From the ashes of Cog Magazine comes Two, the next stage in Peter D’Antoni’s documentation of cycling culture. While the stories in Two, issue 01 are a bit dated, like for instance my Pacific Coast Tour from 2010, the magazine promises to be a photo-heavy publication for all of you who love cycling.
Pick up a copy of Two at their online shop.

This mysterious tape landed itself on Wilis’ No 22 Broken Arrow and other bikes here on the Radavist over the past few months. A lot of you asked what it was, speculated, made bets, offered to sell your souls. Well, no need to do the latter. It’s in stock now at Manual for Speed. In case you missed that subtlety in the last post. Designed by Dan Funderburgh, influenced from architectural tessellations (my favorite), and made by Cinelli, this stuff will be sure to sell out today.
For the most part, I only wear sunglasses on the road, at least here in Austin anyway. With all the sharp, spiky plant life here, sometimes I’d force myself to wear eyewear but was never 100% content with it. I’ve always had an issue with how sunglasses read the splotchy light found in the woods on my local trails. It was either intense and white, or shaded and dark, leaving little to no middle ground or time to adjust and it was difficult to make out details.
A few of my friends here started wearing these Oakley Prizm Trail sunglasses and swore by them for trail clarity, so I picked up a pair. Sure enough, after wearing these glasses for a few rides, the difference was clear. Let me clarify that, they made a huge difference. Oakley achieves this through a material they call Plutonite and while it sounds like a marketing ploy, the performance backs it up incredibly well.

Dream ér Stage Race Leaders Jersey
We all know Team Dream makes some great gear but this season’s drop has really raised the bar for the brand.

The local bike shop has undergone a bit of stress over the past decade. Online sales from steep discount sites have crippled many shops, forcing them to close, so anytime a LBS stays open for 20 years, it’s worth noting. While River City Bicycles is far from my own local shop, they’ve always treated me like one of their own when I’m in Portland.
Congrats to the team and the community for two decades in the industry. If you’ve never been to RCB and you find yourself in Portland, it’s well worth the visit!
Oh and great freaking cap guys!
