Just a few thoughts because the video speaks for itself:

  1. I had a perma-grin the entire time I watched this.
  2. I wish I was capable of rides like this. My body would rebel at 50 miles.
  3. Probably the perfect terrain for the Slate.
  4. Watching this made me want to immediately go out and shoot video.
  5. This is what a Wes Anderson 70s western with a title guy resurrected from the 20s would look and sound like.

Addendum: Jonathan Neve is my spirit animal.

Essential ‘Grams with @gvngld

For this episode, we’re returning to los Estados Unidos, more specifically, la República de Chicago to hang out with @gvngld. For the most part, I’ve been profiling IGers who lean more to the lifestyle and mood capturing of cycling. Gavin, however, leans towards capturing race action and culture, among other things. The last set of images he posted from the Cyclocross World Championships, ATMO, are some of his best.

@gvngld Profile

Tell us a bit about yourself.

Long story short, I hamburger’d my shins countless times in the 80s by taking department-store BMX bikes off jumps they weren’t meant to handle in western Michigan.

Discovered photography in the late 90s, which at the time meant shooting hundreds of rolls of black and white film and hand-developing in chemicals.

Skipping ahead over a lot of crappy jobs and a couple years as a freelancer, back to a steady adult job, as boring as that is.

Bikes came back into my life in the mid-00s – driving and parking in Chicago sucks, it’s usually faster to commute by bike. Joined a bike forum, made friends, started racing track bikes and then cyclocross, never really put the camera down for long.

Still take a pedal to the shins once in a while though it’s probably safe to say I’m retired from racing.

How or why do you use Instagram?

For a while, it was to share photos of my long doggo sleeping in weird positions and the occasional bike photo as it was a lot easier than maintaining a website or a blog.

It’s a fun outlet and sometimes people like the photos I take, but if I was trying to make a living again doing photography in exchange for money I’d probably have a nervous breakdown. There’s a lot of self-selling in the business side that my personality just isn’t wired to deal with.

 

Instagram Photo

 

What do you shoot with?

A little bit of iPhone, there’s some older stuff from a Canon 5D3, but after close to 20 years of Canon, I’ve moved entirely over to Fuji X-Pro2 and X-T2 mirrorless bodies with a smattering of lenses.

 

Instagram Photo

 

What’s your post-processing routine?

With the Fuji bodies, the RAW files go to one memory card and the jpgs to the other, and I have the X-Pro2 glued to their Acros film simulation preset with a bit of added contrast for the jpg output. The jpgs get imported into Lightroom on an iPad Pro, tinkered a bit with the pencil, then airdrop to my phone for posting. The RAW files go into Lightroom on the computer for more intensive corrections if needed.

 

Instagram Photo

 

What’s your selection process for posting an image?

I wish I was disciplined enough to stay ‘on brand’ and have some kind of theme, but I don’t know if I have enough of a distinct style to really do that – I could probably post only black and white for a long time and not be bothered about it.

Looking back through the stream, there’s some alternating between the bright/kinetic/punchy and the quieter/more contemplative stuff, but I haven’t necessarily pursued that, it’s more stream-of-consciousness. First I have to like the photo, if I think others will like it, that’s a bonus.

Essential ‘Grams with @rodpedals

@rodpedals first caught my attention not through the #outsideisfree or #roadslikethese porn pics that I typically can’t get enough of, but through a unique take on the #kitgrid (@kitgrid). It was just a little twist on the traditional flat lay—he rotated approximately 45º, laid the #kitdoping assortment on a well-lit hardwood floor, and nearly always including the fronds of a houseplant. The posts are always on point with the color matching and are continually fresh and fun to look at.

Once you dig a bit into his feed, you’re instantly met with a full-on assault of the pure stoke for cycling. Lots of GoPro wide-angle shots from an array of angles with his favorite being #lifebehindbars, blazing down a beautiful stretch of road in and around London (Richmond Park gets plenty of love).

Tell us a bit about yourself.

Filipino by birth, Australian and British by pride (it’s complicated, LOL). Moved from Sydney, Australia to London, UK about 10 years ago and that’s where my love for cycling began.

Cycling provides me the freedom to clear my thoughts and enjoy mother nature. I venture out alone quite often. I am entangled in my love affair with solitude. As the saying goes, “I’m not anti-social, I’m pro-solitude”.

I use my love for photography to document and use Instagram as the platform to share my experiences, thoughts, and vibe—be it solitude thru #lifebehindbars and my various #sockdoping and #kitgrid posts. I’ve fallen in love with chasing the pro peloton and have done Tour de France twice and this year, focusing on the spring classics and Giro d’Italia.

An ambassador for Cane Creek (@canecreekusa), Pedal Mafia (@pedalmafia), Nove Bikes (@novebikes) and RR Threads (@RRThreads). A believer in collaborations, not taking things too seriously, laughs, and good vibes only (life’s to short not to)!

 

Instagram Photo

 

How or why do you use Instagram?

First and foremost, to share my personal experiences and adventures. I’m not just a producer, but also a consumer on Instagram. I find inspiration thru everyone’s journey, posts, photos, and stories. This helps me develop and drive my own cycling goals and try out new ways to document my experience.

I’ve also met many friends thru Instagram globally and some, I’ve cycled with, shared a story or two and park up for coffee (plus cake!). It gives me the platform to meet like-minded individuals who share similar passions in cycling and everything else around it.

 

Instagram Photo

 

What do you shoot with?

My pride and joy is my Canon 1DX. Her name is “Big Betty”. She is accompanied by a 50mm F1.2L and a 16-35 F2.8L II which I shoot with during cycling events like the Tour De France. I’m starting to learn how to shoot with my Sony RX100 MK V on the bike. I don’t know how other people do it! But on the bike, I primarily shoot with my GoPro 4, but have since upgraded to a GoPro 6.

 

Instagram Photo

 

What’s your post-processing routine?

I shoot RAW with my 1DX and RX100. I edit in Lightroom but sometimes also use Photoshop or Illustrator. When time is scarce, I go direct to my phone from the RX100, primarily for my #sockdoping and #kitgrid posts. With my GoPro, I go straight to phone. For post/edits on the go and on the phone, I use VSCO or Instagram (manual edit). I use various collage/grid based apps for Stories to freshen it up a bit.

 

Instagram Photo

 

What’s your selection process for posting an image?

Sometimes we can overthink and overwork what we post. At the end of the day, I share and post what I am feeling at the time. I have a camera with me every time I ride cause you never know where your ride will take you (from location, to experiences, and feelings during the ride). So I try and capture that moment and post my thoughts, experiences, and feelings together with the imagery that best fits.

I love diving into Instagram through the suggested accounts or checking out profiles of users leaving a comment on images of those I already follow. I do it too much, however, considering I’m following over 4,500 people. Despite only seeing 1/10th of those due to the algorithm, I need to bring that number down.

Jiri Parizek. Born 1980 in Czech Republic. Amateur cyclist, PRO father, and part-time photographer. Working as a graphic designer in a graphic design studio based in Brno, Czech Republic.

How or why do you use Instagram?

I started with Instagram more than 6 years ago as my “photo diary” without any expectations or goals… I just gave on IG pictures of what I really like and I think I do same today as I did before. I don’t count followers. If people like my feed I’m happy… if not, I don’t care.

On the other hand, Instagram has given me a lot of opportunities and I am grateful for it.

 

Instagram Photo

 

What do you shoot with?

As a photographer, I would like to use a better equipment on the bike, but as a cyclist, I really need a small and easy to handle camera. I’m not going with my DSLR over shoulder… many people do it like that – I think it’s crazy. Most of my pictures are taken with a simple small compact camera—Sony RX100 MKIII or iPhone 6s.

What’s your post-processing routine?

I’m old school! Haha☺ I’ve been working with Adobe Photoshop since 1998. I’m still working this way with some modified VSCO presets.

What’s your selection process for posting an image?

I don’t select pictures very much. I’m posting on IG what I like and what it can be interesting for other people who ride bikes. I’m happy if they like it! It’s easy like that!:)))

Next trip’s going to a short one. Heading south into the heartland of the Spring Classics, we visit with Ayse Van Laethem in Belgium. Ayse’s images are the type that makes me want to drop what I’m doing and immediately get outside and capture beautiful images with mirrorless sensors. They also force me to question my own images, reminding me I need to concentrate more on composing, re-explore the subtleties of available light, and to push for a more cohesive aesthetic for my feed. Her post-processing tones are goals.

Tell us a bit about yourself.

I always found it quite weird to talk about myself, but here it goes. Hi there, My name is Ayse Van Laethem, I’ve been walking this place called earth for 22 years now. Born in the country that is known for 4 things: beer, chocolate, fries, and you guessed it—cycling (🇧🇪). Fortunately us cyclists like the first 3 things as well. Next to cycling, I am a storyteller, I enjoy taking the occasional picture, and am a lover of coffee rides.

This year will be the most interesting yet, I will join the women’s elite racing category, will try to make my hobby my (part-time) job and travel to some incredibly beautiful places.

How or why do you use Instagram?

It is my own little outlet, my little public diary even. I post whatever, whenever and I like that freedom. It is mostly used for cycling shots, as that is what I’m up to the most next to work. It’s my hobby next to my hobby.

 

Essential ‘Grams With @ayse.vl

 

What do you shoot with?

I shift between everything a little, mostly with my Fuji XE-2 with a Fujinon 35 1.4 lens (I find it a super versatile lens, and use it the most), sometimes iPhone, and much less than I used to analog. For that, I use a Fujica st801, Fujinon 55 1.4 lens, with my favourite film Kodak Portra 400.

Right now I am looking to either upgrade to a better Fujifilm body or switch everything over to Sony. Had the pleasure to use the sony of a friend with some incredible Zeiss lenses and just fell in love with the simplicity of Sony and the user-friendliness.

 

Instagram Photo

 

What’s your post-processing routine?

I always take my pictures through Adobe Lightroom. I developed my own filter, that I can play around with a bit, to have a bit of coherence on my profile.

What’s your selection process for posting an image?

It is very dependent on my mood. Usually, it is a shot of that exact day, if I am feeling a bit nostalgic I will go for a latergram. The shot needs to go along a bit with the previous ones that I posted but besides that I just kind of go with the flow.

The benefits of producing the lock in the USA while constantly looking for feedback from users is evident in OTTO re-engineering their first model. The press release below details the changes.

Ottolock Gets an Update

OTTOLOCK Implements Design And Durability Upgrades To The Popular Gear Lock

OTTO DesignWorks LLC – ottodesignworks.com – is excited to announce some strong upgrades to the popular OTTOLOCK that makes the innovative multi-purpose gear lock even better. Introducing OTTOLOCK Version 2 (V2):

The original OTTOLOCK’s patent-pending, multi-layer steel band design makes it more durable than a cable lock while its sleek design and space-saving size quickly made it a favorite for short stops. Always striving for perfection, OTTOLOCK turned to customers and professional athletes for input on their ground-breaking design to make OTTOLOCK V2 even better.

Based on user feedback OTTO re-engineered the band tip to better stand up to the wear and tear of active use by utilizing a new durable, streamlined insert. Additionally, a new Cerakote® ceramic paint offers a tough matte finish that is chip and scratch resistant while providing an extremely durable coating making this the best OTTOLOCK to date.

The locking mechanism itself has also been updated, providing a smoother experience and increasing the short-term security that OTTOLOCK has become known for. Produced entirely in the USA, OTTO can take real-time feedback from users and improve the product quickly and efficiently. OTTOLOCK V2 is a direct reflection of user feedback.

Because CX ruins everything around me (violin sob story music), I’m playing catch up with some of the products sent to me in the past few months. #MailDrops include the Kilo Dopp Kit Bag (#toiletries) and Merino Arm Warmers from Chrome, the bikepacking Bindle Rack, Astroid, Gravity, and daybright Daybot lights from Portland Design Works, maple and coffee nutrition from UnTapped, and ALL THE CX STICKERS from Cross Is Coming, plus one from Ptap Designs.

Also, updates on ASK A PRO and my Essential ‘Grams 🔥🔥🔥 Instagrammer interviews.
