The carbon disc “all road” market is already pretty full, yet Raleigh found a way to elbow their way through the crowd with the Roker. At the Sea Otter Classic, they unveiled this new machine. The Roker is basedd off the Tamland geometry, with a slightly longer wheelbase, lower bottom bracket and new features like a third bottle cage mount, thru-axles and internal routing.
To further increase versatility, it has hidden fender mounts on the inside of the stays and comes competitively priced with a Tiagra build kit coming in around $3,000 or Ultegra for around $4,000.
This is literally straight from the factory, so expect more details to follow. Check out more photos below!

Rocky Mountain was the first company to take a stab at the 27.5+ tire size, with 2.8″ tires mounted to 45mm rims appearing on their Sherpa concept bike at the Sea Otter show this time last year. After a year of further tweaking, an under-the-radar appearance on Gabe Tiller’s Pushwacking the Idaho Hot Springs Route story under engineer Lyle Vallie, and all the refinement necessary to bring this new platform to market, the production version of the Sherpa “overland” bike is ready to hit the shop floor.

Strawfoot’s kit bags have been restocked. These bags are perfect for keeping muddy, poison oak-covered shoes separate from your clean clothes in your luggage or home. The kit bags are made in Santa Cruz from charcoal duck cotton canvas with a water-resistant finish for $88. They measure 13″ x 9″ x 4″ and in my experience will fit a pair of shoes, gloves, bibs, and a jersey.

No matter how crazy kit designs have become, we like things simple over here. Much like the Radavist’s t-shirts, the Discharged Kit is a black base with a “discharge-like” off-white graphic print. Black because it won’t slow grease, dirt or other stains and because, well, why would you wear anything else?
Clean and simple, these kits come with a pair of bibs, a jersey, two sets of arm warmers that can be mix and matched between “the Radavist”, “Rubber Side Up” (looks great upside down), the Algiz array and Raidō array.

Originally founded in the early 1970’s by Stelio Belletti, the brand Stelbel has just risen from the dead with some exceptionally-designed frames. Stelbel brings their expertise of tig welding to offer everything from a modern road, to a track (don’t miss those track ends!) and cyclocross frame but that’s not all, there’s much more to see at Stelbel.
Cadence continues to roll out really well designed kits. This release is dubbed Tempo and it’s one of my favorites from the brand all year. Head over to see their offerings.
Our friends at Cuppow just released these Pfelt jar coozies to accompany 16oz widemouth jars. Made in the USA, from recycled plastic bottles, Pfelt is a durable material that is a perfect insulator for a hot glass jar. Drink coffee, tea, or just protect your jar from damage. The Cuppow lids are a personal favorite and these coozies make the setup even better.
These new Pfelt Jar Coozies are in stock now or you can buy a starter kit at Cuppow!
Mash somehow landed collaborations with a few luxury brands, namely Comme Des Garcons, Chanel, Gucci and LV. They’re sure to sell out fast, so head over to Mash to see the collection.
Twin Six’s affordable “do anything” frameset, the Standard Rando is now in stock at their site in gloss black or green. These frames tout a comfortable, yet non-sluggish wheelbase, a 45mm offset and come in sizing from 51cm to 59cm. Build them up as a cyclocross bike, or a light tourer / commuter with fenders and take your pick of 2x or 1x cable bosses.
Personally, I’m impressed with Twin Six’s bike lineup and for anyone looking for a $600 frame, the Standard Rando is a contender. Head over to see more information.
There’s a bit of Speedvagen coming to California later this month! Here’s the information from the Vanilla Workshop…
“The Vanilla Workshop is excited to announce our California Fit Tour. We will be packing the Money Truck up with bikes and goodies and heading down the coast, bringing our signature fit to San Francisco and LA. One of the most important components of a custom bike is the fit, and being fit by the man who will design and build your frame adds a level of control to the entire process…”
