JOIN app makes group rides easy to find (and create) worldwide

JOIN app lets you easily create cycling routes and share with friends for group rides

We’ve all been there, trying to organize a group ride with people joining in along the route or needing to make sure everyone knows where to go if the pack breaks into groups of differing abilities. JOIN is a new app that makes it incredibly easy to create group rides, share the route or find one in a new area while traveling.

JOIN is a free app that brings a focus on the social nature of riding. Within the app, you can invite others to join your ride, share the route and even create a route by simply clicking on way points and saving it. You can also search an area for group rides and riders, scroll through the results and click to join. Even if there’s no current group ride going on, you can see the routes and follow along, seeing other riders’ ratings for those rides. Even better? The whole thing integrates with Garmin’s GPS cycling computers to put the data on your dashboard…

Pioneer power meters for Campagnolo, FSA & Cannondale now shipping, MTB coming in December

pioneer cycling power meters for campagnolo FSA and cannondale road cranks now shipping

Pioneer continues to show they’re serious about cycling by announcing models for Campagnolo, FSA and Cannondale road cranksets, plus options for Shimano’s latest Dura-Ace, XT and XTR models.

The upgrade to working with the latest Dura-Ace R9100 comes as no surprise since Pioneer sponsors several top pro teams and athletes. That one, along with versions for the Campagnolo alloy cranks, is now shipping in both single and dual leg versions. The Cannondale SiSL2 and Si cranks will come in left-side only options for now and are also shipping. Pricing without the crank arms is $499 for single leg and $999 for dual. Single leg measurement comes from the left crank arm and can be upgraded to add right leg at a later date.

The FSA SL-K carbon road version and mountain bike versions will start shipping in December for Trail XT and XTR cranks. That’s not all they showed at Interbike, though, check our coverage for a look at some prototype meters that capture data from the rest of your bike (and you).

scicon_aerocomfort-road-3-0-tsa_bahrainmerida

We’ve been seeing lots of press releases from the new Bahraini pro cycling team that Vincenzo Nibali will ride for in 2017, but to be honest we’re not too concerned over which domestiques and sports directors will make the new team function day to day. On the other hand, sometimes buried in the PR is an interesting tidbit. This one takes the form of a new pair of bike travel cases from premium Italian bag maker Scicon. The new pro team will be traveling with new Scicon Aerocomfort Road and Triathlon 3.0 TSA Bike Travel Bags, as well as the updated Race Rain Bags and several others, all in their characteristic red. Jump past the break for a look inside the bags and a hint of what new tech they bring…

Stair step over the Alps & slide down the other side with 8bar’s crit team

8bar-team_road2milan_tease

8bar-team_road2milan_tease

Just a quick one here as we’ve seen the silly fixed gear antics from the 8bar crew before in their multi-day crossings of the Alps. But this year with their more organized (or at least better kitted out) crit racing team, they drove from their Berlin HQ down to Milan for the Red Hook Criterium at the start of October. The 8bar Team couldn’t resist pulling the van over as the hit the base of the Alps again to pedal up and over the Splügen Pass as they went from Switzerland across to Italy on their way to the Red Hook Criterium Milan 2016. Hop past the break to watch them huff it over the top, then skid precariously down the other side, as well as the official director’s cut from the race itself…

silca_t-handle-folio_premium-professional-shop-quality-hex-allen-torx-wrenches_bike-repair-stand

Silca is aiming to solidify their place in the lust-worthy tool department with a new set of sliding hex wrenches and to expand on their premium floor and frame pumps with a surprisingly affordable mini alternative. The T-Handle Folio sits pretty firmly in the professional tool kit category with a wide range of hex & torx bits and a premium pricetag, but no doubt there are plenty of home mechanics out their who would love to have this setup on their wish list. At the same time, while Silca’s track pumps have hit such crazy levels that offering one at $235 became affordable, they’ve gone the other way now with the new aluminum body Tattico mini-pump that puts quality into a classic style of pump that can get tossed in a pocket or clipped next to a bottle cage…
