Once upon a time the Mont
Cenis. Once upon a time the Mont Cenis.  by chaberton

The pass of Mont Cenis is used by thousands of years to cross the Alps It has always been considered a gateway to the Italian peninsula. Any person who, after crossing the impressive mountains in the French Savoie, wanted to reach the fertile Po valley, would be passed to the Col du Mont Cenis. Objects have fallen to the wanderers to the hill during this crossing of the Alps, which occasionally are found fortuitously, representing almost one clock time, and the time has stopped at the Mont Cenis.

Make your own Bender Fender
mud guard Make your own Bender Fender mud guard  by Visentin

One of my friends recently bought a brilliant mudguard. It is as simple as can be, made of a bent plastic folio, and attached to the fork just over the front wheel. It is discrete and can be removed at any time. No mention about the negligible weight. So, kind of jealous not to have the same (I have a rear one but in some occasions a front one is cruelly missing), I asked him about the brand in the evening, and found it costs approximately 10E in bike shops. Which isn't a lot, but I thought why the hell giving so much money for something so simple...

Bicycles</font>. Miniature Bicycles.  by chaberton

As a child I had a passion for modeling. I built everything (planes, ships, soldiers, etc..) and in all available materials (plastic, metal, acrylic, wood). I am always amazed by the lack of models dedicated to bicycles and their history, few companies dedicated themselves to scaling of these models which are unfortunately almost all failed. This album is dedicated to bicycles and modeling.

Flash back nearly two decades. Mountain bikes were just emerging from infancy. Cantilever brakes, rigid forks, and seven speed drive-trains were the rage. I often looked at these bikes in wonder back then with their fat tires, different geometry, and flat handlebars. Being intrigued with them from the start due to my back ground of stomping around the Wasatch Mountain Range in Utah was a give-in. I knew that I had to have one... which took time being a poor college student at that time.

Exilles is a wonderful little village set at eight hundred feet high in the Susa Valley. It occupies a small part of the valley and a plateau is situated halfway between Susa and Bardonecchia. Exilles has preserved its original appearance: houses, streets, woods that surround it, everything seems to have stopped, without that the time and modernity have scratched its charm. Behind this mountain village is an imposing fortress, "the Fortress of Exilles." He frightening proportions, so much so, that the village seen from above looks like a miniature. The fort was rebuilt in the late nineteenth century and since then, has kept all its facilities.

An electric motor mounted on the Mountain Bike will surely turn up their noses at many purists, but it is not a process for doing less work, but merely an exercise of electromechanical applied to our favorite vehicle. We say that is a good alternative to the scooter going so fashionable nowadays.

Few excursions in the autumn during which I had to take a lot of spare clothes, made me realize there was a need for something bigger, keeping all the advantages of the first. And, additionally, looking more like a "normal rucksack" when not cycling (OK, the first was orange...)

big apple Schwalbe big apple  by Visentin

The "apple" tire concept is one decade old, but with constantly increasing performance of the newest materials, large tires have become more and more fashionable due to the weight gain and increased resistance. Schwalbe Big Apple is, according to many, the most accomplished product in this familly, and is collapsing under an avalanche of slogans and titles. "Best tire of the year"... "Perfect commuting tire"...
