As brands and their customers evolve, so do their products and one company where that is most true is All-City. For a company that started with fixed gears only, to move from road bikes, cross bikes, touring bikes, a mountain bike and now, a dedicated all-road racer. The Cosmic Stallion is the latest bike in the All-City catalog and it’s their best yet. (more…)
Max from 333fab has been working on this project for a while now. He’s calling the AirLandSea an “all-road/off-road” bike, with clearance for 27.5×2.25″ tires and fenders and all the details you’d expect from a custom bike. Handmade in Seattle, the AirLandSea features artwork by Kyler Martz on a sweet PNW-inspired three-color paint fade, size-specific tubing, and seven stock sizes to cover almost any rider.
The AirLandSea will be produced in a limited run of 20 bikes this fall, available as either a frame and fork or a complete build with a custom Ozette rando bag from Swift Industries and a rugged looking new decaleur designed by Max. Check out a few more photos below, and all the details at 333fab!
File this as one of those, no, I have no idea if you can buy these caps, but the story is great, product post. Head over to Circles’ blog to read a rough translation from Google about their visit to Montana to see our friends at Fairends.
I’m kind of a shorts hoarder. Each year, as the temperatures warm up so that the option for wearing jeans dissipates, I’m on the hunt for a few shorts options. Search and State’s newest apparel fits right into my wardrobe with these new OD green Field Shorts. Made in NYC and backed by SAS’ relentless pursuit of perfection, these shorts are in stock now at Search and State. Oh and they totally come in black too, don’t fret!
How’s this for a Merckx Monday, as well as an homage to all of road cycling’s greatest athletes. No doubt you’ve seen the work of Richard Mitchelson before.

“I love all kinds of bikes and different types of riding, but I am never quite sure where any of them will take me. Our latest adventure on wheels at FBM, a bad ass touring frame and fork call the Hunter / Gatherer, was designed in collaboration with our friends at Ride Endpoint and will be built in the FBM Machine Shop. Creating the Hunter / Gatherer was a combined effort of some great people, stoked on bikes, looking to have some fun! We hope you will join us…” — Steve Crandall
Sometimes, all black is the best. That’s the route Erik Nohlin takes when it comes to socks. As a part of their Bespoke collaboration collection, DeFeet has teamed up with Nohlin to make a run of, you guessed it, all black socks. Check out backing information at DeFeet and check out DeFeet’s interview with Erik below! (more…)
How’s a bit of flair to benefit charities for your Friday?

I love playful bicycle accessories, especially ones influenced by Japanese culture. Portland Design Works’ newest bottle cage is a side-access cage, made from a single sheet of lightweight 5052 alloy. Cut in the shape of a Maneki-neko (Japanese for “beckoning cat”), known worldwide as the “Lucky Cat.” They’re currently sold out, but you can back-order one from your local PDW dealer.
