Jeff Curtes Shoots MAAP on the Great Ocean Road
MAAP F/W 2015 / CT

When a guy like Jeff Curtes shoots photos and writes a bit of copy, you don’t paraphrase his work. Sure, you edit it down a bit but it’s best left untouched. When he contacted me to share a recent photoshoot for Australia’s MAAP, I very much obliged to let him do just that. Read on for the full account and a selection of photos from Jeff’s recent shoot on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia… (more…)

Mission Workshop: Stahl Shorts Restocked
MW_Stahl

Gear is preferential, especially when it comes to shorts. Length matters, fit matters and when cycling is thrown into the equation, durability matters. These shorts have become my staple when it comes to camping, or bikepacking or even just jamming around on trails. They’ve taken hits, seen their share of swimming holes and they keep begging for more.

The Mission Workshop Stahl shorts have become one of my favorite “cycling apparel” products and they’re back in stock now, from a size 29 up to a 36 at Mission Workshop. I would size down one full size due to the nature of the fabric’s stretch. Four-way stretch means across the waist too!

Manual for Speed Does Tulsa Tough
manualforspeed_tulsatough_riverpark-123-1680x1344

Tulsa Tough is tough, simply put and while it’s a race, it lives in infamy as one of the partiest parties in American Crit Racing. With one hill in particular being the pinnacle of said party. Crybaby Hill is one you won’t soon forgot. If you’ve never been head over to Manual for Speed for a full update!

MAVIC® Trans-Provence 2015: Day 02

If you need a reason to be stoked on the Trans Provence, just look at this video’s title image. A mix of old vernacular and modern MTB technology creates this dichotomy of trail stokedness. Or something like that. Just check out the MAVIC® Trans Provence’s Day 02 coverage and look for our boy Ty in the mix!

Winter Bicycles: Picholine City Bike
2015-06-11 14.07.16

I don’t know what’s more impressive. Winter’s bicycles, or the names Eric comes up with for them. “Picholine” are olives originally from the south of France. The classic era French city bikes have always interested Eric from Winter Bicycles, so when a client requested a commuter, he looked to them for inspiration, while picking up a few modern details. Fenders, generator lamp, racks and other elegant elements adding to the beauty and functionality of utilitarian bicycles. (more…)

Austin Texas #GetSickDay Information
GetSickDay2

Austin, TX
Thursday, June 25th
10am rollout from Mellow Johnny’s
Roadie or Dirty ride options.

Hey Austin! We know the weather has been a bummer as of late and that means the trails have been unofficially off-limits. Well, it looks like this week will be a bit drier and hopefully Thursday we’ll have somewhat sunny skies.

The Radavist and Mellow Johnny’s have your #GetSickDay plans covered with two ride options: a Mellow’s roadie ride or the Radavist’s dirty ride.

The dirty will be arguably more, uh, interesting as we take you on a cutty, go nutty trail ride to some interesting, off-the-beaten-path routes. Expect lots of potential hiking, swimming, boozin’ and yes, shredding.

Cyclocross or mountain bikes are a necessity here.

Due to the nature of the trails, we’ll be navigating a lot of overgrown territory, so I’d err on the side of shorts and a t-shirt, rather than your favorite new kit. Unless you feel like ripping through lycra on a tree branch. It’ll be a chill pace, but we’ll be packing in some miles (around 50), so plan and dress accordingly. The bigger tire you can fit into your cross bike the better. Mountain bikes will be a bit overkill on this ride.

Bring two inner tubes, a pump and any tools you’d need. We ain’t fixing your flats for ya!

Yeti Launches the SB5c BETI and a ASRc BETI for Female Riders
Ytei_Beti

Julie Furtado, Marla Streb, Tara Llanes, Jill Kitner, and Rosara Joseph. All of these women have ridden Yeti in the past when both the brand itself and the industry was younger. As technology changed, the bikes became more advanced and fit became even more of an importance. Enter the Yeti BETI line. Two bikes, a SB5c and an ASRc, both designed with a female fit in mine. Both are derivatives of the existing models, but built with different sized wheels to accommodate smaller riders. It’s great to see options out there for women in mountain biking. Head over to Yeti to see more on the SB5c BETI and ASRc BETI.

Hunter Cycles Hip Shooters Slingshots
Three Days on the Tour Divide with the Salsa Cutthroat

Rick Hunter is onto something. I’m telling you. Slingshots are hip as hell right now. From bikepacking to shootin’ beer cans, these childhood relics were in need of a facelift. A 4130 facelift. My skillz are dialed and yours can be too with these made in Santa Cruz Slingers.

$100 is a lot to drop on something like this, but hey, they’re steel, painted in house and will awe men and women alike. Just don’t let your friends “borrow” one for too long!

In stock now at Hunter Cycles.

The 2015 Superenduro B-Road

I like the looks of this!

“Before the start no one had a clear idea of what would happen along those 110 km in the vineyards and hazelnut orchards of the Langhe territory. Many expectations and so many unknowns for the competitors, and everyone who was there.

The story telling of the first Superenduro B-Road was in the hands of the media crew, which moved fast on motorbike following the groups of competitors between asphalt and gravel sections, to document the race and spirit of this event.

Check the video report with the best shots from the race, good memories for someone and a little push for everybody else to don’t miss the second edition!”
