Cycling Links for August 12 & 13

Somehow I’ve manage to lose track of time the last couple days again and get behind on posting these so here’s another combined list of the cycling related stuff I’ve discovered over the last couple days.

Recycle an inner tube and sprocket into a sweet belt.

Awesome video and photos of Dave Wiens vs. Lance Armstrong at this years Leadville 100.  What a showdown!

Ezra Caldwell, the 34 year old bike frame builder behind <a href="http://www.fastboycycles.com/">Fastboy Cycles</a> was diagnosed with colorectal cancer a few weeks ago and started a new blog documenting his cancer journey/battle. As a fan of his work and someone who lost his father to the same form of cancer I'm pulling for him big time.
