Geekhouse Bikes: Titanium Mudville Complete
mudville_shot1

Boston is no stranger to titanium. Back in the day, Merlin ruled that market, and later, Indy Fab. These days Firefly and Seven are cranking out beautiful ti frames and now, Geekhouse can be added to that material roster. We’ve seen Geekhouse work with titanium before, with that flashy, painted frame, but here’s a look at what the new Geekhouse Ti bikes look like raw, leaving the welds exposed. Geekhouse works exclusively with USA 3AL2.5V tubing and the Mudvilles feature thru-axles, and a Loco Machine head tube. These bikes look great and you can see for yourself below. If you’re interested in a Ti Geekhouse, wait time is around 3-4 months. (more…)

The ATOC Stage 02 Highlights

Stage two of the Amgen Tour of California fell in our literal backyard, taking place in the Angeles National Forest and finishing in Santa Clarita. The Peloton battled Highway 2, Big T and every incline of the day with prowess and panache. Unfortunately, our party didn’t make this highlight feed, but don’t worry, coverage from that is on the way tomorrow!

Rapha and Herman Miller for the Amgen Tour of California
Rapha-Herman-Miller-Hooks-and-Caps-1-smaller2-2048x1000

In many ways, what Herman Miller did for modernism in terms of furniture, Rapha has done for cycling apparel, so it would make sense that the two brands would come together for an event like the Tour of California. Check out these commemorative caps for the ATOC, featuring Rapha’s fit and Herman Miller’s patterns, available each day of the tour via Rapha’s site. Be quick though because the first day sold out fast!

All I wanna know is how do I buy that extra, extra long Hang it All?

Keep Your On the Bike Bevs Cold with the Miir 32oz Howler
LeicaM-462

Since the authors of the Radavist always have a camera on them, we’re going to try to provide more brief, succinct reviews of everyday products. This one’s been a staple in my car camping equipment for a while, though I never thought to use it on the bike. That is until I recently discovered that it fits in a Looney Bin.

The 32oz Insulated Howler by Miir keeps your beverages cold for a day (I’ve tested it) and hot for 12 hours, depending on how often you open it up. This thing is solid, made from stainless steel and consequently it’s a bit heavy but on a touring bike or townie bike, that’s kinda irrelevant, especially when having an icy cold drink at the top of a climb is of the utmost importance.

To give you an idea about it’s size, it’s 11″ tall, 3.5″ in diameter with a 2.5″ opening, complete with a flip top. You can fit it in a Loony Bin, a Widefoot Liter Cage, or any other “cargo cage.” It’s available in black or silver and in stock now at Miir.
