This week we visited Lemond Composites, a new carbon fiber manufacturing facility in Tennessee that’s looking to revolutionize not just carbon bicycles, but the carbon fiber industry as a whole. We met with Greg and his team to get the scoop, and found out they’ll be hiring soon.

Danny MacAskill continues to amaze in his latest video Wee Day Out, and Denise Mueller amazed us in totally other ways by setting a women’s bicycle speed record (and nearly toppling the overall record). We caught up with her at Interbike and shot close up pics of the custom, one-off KHS bike she rode.

As for gear, there’s a ton of new stuff still coming in from our Interbike and Eurobike coverage (yes, we’re still posting it…we covered that much!), and this week’s highlights include new, wider aero wheels from Reynolds built on Industry Nine hubs; a massive new range of sizes from Schwalbe, almost ensuring that your favorite tread will be available on more than one category of tire, and Tumbleweed’s unique take on the fat bike that turns it into a proper adventure touring bicycle capable of running more traditional standards while still rolling on 4″ tires. Links to all the rest below…
