Schindelhauer Bikes with Gates Carbon Belt Drive...

I saw the Carbon Belt drives at interbike last year, as was impressed. I really want to check one out, and put it through it's paces.
I'm so curious about them. These bikes look really clean, and have great setups, I just can't ride an all white bike, they need to change that... Cool edit, Girlfriend skid FTW!

Hit-and-Run Rampage Suspect Arrested!!

I'm Happy to see the Police taking a more serious approach in deal with these types of bicycle incidents. Let's hope they can keep up the work and deal with all of them.

Investigators from the San Francisco and Albany police departments have arrested the suspected driver of an SUV who went on a rampage and targeted four cyclists in San Francisco Wednesday night.

The unidentified man, described only as a 40-year-old white male, was taken into custody in Albany at around 1 p.m. today after he showed up at the Albany Police Department to report his vehicle had been carjacked.

The Best Footwear for This Time of Year

My buddy Chris, who runs Freddie Black, @LiveInTheBlack Has a good article about the best shoes for the summer.

Now is the time of year when the change starts to occur. For the past six or seven months, most of us who wear a tie to work from nine to five wear dress shoes almost always, with the exception of possibly the weekend or our nightly run (if you’re not comfortable with a pair of dress shoes, you need to be.) Though with the passing of Easter and the warming of the waters, we have many more opportunities to get our ankles some air, and often times a more casual route is the way to go.
