Party! - The Gear change

I don't really realise it myself yet but my last days have come at the shop that I started almost 8 years ago. It has been an absolute pleasure doing this all those years but the time has come for me to move back to The Low Lands. Luckily I have found someone more than excited to continue Gear in the person of Craig. I started the shop from being a bike messenger and Craig has also been working on the bike here in Brisbane for years so it's cool that I have found Craig, who wants to continue the shop in the same style, a local community bike shop focussing on urban cycling and get as many people riding in style as possible.

Watch the Kiwi's

An unlikely alliance with a world leading Kiwi yachting company may have produced a medal-winning secret weapon for our track cyclists.Cycling New Zealand has unveiled bikes they believe will have a revolutionary impact on the Rio Olympic velodrome. 

Working in secret, Cycling New Zealand combined with High Performance Sport New Zealand, manufacturers Avanti, wheelwrights Southern Spars, aerodynamic experts Kinetic Simulation and Auckland University's wind tunnel in an effort to produce track bikes capable of delivering gold.  More here and here.

STRAIGHT FROM THE FISHCAM: Fixed 42

Bombtrack rider Stefan “Fish” Vis and his Needle bike got 16th at Rad Race's “Fixed42 World Championchips” in Berlin – a brilliant result, taking into consideration not having a helping team in the back. See Fish’s last 90seconds before crossing the finishing line.

La Petite Course Crit

We wanted to offer Paris the Crit she deserved. Offer a race that would meet the high-expectations of fixed-gear fans, but also introduce this truly unique discipline to newcomers as well. Our ambition was to offer the most beautiful race to the most beautiful city in the world (we are Parisians after all…). A spectacular event, yet responsible. The road is long, and this objective tremendously difficult to achieve, when we look at all the amazing Crits taking place all over the world today. However, in all thanks to you, this first edition of La Petite Course was a true success. A huge thanks to everybody.

Cardiel in Tokyo

With his ties in skateboarding and cycling John is always globetrotting the world to some of the most rad places. He skipped over to the Chrome Tokyo hub a couple months back to spin records at their grand opening before taking to the streets. VHS Mag caught up with him for a quick spot on riding in Tokyo, music and what he’s got coming down the pipe…
