The Topeak Bikamper

The Topeak Bikamper is a camping tent intended to shelter a single individual. Designed with cyclists in mind, the Bikamper utilizes a bicycle frame and front wheel instead of tent poles . The omission of tent poles results in a reduced overall weight, and smaller more compact carrying size both crucial items to consider when cycling. Click here to find a local retailer (there are lots of Topeak retailers in my area), if you can't find a dealer near you there is always Amazon selling them for $164.34(US) + s/h. 

 I've never been one to go on extended riding trips, at most I'll drive somewhere and spend a day riding always coming home at the end of that day. Most of my cycling is urban in nature, which generally consists of either a round trip from my house to Stanley Park ( about 30km), hitting the local skate parks ( Leeside, or Hastings), doing some dirt jumping at Taylor Park or maybe mountain-biking at SFU. My fondness for riding stems back to the good old eighties, and my love for BMX vert/flatland. (Now I keep getting asked to upload my old home videos from my early riding years, and I'm really going to try to get them uploaded some day)

Longboarding With Team Original

Love this video, makes longboarding look like so much fun. Do they rent longboards? Are there areas to longboard here in BC? Gonna have to find out and finally give this sport a try. Until then I'll have to keep watching this video... Via - LikeCool By: Mass

Blogger Has Died

Dear friends, fans, and followers. For the past few months my blog has been overrun with errors, making changes very difficult (if not impossible). On numerous occasions I've attempted to reset my blogger template, install a new templates, and even restore from an older version but I'm still unable to add or remove specific content from my blogs template. The initial problematic area was the blog post section which refuses to accept any changes or alterations to the date, author, title or social media links. I have suffered through this problem, but as of late it appears that the layout is now no longer accepting changes, and when displayed is no longer centered. If anyone has suggestions on how to fix these blogger issues, please email me. As a result, I will no longer be updating, as its too difficult maintain this blog.

Duct Tape...It's Not Just For MacGyver Anymore

I came across this crazy site the other day called Duct Tape Fashion , which specializes in duct tape. Wait... I don't think I explained myself properly, there's a website dedicated to duct tape, and all things duct tape related. Ok, so maybe I did explain myself properly, WTF...really, duct tape. Well it seems duct tape isn't just for HVAC specialists and MacGyver anymore, it seems people are using duct tape to create all kinda of weird items like wallets, baseball caps, hats, bags, bracelets, purses, visors, and roses. Don't believe me, well check out some of these pics I got... Wallets Baseball Cap Hats Bags Bracelets Purses Visors Roses By: Mass
