Baum Cycles: Disc Cubano
Baum_Disc_Cubano_01

Please, please, please, please, don’t make this another disc debate.

This is one of the best looking disc bikes I’ve seen and I have no idea why. Other than the fact that it’s a Baum and they seem to do no wrong. This Cubano is so amazing, down to the ENVE rims and minimal accents.

The Athletic: Tigre Time Sweatshirt
Tiger_TheAthletic

The Athletic’s tigre logo looks great in turquoise and even better on a sweatshirt. I did laugh a bit at the product description:

“When it comes to sweatshirts, the American Apparel California Raglan is our go to. It has been used by some of your (our) favorite brands out there. Big names in the industry like Golden Saddle Cyclery and the Team Dream Sunset Chasing Team. Teal and Blue have been a little bit of a go to for us as well. Put a tiger on it and there you have it. ”

Head over to the Athletic now to pick one up!

Freeriding in Iceland

Iceland is one of the most majestic places on Earth and what better way to showcase its stunning visuals than with a bunch of fluorescent freeriders ripping down its trails? This one’s good!

Mash SF: Film Canister Purist 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.

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.
