Get amped for the weekend with a History of Cycling Anime

cyclign-anime-history

OK, so Anime. There’s a topic that will produce a mixed bag of comments when it pops up in mixed conversation. But this is Cycling Anime, and we are all cycling nerds here, so why not nerd-out over a surprisingly detailed look at how cycling has been portrayed in anime over the last few years. It’s Friday afternoon and hopefully you’ve got most of your work done for the week. So hop past the break to spend more than 12 minutes taking a peek at some interesting (and weird) cycling animation that you might (probably) have missed…

Cinelli goes from track to training with aluminum Tipo Pista

tipopista_bici

Even if your fixed gear bike spends most of its life on the velodrome, you still probably want to ride on the streets. The new Cinelli Tipo Pista is an interesting take on a track racer with Cinelli referring to it as a kind of winter training bike for the track and street. On one hand the bike has geometry that’s a blend of track and fixed gear crit, but on the other the bike includes front and rear brakes and 25mm tires to make city life a bit more bearable. If you’re looking for a bike that’s equally at home on the track or the street, the Tipo Pista might be worth a look…

If you’ve ridden up in British Columbia, then you know. Their definition of cross country is a little different than most of that in North America. Often jokingly referred to as ‘Canadian Cross Country,’ nowhere is that more evident than in the incredibly challenging BC Bike Race. That makes bike selection even more important as you need something that will hold up to the challenging terrain of the BC trails, but still something that is efficient enough to get you through the grueling 7 day stage race. Or as Andreas Hestler puts it, “you pick the wrong weapon for a tough race like the BC Bike Race, you’re gonna find some holes in the program.”

This year, Rocky Mountain had two secret weapons to take on the race – local racer Quinn Moberg, and the new Element XC Race bike…

Wittson Ti Cycles makes the Bestia even bester with a few key updates

Wittson Bestia std 2017, in snow

Earlier this year at NAHBS Bikerumor checked out Wittson Ti Cycles’ Bestia, the company’s 27.5” or 29” wheeled cross-country racer and their only frame that comes in a stock configuration. While Wittson is always happy to customize any frame, some key updates to the standard Bestia were recently announced.

While they used to be optional add-ons, Wittson’s wishbone seatstays and Paragon’s Syntace X-12 thru axle dropouts will now be included on every frame. The 2017 Bestia’s geometry has also been tweaked to provide a racier ride versus the outgoing models. Finally, Wittson can now offer the addition of a Pinion gearbox at a much, much cheaper price than before…

Lemurlock introduces a cable lock with built-in front and rear lights

Lemurlock on top tube

With all the crazy technology we enjoy these days, integration is definitely a big trend. While it’s not exactly a high-tech example, the creators of Lemurlock figured it would be convenient to secure both your head and tail lights while locking up your bike at the same time. Losing your lights is bad enough for the replacement costs, let alone the added risks of having to pedal home in the dark without them.

The Lemurlock combines three commuter essentials into one package, but definitely invites some discussion over the pros and cons of providing simplicity this way. Is the Lemurlock suitable for your needs, or are you still thinking a separate lock and lights seem like a better option? Read on for all the details…
