Come on Down! Buyer & Cellar’s Michael Urie Welcomes Michael Arden & Nick Adams to Barbra’s Basement

first_imgMichael Urie spends an awful lot of time alone in Barbra Streisand’s basement in Buyer & Cellar, so he was thrilled to welcome two of his pals, Broadway alums Michael Arden (TV’s Anger Management) and Nick Adams (Priscilla Queen of the Desert), backstage at the Barrow Street Theatre. The duo came to catch Urie’s one-man hijinks on August 18, then went backstage to congratulate the Ugly Betty and How to Succeed alum. (Arden, who toured with the real Barbra, might have offered some behind-the-scenes scoop on the superstar.) Written by Jonathan Tolins, Buyer & Cellar tells the story of Alex More, an aspiring actor who takes a job working in Barbra Streisand’s basement mall in Malibu. Check out this Hot Shot of Urie and his talented friends, then catch him in Buyer & Cellar off-Broadway!

Roll Massif launches collection of Colorado based sportive rides for road, gravel, & MTB

first_imgCalling themselves “The New American Sportive,” Roll Massif is ready to roll some of the best rides in Colorado. Formed by an all star event planning and execution team with more than 30 years experience that includes co-founders and co-owners Chandler Smith and Scotty Olmsted, not to mention veteran cycling journalist Ben Delaney among others, Roll Massif plans to focus on the best rides Colorado has to offer. The eight rides build on the legacy of five existing rides including the Copper Triangle which have raised over $2 million for charity over the years. New to the collection is the Wild Horse Gravel in De Beque, Crooked Gravel, and Sunrise to Sunset MTB in Winter Park.That means the eight rides include options for road, gravel, and even mountain biking. If you’re up for it, there are big rides with road centuries or 80-90 mile gravel rides. Or, most of the events have shorter options as well so you can get most of the experience even if your fitness isn’t 100%. For mountain biking there are two 12 hour MTB events to either race or just ride until the sun goes down with some friends. Pricing for each even depends on the ride, and some offer discounted pricing for early registration. Better yet, cyclists 18 years and younger ride for free in all six road and gravel sportives.Below is a list of starting prices, note that some events have prices that go up as you get closer to the event. Roll Massif states that all events include full nutritional support out on the course.PricingWild Horse Gravel – starts at $110 and includes breakfast before + cookout after (18 & under free)Sunrise to Sunset Elephant Rock – starts at $65Elephant Rock – starts at $50 (18 & under free)Copper Triangle – starts at $135 and includes jersey or hoodie, lunch (18 & under free)Crooked Gravel – starts at $70 (18 & under free)Sunrise to Sunset Winter Park – starts at $65Tour de Vineyards – starts at $70 (18 & under free)Tour of the Moon – starts at $125 and includes jersey, lunch, beer (18 & under free)Calling them neither a ride or a race, the sportives will have timed segments that you can ride competitively, or just chill. Roll Massif states that depending on the ride, the number of participants will vary from 500-7,000 people, and that they have distances and challenges to suit most abilities. Many of the sportives will also include on course aid stations, food and beverage, and a festive atmosphere with live music at the finish.For more, check out the link below and start planning your rides for 2019!rollmassif.comlast_img read more

Roadrunner Classic Leads in SRAM Tour of Gila With Huge Cash Purse

first_imgThe 2010 Roadrunner Classic is a one day Omnium for Pro 1, 2 men and women to be held in Albuquerque New Mexico on April 24, 2010. Both Roadrunner TT and Road events will be held on the Snake, a hilly 6.3 mile closed course at an elevation of 5,200 feet. It will be an ideal warm-up and staging event for the SRAM Tour of the Gila in Silver City on April 28th.It’s also a chance for a big payout: The purse is $9,000 for Men Pro, 1, 2, and $6,000 for Women Pro 1, 2.There is also a separate Time Trial event for Cat 3, 4, 5 men and Cat 3, 4 women. The Omnium includes a 6.3 mile time trial and 63 mile men’s / 37.8 mile women’s road race.“The cancellation of the Tour of Georgia and the rescheduling of the Tour of California until May 16-23, presented an opportunity to create an event in Albuquerque in association with the SRAM Tour of the Gila to fill the void left on the U.S. racing calendar. High altitude and mild weather in New Mexico in April provide cyclists with an opportunity to train and race at altitude to prepare for the upcoming season or the SRAM Tour of the Gila,” said Charles Ovis, RoadRunner Classic coordinator. “For those pros targeting the Amgen Tour of California, it presents an excellent opportunity physiologically to train at high altitude prior to competing at sea level for that event.”Registration for the 2010 RoadRunner Classic is now open. Entry fee for men and women Pro 1, 2 Omnium is $65. Men and Women Cat 3, 4, 5 Time Trial is $20. Register early so you don’t miss out on this historic event. Event registration is now open online at www.rrcycling.com.Important: Right now we are opening only 45 spots for Men Cat 1, 2 in the Omnium event, so it is important to register early. We are reserving 75 spots for the Men Pro’s in the Omnium event. We will open more spots for Men Cat 1, 2 in the Omnium event after March 31.Aside from the competitions, a Spectator Expo will provide a full day of family activities adjacent to the race course finish line. The Expo will include a New Mexico food fair, bike show, demonstration rides and plenty of fun and games while the racers are speeding their way around the Snake.A portion of the proceeds of the event will go to the Wounded Warrior Project, whose mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors. A newly formed Wounded Warriors Cycling Team has been invited to train in Albuquerque for the week prior to the event and will participate in the Time Trial.The event is sponsored by Bernalillo County, Albuquerque Convention and Visitors Bureau and Wells Fargo Advisors.last_img read more

New Time VRS Fluidity Endurance Road Bike, Their First “Comfort” Bike

first_imgTime’s new VRS Fluidity road bike is their first comfort frame, and it’s nothing if not unique.From a purely aesthetic point of view, it clashes with the notion of an endurance / comfort bike. The tubes are angular, suggesting a solid build, and there’s an integrated seatmast…something we’ve only ever seen on pure race bikes. Until now.The VRS Fluidity is constructed with Vectran fibers in the main frame, seatstays and fork to reduce vibration. The geometry is new with 15 – 25mm higher headtubes and thinner, curved seatstays. The integrated seatmast is called the Translink seat tube, and it offers a bit of vertical flex to take the edge off bumps. It also gets a new full carbon headtube with no alloy headset races that use pressed in bearings, Time’s first frame with this feature but something that’s likely to move across the line in the future. Weight savings is ~10g.A separate Di2 frame will also be available. Frameset (with fork and HS) will retail for €3345 or €3,845 for Di2. All have BB30 bottom brackets.last_img read more

Titanium Flying Machine the Latest Bike Born from a 3D Printer

first_imgEnlisting the help of CSIRO (the Commonwealth Science and Industrial Research Organization) and their Melbourne Australia based Titanium Technology division, Flying Machine is able to print out custom 6AIV4 Titanium lugs quickly and without a lot of waste. The process seems similar to Charge’s printed titanium dropouts, and is likely just the beginning to the 3D printed revolution.The lugs are then joined to 3AL-2.5V titanium tubing using aerospace grade super toughened epoxy, sort of a modern, 3D printing brazing technique. The use of a lugged frame design allows Flying Machine to build the bikes to order, offering custom geometry frames in as little as 10 days, and complete bikes in 3 weeks. The printing of the lugs is carried out in Melbourne, while the frame building is finished in their Perth studio. The prototype F1 above was created for Flying Machine’s owner Matt and to his exact measurements. Production bikes will be available in a number of options and colors like the rest of the beautiful rides in the Flying Machine Line up. Pricing and availability remains to be set, but anyone interested can email Flying Machine at communication@flyingmachine.com.au for more information.Specs:Drivetrain – Gates Carbon Drive, Centretrack,  55 tooth front sprocket, 20 tooth rearHubs – White Industries M15, titanium cassette with single speed spacer kitRims – H + Son, ArchetypeSpokes – DT Swiss, CompetitionTires – Schwalbe, DuranoSaddle – Fizik, Aliante VSHandlebars – FM CustomForks – FM Custom CarbonBar Tape – Dipell, Competition, leatherBottom Bracket – Bushnell Featherweight eccentric, with White Industries Ti spindle BBBrakes –  Tektro, R570 calipers with RL340 levers For years the cycling industry has been focused on carbon fiber, but lately the use of an old material in a new way seems to be gaining a lot of attention. Specifically, the use of titanium loaded into a 3D printer to create complex shapes and create a bicycle faster, and with more control. While not quite as advanced as the recent Empire Cycles MX-6 full suspension bike with the first fully 3D printed titanium frame, Flying machine is taking a different approach with the 3DP-F1 and using the technology to create custom fit titanium road bikes.last_img read more

TPE16: KMC rethinks chain connection with new Klick Link

first_imgWhile KMC wasn’t able to provide a lot of information on the new Klick Link, we’re assuming this will be something that will show up on complete bikes rather than aftermarket chains. Instead of using a quick link to connect the chain, each chain will have a special link  on one end which is designed to mate with the female end of any chain link. A special pin is then inserted into the chain and then locked into place with either pedaling or a special too.Unlike the standard chain pins, the locking function of the Klick Link pin means there is no chance of a stiff link or weak link at the connection and it has a wide flange on one end for even more strength. The connection is reusable, and the chain can be resized by cutting the end of the chain without the Klick Link. It doesn’t seem to be meant to replace the Missing link completely, but more likely a cost effective method of connecting chains securely at the factory. On the chain side there is a whole new collection of X11 and X10, SL, EL, and standard chains for Shimano, SRAM, and Campy 11 and 10 speed drivetrains, as well as EcoProTect rust proof finishes for X11, X10, and the Z51 chain.kmcchain.eu The new KMC Klick Link is an interesting concept, but it’s probably something you won’t see on a bike for another year or two. Why invent another way to connect the two ends of a chain? It seems to be the result of the desire to combine the convenience of a quick link with the added security of a chain pin. But instead of using the current chain pin as the standard, the Klick Link promises easier connection with even better security and performance…last_img read more
