Tomii Cycles: Scott’s CANVAS All-Day Road

The Tomii Cycles CANVAS “all-day” production road bikes are finding their way to new owners as we speak, with the latest being built up at Mellow Johnny’s by Jonathan. This build in particular checks all the boxes, while keeping to the CANVAS’ mantra of being a fast, long distance bike with the ability to pack a few items for the journey. This is a credit card tourer’s dream bike for a route like the Pacific Coast. See more at the Tomii Flickr!

Danny MacAskill Gives Santa Cruz’s Reserve Carbon Wheels a Beating

In the past, carbon wheels have been prohibitively expensive for many riders and Santa Cruz is looking to fix that. Their new Reserve carbon wheels with DT-Swiss 350 hubs retail for $1599 and or with Industry Nine Torch Hubs for $1899, with a lifetime warranty. But, the main question is, can these wheels withstand real riding? Well, Danny MacAskill takes them out for an afternoon ride…

VYNL Fights Hurricane Relief

Good on VYNL doing something to help out the hurricane relief effort!

“VYNL Fights teamed up with two primo local artists from Texas and Miami to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma climb out and rebuild. All the proceeds of each poster will go to either the American Red Cross, or a local (and vetted) charity.”

In case you can’t decide, VYNL also gives the option to get both posters at once. See more on these two designs below. (more…)

Mission Workshop Adds New Merino Core Colors

Over the years, Mission Workshop has made a handful of staples in my cycling apparel wardrobe and without a doubt, the Merino Core collection has been a game changer. I wear the long sleeve merino Perimeter shirts every time I hit the dirt and oftentimes, I’ll continue wearing them all day after the ride. They’re my camping staples, my touring staples and I’ll throw one in my camera bag if I’m going to be out after the sun sets. These shirts are durable, moth-hole resistant due to the nylon weave and best of all, look damn good in a plethora of earth tones. Head to Mission to see the full Merino Core lineup and if you’re in LA or SF, you can swing through one of their storefronts.
