Everyone’s always looking for good, solid, randonneur and porteur racks. Especially in all-black. Rawland Cycles just stocked their shelves with their new racks, reasonably priced for $70 and $80. Head over to Rawland to see more.
“I love all kinds of bikes, and all different types of riding, but I am never quite sure where any of them will take me. Our latest adventure on wheels is an FBM built in collaboration with our friends at Endpoint. This new touring frame and fork is a bad ass bike called the Hunter/ Gatherer features the combined effort of some great people, stoked on bikes, looking to have some fun! We hope you will join us…” – Steve Crandall

Got a bike with rack mounts but having a hard time finding a rack that will work? Maybe it’s a disc brake bike and the caliper is in the way? Whatever the reason, the gents at Compass have designed a rack, dubbed the UD-1, that will work with *most* bikes. Head over to Compass to read up on it.
Dynaplug makes tubeless tire repair kits, small enough to fit in your tool roll or jersey pocket, in a number of repair widths to fit just about any hole you’d encounter on the trail or road. Now, they’ve just teased their new Dynaplug Air repair tool. Patch that hole and fill your tire with a cO2 at once. Sign me up!
With flat mount brakes, a carbon seat tube and titanium main tubes, the latest from No22 Bicycles is one of the slickest looking disc road bike on the market. At first glance, even I didn’t notice the disc rotors… The Aurora is made in the USA and backed with a 10-year warranty. Check out more information on the Aurora at No22.
Ok, yeah, technically there is an “embargo” on this release for tomorrow, but you know what? I don’t care. Jeff is crashing at my house while he’s here in LA, and I hauled all my camera gear up to an overlook to photograph this bike at sunset, so I’m posting it a few hours before the embargo.
That means a few things: there’s no link for this bike on the All-City site yet, so you can’t get every single spec and detail. Edit: well, they just pushed it live…
I can tell you the size 55cm weighs 20lbs on the nose (the 52cm pictured comes in under 20lbs), completely stock and the new Whisky carbon fork was developed specifically by All-City for this bike. The new fork has the same rake and tire clearance, yet weights 1.45lbs lighter than the steel fork. These frames are still made from Columbus Zona tubing.
Currently, there will no longer be steel forks offered on the Mr. Pink. The Whisky fork is replacing them. A bit of intel however: All-City is making a limited run of pink Whisky forks for all the current owners of last year’s model to buy and as you can see, the new Mr. Pink is an homage to the classic Motorola Cycling Team. Yay, Merckx!
We love the Mr. Pink here at the Radavist. If you wish to read my review, check it out in the Related Entries in the left column. Also, Whisky will be offering this 1 1/8″ fork in their 2017 lineup. More on that later. For now, check out more photos below and see full specs at All-City. (more…)
I get this question all the time: “How do you carry your camera on your bike?” and the answer varies. It depends on the bike and the camera used, different cameras require various amounts of space and have varying weights. More on that later, but for now, let’s look at the best on-the-bike camera bag for medium-sized cameras I’ve ever used.
Outershell’s Drawcord Handlebar Bag isn’t a “camera bag” per se, but it is with one simple hack.
Portland’s Broken and Coastal magazine is now available for free web reads, downloads and print. In this edition, “Kyle Emery-Peck documents BMXers that ride Mountain Bikes; Kelli Samuelson shows us why running an elite-level women’s cycling team is Worth the Sweat; Marius Nilsen takes us on a Norwegian adventure, climbing over 10,000 meters in two days.”

Meant for commuters on the go, Taylor Stitch’s Civic line is sparked by the busy life of city living and uses fabrics that are naturally wicking and maintain their form. Made in San Francisco from merino and other active fabrics, for men and women, the Civic line is currently in a crowd-sourcing stage, where you can save lots of money by funding each of these garments. Check out the full lineup at Taylor Stitch.
The crew over at the Vanilla Workshop have added some unique products to their online shop, including these Surprise Me art prints. If you or someone you know has a Speedvagen or one on order, this would be the perfect piece of wall art for their bike room. Check out more at the Vanilla Workshop.
