A little throwback with this being the weekend of the Giro d’Italia and all… the Bianchi C4 made it’s debut with the Gewiss-Bianchi team in the 1987 installment of the Giro during the team time trial. 27 years later and it’s still a sexy machine and one that would not look out of place today.
Cool video from Gonzalo Martinez featuring gnarly footage from an enduro race held in Curico, Chile. Sponsored by MTB Curico and Ruka Cycles https://www.facebook.com/RukaCycles

To make up for yesterday’s fail at linking video, the classic from FBM, “I Love My Bicycle” – The Story of FBM Bikes…
As much as I detest the formulaic framebuilder videos that seem to be released on an hourly basis (you know the type – slow mo pan across the workbench, show tubes being mitered and sanded, place tubes in jig, etc.etc.) you have to cut the FBM guys major slack. Unlike most of the ‘builders” out there, they have paid their dues and spent more actual time putting frames together instead of creating a semi fictional online resume before the first tubes hit the jig. It doesn’t get much more justridethefuckingthing than this.
Latest installment of the Little 500 coming up on April 25th (Womens) and 26th (Mens) at Bill Armstrong Stadium Bloomington, Indiana
