Legends

dom_legends_preview2

Over the coming months I hope to amass a large and (hopefully) well organized collection of images of the classic legends, some familiar and some less known. The goal is to make a nice database of images that might not already be online and create a place to easily view them. If anyone has any resources or ideas, please share; otherwise stay tuned for something that could be pretty nifty.

Always Almost Sunny

DSC_0037

The long romance with spring and summer is gone, but somehow it has managed to be overly sunny and warm this fall. It's not yet that time to start thinking about white blankets covering every inch of the road, but soon it will come, along with that nasty thick, salty sand. Doesn't it make your ears sing at the thought of all that grinding in your drivetrain? It almost makes me want to sit inside and watch Home Alone back-to-back instead.

Speedbicycles 2010 Calendar

speed_cal1

I have been a huge fan of Speedbicycles since I first stumbled upon it, it may be one of my favorite sites online. Stefan has done an amazing job restoring and keeping the integrity of beautiful rare vintage lightweights. Now I normally do not have a calendar hanging, but when I saw Speedbicycles had one for sale I made an exception, plus he sent along an equally wonderful playing card of Mr. Anquetil, such a great surprise.

Vittoria ProPower

Here at Domestique we recently got ahold of these stylish Vittoria shoes. Certainly not Vittoria’s most expensive pair, but well worth a look if you’re in the market for new shoes. They seem like a comfortable fit but won’t know for sure till more miles get logged on them. Until then, I have provided a bit of eye candy.

Cervélo Test Team



Cervélo Test Team - Beyond the Peloton

When I first saw these I was quite happy; a kid in a candy store with glowing eyes fixed on that wonderous Wonka bar. In actuality I was just glad someone had documented the beginnings of a small team struggling through rough waters. Hearing that the Cervélo Test Team was the only team in a very long time to be fully sponsored and closely knit with an actual bicycle manufacturer (and not a bank) only got me that much more excited. This is the team I had been waiting to follow, especially when Sastre announced he would be part of it and with a string of amazing riders it seems like what first was a story of underdogs, became something great.

Check out every episode of Beyond the Peloton, all of them are good.

Harriman State Park Loop



Harriman State Park Loop

This past weekend myself and mi amigo Alexander made a loop through Harriman, just south of Bear Mountain. I have been frequenting Bear Mountain but mainly along 9W, and this was a nice change. For 130 miles we made our way up through Jersey, through the park and back home to Brooklyn.
