We believe the outdoors should be respected. Please, pack it in and pack it out. Leave it better, even. Remember, we’re all ambassadors for cycling, so be polite on the road and the trails and observe the leave no trace principles.
What does the Radavist mean?
Rad + Atavist = RADAVIST
Why does a porpoise surf a wave, or a sea otter slide down a rock? Atavism is a primal trait in humans and animals that drives us to do what we do – what ought to come naturally – it’s the inherent nature of living things to play. Atavism is why we ride the way we ride; From mashing the city on a track bike, riding singletrack on a ‘cross bike and shredding trails on a mountain bike. Take the time to get rad and tell the tale.

Women’s Bike Mechanic Scholarship
SRAM, Liv, QBP, United Bicycle Institute (UBI), Pedro’s and Park Tool have joined together to offer ten scholarships for women bike mechanics to attend UBI. This scholarship is dedicated to getting more women on bikes and supporting the development of female mechanics. This opportunity is open to aspiring or experienced bike mechanics and women that would like to increase their technical knowledge to further their career in the bike industry.
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!
The fifth installment of the Easton Cycling Dream Bike Charity Sweepstakes looks amazing and all proceeds go to the Red Cross. Check out more at the East Cycling Facebook…
A new year, a new dream bike. Easton’s Dream Bike giveaway continues with this beautiful Caletti race machine.
“Easton Cycling has announced the fourth installment of The Dream Bike Charity Sweepstakes, a titanium Caletti race bike. The Dream Bike Charity Sweepstakes is a promotion giving away hand- built road bikes from Calfee Design, Rock Lobster Cycles, Black Cat, Caletti Cycles and Hunter.
All proceeds from each sweepstakes are donated to five charities selected by the frame builders. Each bike is outfitted with Shimano Dura Ace and Easton EC90 components including the new EC90 Aero 55 wheelset. To participate in the sweepstakes visit Easton Cycling’s Facebook.”
Man, talk about a tough contest to judge. There were over three hundred photos tagged with #HideYourBikeinPlainSight and while most of them were pretty straight forward, these two struck me as the most successful.
Kyle Abernathy’s photo was one of the only ones that took me a minute to process what was going on. Usually, I could see what people were doing in the thumbnails. They either completely covered their whole bike in foliage, or shot so wide that the bike kinda disappeared. While there were no rules, I felt that approach was too easy. This however was so simple that it worked and the whole bike frame was obscured. Natural camouflage.
Team Dream Team’s photo took an approach that a lot of people attempted: find a wall that’s the same color as your frame but adding the banana to the shot gave it depth, scale and a clever twist. Honestly, I like Team Dream Team’s photo the best out of the bunch (heh) but I really want to give the bar tape to a random person instead. Sorry Sean! Don’t worry, Sean will get something extra special in the mail…
Kyle, shoot me your address and thanks for playing everyone!
