I posted this on Instagram last night, as a challenge to my SoCal readers who happen to enjoy a lot of climbing. If you find this Jackal, you can win. Just do the following:
-Shoot a photo of it on Instagram, tag it #TheRadavist
-Then, email me the road name and an overall photo of the top of the climb.
-The first person who emails me, wins.
I’ll send you a care package filled with some goodies. You want a hint? I put this sticker up while riding in the Malibu area…
Shibby Dude claimed this one! Good hustle man! Email me and I’ll get you a fat care package.
Last week at Sea Otter, Juliana announced their new Roubion shred sled and now they want to give one away:
“The new Juliana Roubion is designed to handle anything an all mountain adventure may throw at you. Designed by the carbon fiber experts at Santa Cruz, the Roubion also sports 150mm travel, with all the pedaling benefits of the Virtual Pivot Point (VPP™) system. You could say it’s got all the brawn of the Bronson, in the spirit of Juliana. It’s certainly proven itself already as Anka Martin’s Trans-Provence winning race bike.
Offered in three sizes, the Roubion will make it’s way to the public in June, but is exclusively available now to the “Show Us Your Roubion” Contest Winner.”
See more details at Juliana and another flier below!

I really, really, really love the work of Rick Hunter. In fact, if I didn’t have a plump stable already, I would get him to build me something. What? I don’t know but after seeing this Easton Cycling Dream Bike, something tells me it’d look fast!
