Silca Tattico Bluetooth Mini-Pump

Silca rolled out their most innovative product yet today, the Tattico Bluetooth Mini-Pump. The pump relies on a bluetooth app called iGauge to read your bike’s air pressure. This allows the Tattico to be a true mini-pump and offers accurate air pressure readings. It’s a very innovative product and one that I’d like to see in person for sure. Check out more at Silca.

Search Brigade 2017 ‘Made in America’ Cross-Country in 38 Days

I love Search and State’s Search Brigade trips and this year’s event looked like a blast!

“The Search Brigade is a cross-country cycling odyssey open to anyone with the courage to follow Search and State on the back roads of the United States. On June 1st, 2017 we left New York City on a mission to discover what ‘Made in America’ truly means. 38 days and 3,594 miles later we arrived in Santa Monica with an answer.”

See more from this trip at Search and State!

Juggernaut Cargo Bikes

As far as I’m concerned, the more people making cargo bikes, the better. Cities are filled to the brim with automobiles and congestion is the unfortunate by-product. Getting around a city, in fact, any city, by bike is easier and healthier. Juggernaut Cargo Bikes know that, which is why they chose to launch their new brand on Kickstarter. While buy-in is steep, cargo bikes made in the USA are not cheap, although they pale in comparison to a new car… See more on Kickstarter.

The Crust Bikes Nor’Easter Looks Damn Fine!


Photo from @JDGESUS

I gotta say, the latest frames Crust Bikes have been putting out have been damn fine bicycles. The Romanceur, Dreamer and now the Nor’Easter, pictured above are all exceptional. Yet, there’s something about this build in particular that has me drooling. It’s like a Rivendell that has disc brakes! More info to come…

Chris King’s Cielo to Cease Production

This was shocking news to me, but someone smarter than me once said “do what you’re good at” and I can see Chris King just wanting to shift all their energy on hubs, headsets and bottom brackets. Still, it makes me sad every time a framebuilding operation shuts down. Here’s the official news from Chris King:

“AS OF AUGUST 15, 2017 WE ARE NO LONGER TAKING NEW CIELO ORDERS.

We are quite proud of the product that Cielo has produced over the years and are honored by those who ride our frames. We are suspending Cielo indefinitely to focus our attention on Chris King Precision Components core product families (headsets, bottom brackets, and hubs).

We will continue to support the Cielo warranty and will fulfill any outstanding orders. For any questions, email [email protected]

Cielo will always live on here, on the Radavist, so check out some of the archives on the Related column to the left.
