Mission Workshop Escapes to the North

With the northeast succumbing to Mother Nature’s frozen fingers this week, SF-based Mission Workshop drops this reminder on us, showcasing the beauty of the Norwegian coastline. Remember, no matter how cold it is where you are right now, there’s always somewhere colder!

“At the earliest sign of winter’s end, brothers Janne and Samu Amunét ventured towards the Arctic Circle. Constant travelers, they were eager to leave their home in Helsinki and explore the recently thawed Lofoten archipelago on the northern coast of Norway for their first road trip of the year. The twenty-four hour drive would take them through parts of Finland, Sweden and Norway still solidly frozen. However upon arriving on the coast the weather tempered. Usually a destination for summer trips, the idyllic village of Å was empty and quiet in a way only remote places can be.”

Over the past week, Disqus – the comment platform used on the site – added a feature to all forums called Promoted Comments. Their reasoning was something along the lines of “Fortune 500 companies will pay to have their products advertised on your site.” Uh, not cool, guys. Personally, I see features like that on click-hole websites, not on a community like this.

Problem is, there was no “opt out” / “enable” button on the Disqus admin menu. So all forums were forced into this. Which sucks.

After a week of back and forth, mixed in with angry Tweets directed at Disqus, they claim to have disabled them for the Radavist. Hopefully this means they’re gone for good, because they were an eyesore and I apologize.

In the future, if you see any, screenshot them and post them up in the comments, please.

Thanks for your patience…

Endo Customs Launches New Website and Brand Lineup
Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 2.11.13 PM

Endo Customs makes performance cycling wear in downtown Los Angeles. For the past few years, amidst all the custom orders they’ve filled, Endo has been working on their own, unique Brand lineup. Now, for the first time, Endo’s in-house brand is available for purchase. Including base layers, jerseys, bibs, t-shirts and water bottles. I gotta say, I’m stoked to see this patten finally on some apparel. It’s been hanging in the Endo shop for over two years!

Head over to Endo Customs now to check out their full brand lineup.

For the Love of Mud Kit Pre-Order Ends Tonight
Mud-face-crop

The film For the Love of Mud had a successful launch here in Austin during the Cyclocross National Championships and I’m pretty gutted to have missed it. To help recoup some of the costs of such an overwhelming project, they’ve been running a kit pre-order, which ends tonight – sorry for the last minute notice.

If you’re interested in putting a pre-order in, now’s your last chance. There are men’s and women’s kits, along with vests. Head over to For the Love of Mud to see more.

Untapped is a Go!
Untapped

On the bike nutrition is pretty easy these days, but once you weed out all the unpronounceable ingredients, you begin to second guess just how healthy some of it is. Imagine if you could just pull something directly from nature, that gave you energy, had antioxidant power, was delicious and naturally water soluble. That’s the idea behind Ted King’s Untapped.

100% pure Vermont Maple Syrup in easy to carry pouches. Oh and socks and bottles. Head over to Untapped to see the full lineup and ask your shop about carrying it.
