CALL UP and a Fatbike Buyer’s Guide

From all the time spent in the saddle, under the stars, and behind the camera, I’m proud to announce two recent publications.  

CALL UP is a new monthly industry magazine published by QBP, designed to inspire and educate retailers about new trends and products.  The April issue of CALL UP focuses on “Bikepacking, Touring & Gravel”.  Included is an interview with famed bikepacker, photographer, and pedaling globetrotter Cass Gilbert; a multi-faceted interview with several gravel race organizers; and two photos from our summer in Europe.  The cover image is from our ride over Kemal-Egerek in Crimea, Ukraine, with Przemek and Vital.  The penultimate image in the publication was taken along the “Red Trail” in the mountains of southern Poland, near Lubna.  Thanks to Mark Sirek and company for such a great publication!

Also this week, the Adventure Cycling Association published my Fatbike Buyer’s Guide to accompany their annual Touring Bike Buyer’s Guide.  The article explores the concept of a fatbike tour and the variety of available fatbike equipment, in great detail.  Please share this resource with anyone curious about fatbiking and touring.  Note, an addendum of available fatbikes, including production and custom models, is linked from the article.
