The Specialized Sequoia Gets New Paint and Expert Build Part Upgrades this Year

The Specialized Sequoia namesake is one of heritage and for 2018, this popular model gets a few upgrades, most noticeably, new paint designs. As for the Sequoia Expert build kit, it now comes spec’d with a complete SRAM Force group, and a more capable PRO 2 allow seat post, which fits bikepacking bags more easily (safely). For pricing, availability and more information, head to your local Specialized dealer. See the full build kit and bike line below. (more…)

Kitsbow’s Front Range Merino Sweatshirt

Kitsbow makes high-quality cycling apparel in the US, yet at a price. A $150 merino sweatshirt might seem like a lot of money, but as I’ve found over the years with Kitsbow, it’ll be the best you’ll ever own and will last for years. While not every thing in their catalog is for me, I can spot their new classics a mile away. This Front Range Merino Sweatshirt will be a fall and winter trail staple!

Floyd’s of Los Angeles

Well, that’s something I never thought I’d see; Floyd Landis and Kyle from Golden Saddle riding a tandem.

Floyd’s are out promoting their new CBD oil capsules that aid in sports recovery and can be sold online, legally.

This weekend has been fun. You do not disappoint, Los Angeles! See more shots from the ride below. (more…)

Now, their newest innovation pushes the envelope even further with Zippelin, an inflatable travel bag, freshly launched, yet already wildly popular on Kickstarter. Personally, I’ve never seen anything like it.
