In celebration of National Bike Month, Poster Cabaret recently published their 2010 Bicycle Poster Print Set. 16 prints by 15 artists — all hand-made screen prints and way cool. We love these prints!
Civia recalled the carbon forks on their Hyland in March and the replacement steel forks are arriving at dealers now. I picked mine up today and it looks great. For 2010 the Hylands will come spec’d with this fork. It’s clearly a better choice than the old carbon fork for use on a commuter bike.
