Dream ér Stage Race Leaders Jersey

We all know Team Dream makes some great gear but this season’s drop has really raised the bar for the brand. With new jerseys, bibs, shirts, socks and accessories, there’s something for everyone, at any pricepoint. My personal favorites are the Thin Stripe and Dots Jerseys as well as the Thin Stripe Socks and the Chubby Bobcat Pocket T.

See more at Team Dream and check out the full collection below, including some of Jesse Carmody‘s rad photos!

River City Bicycles Turns 20!
RIVERCITY-1

The local bike shop has undergone a bit of stress over the past decade. Online sales from steep discount sites have crippled many shops, forcing them to close, so anytime a LBS stays open for 20 years, it’s worth noting. While River City Bicycles is far from my own local shop, they’ve always treated me like one of their own when I’m in Portland.

Congrats to the team and the community for two decades in the industry. If you’ve never been to RCB and you find yourself in Portland, it’s well worth the visit!

Oh and great freaking cap guys!

The Radavist Presents: Monster Track 2015

Monster Track is arguably the most intense and highly regarded annual street race in the world. Throughout its history, racers have been inspired to travel from all over the globe to compete for the title. In it’s 16 year history, no out of town racer has come out with a first place finish.

It can be difficult for someone to appreciate Monster Track and understand what makes it such a special race for its participants without actually being there. This year, Monster Track is told through the experience of its past champions, native citizens of a city that allows for a race of this caliber, and its visitors.

The Radavist’s #SxSW ‘Cross Ride in Austin Tomorrow
Andre_Wraith_Paycheck-31-1335x889@2x

This morning we had a solid group of riders show up for an easy spin to start the day off. Tomorrow, let’s do the same but on dirt.

Let’s meet up at Flat Track Coffee on Cesar Chavez at 9am (please be on time – we’ll leave at 9:15) for a super chill trail ride. The forecast is calling for rain, but these trails drain quick, so show up regardless. Bring a few tubes, because it’s thorny. Don’t feel pressured to kit up, shorts and a t-shirt will be fine.

Bring some cash for coffee and we’ll finish up at a bar for some food and a beer or two.

The Radavist’s #SxSW Road Ride in Austin Tomorrow
Screen Shot 2015-03-18 at 1.49.16 PM

Pardon the short notice. I didn’t want to make this a huge event, but I know some of you are in Austin for SxSW and you might have brought your road or cross bikes.

Let’s meet up at Flat Track Coffee at 9am for a casual, slow ride into some of Austin’s scenic hills just west of downtown. Anticipate around 15 miles and 2,000′ of climbing, so plan accordingly. This is a no-drop, no jock ride. Let’s spin those legs and sweat out that booze.

Also, If anyone wants to do a MTB or a cross ride, mention it in the comments and we’ll make it happen.

Firefly Bicycles: Serpentine Seat Tube
Firefly_Serpentine_02

Firefly has a saying: “every bike is a show bike” and with projects like this, it’s easy to see why. Now, I’m not sure what this symbol is referencing, although it appears to be ouroboros-inspired but seeing something personal like this, executed on a beautiful titanium frame is enough to make anyone want to flip through more shots of this bike. Luckily you can do so at the Firefly Flickr.

I’m in the process of finally working on a post that discusses how I carry camera gear on my person or bicycle during rides. As I’m planning how to document this, I go to my Flickr and see the above photo pop up. See more detailed shots at Oli’s Flickr and no, I’ve never tried something similar. Have you?

Kona Bikes: Dew Files Finland

I can’t imagine what it’s like to ride a bike in Finland, much less in the middle of winter. Luckily, this new video from Kona gives a little insight into what it’s like to cycle in arguably one of the most cycling friendly places on the globe. With over 1,200km of bike paths, the cyclists of Finland utilize their bikes as a means of transportation, regardless of the weather…

Cadence and Central Part Two

Here’s part two from the Central and Cadence trip:

“In February of 2015 Pro skaters Chico Brenes, Rob Gonzales, and Steve Nesser were accompanied by Cadence Founder Dustin Klein and Brand ambassador Fergus Tanaka. Creating a unique group with different and a parallel background.

Tour De Nica was a chance for all to celebrate the culture and atmosphere of Nicaragua where Chico was born and Central is based out of. Days where spent Riding bikes between city and skating the abundance of parks Nica has to offer.”
