Blau.

Nein, das war nicht das Ergebnis der Weihnachtsfeier meines Arbeitgebers gestern Abend. Obwohl, ein wenig blau nachts um 2 durch Bremen und den Schnee zu fahren hatte schon etwas. Ich spürte die Kälte nicht, machte mutige Dinge mit meinem Rad und wie immer passten ein Haufen Schutzengel auf mich auf uns geleiteten mich sicher nach Hause.

Nein, blau ist das:

SUGGESTIONS TO FOLLOW

There are a million excellent photographers on Instagram, but it’s becoming a place where people showcase their professional work instead of posting photos from their camera phone.

A few of my personal favorite cycling Instagramers I follow who largely post camera phone photos in their feeds:

Jered and Ashley Gruber. What can I say? Love their work.

Taylor Phinney’s Instagram feed gives us an insight into his life and what it’s like to be Taylor Phinney. Most of his photos are well composed too.

Team Sky is also doing a good job with Instagram, but most photos are of Wiggo on the TT bike or Cav doing something outrageous.

The only purpose of following Tom Boonen’s Instagram is to see what a day in the life of Tom Boonen is like.

Chris Benchetler’s feed is more about adventure photography, but there’s lot of cycling in there.

Dan Patitucci is another adventure travel photographer but has lots of excellent cycling photos as well. I’m just not certain how many came out of a camera phone

ALEX rip

Dr Alex Moulton, CBE (1920-2012)

Dr Alex Moulton CBE has died, aged 92. The British bicycle designer is best known for pioneering suspension in small wheeled road bikes, long before it was made popular by the mountain bike world.

The Moulton factory in Bradford upon Avon

The Moulton Bicycle Company paid tribute to their founder on their website: „It is with great sorrow that Shaun Moulton and The Moulton Bicycle Company announce the news that Dr. Alexander Eric Moulton CBE, distinguished engineer and inventor, passed away peacefully in the company of his family and staff on Sunday evening, 9th December 2012, at the age of 92.“

Alex Moulton was born on 9 April 1920. He studied engineering at Cambridge, moving into aircraft engine research during World War II before joining his family’s rubber company, Spencer Moulton and Co. After the company was sold, he set up Moulton Developments Limited, where he designed and produced the Hydrolastic suspension for the Mini.

In the late 1950s he started designing small wheeled bicycles, which were launched to the public in 1962 under the Moulton name. His bikes were notable for their non-conventional frames, small wheels with high pressure tyres to reduce rolling resistance, and rubber-based front and rear suspension.

The Moulton company enjoyed success during the ’60s and were bought by Raleigh in 1967, who mass produced Moultons but stopped in 1974 due to a sales decline. Dr Alex Moulton reacquired the rights to the name and relaunched the company in 1983 with the AM Spaceframe. In 1988, at the start of the off-road boom, he produced the first full suspension mountain bike, the AM-ATB.

Moulton partnered with Pashley (for a lower priced all-terrain bike) and Bridgestone (on an aluminium framed model, based on the original F Frame) in the 1990s and 2000s but largely kept all design, development and manufacturing under one roof. He never lost his flair for original, innovative design and his talents will be missed.

Moultons are still being produced at their factory in Bradford on Avon under general manager and Alex’s nephew Shaun Moulton. For more information, visit www.moultonbicycles.co.uk.
