Jeff Curtes’ Team MAAP Speedvagen Disc ‘Cross
Speedvagen

Our buddy Jeff Curtes is an exceptional photographer and part of the Speedvagen family. Living in Sydney means ‘cross season is here and this season he’s racing for MAAP, an Australian apparel company. When Jeff told me about his new team bike, I requested some photos. It sounded like an awesome build with Di2, a race geometry and no bottle bosses. Yeah…

I can’t even begin to paraphrase Jeff’s words, so check them out below, along with more photos! (more…)

Rough dirt roads and hot springs litter this tour of Iceland the guys from RadRace took on.

Ride On, Nils!
Nils-1

You might recognize this one… When Nils got hit by a car, totaling his Chumba, he had to convert his Cycle Fab Surly LHT Cargo machine back to a 700c touring bike for every day rides. Now, it’s his ride for Aids Life Cycle.

Before heading out of town, he swung by to say hello and pick up some last minute provisions. I took his bike out for two photos (you’ll have to excuse the printer, it happened to be on the sidewalk and worked as a perfect prop for this fully-loaded bike.) My two favorite details are Nils’ self-made frame bag and how he mounted the Porcelain Rocket Mr. Fusion directly to his rack mounts, rather than the seatpost. Nicely done!

Follow Nils on his trip at @FrankWithoutBeans!

Trailside Dailies at the UCI World Cup with Trek

I love watching videos that focus more on the vibe of an event than the production. Not to say this is a low-quality video, but it’s more focused on capturing the feel of the 2016 UCI World Cup series than anything else. Nicely done!

Outer Shell Adventure Roll Top Saddle Bag
SaddlePack

Having options for how much space you have in your saddle bag is a good thing, especially when you never know what the weekend’s rides will bring. Outer Shell Adventure makes these clever roll top saddle bags, which can either be tightly tucked under your saddle with just the flat fix essentials, or expanded to carry a vest or a small jacket.

Available in an array of colors and in stock now at Outer Shell Adventure. Also be sure to check out their bikepacking bags!

Ryan Wilson’s New 44 Bikes Olive Drab 27.5+ Bikepacking Rig
OD_Green_RMDUB

When Ryan Wilson @RMDub told me that he was quitting his job to go bikepacking around South America for the unforeseeable future, I was stoked. When he mentioned wanting to do Reportage for the Radavist while he was down there, I couldn’t resist but to get on board. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been helping him put together this 44 Bikes OD green 27.5+ bikepacking rig and Kris just posted completed photos of the frameset. There’s more to come but for now, head to the 44 Bikes Flickr to see more!
