Monday Musette

Lot’s to look at today:

1. Did you see that Mavic is adding tires to its repertoire? Call me a cynic, but don’t these look eerily similar to Specialized’s open tubulars–which look eerily similar to Vittoria’s EVO KS?

2. Did you know that VDB has a posse? Well, he does. And soon it will have t-shirts (because nothing says “posse” more than matching t-shirts).

3. Do you happen to live in Stockholm? Are you looking for a fixed gear for all your winter fitness needs? If you answered yes to both, then this is for you. A pretty nice bike if you ask me.

4. Here’s a great set of images featuring the Mongolian Cyclocross Team and their ambassador/benefactor/host/godfather, Johan “Those Aren’t Plugs” Museeuw. All kidding aside, this is a great program that certainly extends the boundaries of cyclocross way beyond its traditional borders.

5. RKP published an interview with the man behind ATMO, Richard Sachs. I’m not sure what’s more interesting–the interview itself or the comments it sparked.

6. Domestique and El Cyclista are two terrific sites I stumbled upon recently. Check them out and add them to your regular reading. I love El Cyclista’s kit!

7. And last but not least, while we’re on the subject of kit–you have 2 weeks left to get some Pavé kit of your own. The order form is here. Contact us with questions.
That’s it for today–enjoy your Monday!

About Whit

My experiences might easily fit many cycling fans' definitions of “living the dream.” Since getting hooked on the sport watching Lance Armstrong win the 1993 U.S. Pro Championship, I've raced as an amateur on Belgian cobbles, traveled Europe to help build a European pro team, and piloted that team from Malaysia to Mont Ventoux. As a former assistant director sportif with Mercury-Viatel, I've also seen the less dreamy side of the sport – the side rife with broken contracts, infighting, and positive dope tests. These days, I live with my lovely wife in Pennsylvania and share my experiences and views on the sport at Bicycling Magazine, the Embrocation Cycling Journal, and at my own site, Pavé.
