Today Casual ride with the xc hardtail today. Stopped to listen to ice making noises while drinking coffee... And then humped the bike up an icy small mountain road to ride it down hard. Was fun with changing terrain...some spikeys on the tires would have helped...only fell once.

Will have to go back with the gopros and a few am riders for some more fun

Built for a lifetime of shenanigans.

Custom titanium frames...as unique as the rider on it. 

Building frames since 2004 - Road, touring, CX, XC and All-Mountain MTB.  

 

Zero Cycles have been around since the early 2000 and have a great track record building and riding their builds. They product test all the time and pass their bikes through hardship to find faults and how to make their builds even better. 

Mike, the owner of Zero Cycles, is a straightforward guy who loves bikes and doesn't screw around. If  there is a problem, they have a zero compromise and the bike gets fixed...no hassles...The zero has a deep meaning for him. Bike companies should not make it a hassle and a headache to build, love and get great customer service. He works with you from conception, to build and through the life of your bike = great customer service. 


Keep an eye out for our QnA with Mike about his titanium frames and the process of building a custom titanium bicycle.

Glycogen Packed Brownies...guilt free pleasure

Yes...These are super healthy and we love these as our post workout refuel/snack

CONSUMING CARBOHYDRATES AFTER WORKOUTS HELPS TO REPLENISH GLYCOGEN STORES – AKA MUSCLE ENERGY – THAT HAVE BEEN EMPTIED DUE TO YOUR WORKOUT. WHEN YOU REPLENISH, YOU FEED YOUR MUSCLES SO THEY CAN RECOVER AND GROW.

I am not shitting you...these are amazing taste, full of good nutrients and are super easy to make. We eat these everyday...cause they are healthy and we love chocolate...

So why are they full of nutrients and amaziness?

Well basically, without getting into a nutrition less...it is because of the simple ingredients...they are just that super awesome....

- 2 cups of sweet potatoes (glycogen rich...which your body needs for recovery after a big workout)

- 1 whole grated zucchini (these actually have protein, vitamins and adds moisture)

- 1/3 cup of Honey (good healthy stuff period)

- 1/2 cup of quinoa flour (healthy and can make your own using a grinder or blender)

- 1.5 tsp of baking powder

- 1/2 cup of 100% cocoa powder (we always end up putting more though)

 mixing stuff is fun...

mixing stuff is fun...

STEPS

  1. Set oven to 415F.
  2. Bake 2 large sweet potatoes until they are soft, approximately 1 hour.  When the sweet potatoes have finished baking, allow them to cool to room temperature.
  3. Set oven to 350F.
  4. Grate the zucchini into a bowl and set aside.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, add sweet potato and mash.
  6. Add all of the remaining ingredients and thoroughly mix together.
  7. Evenly divide batter among the individual muffin pan.
  8. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, or until you can insert a toothpick in the brownies and it comes out clear.

Cold sunrise..fresh air

When it's cold and windy...means we get some cleaner air!....good time to dress warm and enjoy a nice sunrise! 해돋이 or 일출 is sunrise in korean.

It was a cold morning and windy at -13C...but the air is fresh... So decided to be less lazy...and went out for a 640am bicycle ride to see the sunrise. 

The wind...niptastic...i went out at 640am to catch the sunrise... Was a nice sunrise...but my bike punished me for sleeping outside. My front brake froze and so did my front shifter. It made the climbs harder and descents more interesting; especially with some little hard snow crust and ice.

Did i pee on my bike you ask? Well yes i did. That golden shower gave it some temporary rotatory satisfaction...but it was only temporary, although worth it to start the steeper descent in relative safety...

Have a great Tuesday...the weekend isn't far away

Ice Ice Baby...

This is our second post winter tip on ice...from our Instagram page

.
It's gonna get colder in the next few days...so here is another winter cycling tip...ice

Don't use your brakes on ice...keep a strong core..keep your bike straight..and coast ..if looks bad...get off and walk safely and slowly...don't fall and hurt yourself.
.
Be careful for ice patches while cycling. Some tips
- reduce air pressure
- use cx tires or other
- spikey tires when more extreme
- always use good judgement and ride safe .

Going to Lake Baegoon

It is easy to just get on your bike and cycle to many places...we biked from the Han River to Lake Baegoon near Uiwang city...all paved bicycle paths

It is awesome how you can just jump on your bike and ride...ride to your hearts contempt...you literally have access to thousands of kilometers of paths you can ride while you're in Korea. Here is a off the main Han River path idea....(also check out more videos on our instagram and youtube channel)

Just riding on ice....

When the path is in the shade for half the day...expect slippery conditions in the mornings

Often it clears up by the late afternoon. Ride with care!

Did you see ice and snow today? ...Comment below and check out our youtube for more videos...

Got a bit of snowtime - Yay

We got a bit of snow today! Yay...took out the all mountain hardtail for a little rip in the snow.

Remember those roots and those wooden logs as stairs get very slippery when wet/snowy!

free subway....

Free subway...but it sucks because it means the air has been so shitty these past few days

We said it...the air quality sucks...it blows...the PM 2.5 (which is the smallest micro particles that screws you up) have been dangerously high these past few days.

As a effort to help in some way, the metro system in Seoul, Korea's biggest city, is having free subway rides for commuters today....but only during peak hours. Which to me blows since during peak rush hour times...the system is already taxed as it is. Not sure if you have ever taken the Seoul subway during rush hours...but you are literally a sardine in a box...pushed..squished...degraded. I can see why people are so pissed off in big cities...the busy commute is a good reason to screw up your start to your day with negative energy and F up your whole chi.

 

The metro was free the other day too...and some news outlets reported that it doesn't seem to be too effective since they only saw a 2% increase in normal commuter usage. I think it would be nice if free times were offered in a bigger window...not just for the small peak rush hour window. I took the subway at 9am and I had to pay...which is fine...but sucks that I don't get a benefit because I am heading to work later than the massive unfortunate horde of unhappy subwaytastic commuters. 

 

Do you think these free rides will help...do you think this is something that would make you leave your car at home?

What about better cycling infrastructure which can lead to safer cycling and wellbeing....

What do you think...comment and follow us on instagram, facebook and youtube.
