Meant for commuters on the go, Taylor Stitch’s Civic line is sparked by the busy life of city living and uses fabrics that are naturally wicking and maintain their form. Made in San Francisco from merino and other active fabrics, for men and women, the Civic line is currently in a crowd-sourcing stage, where you can save lots of money by funding each of these garments. Check out the full lineup at Taylor Stitch.
The crew over at the Vanilla Workshop have added some unique products to their online shop, including these Surprise Me art prints. If you or someone you know has a Speedvagen or one on order, this would be the perfect piece of wall art for their bike room. Check out more at the Vanilla Workshop.

We’ve seen a few of these built up on the site, with the best yet to come. All-City’s Log Lady singlespeed mountain frames are a lot of fun to build up and ride either as rigid or hardtails. Head on over to their blog to read their newest posting about these bikes and head to your local shop for ordering.
Teaming up with Fairends, the Athletic has just released four wool caps, donning their two logos. These caps are made in the USA and in stock now at the Athletic’s webshop.

Our friend Justin has been using this flip of the US Forest Service for his Department of Shredding stickers and right now, he’s running a pre-order for these two bottle designs. If you’re into them, head to Get Rad Do Work.
Using the same materials as their men’s longsleeve merino jerseys, Search and State designed a cut specifically for women. These cold weather pieces will fit perfectly in your current kit selection, are made in New York City and are in stock now. Check out more information at Search and State!
Holiday gift guides always cause a bit of confliction with me. The website is already consumer-driven in a lot of ways and I feel like many of the products we feature here are good purchases, year-round, so it almost feels repetitive to culminate them all in a end-of-year gift guide.
That said, the way I feel about consumerism can be summed up in two statements: Consume only if you need to and buy local when you can. We live in a society, where, especially around the holidays, people are pressured to buy loved ones shit they don’t need. I know this is a relatively cynical or negative attitude to have around this time of year, but I just wanted to be lucid with my intentions here.
These products are (mostly) all made in the USA, built to last and will hopefully be around for many more holiday seasons to come. As with previous product lists we’ve posted over the years, all of these goods have been thoroughly vetted and abused to ensure they’re worth your hard-earned money. And yeah, they’re not necessarily cycling-related. I hope you enjoy and if you have any comments, concerns or would like to leave your favorites in the comments, feel free to do so! (more…)
