This was the first time I've been to town since they moved down the street. Check it out!

Anna Blogs MNCX State Champs

While Jeff was off gallivanting around tropical Philadelphia for Worlds, I was back in Minneapolis trying to keep my eyeballs from freezing solid.

The Retseck Collection

Earlier this year we hired illustrator George Retseck to render a Macho Disc for the cover of our Annual. We fell in love with the results for a myriad of reasons. For one, the dude's always been a legend to us because of his work on the iconic early 90's Bridgestone catalogs.

Weekend Trip to Rhinelander

It's important to have a wide variety of interests in life. Of course, I love cyclocross, track bikes, and alleycats, but as a well rounded multi-faceted individual I also enjoy other things: such as mountain biking, road trips, shooting bb guns, and getting drunk in a tiny little cabin. To that end, last weekend four of us headed out to my...

On Bandit Cross Prizes…

Lately, with the growing popularity of the Bandit Cross Concept™ we've been receiving a number of requests for sponsorship of said events.

Product Development: When Things Don’t Make It

I've been wanting to share the tale of the now canceled Macho King cantilever (a Zona version of the Macho Man) for a while now, but I've been afraid to show you something that you can't have. We've been getting a bunch of questions about a Zona Macho lately, and as I feel there are a number of interesting behind the scenes info / how AC works aspects of the story, this is my attempt to let you know what happened and why.

Leading With Your Values

The other day I was talking about the Velocity USA (you know the rim makers) and in speaking of them I made the comment that one of the things I admire about them was that they "lead with their values."
