A group of individuals who share a love of cycling and the outdoors. We will always stop for a photo, or to hit a rope swing… Rubber side up!
Where did Prolly is Not Probably go?
It is still here, and then some. PiNP was one person’s opinion and voice. Now we are a collective – a community of diverse opinions and rich stories.
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. Atavism is why we ride the way we ride; From mashing the city on a track bike to shredding the trails on full suspension. Take the time to get rad.
Crihs and Luke from Empire wanted to do a contest with COG Magazine and myself to start the year off right. Rather than taking the easy route, as per the norm these days, the guys got creative and set up a pretty rad contest. The rules are above, so read them carefully and please, take your time with this one. It’s gonna be rad!

The shops and crews Levi’s Trucker jackets aren’t all gone. In fact, I heard that a few more are making their way over to my house soon. Affinity is throwing a contest to win one of theirs, which I think came out pretty rad. Head over to their blog for details.
EighthInch is having a photo contest on their Facebook page:
“Grab your camera, it’s time for an EighthInch photo contest. Submit a picture of your EighthInch bike to [email protected]. All of the photos will be posted in an album on our Facebook page. The person who’s photo gets the most “likes” by 12/21 will win an EighthInch wheelset of their choice. Be sure to tell all your friends to vote!
The photo can be of just your bike or you on your bike. As long as your bike is in the picture somewhere we will post it in the album. The bike must have at least an EighthInch frame.”
The second issue of 48×15 is out and inside its pages is a contest to win a pair of H+Son TB14s. Here’s how to enter:
“We spent the last month trying to find the best way to tell you guys that we think you’re really great for reading our magazine. We didn’t want to come on too strong with ‘we love you’, and we didn’t want it to get weird by suggesting that you meet our parents. I think we settles at a happy place in the middle – giving away super awesome H+SON rims! There are only a few quick steps to get yourself entered to win:
1. Read Volume 002 of 48×15 Magazine (look at that, you’re already done step 1!)
2. Take a picture of yourself while you’re getting your read on. It can be the physical magazine, on our website, at issuu.com/48×15, on your computer, on your phone, your grandma reading it to you while you fall asleep . . doesn’t matter!
Wonka and Chrome just announced the winner of the Hey, Check Me Out! contest and to no one’s surprise, it was Phillip Williams. Dude’s on his hustle and it’s paying off. Much respect to all parties involved in this!
I don’t know what you’re up to this weekend but I just joined this challenge from Rapha on Strava.
This Thanksgiving holiday, don’t sit around and pile on the calories, ride them away with Rapha and Strava’s Turkey Takeoff.
Thanksgiving usually means eating and drinking as much as you possibly can. But Rapha and Strava are challenging you to ride as much as you can over the holiday to take off that turkey and burn 9000 calories* between Wednesday the 23rd and Sunday 27th November. Riders who complete the challenge will receive a Rapha Turkey Takeoff badge.
