Paul Goes Purple
PaulPurple

Remember way back when we made a small batch of purple Paul touring cantis and moon units? Well, the purple is back and this time its found itself across almost the entire Paul catalog. This special color is in stock now, but it won’t last long. Head to Paul for pricing and availability.

SOLD OUT: The Radavist Slipmats v2
RadavistSlipMats-1

They’re back! This time, in a simpler design. These are printed on thick black felt with the Radavist rune text in tan. I’ve upped the run to 200 this round, so everyone should have a chance to pick one up.

There aren’t discounts for multiple slipmats, because the shipping goes up with each additional one. If you order 2, they’ll both come in the same package. They’re $12 shipped in the USA ONLY. Because of the size of the mailer these come in, shipping internationally is almost $20. Sorry!

If you’re in Los Angeles, Mark at Vacation Vinyl has a few in stock as well. Scoop one, or a pair up below. Sorry SOLD OUT.

The 44 Bikes Marauder is Still Shredding

In between reviewing mountain bikes, I still get to ride some of my own from time to time. After reviewing the 44 Bikes Marauder, I decided to buy the frame from Kris and built it up with MTB parts I had laying around, which resulted in a really rad build. Every time I throw my leg over this bike, I’m always smiling ear to ear, even if I look serious in this shot. Thanks to Kris for making such shred-worthy bikes!

This spot is my favorite dive in LA!

More Geoff McFetridge!

First things first: how did you start riding road bikes?

It was a slow-burn thing for me. I moved to LA, and I couldn’t help but notice the occasional rider travelling through the city, exploring and traversing. I got a road bike and just rode alone all the time, and I dug in to the aesthetics and feelings of riding a bike. The interesting thing is that this was around the time of Armstrong, so cycling was booming, but just not in the way that I was interested in. I mean, I loved to watch the Tour and so on, but it wasn’t why I rode a bike.

Check out more from this great interview at Rapha!
