No22 Bicycles: the Aurora Disc Road
Screen Shot 2017-01-18 at 8.32.54 AM

With flat mount brakes, a carbon seat tube and titanium main tubes, the latest from No22 Bicycles is one of the slickest looking disc road bike on the market. At first glance, even I didn’t notice the disc rotors… The Aurora is made in the USA and backed with a 10-year warranty. Check out more information on the Aurora at No22.

The 2017 Mr. Pink Has a Carbon Fork
The 2017 Mr. Pink Has a Carbon Fork

Ok, yeah, technically there is an “embargo” on this release for tomorrow, but you know what? I don’t care. Jeff is crashing at my house while he’s here in LA, and I hauled all my camera gear up to an overlook to photograph this bike at sunset, so I’m posting it a few hours before the embargo. That means a few things: there’s no link for this bike on the All-City site yet, so you can’t get every single spec and detail. Edit: well, they just pushed it live…

I can tell you the size 55cm weighs 20lbs on the nose (the 52cm pictured comes in under 20lbs), completely stock and the new Whisky carbon fork was developed specifically by All-City for this bike. The new fork has the same rake and tire clearance, yet weights 1.45lbs lighter than the steel fork. These frames are still made from Columbus Zona tubing.

Currently, there will no longer be steel forks offered on the Mr. Pink. The Whisky fork is replacing them. A bit of intel however: All-City is making a limited run of pink Whisky forks for all the current owners of last year’s model to buy and as you can see, the new Mr. Pink is an homage to the classic Motorola Cycling Team. Yay, Merckx!

We love the Mr. Pink here at the Radavist. If you wish to read my review, check it out in the Related Entries in the left column. Also, Whisky will be offering this 1 1/8″ fork in their 2017 lineup. More on that later. For now, check out more photos below and see full specs at All-City. (more…)

Starting the Weekend Off Right
Friday

Coffee, friends and stoked faces. Thanks for the morning ride, guys! If you live in LA, and can make it out on a 2-4 hour ride each Friday morning, follow @GoldenSaddleCyclery for the meetup time and location each Thursday. The ride begins at Intelligentsia Coffee in Silver Lake and ends at Free Coffee Friday at Mission Workshop, to ensure you’re good and caffeinated all day.

We’ll see you at the All-City GSC Happy Hour Ride this afternoon. Enjoy the weekend!

Outershell Makes the Best On-the-bike Camera Bag
Outershell Camera Bag-1

I get this question all the time: “How do you carry your camera on your bike?” and the answer varies. It depends on the bike and the camera used, different cameras require various amounts of space and have varying weights. More on that later, but for now, let’s look at the best on-the-bike camera bag for medium-sized cameras I’ve ever used.

Outershell’s Drawcord Handlebar Bag isn’t a “camera bag” per se, but it is with one simple hack.
