Portland Design Works: Full Metal Fenders™ + Fenderbot™ Special
fenderbot-pdw

The team at Portland Design Works have been waiting all summer to unleash this deal. Right now, you can get the Full Metal Fenders and a Fenderbot for $125, that’s 15% off MSRP. I have a set of these fenders and they are great, but it never rains in Austin!

At any rate, I’m sure it rains where you live, so check out more at PDW.

The Athletic: You Got This Socks
IMG_7499

The Athletic are doing their own kind of cancer awareness in October. They’ve done a pair of socks with Cait, which you can pick up at the Athletic and read up on the story here:

“Our friend Cait — you may know her under the moniker @attnkatdaley — had a knock down drag out fight with cancer a little while back. One of the things that she used to help guide her through the dark days was the moniker “You Got This” which she had tattooed on her body as a reminder. Read the story behind it here » What “You Got This” Means To Me.

Her friend (our illustration hero) Chris Piascik did the lettering, which he always does well. ”

Miss ya Cait!

Here’s a simple, yet functional (and customizable) product. I definitely have a few jerseys with holes and rust stains from pinning numbers and Race Dots avoid that with a magnetic retention system. See more at Race Dots.

The Radavist 2014 Calendar: October
RAD_October2014-800

This is the tenth layout of the Radavist 2014 Calendar, entitled “West Texas Roads”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.

Our trip from Vegas to Austin in my pickup truck was a blur, except for moments like this. Oh and Sedona. Sedona was rad. Anyway… The thing that sucks about traveling by car is that you never want to stop when you see a great road. After 13 hours of driving that day, we definitely stopped for this one…

For a high-res JPG, suitable for print and desktop wallpaper*, right click and save link as – The Radavist 2014 Calendar – October. Please, this photo is for personal use only!

Bell’s New Star Pro Road Helmet
Bell_Star_Pro-yellow

During my discussion with Bell at Interbike, I mentioned that the average consumer with any amount of eye for style or design, doesn’t really care about how aero their helmets are. We, if I may be so bold, would rather a helmet look good, keep us cold and protect our lives. Sometimes, however, style and aerodynamics overlap. In my opinion, that’s what the Bell New Star Pro is. An aero helmet with style…

With an innovative, closable “vent” system, these helmets not only offer aerodynamics, but I’d like to think, additional warmth during cold seasons.

Check out full specs below and see more at Bell.
