Going big at bestbuy.
TCB rider, local male model and all around badass DJ Honeycutt tangled with a fire at his apartment last weekend and came out burned but also a hero.
While his spirits are high, so are his imminent medical bills. He’ll be off the road for several months as well to recover.
We are accepting donations via TCB’s webstore ($10 minimum). You can also give any amount directly through our PayPal, via firstname.lastname@example.org Anything you can do to help will be appreciated by him and all of us at TCB.
If you’re an SF local, we’ll be hosting a benefit for him in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
DJ is down! Help this dude up! Please push this note along and hit up TCB for the support!
Peter Taylor took some super rad photos the other night!!!
Keep it loose!

Anonymous asked: How do you remove the big cylinder of a kryptonite mini ulock, the one the dust-cover is originally on. i wanted to strip my ulock as shown on the mash website but i got stuck there. also do you remove the rubber coating as well or do you keep that on?
Theres a little pin you can drill out. Otherwise if you put that larger cylinder on an edge and hit that rubber piece in the end really hard it will just sheer off. Good luck.>
Anonymous asked: Dylan! What gear ratio do you prefer/usually run on your SSCX for races? Does the MASH team have a unanimous favorite or does everyone vary? I know it depends on the course and the weather but can you give us some examples of courses with corresponding gear ratios you run or would run? _Thanks!
I think right now its a 38x17. I used to ride a 42x17 which was good but with the climbing in Santa Cruz it just didn’t make sense. I think Ill go to a 39 up front… But I wouldn’t say that those ratios would be the consensus of the Mash team. Everyone has different styles. I am into pushing bigger gears over spinning.>
Dylan got a dollar hand up. To celebrate, he double fisted coconut water.
Roll’n deep in SC.
Anonymous asked: Hey man, I'm building up a couple of sets of fixed gear wheels. A road/sturdy set with phil wood hubs, and a "track" set with dura ace hubs. How many spokes should I go with, and should I radially lace the front wheel or 3x like the rear? Thanks.
The Track set I would keep 32 three cross double or triple butted spokes for both front and back. This means that the wheels will be lighter but just as stiff. The road wheels you can play around with. I have radial front lacing and its fine for me. I even race is on my CX bike from time to time. I don’t think straight gauge is necessary, usually ill use either double of single butted spokes. As long as the wheels are built strong you really shouldn’t have anything to worry about. As always, bikes get used and beat up. Keep in mind that no matter how much you beat up or baby your bike, always bring it in to get worked on.>
