SOLD OUT! The Radavist and Fairends Cotton Camp Hat
Radavist_Cap-5

It’s been over a year since our last run of these hats! I’ve known Ben from Fairends since the Freeman Transport days (R.I.P.) and I’ve always loved his made in the USA products. Camp hats are great. Also called twill caps, they’re a staple for any wardrobe. These camp hats are the blackest ever black cotton, with a Jackal embroidered on the front, with grey inlay and the Radavist script text on the back. The construction is super solid and the embroidery is impeccable. When the sun’s rays bake this fabric it looks awesome (see below.)

-100% Cotton Twill
– Unstructured cotton body
– One size fits all, adjustable with nylon webbing strap and plastic closure
– Made in the USA

$48 + Shipping ($5 domestic, $12 international). These will ship on Thursday and Friday of this week. SOLD OUT!

Più di Pegoretti: Design Students Products
Produkt_12

“Enthusiasm for cycling, commitment to your own work and the openness to learn new things from each other — that is the bond that unites the students from the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design and Dario Pegoretti, the master builder of top-quality, individual frames for racing bikes. For weeks he and the students wrestled with ideas and plans — thinking, drawing and designing. The many ideas finally gelled into a singular project: Più di Pegoretti.”

Anyone who’s attended design school, can attest to at least one professor who has singlehandedly changed their outlook on the world. I’d imagine Pegoretti would be such a professor. Check out the Più di Pegoretti project and see what his students came up with this semester!

Pedal ED: Ultralight Baselayer
PedalED_Baselayer

PedalED’s apparel is some of the finest on the market, yet unlike a lot of brands, their quality isn’t greatly offset by their consumer price, especially for either being made in Italy or Japan! These new Ultralight baselayers are $89 and come in a variety of sizes. Bring on the summer months with hot rides and yeah, meshed baselayers. Ever try one? Don’t knock it til you do.

MFS Spring Classics: Cobble Gobblers Cobble Goblin’ Cobble Goblins

The 2016 Manual for Speed campaign begins with the Spring Classics. If there is a better way to start off the year, we can’t think of one. And if we can’t think of one, that means one doesn’t exist. But what makes the Spring Classics so classic? Hmmm, could it be that the races travel through ancient and medieval European towns teeming with drunk David Guetta zombies? Is is it the unpredictable and vengeful weather conditions that torment the riders with flashes of sun, wind, rain, snow, and hail? Perhaps it’s the format of the races themselves, one-day winner-take-all affairs where winning means putting everything you have have on the line? Yes, yes, yes—and more. These races are the equivalent of knife fighting over an open grave or biting off your own tongue out of spite. These are scratching, clawing, blood, sweat, and tears affairs. You fail, your bike fails, the weather fails and it’s over, it’s an entire year before you get another chance. All this means that these races present the opportunity for a truly transformative experience, a platform for the uncanny and the beautiful. A true spectacle, and we’re here for the spectacle man!!!

This year we’ll be hitting the Tour des Flandres (Ronde van Vlaanderen), Paris-Roubaix, Amstel Gold Race, Flèche Wallone, and Liège-Bastogne-Liège. That’s right, we’re covering all the big dogs, the Classic’s Classics, nah’mean? Of course we’re not just going to Europe to cover the races. We’re talking about Fan Clubs, MFS Cribz, Chillers, Barricade Butts, Barricade Pups, Casual Baguettes, and everything else you’ve come to expect from Manual for Speed and more, what exactly more is for the time being.

Want all the HOT HOT HOT MFS Cobble Action? Then take the leap.

Patagonia’s Dirt Craft MTB Shorts
24575_RATN

It’s been a while since Patagonia offered mountain bike-specific apparel but their return looks to be triumphant. These new Dirt Craft MTB shorts are just one of their offerings, yet look to be the most bike-specific item on the list. In fact, I’m sure they’d be more than ideal for touring as well. They’ve got all the details you’d want in a resilient short made to take a beating on the bike and best of all, they make them for women too. See the full MTB line at Patagonia.
