We're back from Belgium and still buzzing!

We had a blast at Velofollies this year! Twotone was honored to be supporting both Classified & PRO at the show. Read more about that below. : ) Not only did we pound the pavement at the expo lliasing with editors, industry partners and new contacts but also managed to get a ride in as well! (Ricky did almost get arrested for doing a bunny hop but that's a story for another issue!)

This week is about following up on 4 proposals sent the past week, gearing up for Shift Cycling Culture's Environmental Impact Cycling Barcamp here in Amsterdam on Friday and maybe a (train) ride down to Roubaix for Vera Cycling's new store opening.

Next week is a long overdue tattoo from former Twotone colleague Frank vd Sman on Monday, the next episode of The Mechanics of Joy on Thursday & heading to Murcia, Spain for a week with the Gravel Collective on Friday!

Wishing you a great week ahead and, as always, thank you for reading & sharing this newsletter,

Fox “Active Valve” suspension predicts terrain w/ wireless sensors & radar!

"predictive (radar! lasers!) terrain monitoring and additional on-bike sensors, and it can adjust suspension proactively"
"Every motorsport bans “active” suspension management in competition [and] mountain biking is the only sport where it’s (currently) allowed, and both Fox and Rockshox (and maybe SR Suntour) have products available to their top racers, with (most of) those systems also available commercially for recreational riders."

Pretty wild report about it  on The Lunch Ride!

Nick Cave on the Antidote to Our Existential Helplessness

"Even our smallest actions have potential for great change, positively or negatively, and the way in which we all conduct ourselves within the world means something."

Something to keep in mind!


Joachim Baan & the "New Combination"

Awesome to hear Joachim's story!

My friend Joachim Baan was interviewed by the Blamo! Podcast, a weekly podcast hosted by Jeremy Kirkland that discusses the way fashion plays a part in our society. Joachim is the creative director for Atelier Munro, a partner in the legendary denim store Tenue de Nimes, the founder of Another Something, a designer & all around great guy!

Joachim and Jeremy discuss building a brand, his design philosophy, why you shouldn’t focus on the data, the collaboration effect with brands, Atelier Munro, and working for passion vs. the paycheck.


Worth a listen!
