Golden Saddle Cyclery Caps Re-Up
GSC_Caps-new

Golden Saddle’s iconic caps are back in stock. Made in the USA by Pace, these are one of the most popular cycling caps to date in my opinion. Swoop one or the pair over at GSC.

BokanevZine

Photographer Andy Bokanev recently compiled a selection of photos from this past year’s cyclocross season into a 45-page zine. The zines will be made in Seattle, in a limited edition of 200 are are only $20 with domestic shipping coming to $3 and international $10 with a late February delivery.

That’s a pretty good deal. If you’re interested in ordering, head over to Bokanev’s site.

Shinola Manufactures Field Watches for Filson
Shinola_Filson

Detroit’s Shinola has produced a line of watches for one of the oldest outdoors companies in the US. Filson continues to manufacture almost all of their apparel in the USA, so it would make sense that they would join forces with Shinola, who assembles all their watches at their Detroit facility. These watches look amazing. Dark earth tones like olive drab and many references to classic timepieces really go a long way for the Shinola aesthetic.

While these watches shouldn’t hold the Made in USA label Filson has proclaimed, it’s still a step in the right direction for the United States and domestic production.

See the entire line at Filson.

Royal H Cycles: John’s Belt Drive Rohloff
Royal_H_Belt_Drive-01


Photos by Eric Baumann

Belt drive commuters make a lot of sense in cities like Boston and New York. Road grime, dirt, salt and other contaminates hardly effect the system and personally, it’s always interested in seeing this technology paired with a Rohloff on a custom steel bike.

Royal H Cycles keeps me tuned in and this recent project is maddeningly beautiful. See more of it at the Royal H Flickr!

Bigger is Better with Velo Orange’s Mojave Cage
MojaveCage

The need to carry things bigger than your standard water bottle quickly becomes apparent when you’re bikepacking or touring in remote areas. A giant canister (32oz or 40oz) like a Nalgene, or the like can go a long ways, which is why I’m really loving the variety of larger cages we’re seeing spring up in the market.

Velo Orange’s Mojave Cage takes note of the elegance found in vintage cages and adds a bit of girth-gulping versatility with its large diameter opening. See more at Velo Orange.

Bombtrack’s Arise SSCX Frame in Action

The Arise is Bombtrack’s singlespeed drop bar bike, with clearance for bigger tires, canti or v-brake studs and a geometry dialed in for off-road riding. Its versatility is heightened even more by its removable cable guides and rear derailleur hanger, added to the track end dropouts. Need more information? Head to Bombtrack.

Daily Derailleur Shirts
DailyDerailleur

Matt Cardinal’s Daily Derailleur Instagram illustrations are amazing and after many requests, he’s begun putting them on t-shirts. So far, a Shimano shirt has popped up, with what appears to be a Paul derailleur shirt in queue. Head over to Matt’s Instagram to follow the sales and TeeSpring to order one of the Shimano shirts.

Edit: Matt just updated the TeeSpring site to include a web store with three designs, including the Paul derailleur.

What is This, Eddy Merckx?
EddyMerckx70

So, a reader sent this over, with the subject line “I think this is ok to share” and all that was in the body was this photo. A quick glance at the Eddy Merckx Facebook reveals it’s a tig-welded steel bike, commemorating Eddy’s 70th birthday, which would make sense, but details like pricepoint, country of origin, tubing, etc, etc, etc, seem to be missing.

Personally, I’d rather see a lugged Columbus frame with a steel fork. As far as pricepoint, I’m gonna guess this bike is upwards of $10k, complete… Does anyone have any more information on this?

Turns out, Peloton has the full scoop. Head over there to see more information. It’s stainless steel, hence the tig welding and made in Belgium. Oh and it’s $17k!
