Thank you for your patience last week while we’ve transitioned the blog to the Rene Herse web site. We’ve moved all the old contents – blog posts and comments – to the new site, so everything continues to be available.
If you’ve bookmarked a blog post, the link no longer works. Replace the old web address and date with ‘www.renehersecycles.com,’ and you’ll be able to find your bookmarked posts. Below are the new links to six of our most popular posts:
- Seattle to Portland Through the Back Door. The post that started this blog back in 2010, long before ‘gravel’ became a category.
- Myths in Cycling (1): Wider Tires are Slower. From there, you can follow the entire ‘Myths in Cycling’ series.
- The Long Road to Dual-Purpose Knobbies. The story behind our knobby tires for paved rides, gravel, dirt, mud and snow.
- Why Handlebar Shapes Are Important. This post includes a guide to our Rene Herse handlebars.
- The Missing Piece: Suspension Losses. Where the energy goes that is lost when the bike is vibrating.
- Cyclodonia’s article on the J. P. Weigle from the Concours de Machines. Photos and details about the bike that we took to the French competition for the best ‘light randonneur bike.’
Make sure you subscribe to our newsletter to get updated when new posts are published. Use the box on the right side. We won’t use your information for anything else, and it’s easy to unsuscribe if you’re no longer interested.
I hope you’ll continue to enjoy this blog!
