01. Bishop Bikes Jinbok’s Cyclocross

“Chris Bishop recently assembled a rare set of tubes by Italy’s Gilco Design, creating a cyclocross frame for an LA customer. The unusual profile lends a distinctive touch to the frame, to which Chris has also applied his individual style. There’s a fascinating DNA woven into the molecules of those tubes, inextricably tied to the Italian passion for design and a dynasty of high quality bicycle frames. Angelo Columbo formed Columbus Tubi in 1919, focusing on the burgeoning bicycle sector. However, during the 1920s and 30s, Columbus was also a leading manufacturer of furniture in the ‘rationalist’ style, creating pieces by luminaries such as Breuer, Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe.” (cycleexif)

“Photos of the Vuelta a Colombia in the early 1960s, by Horacio Gil Ochoa.” Unbelievable men. (cyclinginquisition)

03. Conversations On the Coast (above)

“By way of example, allow us to introduce Nick Hand, who has spent some time on the road over the past few years, and has far more to show for it than just a beautifully broken-in B17. Between 2009 and 2010, for over four months and more than 6000 miles, he rode a leisurely tour of the coasts of Britain and Ireland. While making his journey, he sought out artisans and craftspeople living or working in his path, and spent some time taking photos of them at their work, as well recording what they had to say.” (brooksblog)
