Search and State S1-A Jersey Bundle
SAS

The Search and State S1-A jersey is one of my favorites. If you’re into no-label simplicity, chances are it’ll be one of yours too. The S1-A jersey is a durable, technical garment made in New York City with an impeccable fit and a classic look that will last for seasons on end. Need a different jersey for (almost) every day of the week? SAS has ya covered with a four-jersey bundle at a savings. Four jerseys, for $400.

Check out the SAS S1-A Jersey Bundle.

Velo News: Not All Frames are Created Equal
S-WorksFrames.BK_

No, that $700 S-Works frame is not from the same overseas factory as the $3,500 original. Not even close. To partially prove a point and also educate internet consumers, Velo News took a look at a bootleg frame by comparing it to an actual frame in their laboratory. The results are interesting to say the least. Head over to Velo News to check it out…

YO! MFS Cribz California Edition
manualforspeed_lacribz-titlebig-1680x1344

“There is no denying that the world’s top cyclists are a breed apart, they are competitive thoroughbreds, human wunderkind graced with nearly limitless physical prowess. What they do on a bike, with their seemingly effortless speed and cagey instincts, is a sight to behold. A sight that creates hordes of ravenous fans and colorful motorcades that stretch beyond the horizon, a sight that fuels respectable economies and liberates the oppressed. These demi-gods are responsible for all of it, a great gift and a great burden, a weight that takes considerable effort to support even for those granted such remarkable powers. Even with all of their stamina and endurance, these cycling phenoms need a place where they can recover, hydrate, and watch House of Cards. Superman has his fortress, Batman his cave, and these real life superheros, they have their apartments, condos, and flats.

In this episode of YO! MFS Cribz, Manual for Speed has been granted exclusive and unprecedented access to the Los Angeles area homes of six seasoned pros to catch a glimpse of their decadent SoCal lifestyles…”

Foundry Brings Us the Chilkoot Titanium Road
FND_Chilkoot_Ultegra_01

These days, I feel like road bikes aren’t getting the love they deserve. Everything’s either “all-road” or cyclocross spefic, with disc brakes and massive tire clearances but there’s something to be said about a solid, race-inspired road bike with clearance for a 28mm tire.

That’s where Foundry’s new Chilkoot titanium road bike comes into play. Built using Foundry’s proprietary 3Al/2.5V titanium double-butted tubing the Chilkoot is both a road racing machine and a bike that will last for years on end.

Because a lot of people prefer Di2 compatibility on their bikes, Foundry added hidden ports to the frame and a clean, removable cable stop to the downtube. A 1 1/4” tapered ENVE road fork adds a bit of front-end stiffness for quick accelerations and the english threaded BB will ensure a creak-free ride.

Personally, I’m impressed with the Chilkoot. Road bikes are fun and this one in particular looks like a lot of thought went into addressing a much-needed market. $4,695.00 for the complete as shown with Ultegra 6800 or as a frame for $2495.

Shreddin’ in the Deep South

The South has some amazing trail networks, including Coldwater Mountain in Anniston, Alabama. Eric Porter and Cody Kelley spent a week there, ripping the ribbons of deep south dirt, eating grits and biscuits, all while soaking in the rich culture. Makes me want to road trip!

Rapha: the Longest Day Trailer

Here’s an interesting concept from Rapha:

“Rapha asked some of its riders to ride from sunrise to sunset across the reaches of the world, from France to the United States to Japan. One film crew flew from point to point to document the rides and learned that no matter where a long ride takes place there are common elements that unite.”

From the looks of this trailer, one of those common elements are insane landscapes. I can’t wait to see the full-length.

Ibis Announces the New and Improved Ripley 29r
Full-Ripley-Orange

One of my personal favorite 29’rs just got a facelift and a new, lower, slacker brother. The Ripley is back and better than ever. With new cable routing, a threaded BB, bigger tire clearance, stiffer eccentric cores and many other improvements, the new Ripley is sure to deliver one hell of a fun time on the trails. For those wanting an even rowdier option, the new Ripley LS gets lower and slacker (from a 69.2° to a 67.5° head tube angle in the large) to excel at downhill blasting.

Head over to Ibis to check out more information on the Ripley, and to your local dealer to check one out!
