Thanks for your orders, I’ll keep you updated on the kits!
I get so many people asking where I bought my Porcelain Rocket for Hunter Cycles “fanny pack”. Well, Rick’s got a new stock of Shred Packs up on his site, along with caps, stickers, patches and those lovely Nugz.
Head over to the Hunter Cycles web shop to pick one up.
In the spirit of the Tour, Ty at the Foot Down made a run of El Diablo prints and shirts.
“Didi Senft has been a regular fixture on the slopes of the greatest climbs of the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia since 1993. More commonly known as El Diablo he appears dressed as the devil running and jumping alongside the riders and bringing an extra spark of excitement to any stage. Everyone loves Didi!”
Score one at the Foot Down.
I caught wind of this while I was in England and I’m way into the concept:
“Brooks England and Levi’s® Commuter™ are teaming up to create a Limited Edition saddle: the Cambium Denim, exclusively available this Summer at Levi’s® Commuter™ Workspaces in Brooklyn, Los Angeles and London, and from October at the Brooks online shop.
Levi’s® Commuter™ is partnering with Brooks England to produce a special bike saddle manufactured from recycled Levi’s® denim. The saddle will be a Limited Edition version of Brooks’ newest product, the Cambium C17, which uses vulcanized rubber pressing techniques to create a comfortable, waterproof, and long-lasting saddle whose features align with the performance benefits of the Levi’s® Commuter™ collection. Teams from Levi’s® Commuter™ and Brooks England are taking this opportunity to work together to create a product of unique beauty and utility.”
See more at Brooks, including availability and information on the Levi’s® Commuter™ Workspaces.
The Tracko “Snow Splinter” pre-order closes today. I am really stoked on this kit, because it’s so subtle. Subtle like Kyle’s gentle touch. Pre-order a jersey for men, jersey for women, bibs for men and shorts for women at Tracko’s web shop!

Hey guys, sorry for the delay, I wanted to make sure I had enough stem caps and stickers to put inside each order before the kits went out. They’ll be going out this week. Those who are emailing me, asking about a pre-order. It’ll go up Friday. I wanted to get this first run shipped out.
I will be doing women’s jerseys and would consider doing cycling shorts (alternative for women to wearing men’s bibs), if there is enough of an interest. So, if you’re a woman and would prefer shorts, over men’s bibs, let me know so I can add a line item.
Thanks for your patience! Hugs and kisses.
I feel like I haven’t had time to do much riding here in Austin this summer, but I did manage to get in a few rides in the new PEdAL ED garments I picked up in the UK while I was visiting during the L’Eroica Britannia.
PEdAL ED makes their wool cycling wear in Japan and their race-fit attire in Italy. Their look is quite unique, with some clever detailing, akin to Japanese clothing design and yet, it’s highly functional.
I’ll be putting some more miles into their Raku bibs before doing a proper review, but so far so good! Don’t miss that Okabe jersey or Kaidu jersey either – I wear my Kaidu on the cross or MTB. It’s one of the nicest jerseys I’ve worn…
At the end of the day, it’s not easy to make products domestically, yet PEdAL ED really nailed it. Check out more products at PEdAL ED!
I have these and they look so damn good… I even gave FYXO the Eyeshades, since I couldn’t pull them off.
FYXO has literally been Since Forever. Watching Andy and Melodie push the FYXO to new boundaries and limits, both in their products and their events, like the Roobaix, is impressive to watch.
When I first met FYXO, he was riding around Japan with a Nikon, shooting photos of bikes and people at CMWC. He may not be aware, but guys like me (and Tracko for that matter) were so stoked on what he was doing in OZ.
I don’t know why I have this long-winded introduction for his new Carrera Pantani kits. Sure, they’re rad but the context is a killer. One of the first photos I ever saw of Andy, he was wearing the vintage version of this design, sitting at a payphone, in Sydney at CMWC.
Why did it take FYXO so long to make the homage kit? I have no idea, but the timing couldn’t be better. It was a pleasure to photograph this kit, in the overcast, Wintery skies on Andy’s local climb, Humevale – where he broke his neck many moons ago…
See some more shots below and scoop up one of the limited edition Carrera Pantani kits at FYXO.
