    Welcome Liteville to the SF Bike Expo

    Because we want to construct no less than the best suspension mountain bike suspensions on the market … and just to build it. said even more direct: We want to build the bikes that we have always wanted from other manufacturers:

    Mountain bikes that implement new and innovative ideas without compromising on design or production – support the development of one of the best testing laboratories in Europe, the Syntace Labs.

    Mountain bikes – although extremely stable and rigid – are always so easy as possible, because every detail just so much material is used, as is absolutely necessary.

    Mountain bikes with the best possible active-neutral suspension, which contributes to a low effort, agile handling and a silky smooth throttle response.

    Mountain bikes that perform better, exceeding the world’s most rigorous testing standards, and – again, without compromise – just come on the market, if they are really fully developed. Guaranteed for 10 years, plus a customer service comes from the heart. Even after the purchase.

    The laws of physics are not concerned with us, but we must pay attention to them – especially when there’s a headwind! By applying technology and science to the bicycle, we are able to build human-powered machines that carry us over mountains and down the road with more speed and efficiency than ever before, thereby unleashing your full potential.

    And thats exactly what we like best at Syntace!

    Welcome Bay Area Lawyer Rahman Law PC to the SFBE
    Thursday, November 8, 2012 @ 8:00 am
    Posted by Long

    We are Bay Area bicycle lawyers. As bike riders, we understand the unique issues facing cyclists, especially when riding in busy urban areas. The lawyers at RAHMAN LAW PC advocate on behalf of cyclists through private organizations, City hearings and in the media to make the streets safer for two-wheeled vehicles. We have also obtained significant results for clients in bicycle cases.

    Although the number of cyclists in urban areas in California increases each year, with this increase comes an increase in collisions both with other vehicles and single bicycle collisions caused by roadway defects. While some public entities have tried to evaluate increased safety measures to decrease conflicts between cyclists and other modes of transportation, by and large these efforts have not gone far enough.

    There are many issues that riders face every day which are unique. There are also special laws for bicyclists which we at RAHMAN LAW PC utilize to best represent our clients. Finally, we work with the most skilled experts in the field of two-wheeled vehicle collisions to obtain the needed evidence to show the other driver’s fault. Bicycles are different from cars. Through our representation of hundreds of riders, we have educated the public and insurance companies about what car drivers can do to properly share the road with bicyclists. Part of our goal in representing riders is to change the public perception of riders to one that is a positive image.

    At RAHMAN LAW PC, we have a track record of verdicts and settlements which show our successful handling of personal injury cases arising out of traffic collisions. If you are injured in a traffic collision involving a car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, cab, or bus or if you were a pedestrian hit by a vehicle, contact us today for an appointment with skilled trial attorneys.

    Come see AT’s Showdown sponsor Hitcase at the SF Bike Expo
    Wednesday, November 7, 2012 @ 2:00 pm
    Posted by Long

    Hitcase™ started as a pretty simple idea. We have iPhones, and so do all of our friends. Our friends are a pretty active bunch and generally like to get themselves into situations which are either wet, dirty or both. Then throw themselves and their bikes, boards or whatever into the air. Not a good place for an iPhone to be. We also like to take pictures and film things when were doing all of the above, but need our hands to keep things under control.
    Enter Hitcase™

    Hitcase is the easiest way for you to mount and protect your iPhone in the most challenging conditions. It’s made to be simple for you get your phone in and out of and is designed with a wide angle lens to help you get the best perspective on the action. It’s waterproof. It’s dust proof. It’s ruggedized. It’s mountable. It’s made to take a beating and then take another one, and then take a call from your grandma. “Yo Grandma!”

    We love our iPhones. They have pictures of our dogs, girlfriends, wives, kids, moms, dads and the other people and places we want to remember. We also want to have videos of that amazing sea turtle and the beach in Oahu, or from the A-line at Whistler bike park, or snow-boarding at Mt. Hood. With Hitcase™, you will never miss another minute of gnarly cranking down the mountain or fire side at your fav campsite in the backcountry, or roasting down the hill on skis. You won’t miss it because you’ve got a Hitcase.
    Hitcase. Hit it.™

    On this page, we have some pictures showing you some of our adventures while we were designing and testing Hitcase. It’s a lot of work building a product like this, and more than a few sleepless nights trying to figure things out but it’s been more than worth it. We’ve learned a ton, been to some new places and met some amazing new people. We are looking forward to a lot more of all that…

    Thanks a bunch,
    The Hitcase Team

    P.S. If you ever want to drop us a line, we would love to hear from you. You can reach us from our contact page.

    DZR Shoes makes it back for another year at the SF Bike Expo
    Wednesday, November 7, 2012 @ 9:08 am
    Posted by Long

    Simply put, DZR was born out of a passion for a life of riding – on city streets and mountain trails and anywhere else you can get two wheels. Which we think is pretty much everywhere. We’ve lived in many places and it is from this nomadic lifestyle that the concept of our shoes was born.

    With a dedication to product design and development, we sought a way to combine the cycling and the casual life. Through extensive research we created comfortable, stylish walking shoes that maintain an drinks at the bar, dinner and a movie, or a joy ride with friends. Created in the Swiss Alps and brought to you from the heart of San Francisco, DZR is proud and happy to give you the solution for life on and off the bike. We think it will be an easy transition. Ride on.
