When I saw Scott from Porcelain Rocket selling these buffalo plaid (Canadian Camo) roll top shred packs on his Instagram, I had to buy one for Morgan, knowing he’d be making his way from Canada down to Los Angeles this summer. So… what’s he do with it the first day? Buys a gallon of ice cream.

I absolutely love EE Cycleworks‘ caliper brakes and will say with confidence that they’re the best brakes I’ve ever ridden on a road bike. Problem is, their availability is often low to say the least. Today Cane Creek announced it’ll take over the manufacturing, distribution and marketing of EE Cycle Works. As of November 2016, Cane Creek will begin rolling out product, so stay tuned. Head to Fair Wheel Bikes’ blog to read the full scoop.
The newest shoes from Giro uses the best of both worlds by joining the convenience of a strap with the comfort of laces. The Sentrie Techlace uses an Easton EC70 carbon sole and a Boa system strap. Check out more information at Giro and expect your local dealers to receive stock later this year.
The Baphomet is a symbol, first drawn by Eliphas Levi, that represents balance in the universe. Over the years, it’s been heavily circulated throughout the “metal world,” from bands to bicycles. Bike Jerks plays homage to this century-old illustration with their Baphomet shirt. In stock now at Bike Jerks!
Yes, Compass made a ‘cross tire, just in time for ‘cross season. As with all their tires, there’s a story behind the design process of the Steilacoom. You should really go check it out at the Bicycle Quarterly blog and see more information at Compass.

“Together with Vince at Ponderosa Cyclery in Omaha, I’m excited to announce the launch of a project that is near and dear to both of us, and has been in the works for a while. The Anylander Pannier is a bag system that has been born out of a fondness for the style and function of traditional panniers combined with the need for technology that can handle the rough and tumble lifestyle of a backroads tourist.
As a pack system, we’ve found that we really like the usefulness, versatility, and size of panniers, as opposed to the popular, rack-less “bikepacking” style bag systems. However, when riding the rocky, extremely rough backroads of Western Nebraska, many panniers available do a less than perfect job handling the demands that we put on them. While we have found the durability and simplicity of bikepacking bags to be advantageous in some situations, the extremely stripped down nature of rack-less bags, as well as the detailed “tetris-styled” pack plan necessary to use them cramps our relaxed, easy going, “bring-a-few-luxury-items-if-not-the-entire-kitchen-sink” touring lifestyle.”
It’s never too late to enter the kit game, especially with two great introductory designs. Check out what Team Too Late’s got to offer at their web shop.
