Silca: the Dario Pegoretti Super Pista Collection Round Two
Silca_Pegor_03a


The first round of these went quick…

Silca’s Super Pista pumps already have a certain panache and when you turn one over as a canvas to an artist like Dario Pegoretti, they suddenly are elevated to art. For the latest run of Artist Series Super Pista floor pumps, Silca and Dario worked on 10 more pumps, ranging from $900 USD to $1,200 USD.

Expect these to go quickly once they hit the stock at Noon EDT on August 5th, so sign up to be alerted at Silca if you’d like to purchase one.

Manual for Speed Residency Kits – Sigrid Calon’ and Zio Ziegler Kits
manualforspeed_artistresidency2015_sigridlookbook-21-1680x1344

I have no way of describing what I’m seeing here, so we’ll just let Manual for Speed do the ‘xplaining:

“The way we see it Cycling Kit is an opportunity for Elevated Personal Expression. As such we’re proposing a complete break from the hegemonic monotony of Corporate Body Advertising. Rather than being an unwilling participant in some Business Company’s fall product campaign, why not express your own aesthetic; an aesthetic that says culture counts, style counts and god damn it, art counts.

What is it about bike racing that we love so much, is it the Chaos, the Color, the Motion and the Trajectory? Yeah, it’s that. So we told these five contemporary artists to Interpret that.”

Sigrid Calon’s and Zio Ziegler‘s Artist Residency Kits are now in stock at Manual for Speed.

7 Bikes for 7 Wonders: Crater Lake

DeSalvo Custom Cycles made one of the sickest titanium road bikes for the 7 Bikes for 7 Wonders, reflecting Crater Lake. Inspired by the glowing blue of the lake, this frame has a raw, exposed titanium rear triangle. This video was one of my favorites because it really captures the accessible vibes of Crater Lake, even though it omits to mention the incessant mosquitos!

Follow along at the 7 Bikes for 7 Wonders site to see how you can find this bike and take it home with you!

Baum Cycles: Turquoise and Navy Ristretto
Ristretto_Baum

I look at Baum’s work like many people look at brands that are constantly introducing new “colorways” or styles. Nike, for instance. Or New Balance, rather. Same shoe, different color and yet it evokes a Pavlovian response. Seriously, how many times have we looked at a titanium Baum frame here on the site? They still get me every time. For more drool-worthy, Australian goodness, check the Baum Flickr.

The Radavist 2015 Calendar: August
RAD_AUGUST2015_resize_1000

This is the eighth layout of the Radavist 2015 Calendar, entitled “Los Padres”. The camera, film and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.

With the summer in Texas, comes unbearable heat and an instinctual behavior to retreat to the far western reaches of the United States for some Cali vibes. The Los Padres mountains are by no means “cool” this time of year, but I’ll take an extra 15º any day. With tonality like this and endless possibles for road and dirt excursions, maybe it’s time to relocate… permanently.

For a high-res JPG, suitable for print and desktop wallpaper*, right click and save link as – The Radavist 2015 Calendar – August. Please, this photo is for personal use only!

SOLD OUT: New Jerseys
andre-5

Wardrobes over here are pretty subdued. Black jeans, black shirts, black boots. If color does get splashed in, it’ll usually be either camo, green, tan or grey. You know, the simple tones that make life interesting. While we’ve got nothing against bright, vibrant kit designs, they’re just not our thing. That’s why sticking to solid tones and hues makes sense to us.

Introducing two new Radavist jerseys and a short sleeve rendition of the collaboration jersey with Tracko. These include: a Battleship Grey Jersey with black accents, a “Sprinters” OD Green jersey with discharge tan accents and a Blackened Splinter Camo jersey, marked with Tracko and the Radavist insignia in white. Mix them with your favorite black bibs, or the Radavist bibs. Either way, they’ll look great.

Each jersey is made by hand in Los Angeles by Endo Customs and is in stock now with a retail of $125 plus shipping. These are sold out. Thanks for your support. We’ll be shipping them this week.
