Where did Prolly is Not Probably go?
It is still here, and then some. PiNP was one person’s opinion and voice. Now we are a collective – a community of diverse opinions and rich stories.
What does the Radavist mean?
Rad + Atavist = RADAVIST
Why does a porpoise surf a wave, or a sea otter slide down a rock? Atavism is a primal trait in humans and animals that drives us to do what we do – what ought to come naturally. Atavism is why we ride the way we ride; From mashing the city on a track bike to shredding the trails on full suspension. Take the time to get rad.
This is the tenth layout of the Radavist 2017 Calendar, entitled “Autumn Contrast” Shot with a Leica M10 and a 50mm f1.4 lens in Lone Pine, California.
“If contrasting hues and tones is what you’re looking for on your road rides, Owens Valley is where to go, particularly the surrounding mountain roads in Lone Pine.”

For those cold mountain descents and all-day winter rides, Café du Cycliste has designed the Albertine, a synthetic down cycling vest, made from Primaloft Active to provide a mix of insulation and extreme breathability. I’ve used a similar product for years and believe it or not, you’ll want to wear it more than you’d think. Check out more at Café du Cycliste.
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…

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.
