Mission Workshop: the Meridian Collection

After spending a few days in Japan walking around in the pouring rain while wearing my Meridian jacket, I can’t help but sing its praises. Now Mission Workshop’s best jacket comes in three options, including a sleeveless, hooded vest for when keeping your core warm and dry is of the utmost importance. Head over to MW to check that out, along with the Meridian Alpine and Meridian Phase jackets.

The SimWorks Potluck Rack
SimWorksPotluck

Made from Chromoly by Nitto and available in two finishes: black or chrome, the SimWorks Potluck rack has everything you need in a touring or commuting rack. The large platform was designed with summer BBQs or potluck dinners in mind, specifically sized to hold a platter, a six pack of beer or to have a large Wald basket zip-tied to. Or you can use the rack for touring, with enough platform space to secure a randonneur bag and low-rider mounts for panniers.

This is hands down my favorite item I brought back from Japan and I can’t wait to install it on my touring bike. You can order one now through SimWorks USA but do so fast, these aren’t going to be in stock for long!

ORNOT Cycling: the Bar Bag
ornot_barbag-7_1024x1024

Handlebar bags are the best. I use one to carry my camera, or tools, a jacket or even a corndog. Think of them as a reserve tank for those long rides where your jersey pockets are already stuffed and you would rather not wear a backpack. ORNOT clearly feels the same way about bar bags, which is why they teamed up with Rickshaw to make their own. Head over to ORNOT for all the details!
