Add Color and Laser Etching to Your Cambium Saddle with CRivets

These days, you can literally color match every piece of hardware and componentry on your bike and now, even your Cambium saddle rivets. CRivets offers anodized colors and custom laser etching services to personalize your Cambium saddle. Email them your art, wait for the CRivets to ship and then install them, using their easy online installation steps. I’ve got a set and the detail in the etching is impressive. Now I’ve just gotta find a Cambium to put them on!

The Dustin Klein-Designed Cadence Colossi 2017 Team Track Frame

Dustin Klein is no stranger to frame embellishment and for this year’s track crit season, he put it to work. Cadence teamed up with Jan Kole’s framebuilding company Colossi. A former Dutch professional cyclist himself, Jan raced in Europe in the 70s and 80s before moving to China to establish Colossi with his son, Sander.

Together, Colossi and Cadence will have a presence at the US and European track crit circuit in the form of these Cadence Colossi 2017 team frames. Read the full press-release and see more photos below.

These are in a very limited run, so you can swoop one bottle for $10 + shipping below. Because these are limited, there is a one bottle per person limit. PLEASE do not double order.

Back from a Desert Reset

Each year after NAHBS, I like to take some time off the bike and explore the desert. This year, Cari and I packed up the truck and took Max out to the Mojave Preserve for an extended weekend of exploration and observation. With all the rain we’ve had, it was a veritable vegetation overload. The flora and fauna were out in full force and consequently, both of our trigger fingers were happy. A high point for both of us were seeing three adult desert tortoises and reporting them to the local rangers who are tracking this endangered species’ recovery.
