team Cinelli Chrome.
Track bike, fixed-gear, brakeless. No freewheel, no stops. Creative and competitive. This is Team Cinelli Chrome. Different from others living cyclism. No pro-director, masseurs or official mechanics. An independent, semi-organized posse, perfectly self-sufficient, total autonomy travelers. It takes shape to race six international Fixed Gear Criteriums, and blends into the urban fabric after the races. A handful of characters borrowed from the city: bike messengers, track champions, and former Pro Tour mechanics.
Fixed Gear Criteriums are not a fad. They’re a direct outcome of the progression of the fixed-gear movement. This phenomenon was arguably born in San Francisco among the bike messengers and is now well established all around the world as a way of commuting and communicating. A way of being: free, creative, independent.
Cinelli and Chrome have contributed to the dawn of this world. Before it was fashionable. Against any rational reason or strategic marketing idea. People thought we were fools. Today they chase. Joined by common values and mutual respect for making great products, Cinelli and Chrome are proud to support Team Cinelli Chrome.

The 100th Tour De France is well under way and while I usually don’t like to take much time covering it, I just couldn’t pass up these photos over on Boston.com. The top is an aerial view of the peloton during the 3rd stage from Ajaccio to Calvi which is on the French Mediterranean Island of Corisca.
The second photo (thanks DSC) shows some artwork on the top tube of Peter Sagan’s Cannondale. I’ve been watching the tour in the background during work and have always enjoyed July solely for this reason. Where have you been watching Le Tour? Norris sent me here which has been helpful but if you’ve got a better source/connection please feel free to share!

Here’s some inspiration to help you kick-start that winter training you’ve been putting off (myself as well): Mark Cavendish tells you what it takes to keep raking in the W’s.
