Ass Savers for the Ritte Women’s Team
as-rwt-press_02

Stoked on this one and Jesse, great photos!

“Today Ass Savers announces a partnership with the Ritte Women’s Team and launches a team edition from which 100% of proceeds will be donated to the Southern California-based team’s funds for traveling to the Rás na mBan women’s bike race in Ireland this September.”

Read on for the full press-release and more photos and head over to Ass Savers to scoop one of these Ritte Women’s Team editions.

Ass Savers Jungho Kim shared his thoughts on the company’s sponsorship of the Ritte Women’s Team:

“At Ass Savers, we feel that as a company we should be supporting cycling equally and at as many levels as we can. Yes, this is a male dominated sport and that’s something which is quite apparent if you look. When we first started talking with the Ritte Women’s Team we found that they share the same kind of lightheartedness and enjoyment of cycling that we have, and of course they’re super dedicated to their sport and they take it very seriously. It just seemed natural to collaborate with them and we’re really excited to support women’s cycling.”

The team will use the proceeds to help take them to Ireland where they will participate in the country’s premier women’s stage race which takes place over six stages in five days and covers 427km. This is the second year running that the Ritte Women’s Team will compete in the event.

Ritte Sponsor Coordinator and rider Kelli Samuelson commented, “The Ritte Women’s Team is more then excited about this partnership, after five days of racing in the rain and mud in Ireland in 2013 we look forward to having our asses saved by Ass Savers. We look forward to a growing partnership with such a great company that is supporting women’s cycling.”

The Ritte Women’s Team Edition is available for €7.99 exclusively from Ass-Savers.com. Worldwide shipping is available for free with the purchase of three or more.

Fairweather Tires Have Landed at Velo Orange
700x28 Rust profile

The Fairweather tires are incredible. Why? Because they’re made by Panaracer in Japan, in a selection of colors and we all know Panaracer is legit. Up until now, you couldn’t buy them Stateside, so head over to Velo Orange to see their new stock!

The 38c Cruising tire is very nice…

UNREAL SPEED: Josh Bryceland’s Race Run at Mont Sainte Anne

UNREAL! The speed here is just unreal. There is no substitute for full-on-blasting and Josh Bryceland does just that, take a helmet top seat for Josh’s race run from last weekends race in Mont Saint Anne. Up at the first split Josh would eventually end up in second place. What is amazing is how smooth and effortless this entire run is, there are almost no impacts, stalls, or hard hits. This is so hard to believe onces you have taken a look at the track from other vantage points. Its as if they created the course by shelling a swath of land with mortar fire and then taped off a thin section of it down the side of the mountain. Impressive.

SEA-TEAGUExSizemoreBicycles_DENNY1

Hey, every single vote counts. It appears that Teague x Sizemore won the 2014 Oregon Manifest Bike Design Project!

“Voters have spoken and declared Seattle’s Denny the winner of the Bike Design Project’s design/build competition!  The Denny wowed voters with its ingenious handlebar lock design, unique fender system, automatic shifting and modern styling.

What an amazing week!  We received over 136,000 visitors during our seven day voting period;  viewers from all over the world have seen our five entry bikes. (Hello Denmark!)

Thanks to everyone who voted and sent us enthusiastic comments – all five of the Bike Design Project bikes have received an avalanche of praise and admiration.  Watch their videos here to revisit their many features.

Our manufacturing partner Fuji Bikes will be taking the Denny into production – in the future, you can own a Denny!”

Congrats to Teague and Sizemore! I can’t wait to see these bikes rolling into production.

Knog introduces the Qudos Action Light

Knog has branched out from the world of cycling lights and lamps to the [qudos] action lighting system. In short, it’s a light for your GoPro, but it can do much more:

“The [qudos] action is designed with GoPro HERO® aesthetics in mind. But it also works with other action camera’s like Sony Action Cam and Garmin VIRB that have conversion mounts. And with a cold shoe adaptor you can use it with your DSLR and tripod. Even in the day, the [qudos] action provides a great fill light for all cameras.”

For you GoPro enthusiasts and professionals, head over to Knog for more!

Knog even did a comparison video, showcasing shots made with the [qudos] and without.

This is Peaty – Shredding and Partying

The Radavist 2014 Calendar: August
RAD_AUGUST2014-800

This is the eighth layout of the Radavist 2014 Calendar, entitled “Hot Summer”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.

In Texas, we can ride two times during the day: early morning and late, late afternoon. The sun just cooks us the rest of the day, so each night, we take to the hills and watch the sun set on Central Texas.

Troy Brosnan Proves Can’t Wrong in BC

This video needs very little explanation, but here ya go!

“Troy Brosnan walked away from the last round of the UCI World Cup Downhill as the new Overall leader going into the recent month long break. He has spent that last month having nothing but fun on his bike. Exploring new terrain, challenging himself to new environments and conditions, pushing harder than ever…all in the sprit of fun. As Troy enters the next round of the World Cup this weekend in Mont Saint Anne, he will do so for the first time with all eyes on him – as the leader, not a follower. A leader who has been out having nothing but fun doing what he loves on two wheels. But fun can’t make you faster.”

So sick.

SOLD OUT: The Radavist Sigil 26oz Purist Bottles
Radavist_Bottles-3

I’m a pretty simple guy when it comes to products. I like black jerseys, black t-shirts, black decals and yes, black bottles. You can’t sell black on black though, so for the Radavist’s first bottles, I went with the Specialized’s Purist in a 26oz (it’s summer, drink up!), Watergate top, trans grey with black printing. Printed with “The Radavist” “Rubber Side Up” on the top and the Jackal with the Rune Sigil on the bottom.

These will look good on any bike and even better a bit scuffed up.

Swoop up a set (2 bottles) below for $25 shipped in the US, $35 shipped worldwide. SORRY SOLD OUT Each set will come with stickers.

SORRY SOLD OUT

A Look at Industry and Ti Cycle’s Solid Bike Design Project Concept
industry-ti-cycles-solid-bike-product-concept-8

With the Oregon Manifest’s Bike Design Project going on this week, Industry and Ti Cycle‘s entry is probably the most high-tech in terms of construction technique. All other bikes were brazed by traditional frame building techniques, yet had a design language that spoke of a far more modern assemblage process.

While I was really stoked on the Teague x Sizemore bike, the Ti Cycle’s construction process is truly innovative, boasting a connected, 3-d printed titanium manufacturing method. The parts for the frame that are titanium are printed and then welded together, a process that piqued my interest when I first saw it… Especially with all the integration built right into the frame and cockpit.

The team at Industry sent over their studio shots, as well as other information, but I really just want to focus on the bike itself, because to me, it is the most unique frame in the competition.

There’s still time to vote on your favorite design at the Bike Design Project and see more photos of the process and the bike below.

… of how much #LASucksForCycling. Head over to Team Dream for a few more 35mm jammers.

I miss that town all the time. Actually, I just miss the West Coast, period. Luckily, this weekend, Lauren and I are leaving for a proper vacation. We’ve got a week to drive from Portland to Los Angeles (which isn’t nearly enough time) and I’ll be shooting vacation photos the whole way.

Hopefully, if you have never been down HWY 1, the next week will make you want to do so.

How’s everyone’s summer going?
