Our Tucson Cyclovia Experience in Photos

For the first time, in our short history down here in Tucson, we were an official sponsor of Cyclovia Tucson. To captivate the Cyclovians we decided to bring out some of the bicycle touring rigs we had set up for our new showroom. We brought out a Surly CrossCheck and ECR both setup with Ortlieb Panniers. We've dubbed the Surly Moonlander our Zombie Apocalypse bike with its fully kitted out Revelate bags setup for going anywhere.

Ortlieb’s Ultimate Man Purse

This week I was inspired to talk about my beloved handlebar bag, the Ortlieb Ultimate 6 Pro-M. The thing I'm discovering about doing these videos, is doing them impromptu like this, I'm not sure what ridiculous things are going to come out of my mouth. Video Transcription: Hi I'm Josh Lipton with Bike Shop Hub and I want to tell you today about my handlebar bag. I'm a big fan of handlebar bags. I like to use them for bike commuting and bike touring. They just make things alot easier by having everything all right here at your hands.

Neon Trike Amongst the Shadows

Tucson's All Souls Procession has grown into an event of epic proportions. I decided this year to capture some of the bicycles that joined the festivities. While the season has transitioned from spooky to thankful to festive, I wanted to get this up before all of the holiday cheer had subsided. Think Nightmare before Christmas. Or have you seen the preview for Krampus? Its ridiculously terrifying. Great branding for Surly though. I love to see bicycles out in an event like this as tools for community building.

The Zombie Apocalypse Bike

I'm working on the prototype of an idea to start doing a weekly video post here. It'll just be top-of-mind stuff related to Bike Shop Hub be it new products, ruminations or interesting projects like this bike that we've got featured in our new showroom. As I get started the videos may be a bit rough. This one even has some weird glitch with damaged frames that happened in the upload (kind of fits the zombie theme though). But to make this work, I've just got to start publishing. So bear with me and I hope this becomes smooth and polished in not to long. Video Transcription: Hi I'm Josh Lipton and I'm here with BikeShopHub.com. I'm here to tell you about this ...

Adjusting to the New Commute

A few weeks ago, I moved from a house where I had a very simple bike commute (I rode straight down one road for 3 miles) to house located such that there are a wide array of route options.
