The new Bontrager Trip computers have arrived. These will replace the Trek Incite series. The redesign looks solid – the computer face is very readable, the new sensor is a snap to install, and the packaging does a good job catching the eye.

Salsa bikes have a unique sizing structure which can be pretty confusing, even to the people that talk about it all day every day. You can often overhear one of us on the phone saying “you’re looking for a 56? you mean a 55? no? oh, you want the equivalent of a 56, so you need a 53. yes. trust me”.

Good thing Salsa’s new website is amazing…

Pick your bike, tab through the geometry and fit charts. They are very well done. We’re trying to keep a few sizes of the our popular models in stock so you can actually ride them before you buy them (novel, eh?). We’re expecting the new Casseroll doubles in today, and we’re building up the rest of our Vayas and Chilis soon. A test ride trumps a fit chart anyday, but the fit chart is a great start.

Sometimes they expound on the more unique bikes, as they did yesterday with the Fargo:

Ari's Fargo v1.1

The great Thaw has arrived and we’re working on staying on top of everything. It’s refreshing to see everyone crawl out of their caves and get rolling again.

We are seeing a ton of new product these days. New bikes, new accessories, new everything. We put up a few pics of new goodies on the FB fan page here.

More to come soon.



We’ve renamed the blog deal. Our newsletter has been the Velograph for years, but we decided it was a better name for the blog. Now the email newsletter is called the VG Wire and will point to recent blog posts, upcoming events, and other good stuff.

that is all.
