The first post in 2017 gives to my Korean dude Jack, who recently spent some days riding and exploring in Taipei City. 2016 is a hell of the year but only riding bikes keeps us motivated! I’ve been a fan of Low Bicycles for a long time and got amazed by his dope Track Standard Massan’s colorway build. I think we will see fewer and fewer Track Standard frames coming from the factory in the following years!
Few years ago when Musguard just started on Kickstarter looking for backers, I was actually stunned by the simple, smart design of their mud protectors! The saver looks so simple, elegant but it actually hides so many details on the design. Different from Ass Savers, as far as I am concerned, Musguard creates a more functional and flexible system for the commuters.
It’s my pleasure to have this opportunity to test out their products and ride around in Taipei City, see how it goes…and the result is just incredible! Musguard offers you a longer rear protector to save your butt and…unlike saddle attachment, it goes down on your seat tube with a Velcro in order to fasten up, which means it basically fits any kind of bikes! The front one, however, is extremely important for commuters if they ride on a wet road. Sometimes the splash comes from the front wheel and gets your jeans wet and dirty. Musguard offers the front fender to keep you away from those shits! It also comes with a sticky pad for attaching on your down tube safely and stably.
What if you don’t need them for now?….the fenders are rollable so that when you don’t wanna put them on, you can just roll them up on your top tube or store them inside your pouch. It’s just amazing to see that these simple fenders have so many different functions. Even though it’s not easy to set them up at the first time, yet some practices required and you will get used to it! In a nutshell, these sweeties are just off the hook! If you haven’t seen or used them, take a look on their promotion video and hang around on their site for more info!
Few days ago me and my homie Y.C Tang, an awesome photographer, decided to shoot some pics like we did so many times before while the polar vortex stroke our land! Headed to the mountain to see the snow and rode a lil bit with my awesome God & Famous Glitch Kit. Stoked to see the full results turn out! The kit matched with the color of snowy background! Everything was just on the right point…big thanks to Y.C Tang again!
This newest DFL collection of God & Famous and Aventon Bikes is already a huge hit in the community! Lots of awesome goodies coming out from this cooperation! Our good shop Kendo got some in and my homie Eric decided to update his 10 years Mash bike with no hesitation to get things back to street style! Looking awesome on this MTB wide handlebar matched up with track bikes! More of these will be appearing out on Taipei streets soon and damn I really wanna put one on my Low…
