Teaming up with Fairends, the Athletic has just released four wool caps, donning their two logos. These caps are made in the USA and in stock now at the Athletic’s webshop.
A is for attack and P is for piste are just two of the details in this Eddy Merckx Alphabet poster.
Our friend Justin has been using this flip of the US Forest Service for his Department of Shredding stickers and right now, he’s running a pre-order for these two bottle designs. If you’re into them, head to Get Rad Do Work.
Using the same materials as their men’s longsleeve merino jerseys, Search and State designed a cut specifically for women. These cold weather pieces will fit perfectly in your current kit selection, are made in New York City and are in stock now. Check out more information at Search and State!
Holiday gift guides always cause a bit of confliction with me. The website is already consumer-driven in a lot of ways and I feel like many of the products we feature here are good purchases, year-round, so it almost feels repetitive to culminate them all in a end-of-year gift guide.
That said, the way I feel about consumerism can be summed up in two statements: Consume only if you need to and buy local when you can. We live in a society, where, especially around the holidays, people are pressured to buy loved ones shit they don’t need. I know this is a relatively cynical or negative attitude to have around this time of year, but I just wanted to be lucid with my intentions here.
These products are (mostly) all made in the USA, built to last and will hopefully be around for many more holiday seasons to come. As with previous product lists we’ve posted over the years, all of these goods have been thoroughly vetted and abused to ensure they’re worth your hard-earned money. And yeah, they’re not necessarily cycling-related. I hope you enjoy and if you have any comments, concerns or would like to leave your favorites in the comments, feel free to do so! (more…)
You like colors? Or stripes? What about stripes with colors and fades galore? Team Dream’s latest drop has landed and it’s all shipping this week, meaning in the US, you’ll get it in time for the holidaze. Head to Team Dream’s Web Shop for more.
We’ve restocked the Olive Drab and Desert Tan Radavist bottles and will be shipping these out next week. Be advised, however with the holiday season, these might take a while to get to you, especially if you live outside the US.
Olive drab is a timeless color and one that, as you can tell, is not going anywhere. It, paired with desert tan, are personally my two favorite tones. We kept it simple this round, with two bottles in two colors, with one design. In stock now in high numbers and shipping worldwide. Scoop up a pair of Radavist Olive Drab or a pair of Radavist Desert Tan bottles below for $20 a pair + shipping.
*Please note, if you order two sets, you have to pay for shipping twice because of the postage rate doubling when the package increases that much (over 12″ long) in size. I’ve tried to bring the rate down but it won’t work. Apologies.
**Also, we had some international orders returned from our local office, so if you’re still waiting on your previous order, they went out yesterday. Again, apologies.
SORRY SOLD OUT!

This is the twelfth layout of the Radavist 2016 Calendar, entitled “the Ladder” Shot with a Canon 1dx and a 24-70 f2.8 in the Ben Lomond National Park, Tasmania.
Ben Lomond national park is renown all over Australia for its skiing. The locals say “if you can ski Ben Lomond, you can ski anywhere” due to its rocky landscape and shallow, often frozen snow. The same can be said about Ben Lomond’s infamous “Jacob’s Ladder” climb. A series of snaking dirt switchbacks ascend to the top of Ben Lomond Mountain at 5,150 ft and resemble many of the iconic European road climbs, but it’s all dirt! If you can climb this road and the climb’s approach through the Tassie bush, you should have no problem tackling any other ride!

For the past two years, Yonder Journal has traveled the globe to investigate and report on bikepacking / ultra-lightweight bicycle touring. They called this project Dead Reckoning. The team at Yonder Journal felt that a project of this magnitude demanded a life outside of the internet, something you could hold in your hands, something with weight, a physical source of inspiration and contemplation, a book of pictures so exquisitely crafted that even a quick glance, a mere flip of the pages, would incite a riot of adventurous inspiration.
Introducing the Dead Reckoning Year(s) Book. A compendium of two years worth of dirt napping, bike pushing, and adventure voguing.
Stats? This is thing is 9″x12″, perfect bound, and 160 pages. It features nearly 200 color photographs and is printed in the USA.
The Year(s) Book is on pre-order sale through December 8th. Head over to their store for the full details.
