Indy Fab: The 40th Anniversary Phil Wood Ti Track Bike


The guys at Indy Fab have quite the stable brewing for the 2010 NAHBS. They were commissioned by the team at Phil Wood to fabricate 41 (#00 - #40) limited-edition titanium track bikes in honor of Phil Wood's 40th anniversary. There are tons of Phil Wood logos cut out of literally every component on this bike. It's really over-the-top. Luckily for those of you who will not be in attendance at the NAHBS, they snapped some shots of bike #00 before packing it up.

Check the rest out at the IF Blog.

Peugeot B1K Bicycle Concept




"Peugeot B1K Bicycle Concept | Since its invention, the bicycle really hasn’t changed much. Its basic components remain the same– a pair of wheels, a crank-driven drivetrain, a frame, a seat and some handlebars. The components themselves have evolved, but the basic song has gone unchanged. The design team at Peugeot Bikes, however, have created a bike concept so alien to our eyes that change may be on the horizion. The Peugeot B1K Bicycle Concept takes on the traditional bike format by adding a chain-free drivetrain, removing the down tube and giving it a fierce new design that is as progressive as they come.

The Peugeot B1K Bike Concept is a carbon-constructed race bike built for the track or the urban pavement. The rider’s torso is angled downward toward the pavement ahead, reducing drag and providing improvements in weight balance and power transfer. The chainless drivetrain looks amazing, but details on its efficiency have not been revealed. The lack of a down tube on the frame leads to questions about its rigidity, as the bike may flex during use. Any racer will tell you– as light as a feather and as stiff as a board, the better. But the design itself leads us to give Peugeot the benefit of any doubt, as this design is easily the sexiest we’ve seen yet in 2010, and high up in the running (er, riding) for 2009."

How to properly lock up your bike

So I was at the Century City mall yesterday and after about 20 minutes of riding around looking for a place to lock up, I finally found their bike racks. I've heard of a few people getting their bikes stolen from the mall and they don't have any cameras facing the bike racks.


You'll notice that I use two locks and a cable. I use two locks any time my bike is going to be locked up somewhere that I can't see it and especially if it's going to be locked up for more than an hour.


Don't forget to lock up your seat and remove your lights and top-tube pad if you have them.

Also, if you can, take pictures of your bike after you lock it up. It might be easier to get your bike back or get reimbursed if you can prove that it was locked up correctly.
