    Cycloculture

    Hi All,

    I have recently started a blog devoted to real-world cyclists. It is called "Cycloculture," and you can see it at www.cycloculture.com.

    I just posted an interview with Allan Wanta, king of the budget custom frame.

    Yours,

    Forbes Bagatelle-Black

    Forbes, I've been following along with your progress on the blog and applaud your efforts! Three excellent interviews and a darn good article about buying on Craigslist. A nice balance of new and old, high end and not so much.
    Keep up the good work. I'll need to redo my password to comment at the blog...that's a cumbersome process, commenting...otherwise a very enjoyable read.

    Fabulous blog!
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    Thanks! It's been a fun project. I'm waiting for responses from a bunch more folks. With luck, I should be able to get another interview up this weekend.

    Chatting with Surly's Andy Corson

    I've always loved Surlys. I just wish they would make a 68cm road frame...

    Despite the fact that they refuse (very politely) to make a really large frame, I have also always enjoyed talking to their marketing manager, Andy Corson. So I just interviewed him for Cycloculture:

    Forbes,

    Really a VERY nice job on your blog -- not too different in feel from what I'm hoping to achieve, although your style and content are, of course, all your own.

    I particularly liked Herlihy's powerful statement on the significance of the advent of the safety bike. I hope you don't mind that I cited it on my blog (here), with a link to your interview.

    Good writing, good interview subjects -- good going! Keep going!

    Fifteen Days in the Belly of the Beast

    In my latest article, I talk about about the awesome experience of visiting eleven bicycle factories in China. Words do not adequately describe the awe I felt at seeing these colossal manufacturing centers, but I tried to convey some of my thoughts:

    Copenhagenized Cycleliciousness

    I just posted my interview with photographer and bicycle advocate, Mikael Colville-Andersen. His photos of fashion conscious cyclo-commuters in Copenhagen are wonderful, but there is more to him than just pretty pictures.
