The Soup Peddler is giving you a chance to win a Fairdale Daybird in either Standard or Step-Thru style. We are big fans of the Soup Peddler and they have kept us going through many a hard work day with healthy drinks and foods. Starting today and going until May 1 (the beginning of Bike to Work Month) if you buy a smoothie from one of Soup Peddler’s 3 Austin locations you will be entered into a drawing to win the bike. Thanks Soup Peddler!

Sandy Carson’s WE WERE THERE April 13, 2016

we were there

Personally I would be terrified to name a book this. There is so much potential for my grammar challenged brain to screw this up… WERE, We’re, where, there, their, they’re…. Anyway, I think Sandy Carson got this right. WE WERE THERE is a photo book from his unique perspective inside the photo pits at all different sorts of music shows. The photos are really fantasic… Sandy is such a master of catching candid moments. Check out more over on Sandy’s site SandyCarson.com and we highly recommend picking one up here.

I read in a business book that it is bad to depict your customers falling into a T Rex’s catapult trap but I figure most companies customers are kind of nerds. @badbadbrain joins the #fairdaleanimalclub.

Fishing with Jared Swafford February 11, 2016

Jared is a professional BMX rider for Odyssey BMX and Fit Bike Co. Though he has the natural talent to kill it on just about any size bike, his first love happens to be fishing! We spent some time with him on his trusty Weekender, and hit up one of his regular fishing spots.

Upgrade your old Weekender with more gear range January 27, 2016

The 2016 Weekender Drop comes stock with a 11- 40t rear cassette. With 10 different gears ranging from a-bombing-down-a-hill-high-speed 11t to the granny-gear-hill-climbing 40t you can ride anything that comes your way. Older Weekenders have an 11-36t rear cassette. If you want a bigger range of gears you can follow the traditional path and add a front derailleur and another sprocket up front. Another option is to take advantage of all the 1x upgrades available in the mountain bike world. Leif Valin upgraded Sandy Carson’s Weekender with a OneUp 42t rear cassette kit and a Wolf Tooth narrow/wide front sprocket.
