On The Blogs: Getting an Internal Gear Hub

Recent Upgrade to Nexus Redline 8-Speed HubDuncan has switched up his gear set-up on his Marin Hamilton 29er, moving from a single speed to an internal gear hub, and tells us about it… from why he decided to do it to how he went about choosing what hub to go with, with help from Hoopdriver:

After one week and a couple hundred kilometres I’m really enjoying the gearing options of the 8-speed hub.

On The Blogs: Rob Ford and Toronto’s Political Spectrum

http://bikingtoronto.com/michaelhollowayblog/2010/11/07/an-anti-cycling-mayor-rob-ford-does-not-a-council-make/Blogger Michael Holloway has an interesting post about the possibility that mayor-elect Rob Ford will take Toronto down the road from civic power to corporate power:

The over all strategy is to reduce government power in favour of corporate power, and this was made very evident on election night when the first words out of Fords face, after he knew he had won, weren’t the catch phrases he repeated consistently through the election run, but a brand new one, one very familiar to me:

“Toronto is now open for business, ladies and gentlemen!”

On The Blogs: Cyclocross Crash Video

Cyclocross CrashYou may have caught our post with photos from the Ontario Cycling Association of last Saturday’s Cyclocross Championships, but have you seen Bikeroo’s crash video from the event?

Yesterday, local bike shop ZM Cycle & Fitness hosted the national cyclocross race in Cedarvale Park in Toronto. The best cyclocross racers across Canada participated in the most grueling sport of mud, dirt and hills. I took some photos and video but here’s a sneak peak of what to expect…
