Leh Seats

It’s rad that Carson lives in Austin. I need to get over to his shop!

“Carson Leh has been making custom leather bicycle seats and cycling accessories for 4 years. He started in 2010 recovering torn BMX saddles and in 2013 he founded Leh Seats. He not only manufactures leather bike saddles and handle bar tape, but has recently branched out with new leather goods such as Macbook cases.

He produces small production run leather goods for contract in the USA. Filmer Brian Chace of www.chaceproductions.com visited his Austin based workshop this winter to speak with him about his work and inspiration from brogue wingtip dress shoe and boot making. This short film shows the process of one of his custom made BMX seats. Each BMX seat is guaranteed for life against tears. You can find him at www.lehseats.com or on Instagram @lehseats.”

No Sus No Fuss
FUJI_Tests-IF

No matter what MTB I’m currently reviewing, I love getting out on my IF. Sure, I’ve gotta be mindful with my lines, but it’s a no-nonsense shred sled!

I’ve been shooting a lot with the Fuji X-T1 these days, so there will be a lot of little posts like this.

A Bottle of Bourbon and A Bicycle
Fuji_Tests-1

A few of my favorite things: Colonel EH Taylor Bourbon and my Geekhouse on a sunny Friday… After seven weeks of sobriety I’ve been taking it easy with bourbon. I’ve had a few glasses over the past week, but I’ve learned to enjoy it.

I don’t know why I’m posting this, all I know is I dropped a lot of weight not drinking for a month. Like down from 200lbs to 180lbs. It’s insane…

Winter Bicycles: Sean-nós Frameset
13890701022_b40d1b075f_o


Photo by Anthony Bareno

Eric from Winter is slayyyyyyying it this year! Here’s the latest, the Sean-nós frameset, a sportif road:

“The Sean-nós is designed to run modest width tyres and mudguards under a mid reach brake. The heat treated, thin wall steel tubing is joined with clean, crisply carved continental style lugs. The quickly raked fork and open scalloped drop out treatment are reminiscent of an older style. The Sean-nos is equally at home in the mountains, rain and rougher roads The racing green metallic paint and gold box lining are provided by Keith Anderson.

54 seat tube and 55 top tube with an optional 120mm Winter French point stem.

This frame is currently available – holler at Winter and see more photos at the Winter Flickr.

Juliana Bicycles: My Roubion Contest
ROUBION INSTAGRAM PIC

Last week at Sea Otter, Juliana announced their new Roubion shred sled and now they want to give one away:

“The new Juliana Roubion is designed to handle anything an all mountain adventure may throw at you. Designed by the carbon fiber experts at Santa Cruz, the Roubion also sports 150mm travel, with all the pedaling benefits of the Virtual Pivot Point (VPP™) system. You could say it’s got all the brawn of the Bronson, in the spirit of Juliana. It’s certainly proven itself already as Anka Martin’s Trans-Provence winning race bike.

Offered in three sizes, the Roubion will make it’s way to the public in June, but is exclusively available now to the “Show Us Your Roubion” Contest Winner.”

See more details at Juliana and another flier below!

Screen Shot 2014-04-18 at 8.39.43 AM

Cadence’s jeans have always been a great bargain and this time, they’ve changed the cut to match the fit of raw denim. For under $100 you get North Carolina Cone Denim in black!

Scoop up a pair at Cadence.

Manual for Speed Goes GIF at Vuelta al Pais Vasco
unnamed

So… Manual for Speed realized one thing covering the Vuelta al Pais Vasco: photoz r overz. People just don’t have the patience these days, or the attention span to sit through a gallery anymore. They want motion. They want action but they don’t want videos. Because, videos are boring too.

What did MFS do? They made a GIF documentary and my favorite is the helicopter.

It’s wild, head over to MFS to check it out!

Edward Masters: The Spirit of Enduro

“When one carries out an action, that reaches a bad result, then one repeats the same action several times, expecting a better result– one is a little-insane monkey, no?” – Voltaire

Sometimes you need to change how you do things to put yourself on the top step of the podium.

Eddie Masters does just that.

Sweet As.

This Dude is Leaving Town in a Van
Hanson_35mm-5

Hanson Little has become a pretty great friend over the past few years. If you’ve followed BMX at all, then his name might be familiar, having ridden for Mutiny and T-1.

While his days of “being pro” are behind him, he now spends his free time on a road bike, BMX or MTB, shredding trails, hips, ditches and the steep hills here in Austin to get his kicks.


This morning, Hanson left for a 12-month+ road trip, where he’ll be living out of a van and meandering around the nation’s greatest state parks, shredding everything in site. I shot some more photos of him in his new home, and will be posting a Ride Along segment next week.

Before he left town, I gave him a Yashica T4 to contribute some on-the-road content to the Radavist.

All I can say is I’m stoked for this guy… If you see him on the road, give him some love!
