OCEAN by Rothera Caps

OCEAN’s graphic design could stand on its own, but it definitely helps to make a cap with a company that makes a damn fine cap. For the newest OCEAN design, Eric teamed up with Rothera Cycling in Austin, Texas. These caps fit and look great. See more at OCEAN.

Wanna see more from OCEAN? Check out our gallery on Eric’s Cervelo from 2016.

Salsa’s Land Run 100 Video

We ride a lot of dirt roads in California and usually end up staring down some beastly climbs on even the chillest of rides. I can climb all day, but nothing drives me nuts like mud and cold. Combining those two ride elements can have disastrous results. Watching this video on Land Run 100 has me re-thinking my tire choice for this year’s event…

A Cable-Actuated IRD “Dropper” Post?


Photo by Erik Hillard

Wednesday on the Radavist, we’ve got a big, fat (tire) gallery from the Keyesville Classic, the longest-running MTB race in the USA. Included in Erik’s photos is this 1989 IRD cable-actuated “dropper.” Sure, this might not be news to anyone who dives deep in the vintage MTB realm, but it’s the first I’ve seen this specific model. Photos like this can get lost in a big gallery, so I wanted to give it some light on its own… I can’t wait to see something like this leave a custom frame builder’s shop.

Chumba’s Made in Texas Rastro Long Travel 27.5+ Hardtail

With a geometry tuned for a 140mm or 150mm fork and build kits ranging from $2995 to $3595 for a complete, the Chumba Rastro long travel 27.5+ hardtail looks to be a strong competitor for those looking at buying a new hardtail. Chumba makes all their frames outside of Austin, Texas and works with Fox and Shimano components. These complete prices reflect various modes: Trail, Enduro, and All-Trail but you can request a build spec of your own and even buy just the frame. Bottom line is; the build options are endless on a more than capable frame.

Check out more specs at Chumba and I hope to get to review one of these bikes!

The Harabas Single Speed

This video came in from the Philipines, where a shop there released a limited run of the Harabas single speed frame, designed to be ridden with slicks or knobbies, free or fixed. I really dig the reverse mig welding sequence. That’s a first for sure. Check out some photos of these frames on Instagram.

Lindarets: Thru Axle Wheel Mount for Your Rig

I know some of you have vans, or 4x4s or pickup trucks that you camp and recreate from. While plenty of people rely on external vehicle racks, some swear by internal storage systems, which usually require the front wheel to be removed. Well, what happens to those wheels usually is they slide around and end up with dinged disc brakes. Lindarets looks to solve this with their Thru Axle Wheel Mount. Yep. Simplicity as a result of a specific need. Check out more at Lindarets.
