In Stock: Howdy Western Shirt Series – the Cactivist
Howdy_Cactivist-1

“Howdy” is an abbreviation of “how do you do?” and when you say it either on the street or trail, it always gets a smile. Using Western-themed cartoons as inspiration, I pinged Kyler Martz to do a couple of shirts, the first being the Cactivist.

They’re printed on American Apparel white cotton pocket t-shirts, with three color hits by our friends at FUN. In stock now for $28 + shipping. Scoop one up below.

Barry’s Ride the Griffith Observatory Maps
RidetheObservatory-1

Our friend Barry just made prints of this awesome map, detailing the rides you can do in Griffith Park, namely the Observatory:

“As I said about the first run: Everyone knows that #LASucksForCyling. Really, it’s terrible. Don’t move here to ride bikes. But if you do, you’ll find out that it’s actually pretty great. I live on the east side, which means that Griffith Park is one of my regular stomping grounds. There are dozens of loops to ride through the park, not too much car traffic and lots of weird LA history (Table 29?).

Looming large over the park is the Observatory. It’s a perfect little after work climb, mid-commute high-point or sightseeing stop. So how do you get there? Wonder no more. ”

18×24, one-color screen print on some nice, heavyweight French Co. paper. Each one signed & numbered. $35, shipping included. Scoop one up at BarryMCW.

CaliforniaSagebrushJersey-5

I just wanted to update everyone on the Sage jersey pre-orders. They’re ALMOST done. The fabric supplier was behind and ENDO’s estimate of early-mid September got pushed back a few weeks. I should have them in my hands any day now and will ship them ASAP. I’ll keep everyone posted… Thanks for your patience! xoxox

This nifty design has a 15lb – 20lb max capacity, so if you’re putting any more weight in your bag, you’ll have to use a rack.

Winter Bicycles Ambassador Porteur
DSC_5374

Timeless design and modern technology pair up nicely with the latest from Winter Bicycles. The Ambassador is a fillet brazed frame, with a disc-specific lugged fork and made-to-measure “French Point” stem. For gearing, the Ambassador relies on an internal Alfine Di2 hub. The lighting is integrated to the frame with a SON hub powering Edelux lamp and the Velocity wheels roll on Compass tires. Braking relies on XT hydraulic discs and White Industries tops out the build. As for the paint, it was laid down by Todd Eroh.

Check out more details of this lovely project at Winter.
