The Radavist 2014 Calendar: August
RAD_AUGUST2014-800

This is the eighth layout of the Radavist 2014 Calendar, entitled “Hot Summer”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.

In Texas, we can ride two times during the day: early morning and late, late afternoon. The sun just cooks us the rest of the day, so each night, we take to the hills and watch the sun set on Central Texas.

Troy Brosnan Proves Can’t Wrong in BC

This video needs very little explanation, but here ya go!

“Troy Brosnan walked away from the last round of the UCI World Cup Downhill as the new Overall leader going into the recent month long break. He has spent that last month having nothing but fun on his bike. Exploring new terrain, challenging himself to new environments and conditions, pushing harder than ever…all in the sprit of fun. As Troy enters the next round of the World Cup this weekend in Mont Saint Anne, he will do so for the first time with all eyes on him – as the leader, not a follower. A leader who has been out having nothing but fun doing what he loves on two wheels. But fun can’t make you faster.”

So sick.

SOLD OUT: The Radavist Sigil 26oz Purist Bottles
Radavist_Bottles-3

I’m a pretty simple guy when it comes to products. I like black jerseys, black t-shirts, black decals and yes, black bottles. You can’t sell black on black though, so for the Radavist’s first bottles, I went with the Specialized’s Purist in a 26oz (it’s summer, drink up!), Watergate top, trans grey with black printing. Printed with “The Radavist” “Rubber Side Up” on the top and the Jackal with the Rune Sigil on the bottom.

These will look good on any bike and even better a bit scuffed up.

Swoop up a set (2 bottles) below for $25 shipped in the US, $35 shipped worldwide. SORRY SOLD OUT Each set will come with stickers.

A Look at Industry and Ti Cycle’s Solid Bike Design Project Concept
industry-ti-cycles-solid-bike-product-concept-8

With the Oregon Manifest’s Bike Design Project going on this week, Industry and Ti Cycle‘s entry is probably the most high-tech in terms of construction technique. All other bikes were brazed by traditional frame building techniques, yet had a design language that spoke of a far more modern assemblage process.

While I was really stoked on the Teague x Sizemore bike, the Ti Cycle’s construction process is truly innovative, boasting a connected, 3-d printed titanium manufacturing method. The parts for the frame that are titanium are printed and then welded together, a process that piqued my interest when I first saw it… Especially with all the integration built right into the frame and cockpit.

The team at Industry sent over their studio shots, as well as other information, but I really just want to focus on the bike itself, because to me, it is the most unique frame in the competition.

There’s still time to vote on your favorite design at the Bike Design Project and see more photos of the process and the bike below.

… of how much #LASucksForCycling. Head over to Team Dream for a few more 35mm jammers.

I miss that town all the time. Actually, I just miss the West Coast, period. Luckily, this weekend, Lauren and I are leaving for a proper vacation. We’ve got a week to drive from Portland to Los Angeles (which isn’t nearly enough time) and I’ll be shooting vacation photos the whole way.

Hopefully, if you have never been down HWY 1, the next week will make you want to do so.

How’s everyone’s summer going?

The Road to Mont Blanc

It’s hard to beat the Swiss Alps!

“After crossing the French Alps non-stop last summer, Mavic ambassador Mike Cotty prepares to take on his longest and toughest journey to date, a 1000km traverse of the Dolomites, Eastern Alps and Swiss Alps featuring 21 mountains and 23,000 metres of elevation. Watch how Mike and his team get ready as they embark on an adventure of new and unknown limits. The Road to Mont Blanc – coming August 2014.”

People ask me all the time about what I bring on big bad rides and I thought I had my selection dialed, until I saw this in the Bike Mag Following Cards Day 4 editorial the other day:

“One set of L-bend allen keys; hand pump; 4 tubes; lighter; Euros; US dollars; 5 canadian dollars; housing end caps; cable ends; matchmaker; derailleur cable; chain; EpiPen; first-aid kit; spare bolts; cleats; Time pedals; knife; rope; gloves; zip ties; T-25 torx; chain breaker; chain pliers; electrical tape; chain lube; brake pads; XX1 rear derailleur; multi-tool.”

All that, in a Acre Hauser pack – not to mention one of those ultralight Orion jackets!
