Rivendell People

This is an old video by internet standards, but it’s a great look into what makes Rivendell tick: the people behind it. Check out out for some great video sections of what it’s like to tour in the hills outside of Walnut Creek, California.

Oslo, Norway may be home to some 600,000 people, yet I’d guess over half of them aren’t aware of what’s happening in the woods outside of town. That and this video also looks rad with a little bit of blast beats…

Full Windsor: The Breaker Tool

Full Windsor is taking their multi tool to new limits and needs the help of Kickstarter:

“Featuring a chain breaker with a tool grade stainless steel pin. The Breaker uses the tool bit extender as a handle, giving you the functionality of a workshop chain breaker in a multi tool. A magnetic tool bit slot is located in the tool’s end allowing the tool to be used like a screw driver. The Breaker is compact and fits nicely into a leather and recycled inner tube pouch. The Breaker is cast from stainless steel using a loss wax casting process and then is tool hardened. It is currently Patent Pending.

The tool weighs just 100g/3.5oz and magnetically houses 2 tool bits inside it’s structure. While the full tool pouch weighs just 185g/ 6.5oz.

The Breaker features:

Chain Breaker with tool hardened stainless steel pin (replaceable)
Glass filled nylon tyre lever with a steel core
Spoke key
3,4,5,6,8mm hex tool bits
Philips head screw driver (PH2)
T25 torx bit
Tool bit extender
Bottle opener
Leather (jet black or burnt brown) and recycled inner tube pouch “

Looks like a fun race!

Man, it’s been a long, long time since I’ve been to a Bike Kill. Looks like not much has changed, except for that Citi Bike tallbike!

Sold Out: The Radavist Slipmats
Radavist_Slipmat-2

I’d like to think and hope that a lot of you listen to vinyl, or have always listened to vinyl. If either of those is the case, then check out these new, nifty slipmats. Black logo printed on super dense, somewhat rigid felt (the good stuff), each mat will ship in a padded mailer and easily outlive your tires.

Shipping these is pricier than I’d like, but they’re still $10 Domestic and $15 International. Limited run of 100. Scoop one up below!
