Bastion Cycles Uses 3D Printed Titanium Lugs with Carbon Tubes
gallery-04

We’ve seen previous examples of using 3D printing to not only develop a bicycle frame, but inform its design. In my opinion using this technology to manufacture custom lugs which are then bonded to carbon tubing, resulting in a truly customizable geometry is one of the more practical uses, and that’s what Bastion Cycles is attempting to offer… Their website is up in its infancy, but there’s plenty of information to keep you engaged. Not to mention that clean disc road build!

SOLD OUT! The Radavist National Forest Sign Socks
National_Forest_Socks-2

We love our Angeles National Forest here in LA and the sign leading up to the Angeles Crest along Highway 2 has become an icon for road and MTB rides. These socks were inspired from the simple color palette found across the nation in National Forests, resulting in a split tone sock with minimal branding. The colors are “natural” and “brown”, with the Radavist script on the underside of the foot. Made by DeFeet in North Carolina from their AirEater double cuff model, these socks will last through the seasons and provide the compression and comfort you’ve come to expect from the brand.

In stock now for $16 plus shipping ($5 Domestic and $12 International.) Before you ask, we cannot combine your order with the fleeces we posted earlier in the week. A completely different fulfillment center is shipping these orders. We wanted to launch these items separately to give everyone a chance to purchase. Again, thanks for the support!

Rapha Updates their Classic Jersey
Screen Shot 2016-02-10 at 8.27.36 AM

Many people say classics never go out of style and while that may be true, sometimes they need an update. Rapha took their most iconic jersey and gave it a few reconfigurations related to on-the-bike fit. I gotta say, the Classic jersey has always been my favorite piece of Rapha apparel and it is without a doubt the piece they built their whole look upon.

See more at Rapha.

Tuesday Trail Treat
LeicaM-123

It’s been a while since Kyle, Sean and I have ridden from the early morning til sundown. Particularly because of the shorter winter days. When we saw the temperature was going to break 90º today, we planned a ride out to Dirt Mulholland with our friend Josh who was visiting from Austin.

Unfortunately for photos, the bright and hot mid-day sun results in less-than-ideal lighting but fortunately for photos, that just means you gotta relish the radness. Nothing crazy happened in terms of the riding, but we had fun cashing in our daylight chips on endless dirt…

Check out a few more photos below.
