Spencer Harding’s Perfect Bound Photo Books
66_dsc0299

We’ve featured Spencer Harding’s photos in the past here at the Radavist and while digital, or online photos are great to look out, printed books or zines make for great conversation pieces or coffee table reading. Spencer has taken some of his more memorable trips and made beautifully-printed, perfect bound photo books from them, all from $15 to $25 in limited runs. If you have a bit of wanderlust and enjoy looking at photos when you can’t be out on your bike, make sure you check these out. See all of his books at his webshop.

Compass Cycle: Rat Trap Pass in Standard Casing
Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 9.35.09 AM

Compass knows that not everyone needs an ultralight tire for day to day use and that sometimes, a “standard casing” is just well, better. Knowing this they took their Rat Trap Pass, that giant 26″ tire and made it more resilient to road debris. Head over to Compass to see pricing and more information.

Pure Norwegian Bikepacking

This one’s a long one and it calls for any number of 90’s black metal bands as the backdrop. Especially since it’s subtitled. Enjoy!

Liz Modeling the Machines for Freedom Thrive Jersey
Liz_MFF_Thrive


Photos by Jesse Carmody

The Thrive print is inspired by the flora of the springtime and is metaphorically used to express our motivation to ride. Liz is one tough woman, taking on various rides like the White Rim trail and shredding Los Angeles’ trails on her mountain bike. She recently modeled the MFF Thrive Jersey and I think these are some of the best studio shots of a kit I’ve seen in some time. Check out more at Machines for Freedom.

Come Ride with Stinner Frameworks and Ringtail at the Cub House this Saturday
tumblr_o6atrxeR4L1rk6u99o1_1280

“We’re heading to the Cub House in Pasadena, Saturday April 30th to check out the local riding and to hang out with the Ringtail and Team Dream Crew! We’ll be converging on theCub House at 8:30 AM and leaving at 9 AM to go for a 35-ish mile ride across mixed terrain along Highway 2 in the Angeles National Forest. Look for about 3,000 feet of climbing. The ride will be doable on a road bike, just bring flat repair! At noon, we’ll be meeting back up at the Cub House to drink beverages, eat food, hang out, talk bikes, and talk Stinner. Come join us for the ride and mingle, just the ride, or just the shop talk afterwards, we’d love to have you!”

I’d suggest a cross bike, but it’s been done on a road bike before. I’ll be there, so come along and join in on the fun!

9am roll out

New Belgium and Detroit Bikes

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that bikes and beer go well together. To celebrate their 25th anniversary, New Belgium teamed up with Detroit Bikes on a limited edition cruiser. Wait, is 2,500 still considered “limited?” Whatever! These bikes look great and they’re all over to non-endemic media, so head over to New Belgium to see more!

Must Thrive Socks
first_edit_flat_must_thrive

I like the looks and the sound of this project from Bonedeth (Dan Chabanov and Krista):

“For anyone who has ever felt like giving up, fought tooth and nail just to keep their head above water, and found themselves stronger because of their struggle. Designed with those suffering from chronic illness in mind, the Must Thrive socks are for the fighter in all of us. All proceeds will be donated to the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation in honor of the Ciminera Family. Please visit www.pkdcure.org for more information.”

Orders will start shipping out Mid May 2016. Head over and pre-order a pair of Must Thrive Socks! Nice one guys!
