Delivery Trailer

If you’ve spent any time in NYC on a bike, Bill’s face is one you’ll recognize. Delivery is a short video that follows Bill around Brooklyn as he delivers hot pizza by bike. I would kill for a NYC pie right about now… THE BEST!

Manual for Speed Explodes on the Tour de France With Incredible Awesomeness
garmin-sharp_x_manual_for_speed_france_jersey

There are insuations that I make millions of dollars a year from the cycling industry for posting high-end, limited edition, wank-resistant kits, jackets, hubs, spokes and bar tape. It’s true and Manual for Speed pays me so much money that I’m the literal Scrooge McDuck of the industry, diving into pools of Chris King headsets and PAUL Touring Cantis.

Or… I just like what companies are doing and decide to post their products, regardless of how outrageous they are. I kinda wanna wear one of these jerseys to BRUNCH BRO (sorry Emi).

Scoop up one of these completely ridiculous but somehow necessary 2014 Tour de France Manual for Speed extravaganza jerseys at Garmin Slipstream for a end of July delivery.

The photos within this essay are by no means recent, but they offer a very intimate look into Portland’s framebuilding culture. I love the old portraits of Ira Ryan and Jordan Hufnagel.

This is the sixth layout of the Radavist 2014 Calendar, entitled “Light, Mate!”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.

I know summer is exploding in the Northern Hemisphere right now, but Down Unda’, in ‘Straya, it’s the middle of winter. We just finished a big ride and I thought I’d celebrate July’s calendar with some proper #lightbro!

manualforspeed_supportourdudes-4

Everyone has a clever 4th of July post up right now, but I couldn’t find a better image to represent the exuberance of America’s independence AND the Tour (what is up with this?!)… Manual for Speed does it again. Pick one of these up at Manual for Speed and eat a damn hot dog for me, America.

… and drink some bourbon. And blow stuff up. And get sunburnt. And listen to records. And ride a made in the USA bike!

Giro Launches the New Empire SLX for Fall 2014
Giro_S_EmpireSLX_LaceLoop-Crop

I’m telling you, the more I ride buckles and straps, the more I wish they were laces. Giro has now expanded their Empire platform to include the SLX model.

Read the press-release and see more photos below. Loving that color!


Giro Sport Design has announced the Empire SLX, a new shoe that redefines road footwear performance. Weighing an astonishing 175 grams, it features the unrivaled comfort and adjustability of a lace closure, plus an Easton® EC90TM SLXII carbon outsole that delivers all the stiffness and efficiency demanded by world-class professionals. Already ridden to victory in the Amgen Tour of California, the Empire SLX will be available this fall for $350/ €300.

“The Empire SLX is a triumph of Giro’s parallel pursuit of technology and design,” said Giro Senior Brand Manager Eric Richter. “Thanks to its timeless style and world-class performance, the original Empire has been a runaway success. The Empire SLX takes cycling footwear to a new level of comfort and minimalism.”

Like the original Empire, the Empire SLX was designed with close input from world-class professionals, particularly BMC Racing Team’s Taylor Phinney, current USA National Time Trial Champion and winner of Stage 5 of the 2014 Amgen Tour of California.

The Empire SLX mates a one-piece upper crafted of premium Teijin Evofiber SL breathable microfiber to a Easton® EC90TM SLXII high-modulus carbon sole, utilizing titanium hardware in the replaceable heel pads to further minimize weight.

Key features of the Giro Empire SLX include:

• Benchmark Low Weight: At a mere 175g for size 42.5, the Empire SLX is one of the lightest production
cycling shoes ever made, and is even considerably lighter than many custom cycling shoes
• Superior Laced Closure: Giro employs KDL Techno Laces to deliver unrivaled fit and feel. Originally
developed for world cup-level soccer boots, KDL Techno laces hold knots securely, resist stretching, and are supremely lightweight. Laces are also extremely difficult to destroy in a crash, but, unlike ratchet or buckle systems, are simple to replace if need be.
• Easton® EC90TM SLXII Outsole: Working closely with Easton®, Giro developed an optimal stiffness profile while minimizing weight and maintaining an ultra-low 6.5mm stack height, improving performance and efficiency without compromising comfort.
• Exceptional Breathability: A new Teijin EvofiberTM SL one-piece upper allows heat and moisture to escape from inside without relying on mesh cut-outs which can compromise fit and add weight.
• Adjustable SuperNatural Fit Kit: The SuperNatural Fit system combines a thin, cycling-specific footbed with an adjustable arch support system that allows riders to custom-tune their fit right out of the box, without any tools or hassles, and features a thin, anti-microbial X-Static top layer.

The Giro Empire SLX will be available worldwide Fall 2014 for $350/ €350 in anodized orange and white/ black. More information may be found at www.giro.com/empireslx. A complete digital press kit may be found at TK

_MG_8958

There’s “lightweight” and then there’s LIGHTWEIGHT. I’ve held this jacket in my mortal hands and it is amazing…

“We got our hands on some special cuts of Polartec’s NeoShell® fabric in colors not typically found in the Mission Workshop line and made some limited editions of our classic Orion jacket. The Orion provides complete waterproof protection in a lightweight and packable format, and is made with 96 g/m2 Polartec® NeoShell® fabric. The relaxed cycling fit combined with durable stretch fabrics enables maximum movement. Available for the first time in colors that will be noticed by everyone around you.”

Swoop up at Mission Workshop. Seriously, this is a worthy investment…

Did I Mention Team Dream Has New Stock?

So… I scheduled that Rizzle video for today, thinking it was for yesterday (I’m still in OZ, where we’re about 17 hours ahead of you in the States) and I forgot to mention all the other Team Dream products in stock… Personally, I like the FFF kits, but there’s also CMYK socks, new SWRVE collaboration shorts – these rule – and other products.

See some more photos below and the full scoop at Team Dream!

Return to the Bush
Dans40thBushBash_Day_01-114

For the next 48 hours, I’ll be riding in the outer reaches of civilization deep in the Yarra Ranges with a handful of mates. As per the norm when it comes to these rides, there will be ample documentation upon my return.

This trip will be atypical from previous treks, since it’s winter and the weather can change in the blink of an eye…

See you soon!
