I saw we were speaking about bike air pumps. This is the one i use. Auto-select head that fit both Presta and Schrader valves, a dual-action design that pushes air on both the push and pull stroke for faster fill-ups, and a built-in pressure gauge for accurate inflation:

I fit it in the center pocket of my jerseys which have a dedicated mini pump pocket within them. I could also fit it on the bike with the water bottle holder.

I can also attest it can take a beating. It went flying during the crash that i suffered with mayra. It only had the small scratch you can see in the image.

The bikes are very sophisticated as well. Only makes sense to have the gear to go with it :) Ill take a picture of the small bag that goes under the seat of my bike. It carries two spare tubes, a multi-tool, two tire pliers, and a CO2 canister. Pretty amazing it all fits in such a small bag.

Even the jerseys we wear are specifically made for our use with pockets on the lower back. This way you dont have to stop while riding. You can reach back and grab something quick. The food as well we take is made for endurance.

This is what i eat for rides over 25 miles. I LOVE IT!!!! :)

Well maybe the quality of the lens makes you more confident to shoot these subjects :)

Im always up around 9am every day. I cant sleep more than that if not my body wakes up messed up. So i just get up and do some house chores early or ride out early. I was going to get my bike checked out but i started doing house chores and the time went into that.

Yup. Back there i cary some snacks if the ride is over 25 miles, the case for my riding glasses, the S95, a pair of shorts if im going to be out all day, and the NYC greenway map. Sounds like a lot but it all fits nice with room to spare.

Hey jd did you see im shooting raw this whole week and on the 11 hour airplane ride i made The Raw Club rules:D And they are as follows

First and for most this is meant to be a joke so don’t take this all serious :D


Before you read please be aware that you may find spelling errors and grammer problems. Please don’t take you time to tell me cause I don’t care. :lol:

The Official RAW Club

After a big decision of making the JPEG club I have made a executive decision to join the fan boys and find what RAW has to offer over JPEG. Why do we choose to shoot RAW? Cause we can control the look and feel of the photo instead of having the camera make adjustments for us. There are two rules as to being apart of the RAW club and they are as follows.
1. You shoot RAW when you are holding a camera no exceptions but ONE!!
2. The only exception is shooting sports or wildlife, as you need a faster and longer burst rate.
a. If you are caught using JPEG in a photo other then wildlife or sports you will be put to the wall of shame and be known as what I have been called- JPEG (insert name here)
Examples-
1) Assuming Julian (jdizzle) was caught using JPEG in a photo of his cute baby not only would be known as JEPG Julian but his baby would be disappointed in him as long as he is living!!!
2) Assuming Rick (Zerimar) was caught using JPEG in one of his amazing portraits. He would be known as JPEG Rick and forever be able to sleep in his house again and would be only allowed to sleep on his futon in his work!!
3) Assuming Omar (vipergts831) would be caught using a JPEG in one of his bike photography trips photos he would be known as JPEG Omar:rolleyes: and his bike would be banned from every road for the rest of his life :shock:
Get the point!!!! This goes for the rest of you to!!!!

List of confirmed RAW shooters sorted by join date.
1. Jake Fricks (Fricks) Founder of The Official Raw Club
2. Rick Rose (Zerimar)
3. Shane Hunter (ShaneHunter)
4. (KenjiS)
5. Justin (Jpepus)
6. Will (themadman)

List of banned and never to be accepted again (maybe)
1) Who wants to be the First?


If you would like to join send a PM with your first and last name I will add you to the list and you will be in heaven . Just remember if you get caught you will be added to the list so as you send a request to join remember its like signing a contract so you have been warned!!

Let the RAW Club Begin

Jake but what if you have a 1gb card on a 5dmkII. You cant shoot RAW unless you want only 5 pictures. You must in dire situations like that one switch to JPEG. :lol:
