Mash SF: Film Canister Purist Bottles
Mash_Film_Bottles

As I was dropping a few rolls of film off yesterday, I thought to myself “I wonder who will make the first film canister bicycle bottles?” Well, that answers that. Personally, this is my all time favorite bottle flip.

Pedal ED: Mido Riding Boots
Mido_Riding_Boots

Out of all of the Pedal ED products, the Mido Riding Boots are my favorite and what’s not to love about them? Made in Italy, by hand, these boots offer a weather-resistant exterior with a Vibram sole, perfect for gripping pedals and even icy sidewalks. While they don’t have any clipless capabilities, they make for great winter commuter boots.

And, they look damn sharp!

Hope Cyclery’s Mean Green Salsa Blackborow Fatbike
Fatbik_01

Jarrod Bunk from Hope Cyclery has one rad looking fatbike. His Salsa Blackborow is kitted out with so many great components that it’s too good to not share. Industry Nine, Chromag and recently, he upgraded to NEXT SL cranks and Reverb dropper.

I kinda can’t wait to ride mine in the snow again. It’s so much fun. Thanks for sharing Jarrod and thanks for the bourbon at Interbike!

FYXO: GSC and the Concrete Jungle
FYX_3672

Photos by Andy White

Looking through the latest gallery on FYXO has all kinds of nostalgic gears spinning in my head. It was one of my favorite trips to Los Angeles and easily one of the best road trips on the west coast.

Many months ago, Andy visited LA and documented the whole trip, extensively. Seriously, the mate always had his camera on him. Over a year later and he finally shared them all in one gigantic gallery.

Head over to FYXO to see more!

Sklar Bikes: Purple ‘Cross with Ultegra 6800
Sklar_Cross-01

I have a penchant for purple bikes and even though ‘cross is almost done for the year, it doesn’t mean we can’t keep oogling bikes like the latest from Adam Sklar.

This frame is built from OX platinum with a 44mm headtube and 142×12 spacing. This offers a stiff rear end, but an ovalized top tube bent stays offer compliance when needed. Not a lot of cross bikes have internal top tube cable routing, but this one totes it with pride.

To round it out, Adam’s client is running Ultegra 6800 with Shimano mechanicals and a Stans/DT wheelset.

I love it when bikes are built with practicality in mind. See more at Sklar’s Flickr.

The Radavist Guide to Surviving Austin During Cyclocross Nationals
CROSS-TEXAS

Where do I eat? What’s the weather going to be like? Where can I ride? Where’s a good bar? What shop can I ship my bike to?

Trust me, this post is out of absolute necessity. The number of emails I have received over the past few weeks regarding ‘Cross Nationals is insane. Everyone wants to know what the locals know and you know what? That’s really rad. Austin is a great town!

Fear not. The crew at the Radavist has prepared an extensive list to help you prepare and enjoy the 2015 Cyclocross Nationals in Austin, Texas, beginning with your gear list…

See the full spread below.

Rothera Cycling: Team Za Jersey
Rothera_Pizza

Oh, pizza. How I love thee.

Rothera’s got the perfect ride motivator (pizza) printed up in an homage to Team Z. Made by Castelli, these jerseys aren’t going to last long. Like a pizza at a bike shop on a Friday afternoon, they’re gonna go fast! Pick up a Rothera Cycling Team Za jersey while it’s still piping hot.

Kitsbow for the Ladies
dark_any_0_womensbase2

Women’s apparel is often overlooked by companies, which is why it’s nice to see Kitsbow with a nod to the ladies. Introducing the new Kitsbow Women’s Base Shorts. Designed for women, with a female-specific chamois and a refined fit. I love the men’s version, so I imagine these are a suitable option for women as well.

It helps a lot when your teammate just so happens to be a expert at frame design and painting, especially when you win the 2013 California State ‘Cross Championships. Garrett Chow recently completed and photographed this bike for Mash-teammate, Walton Brush. Even if it did come at the end of the season, it’s still an incredible machine!

Check out some words by Garrett and more photos below!
