The New Poler CX Team Kits are Awesome!

Guys and gals, these new Poler CX kits are fire – I don’t have the fire emoji on my keyboard or I’d use it. Over the years, Poler has made some great cycling kits. They did camo kits before it was a thing, then came their experimental years and now, it seems the brand has come full-circle on one of their best kits yet. You can order one now at Castelli, or just enjoy the video below! (more…)

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.

Bruce Gordon Retirement Sale

If you’ve ever wanted a Bruce Gordon frame or complete bike, now’s your chance!

“Starting August 19, Bruce Gordon Cycles will be selling off 47 years of cycling history. All bikes, components, racks, frames, wheels, fixtures, and tools will be heavily discounted. The only stuff not being sold at this time is Bruce’s personal collection of bicycles.

New Rock n’ Road tires and new stainless toeclips will be sold at the regular price, but everything else must go. This is a great opportunity to stock up on vintage cycling equipment and help one of the living legends of framebuilding retire. All sales will be by APPOINTMENT ONLY, in person at Bruce Gordon Cycles, on a first-come, first-served basis. Make your appointment today by calling the shop: (707) 762-5601 or Bruce’s cellphone: (707) 762-4107.”

A City Bike Hill Race

Pardon me, a GoBike Hill Race. The crew from Ornot documented the Hawk Hill GoBike race that happened last week. That’s one way to utilize public bicycle transportation!

Canyon’s Inflight ‘Cross Bike

As far as modern carbon fiber ‘cross bikes go, there are some that don’t do it for me and then some that pique my interest. While Canyon’s aesthetics might not be for everyone, the Inflight looks great, in my opinion anyway. With builds ranging from $4,000 to $2,000 for a frameset, these bikes are competitively priced and as previously stated, look damn good. See more at Canyon. Not sure when these will hit the US, but I’d be willing to bet they will!
