2017 Scapin LTD SL ultralight carbon road bike

If you’re looking for something truly unique without suffering the wait times for a custom build, it’s hard to get much more exclusive than one of just twenty bikes to be offered. And, fortunately, the new Scapin LTD SL is more than just a bike with low serial numbers…it’s a comfortable, fast and darn good looking road bike, too.

North American Scapin importer Stage Race Distribution helped define this project’s parameters and walked it through production with the Italian brand. Then they brought this one down from Canada for us to ride. So, we took them through the rolling hills around Greensboro, NC, for 110+ miles over two days of riding, barbecue, Mexican food and local brews…

Kryptonite expands and improves Anti Theft Protection Offer to include more countries

Kryptonite messenger collection locks u lock (1)

Bike thieves suck. No matter the lock, it seems there’s always a chance of someone making off with your bike. To prevent that, companies like Kryptonite offer a range of locks that in most cases will keep your bike safe. As a bit of extra protection, Kryptonite has offered their Anti Theft Protection Offer since 1978 – a subscription based program that will get you some of the cost back if your bike should be stolen while using a Kryptonite product.

Now, the program is expanding to include even more countries and offer higher dollar amounts for replacement values depending on the lock model. You still have to register for the program within 30 days of purchasing your lock and there are a number of requirements for reimbursement, but in the event of a theft the possibility of getting any money back without bicycle theft insurance could be a huge benefit. Now covering 29 countries, the program is better than ever and may help you get up to $5,000 back if you use the highest security locks…

Pic-of-the-Day_Andrew-Moore_statue_Madonna-del-Ghisallo_Itlay

Andrew Moore sent in this photo from a recent cycling tour in Italy that he took with his brother and father to celebrate his dad’s 60th birthday. As he puts it, “These are the 3 Italian stallions we built up, in front of the statue next to the sanctuary of the Madonna del Ghisallo (the patron saint of cycling).” Check out another pic that Andrew also included after the break, looking back down to Lake Como to get a sense of the climb that the three came up. We were there back in October testing some new Vittoria wheels and tires as well and can certainly back up Andrew’s statement that “It’s a really incredible ride.”

We always love to see your photos and would like to show them to the world here on the Pic Of The Day. Send in your photo with a brief description here.
