Mission Workshop: Albion Water-Resistant Insulated Shirt Jacket
Green_MissionWorkshop_Albion

I love products like this. Ones with multi-functionality built into a tight, clean package. The Mission Workshop Albion shirt is part down jacket and part rain jacket. While it doesn’t pack down into a pocket, or completely protect you from rain, it appears to do a good job at keeping you warm and dry in cold, inclement weather. Check out more information at Mission Workshop.

SOLD OUT! The Radavist Olive Drab and Desert Tan Bottles
ODandDesertTan-1

I cannot OD from OD. I cannot OD from OD. Olive drab is a timeless color and one that, as you can tell, is not going anywhere. It, paired with desert tan, are personally my two favorite tones. We kept it simple this round, with two bottles in two colors, with one design. In stock now in high numbers and shipping worldwide. Scoop up a pair of Radavist Olive Drab or a pair of Radavist Desert Tan bottles below for $20 a pair + shipping. These will ship on Monday. Sorry SOLD OUT!

Everyone has been asking about this bag. Swift Industries’ new Sugarloaf basket bag has landed. Designed specifically for a Wald 137 bicycle basket, it makes on and off-the bike portage a cinch, especially when paired with the shoulder strap. The Sugarloaf basket bag comes in three color options: 1000d Cordura in black or steel for $150, Camo XPac with Cordura laminate for $165 or a limited run of waxed canvas for $165. You can see more specs below and check Swift Industries for ordering! (more…)

This isn’t meant to be taken super seriously, I just wanted to say riding bikes with friends and watching the sun set over the city is exactly what I needed. Hopefully you had a similar experience.

It was a tough morning and a heart-wrenching evening, so apologies for the late start. Truthfully, I’ve wanted to address this, but prefer to keep this website politically-neutral. So, all I’ll say is remember to grow community, be positive and lead by example. Love each other, and your planet. The road gets bumpy sometimes.

Royal H Cycles: The Road to Technology and the Prova Ti / C Road
30212755983_cb4eb9c877_o


Photos by Eric Baumann

It’s always fascinating to hear people’s perception of framebuilders and its alignment is usually something like: bearded dude, welding steel together in a garage. While that might be somewhat true, for brands like Royal H Cycles, embracing technology is one of the challenges of maintaining a successful company. Consumers like titanium and carbon, two materials that are easily joined together… With the right experience. Seven, Firefly and other Boston-area builders have mastered this art, making it possible for others to ride the road to technology.

Head over to Royal H Cycles’ blog to read about the Prova, a ti and carbon road bike.

Advocate Cycles: Hayduke IMBA Special Edition frame
Hayduke

The more companies we have backing IMBA and other organizations that work for trail stewardship, the better! Here’s the latest from Advocate Cycles:

“Advocate Cycles is the first bike brand to pledge 100% of after-tax profits to be donated to cycling advocacy efforts. To coincide with IMBA’s World Summit this week in Bentonville, AR, they have created a limited run of 30 frames from their Hayduke model, with custom art designed by Adam Turman that reflects a singletrack trail, and all the parts of the earth around it. These 30 frames will be sold through Advocate Cycle’s dealer and direct sales channels for $800. Each purchase will include a free 1-year membership to IMBA, with the entire purchase price going to IMBA’s Dig In Campaign.”

100 Copies: Tree of Joy Artist Proof
Tree_of_Joy_LR_Artist's_Proof

We can’t get these posters up on the site before they sell out. At least that was the case with the original prints of this design by 100 Copies. The Tree of Joy sold out so fast that they felt compelled to sell some artist proofs of the design. Head to 100 Copies now to see more details.
