For fans of the Jones H-Bar that are looking for a bit of rise to accomodate a more upright riding position, look no further. The SG 2.5 Loop H-Bar has a 2.5″ inch rise, allowing you to either remove your spacers or go even higher up. Personally, I think this bar looks great, see more for yourself at Jones.
Inspired by the Break-Away Carbon Road and Mount Cross, the new Outback Break-Away gives riders the stopping power of disc brakes, with clearances for larger tires and a road bike geometry, ideal for taking on long days on mixed terrain. These framesets are the epitome of Ritchey’s design ethos, in a modern, lightweight and practical package. I’ve seen one in person and the construction alone merits the pricepoint, which comes in around $3,150. You can see more details at Ritchey.

After this weekend’s Floyd’s of Los Angeles ride, I kept thinking to myself, we need more tandems! Handsome Cycles has created a Kickstarter campaign entitled “Ride More Together,” to raise money for people who may not be able to afford the Pillion, their new tandem model. The goal of this campaign is to be able to provide tandems to people who would otherwise not be able to ride a bike, specifically the blind. Handsome has partnered with the Vision Loss Resources of Minnesota to ride with blind students, so if you’d like to support this effort, check out their new Kickstarter.
Kitsbow makes high-quality cycling apparel in the US, yet at a price. A $150 merino sweatshirt might seem like a lot of money, but as I’ve found over the years with Kitsbow, it’ll be the best you’ll ever own and will last for years. While not every thing in their catalog is for me, I can spot their new classics a mile away. This Front Range Merino Sweatshirt will be a fall and winter trail staple!
