Bike Lust

Currently spending too much time on bike websites. Not sure if I heard winter is starting. I've had my squishy bike out of action here for most of the fall, which I've also been traveling constantly throughout, so I'm yearning for some real deal mountain biking. Heading to Moab next week though.

Aluminum Tallboy with a big fork. Mmmmm. Fast but bomber.



Or, for the full monster bike effect, build a Stumpjumper frame with a Fox 34...


New GoPro

GoPro came out with a new version of their ubiquitous POV camera this week and it looks to build on the success of the original. I've always really appreciated their boxy form factor as opposed to the competition's more bullet like shapes because it encourages you to use the GoPro as more than just a helmet cam. You can use it for timelapses, plasticky-camera stills, all sorts of stuff. Before dropping my own personal example into Lake Bemidji this summer the GoPro was easily one of my very favorite tech pieces. Now there's an excuse to get a newer better one! This promo video they released along with the new camera does a great job showing the variety of shots and set-ups you can put together with this awesome little camera.

All the snow here in Colorado this morning has me missing the colors of California.
