Tannus tires saves the day

A knarly nail tried to ruin my ride today... my Tannus flat-proof tire wasn't having it.

Tannus tires are available in the US through MetroGnome Music and Cycle to Go.

Bromptons in the (virtual) wild.

I love it when I randomly see Bromptons, especially at non-Brompton specific events or websites.  One such case I recently saw was Charlie Sorrel from Cult of Mac.   For a guy who writes for a Mac website, he sure does like to write about lots of other cool non-Apple stuff.

Of course one of the things he raves about are Brommies.  While there are a few things that he thinks can be changed, overall he says it would be the bike he would keep if he could only have one.

In addition to a post solely about Bromptons, Charlie also wrote a post about traveling light.  In that post, Charlie considers his Brompton as his main transportation mode of choice for excursions lasting upwards of two weeks.  The post also contains lots of excellent advice in terms of the types of clothes to pack  (merino wool trumps all) and stuff like gadgets and chargers.

Here are the links to Charlie's posts:

BUCDC 2014 me!

Here's a video that I finally finished from the BUCDC footage that I had.  This is the first time that I've really done some serious video editing... I probably had over an hour and a half of footage to try to pare down to under 3 minutes.  The GoPro died somewhere close to the end of our journey, so I just lumped the images together.  Enjoy!
