I know it’s easy to geek out about ever piece of tech apparel brands like Mission Workshop develop and eventually put to market. I say “eventually” because sometimes it takes a while to make sure it’s ready. Take this Softshell Faroe Pullover for example. I’ve been wearing one since January and it’s safe to say it’s almost all I wear when I’m riding in an environment that demands it. That ranges from sunny days in the New Zealand mountains, where I want to keep the sun off my arms and neck, or a misty mountain hop in the Angeles Crest. Even here in Austin, with our hit-or-miss rainy spring weather.
This one garment has been put through the ringer and it’s still kicking. It’s lightweight (220g) and is constructed using Swiss-made Schoeller®-Dryskin fabric with Nanosphere® water repellent treatment. Schoeller is like the titanium of the fabric industry. What can’t it do? Camping, mountain biking, road cycling, touring, bike packing, its applications are endless.
Check out more at Mission Workshop and yeah, it might not be for everyone, but believe me when I say it’s one of my favorite pieces ever made from the brand. I’ll be taking it with me to Banff this week!
Got a pair of shit wheels kicking around on your 27.5 or 29’r? Tired of using a spanner to remove dents from your rims? Well, Pacenti wants you to trade those wheels in for a pair of their brand-spankin’ new MTB wheels. It’s easy. How easy? Send them your old used and abused Stan’s, Easton, or Mavic MTB wheels for a brand new pair of Pacentis and save 50% (Continental USA only). Head over to Pacenti to find out how in 5 easy steps and check out their wheel line at their web shop. Seriously, this is such a good idea. New wheels for $300 USD?!
After all the requests, I’ve decided to open up the Radavist Discharged Kit for pre-order tomorrow. It’ll run for only a week and should be delivered by the beginning of July. You’ll be able to order bibs, arm warmers and the jersey all separately, or all together. Hopefully this quells everyone’s need for an all-black kit and as always, thanks for the support.
The pre-order will open tomorrow at noon CST and will be open all week, until Monday, the 15th.
Continuing with the creativity, David at Death Spray Custom just released the third installment of the Deadly Sin Fork Collection with Gluttony. All you cupcake and donut fans will love this one. Man, these are looking so good. Check out more at Death Spray Custom.
A 2015 NAHBS favorite has finally landed online. The No 22 Bicycles Reactor road bike caught my attention this year at the show and still to this day makes me feel all adulterated with lust. Clean, minimal lines, custom hardware and a stance unmatched in the current production frame world. That’s my opinion anyway… Form your own opinion at No 22 and see more photos below.
Out of all the patterns and designs Search and State could have printed for their first non-solid color jersey, they chose Hawaiian. You can’t go wrong with that. Bring some summer shakka vibes to your road ride with the new Aloha S1 riding jersey. In stock now at Search and State.
Seagull Bags took a short hiatus to figure things out and move the brand in a few new directions, resulting in two new bag models. One of which is a do-all backpack, stepping away from Seagull’s previous silhouettes of messenger style backpacks. The Nightshift V2 was designed with exploration in mind. Or just standard day-to-day use. Cargo straps make it easy to bring a few extra items along and interior pockets keep things organized. Also new to the lineup is the Trail Buddy hip pack (or shred pack as I like to call them). Carry your tools, snacks, camera, one-hitter or even a burrito in it and hit the trail without worrying about a hydro pack.
All of Seagull’s bags are made in Columbus, Ohio.
A lot of people have asked for this kit to be restocked and I’m considering opening a pre-order to ensure everyone’s particularities can be addressed. This way, if you prefer a large jersey and medium bib, that can happen. So here’s a query to the readers. Would you like a week long pre-order with an end of June, early July delivery?
Let us know in the comments. Andre’s been waiting to ship more kits!
I love seeing new school and old school cycling brands come together on really simple designs like this longsleeve t-shirt from Cadence and Ritchey. Head over to Cadence to swoop!

This one’s been a long time coming! Our friends at Ringtail have finally launched their new web shop, which is stocked with their Breeze Breaker jacket, Breezer vest, Don Cherry cap and Pocket Trumpet cap. All of these products are made in the Los Angeles area, with details that are inspired by many of the rides you’ve read about on this site. While it might be a small initial launch, Ringtail is aspiring to become a great American-made cycling apparel brand.
Head over to Ringtail to see what’s up. If you see your size sold out in something you want, don’t fret there’s more stock coming next week.
