Team Dream for Endo CNCPT Tie Dye Jersey
MODEL_CNCPT_TEAM_DREAM_FRONT_1024x1024

Team Dream loves tie-dye fabrics, but the thing about jerseys is you can’t tie-dye those nice Italian fabrics. So Sean and Bobby from ENDO worked on a print, especially for the ENDO CNCPT team. These jerseys are available for pre-order now, just in time for summer. Head to ENDO for more!

Introducing the Salsa Cycles Redpoint
Redpoint-Radavist

Words by Morgan Taylor, photo by Scott Haraldson.

Last summer we hosted the guys from Salsa Cycles for a few days as they came through our neck of the woods in the BC mountains collecting images and stories for the launch of their new 27.5″ wheeled, 150mm trail bike, Redpoint. Over the past week, Salsa has slow-released a storysite – Have Dirt, Will Travel – a series of essays on mountain bike road trips with photos from that trip. I’ve got a gallery coming from that visit next week, but for now, check out the storysite and all the details on Redpoint here.

Adventure Dispatch: Ty Hathaway

In the first of Specialized’s Adventure Dispatch mini-documentary series, our friend Ty Hathaway hits on a theme that we bring up often here at the Radavist: using bikes to seek out the places very few people know about, let alone see – even in a place as densely populated as Los Angeles.

SOLD OUT! The Radavist and Fairends Cotton Camp Hat
Radavist_Cap-5

It’s been over a year since our last run of these hats! I’ve known Ben from Fairends since the Freeman Transport days (R.I.P.) and I’ve always loved his made in the USA products. Camp hats are great. Also called twill caps, they’re a staple for any wardrobe. These camp hats are the blackest ever black cotton, with a Jackal embroidered on the front, with grey inlay and the Radavist script text on the back. The construction is super solid and the embroidery is impeccable. When the sun’s rays bake this fabric it looks awesome (see below.)

-100% Cotton Twill
– Unstructured cotton body
– One size fits all, adjustable with nylon webbing strap and plastic closure
– Made in the USA

$48 + Shipping ($5 domestic, $12 international). These will ship on Thursday and Friday of this week. SOLD OUT!

Los Angeles Bicycle Festival

May 8th will bring about the Los Angeles Bicycle Festival, which just launched a Kickstarter page. Here’s a bit of information:

“We believe that Los Angeles is a beautiful, diverse city that has the ability to solve big problems while being a healthy and fun place for all. Yet riding a bike in Los Angeles is still seen as a crazy thing.

People in Southern California love theme parks, so we’ve set out to create a one-day ‘Bicycle Disneyland’ where families can wander through the different ‘Lands’ to explore bikes, resources, ride groups and nonprofits. Like speed dating! Get to know the kind of bikes that excite you and immediately connect to all the knowledge and community needed to get started or get more active no matter where in SoCal you live. Sure, it’s probably the bike enthusiast that will get the tickets, but with awesome food, music and entertainment – everyone will enjoy a great day.

For one day you’ll see all kinds of bicycle lovers – old, young, road, track or dirt, experienced and inexperienced alongside families celebrating Mother’s Day in front of LA City Hall. “

Log Lady Jammin’
Chilao_All-City_Santa-Cruz-26

All good things must come to an end and today, Kyle and I took to our favorite trail for one last Log Lady jam session. The overcast skies spared our brows from sweat and the recent rain left the corners tacky, perfect for ripping down and over our favorite obstacles. There’s more to come, once Kyle gets his thoughts down and I finish my photos. I just thought this shot would get you all stoked to ride.

Mosaic Goes Full March Madness
jrmynthn-marchmosaicness-15

To be honest, I’m not enough of a “ball sport” fan to really know what March Madness is, yet I appreciate the execution here. Then again, it is Mosaic, a framebuilder known for their precision. Here’s what’s going on with these two bikes!

“The timing of the NAHBS show happened to coincide with the start of the NCAA March Madness tournament. Paul Keodprom from Blacksmith Cycle in Toronto and his bud Eryn Stott made the drive down to Charlotte to hang with the crew from Mosaic Bespoke Bicycles, which organically turned into the production of these collegiate themed Mosaic RS­2 framesets. The two schools might not have met each other in this year’s tournament, but it’s a Syracuse vs. Michigan showdown whenever these two bikes hit the road.”

Check out more photos and details below! (more…)
