Accuweather Trails


I'm so excited to be back in State College with my mountain bike, the trails here are endless.  Today I rode the Accuweather trail, it's not huge but it has some crazy turns and lot's of rad obstacles.  The photo is pretty crummy but I was having too much fun to take others.  More trails to come, I'm headed to Rothrock State Forest this weekend.

Bicycles and the Sartorially Inclined

Photo by The Sartorialist

This photo never gets old.  Tall bikes are awesome, the light is perfect and the rider is lovin' life.  It doesn't get much better.

Erik Jonsson's Pinarello Stelvio


If I had the means to build a road bike right now, it would definitely look a lot like this.  Old Steel, primarily modern components and zipps; such a killer combo.  The bike belongs to Erik Jonsson of The 5th Floor, for more images and a complete parts list, check out their site.

Chemical Brothers: Velodrome

Chemical Brothers 'Velodrome' - London 2012 from CrystalCG International on Vimeo.

Although this video has been making it's rounds, it is absolutely worth another post. I have been a fan of the Chemical Brothers for a long time and the soundtrack for the movie Hanna was the icing on the cake. Chemical Brothers do the Olympics and man do they kill it; groovy.

New Hat Day: Peonfx


I finally got my Peonfx 5-panel camp hat yesterday and I'm really stoked on it. It's a nice fit and the fabric is really cool plus it came with some interesting packaging and a few stickers. Check out more cool Peonfx swag on there store!

Shiftin' Heads Not Gears

As you may have noticed, I have been out of commission for almost a month now, but not to fear! I have been really busy between work and traveling; things are finally starting to settle down and I will have more time for Crank it! A friend showed me the original post at the beginning of June and I'm really diggin' this guy's style (especially the first shot). Leader was an interesting choice for a fashion photo-shoot especially with the flat bars and white tires; questionable.  I think something like this would have been more appropriate. For more of the original spread check Adentro Style.

And then there is this...thanks to Real Men's Wear
