I love when two brands come together for a project like this. Cadence is known for their performance cycling kits, for men. Machines for Freedom is known for their exceptional fit and quality kits, for women. So when Cadence wanted to make a kit for women, they contacted Machines for Freedom to supply the fit and performance of their kits with a Dustin Klein-illustrated Cadence design. The result is one of my favorite collaborations this year.

You can order these bags, in a variety of colors at Randi Jo Fab for $45 each.
Two years ago, this would be a bike that only a custom framebuilder could deliver. Raleigh’s new Stuntman all road checks all the boxes with its retro-inspired paint, Reynolds 631 tubing, 1x drivetrain, thru-axles, clearance for a 50mm tire and even a dropper, all for $2,499. Head to Raleigh to see more!
KEIU means “welcome rain” in Japanese and when you have the right gear, you can do just that. SWRVE’s new waterproof rain gear line includes an anorak, a full zip jacket with removable hood and a vest. All three are fully-taped and made from Teflon™Shield+® waterproof fabric. There are vents and pockets to keep you comfortable and they come in a matte marled finish. Check out all the details at SWRVE.
I love products like this. Ones with multi-functionality built into a tight, clean package. The Mission Workshop Albion shirt is part down jacket and part rain jacket. While it doesn’t pack down into a pocket, or completely protect you from rain, it appears to do a good job at keeping you warm and dry in cold, inclement weather. Check out more information at Mission Workshop.
I cannot OD from OD. I cannot OD from OD. 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. These will ship on Monday. Sorry SOLD OUT!

“Advocate Cycles is the first bike brand to pledge 100% of after-tax profits to be donated to cycling advocacy efforts. To coincide with IMBA’s World Summit this week in Bentonville, AR, they have created a limited run of 30 frames from their Hayduke model, with custom art designed by Adam Turman that reflects a singletrack trail, and all the parts of the earth around it. These 30 frames will be sold through Advocate Cycle’s dealer and direct sales channels for $800. Each purchase will include a free 1-year membership to IMBA, with the entire purchase price going to IMBA’s Dig In Campaign.”

We can’t get these posters up on the site before they sell out. At least that was the case with the original prints of this design by 100 Copies. The Tree of Joy sold out so fast that they felt compelled to sell some artist proofs of the design. Head to 100 Copies now to see more details.
