Sunny Sunday

There were good times to be had over the weekend. Once the sun turns in our favor, it becomes difficult to not abide. And ultimately the dude abides. It’s amazing the speed that is carried with wider tires and and the assurance of consistent braking due in part to the disc brakes. After descending at 50+ mph in gusty crosswinds, it’s hard not to be impressed with those...

Riding the American Countryside

Weekend Ride: Countryside U.S.A.Elevation: Varies, Flat Grade Even though, for many of us, work is located inside city walls, escaping to the rural areas of America can provide the sweetest of treats – open stretches of solitude, growth, and fresher air. In the Spring and early Summer, alfalfa begins to green and for vast stretches of tarmac, the green steals the show. Another favorite is the incredibly vibrant sunset that follow the end of stronger storms. The pink jersey of the Giro doesn’t quite compare to the hues of salmon...

Achievement

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” - Maya Angelou Achievement is at the heart of long distance cycling. Volagi riders, in order to achieve their goals will go through many changes and evolutions not only during training, but many times, during that ride. We create bikes for that rider – the rider that seeks challenges, achievements, and ultimately personal evolution. Keep finding new achievements, and we’ll engineer bikes that rise to the...

LONGBOW FLEX™ STAY SUSPENSION The patented LongBow Flex™ stay is a radical departure from the norm. We separated the seat stays from the seat tube and lengthened it to maximize the carbon fibers inherent ability to absorb road vibrations. We then optimized the shape and carbon layup of each stay, further enhancing the bike’s ability to flex vertically while remaining stiff horizontally for control and efficient power transfer. Patented flex stay design with maximum vibration absorbing technology Vertical compliance (5.5mm/kN) for...

Kiki’s Crush

Words & Pictures – Kiki K. “It’s been 11 years since I bought a road bike and only really in the last 4 years have I gotten “serious.” I rode SF to LA in 2012 and 2013 for AIDS/Lifecycle.  This year to keep up with my training for ALC2014, I took my old bike to Australia’s Gold Coast during a 7 week stay (telecommuting for work).  It became quite clear while cycling with some blokes, I was outperforming my equipment and it was time to buy a new bike.  The blokes helped me get my average speed from 12mph...

A Short Trip

A Short Trip – Bellevue, WA “My Viaje is my daily commuter so I don’t generally have any tremendous news to report apart from lighter or heavier than normal traffic. A generous driver here, a discourteous one there, etc. But up in the Seattle area the weather has been amazing for the last week and I finally got out for a midweek camping trip along the Green River. I loaded the VV (Volagi Viaje) up with gear and after work on Wed night rode about 30mi from the office out to the campsite, it’s a beautiful ride along a couple rivers...

Omar’s Mixed Terrain Adventure

“Here are some photos from a mixed terrain ride I “stumbled upon” yesterday.  I would highly recommend it if you’re in or visiting the Ogden area.  Unless you take a mountain bike, there will be quite a bit of hiking in the beginning, so a lightweight Viaje setup seems a good tool for the job.  The ride really begins with a long climb up North Ogden Divide to the Skyline trailhead south.  An overcast day would make perfect conditions to try to make it to the top of Lewis Peak (8,022′), but otherwise to wear...

Barley’s custom ride

Barley Forsman Co-Founder and Industrial designer extraordinaire for Volagi  has as many miles on a gear bike as he does on his fixed gear bikes. Yes, he has more than one, but his favorite is his own creation. You can call it the “envy” of many fixed gear cyclists. Barley established his place as “bad a**” fixed gear rider when he raced Furnace Creek 508 and set the record for the Fixed gear category. That year, he had done all of his training miles, commute miles, recreation miles, rest miles on a fixed gear bike. Of...
